Thermoplastic Elastomer Price Trend for the H1 of 2023


The price trend of thermoplastic elastomer moved upwards in the first and second quarters of 2023 with some month-to-month variations. The initial price dip was, however, observed in the first month due to low demand from downstream industries, but in the subsequent months, the market gained its pace and acquired more orders from the domestic and international markets. With the surge in demand, the producers looked to restock their inventories, which led to the rise in the price trend of thermoplastic elastomer.


An inclining trajectory of prices was observed in the first two quarters of 2023, with some mixed trends in the second quarter. The prices in this region were supported by the rising cost of raw materials. The automotive sector also showcased signs of recovery and improved its demand along with several other downstream industries that eventually led to the surge in the prices of thermoplastic elastomer.

North America

In North America, the price trend of thermoplastic elastomers was stagnant in the first and second quarters of 2023. The trend took a slight dip in January but stabilized quickly in the subsequent months. The stagnancy in the prices of thermoplastic elastomers was majorly due to rising cost pressure on the market from the raw material sector and fixed consumption of buyers in the market.

Analyst Insight

According to Procurement Resource, the price trend of thermoplastic elastomer is estimated to showcase an inclining trajectory as the demand from end-user industries seems to be improving.

A class of materials known as thermoplastic elastomers (TPEs) combines the properties of ordinary thermoplastics with elastomers. TPEs, like thermoplastics, may be repeatedly melted and reformed, unlike typical elastomers. They have exceptional flexibility, robustness, and elasticity, much like rubber, but they don't need to be vulcanized.

TPEs are weatherable, have strong chemical resistance, and may be manufactured using conventional plastic molding procedures. These materials are used in consumer products, medical equipment, automobile components, and other industrial products where a compromise between rubber-like characteristics and ease of processing is necessary.
