Thermoplastic vulcanizates (TPVs) refer to polymer blends consisting of finely dispersed micron-sized rubber particles in a thermoplastic matrix. They are produced by cross-linking melted rubber with thermoplastic material in controlled temperatures. TPVs exhibit properties of vulcanized rubber elastomers and thermoplastic materials. In comparison to other polymers, they are lightweight, durable, resistant to heat, chemicals and fluids and have minimal processing costs. As a result, TPVs are widely used in the manufacturing of industrial and automobile components, consumer goods and electrical, medical, sports and personal care products.
Global Thermoplastic Vulcanizates (TPV) Industry Trends:
The growing automotive industry across the globe represents one of the key factors creating a positive outlook for the market. TPVs are widely used to produce lightweight automotive parts, such as car doors, bumpers, battery frames, weather seals and under-the-hood components. Furthermore, the increasing demand for durable consumer products is also driving the market growth. In line with this, the growing demand for TPVs as an alternative for polyvinyl chloride (PVC) in the healthcare industry is also contributing to the growth of the market. They offer enhanced optical clarity and toughness and are used in the manufacturing of catheters, blood bags and disposable gloves. Additionally, various product innovations, such as the launch of bio-based TPVs, are acting as other growth-inducing factors. These novel and bio-degradable variants are derived from renewable resources, such as starch-, cellulose and sot-based polymers, polylactides (PLAs) and polyhydroxyalkanoates (PHAs). Other factors, including rapid industrialization, along with the implementation of favorable government policies promoting the use of TPVs for sustainable development, are anticipated to drive the market further.
