PVC Elastomer Market Trends

  • Increased use in medical applications is driving market growth

PVC elastomers' flexibility, clarity, and ease of processing make them a popular choice in the production of medical hoses and tubes. Catheters, intravenous (IV) lines, and other medical tube applications are frequent uses for them. It is possible to construct PVC elastomers to be biocompatible, which means that they can come into direct touch with body tissues and fluids. For materials used in medical equipment, this is an essential need. PVC elastomers ensure the safety and sterility of medical equipment in hospital environments by withstanding a variety of sterilization techniques, such as ethylene oxide sterilization and gamma radiation. China spent USD 1.10 trillion on healthcare in 2021, making up 6.7% of the nation's GDP. Furthermore, the level of per capita health expenditure in 2021 was approximately USD 780, up from USD 733 in the year prior. A rising number of hospitals and a rising need for medical assistance led to significant expansion in China's medical device market.

PVC elastomers find extensive usage in wiring and cabling applications as jacketing and insulation materials. They are useful in guaranteeing the functionality and safety of electrical systems because of their electrical insulating qualities. PVC elastomers are ideal for situations where wires and cables may need to bend or flex, such as in appliances and electrical gadgets, because of their exceptional flexibility and endurance. Flame retardant criteria can be met by PVC elastomers, which is an essential prerequisite in electrical and electronic applications where fire safety is paramount. PVC elastomers are used as gaskets and seals in electronic enclosures to shield the components from external elements like dust and moisture that could cause harm.

PVC elastomers enable the production of flexible and elastic structures, adding variety to 3D printing applications. This increases the number of applications that 3D printing technology can be used for. PVC elastomers can be used to make prototype and custom parts with desired durability and flexibility. This is helpful in fields where customization and quick prototyping are crucial. Using 3D printing, elaborate and sophisticated designs can be produced. Because of their flexibility and moldability, PVC elastomers can be 3D printed into structures with distinctive geometries that satisfy particular design specifications. Thus driving the PVC Elastomer market revenue.

PVC Elastomer Market Segment Insights

PVC Elastomer Type Insights

The PVC Elastomer Market segmentation, based on type, includes thermoset elastomers and thermoplastic elastomers. The thermoplastic elastomer segment dominated the market. The automotive industry uses thermoplastic elastomers (TPEs), which include PVC elastomers, extensively for weather seals, gaskets, interior components, and other parts that need to be flexible and durable. Because of their flexibility and ease of processing, thermoplastic elastomers (TPEs), notably PVC elastomers, are used in the production of consumer goods like toys, footwear, and household items.

The thermoset elastomer segment is expected to be the fastest-growing segment of the PVC elastomer market during the forecast period. Polyurethane is a thermoset elastomer that is highly adaptable and can be made to display a broad range of qualities, from rigid to flexible. This makes it appropriate for a variety of applications, such as elastomers, foams, and coatings.
