Elastomers are amorphous polymers that possess elasticity and viscosity properties. High temperature elastomers are those polymers which can be used in high temperature applications. These elastomers are mostly insoluble in common solvents and chemical inactiveness of them makes it chemical resistant and anti-corrosive. Advancements in elastomers which are functional at high temperatures has been emphasized in the last few years. Several researches are being down to enhance the current thermally stable elastomers without regard of its physical properties at elevated temperatures.
Rapidly growing automotive industry, rise in use of high temperature elastomers in automotive and other applications, increasing investments on developing new products, and growing use of these elastomers as additives in industries such as electronics, consumer goods and healthcare are the major factors supplementing the growth of the market. However, high manufacturing cost would pose challenge for the market growth. Furthermore, potential markets in emerging economies, and development of innovative products would create growth opportunities in the coming years.
