Bio-based Elastomers Market Size Worth $1.3 Billion By 2030

November 2022 | Report Format: Electronic (PDF)

Bio-based Elastomers Market Growth & Trends 

The global bio-based elastomers market size is expected to reach USD 1.3 billion by 2030, according to a new report by Grand View Research, Inc., expanding at a CAGR of 13.9% from 2022 to 2030. The benefits provided by bio-based elastomers over crude oil-based elastomers regarding volatile organic compounds emissions are expected to contribute to the growth of the market. Major crude oil-based elastomer manufacturers are extensively engaging in developing bio-based elastomers.

End-use companies in the elastomer market are also including sustainable materials in their product manufacturing, which can significantly impact the market growth. For instance, in January 2022, The Goodyear Tire & Rubber Company launched a demonstration tire containing 70% sustainable-material content such as soybean oil and silica produced from rice husk ash to develop tires. Pela, a phone case manufacturing company in Canada, manufactures 100% compostable phone cases from Flaxstic, a bio-based material. This material includes a by-product of the flax oil seed harvest and a bio-based thermoplastic elastomer.

In April 2021, Audia Elastomers launched sustainable thermoplastic elastomers under the brand name AudiaFlex consisting of customizable grades that are produced from marine-based, bio-based, post-industrial, and post-consumer sources. On 17 November 2022, Asahi Kasei Corporation announced the beginning of the sale of Asadene BR and Tufdene S-SBR for the production of eco-friendly tires. These elastomers are manufactured by the mass-balance method with raw material derived from plastic waste and biomass.
