The report World Thermoplastic Elastomers to 2017 by Freedonia Group is now available at ReportsnReports.com. The Asia/Pacific region will continue to be the largest market for TPEs through 2017, rising at an above average pace to account for nearly half of global demand in 2017. China, the world’s largest consumer of TPEs in volume terms, will continue to see strong annual growth in demand. Regional gains will also benefit from robust expansion in India and Southeast Asia, although continued sluggishness in the sizable Japanese market will limit growth. TPE demand in North America and Western Europe will exhibit substantial improvement compared to the recession-plagued 2007-2012 period. Over the long term, however, these regions are expected to account for an increasingly smaller share of global TPE demand.
