The increasing preferences for lightweight electronics and wearables are expected to propel the demand for TPEE in the coming years.

U.S. Thermoplastic Polyester Elastomer Market size and growth rate, 2023 - 2030

The market in the U.S. is predicted to experience significant growth in recent years, with several factors driving the market. Increasing demand for automotive components is predicted to be a primary driver of the global market throughout the forecast period. The surge in technological developments in TPEE production processes, along with consumer awareness of the health and environmental repercussions of plastics, are also predicted to boost the market growth.

The U.S. medical industry has witnessed significant growth in the thermoplastic polyester elastomer (TPEE) market. It is used in catheters, tubing, and seals owing to their several properties such as flexibility, lightweight, anti-fatigue, heat resistance, and others. The increasing use of TPEE in medical devices, instruments, and equipment is expected to boost production and development in the market.

Type Insights

Based on type, the injection molding vehicle segment accounted for the largest revenue share of over 68.0% in 2022. Injection molding is one of the most common techniques for processing TPEE. Injection molding grade TPEE is utilized in a variety of applications, including automotive parts, electrical and electronic components, and consumer items. The injection molding technology for thermoplastic polyester elastomers (TPEEs) is expected to drive growth in the TPEE market.

The growing demand for high-performance materials in a variety of end-use sectors is likely to boost the demand for injection molding grade TPEE. Injection molding provides high precision and repeatability to the resin, making it an ideal material for several end-use applications.

Global Thermoplastic Polyester Elastomer Market share and size, 2022

The extrusion molding is expected to grow at a significant rate over the forecast period. Extrusion molding for thermoplastic polyester elastomers is an integral process that is expected to contribute to the TPEE market growth. Extrusion molding helps to manufacture objects such as tubes, hoses, profiles, and films. Extruded TPEE weather-stripping, seals, and gaskets are employed in the construction industry, particularly in energy-efficient and green building designs.

End-use Insights

Based on end-use, the automotive segment dominated the market and accounted for the largest revenue share of over 129% in 2022. Increasing plastics usage in automotive components, as well as concurrent increases in heavy-duty vehicle production, passenger car production, and increased demand for electric vehicles, are likely to fuel growth over the projection period.

The rising penetration of electrical vehicles across the globe owing to the biocompatibility offered by the product is expected to boost the consumption and manufacturing of TPEE in the automotive industry. TPEE are used in a variety of applications in the automotive industry, including the production of high-quality automotive instrument panels, seat backs, airbag deployment doors, air intake ducting, wheel covers, dashboard components, door liners and handles, pillar trim, and consumer goods components, among others. In addition, TPEE is increasingly used to replace vulcanized rubber and flexible polyvinyl chloride (PVC), with the goal of reducing vehicle weight for higher fuel efficiency and lower CO2 and NOx gas emissions, along with achieving greater recyclability for environmental sustainability.

Medical and healthcare expenditures have also risen significantly in recent years, demanding rapid production of lightweight and durable medical equipment and gadgets. The segment is expected to increase at an exponential rate, mainly in emerging economies such as India, Indonesia, Thailand, Argentina, and Mexico.

Regional Insights

The Asia Pacific region dominated the market and accounted for the largest revenue share of over 32.30% in 2022. The increasing manufacturing sector is expected to fuel the demand for TPEE compounds in the automotive, industrial machinery, packaging, and electrical and electronics industries. TPEEs are widely employed in automotive applications such as seals, gaskets, and interior components, contributing to the overall growth of the TPEE market in the region.

Thermoplastic Polyester Elastomer Market Trends, by Region, 2023 - 2030

The continuously growing automotive manufacturing companies serve to fill the product gaps in the local market. China, Indonesia, India, and Bangladesh are expected to be the main factors driving the rise of the regional market. In addition, a robust electrical and electronics manufacturing base in China and South Korea is likely to influence the demand for thermoplastic polyester elastomer, thus driving market growth.

Europe is expected to grow at a significant CAGR in the coming years. The rise in the industrial sector in the region owing to the widening of the scope of machine parts and accessories is likely to boost TPEE consumption in the region.TPEEs possess superior strength, durability, and resistance to wear and tear, making them suitable for a wide range of industrial components and parts. The expansion of numerous industrial sectors, such as manufacturing, construction, and energy, has raised demand for materials such as TPEEs, particularly in emerging economies.
