The industrial segment is estimated to be the largest end-use industry of the cast elastomers market in 2018

The industrial segment is estimated to be the largest segment of the cast elastomers market, by end-use industry in 2018. The large market share of this segment is due to the extensive use of cast elastomers in applications, such as industrial wheels, rollers, and machinery. Hot cast elastomers are used in these applications as these offer tough abrasion resistance and high load-bearing capacity.

Hot cast elastomers are estimated to be the largest type in the cast elastomers market in 2018

Hot cast elastomers are estimated to lead the type segment in 2018. The large share of hot cast elastomers is due to their wide usage in automotive & transportation and industrial applications owing to properties, such as high abrasion resistance, high tensile strength, high load-bearing capacity, superior impact strength, and cost-effectiveness.R

Key companies manufacturing cast elastomers were majorly involved in mergers & acquisitions, joint ventures, and expansions to strengthen their positions in the market. These were the most preferred strategies adopted by market players from 2014 to 2018. Increase in the number of expansions indicates that manufacturers are expanding their distribution networks and geographical reach, and increasing production capacities to capture market shares. Mergers & acquisitions was another major strategy adopted by manufacturers to consolidate their market positions and establish a strong foothold in the cast elastomers market, especially in emerging countries.

Major manufacturers, such as Covestro (Germany), Huntsman (US), Lanxess (Germany), DowDuPont (US), BASF (Germany), Tosoh Corporation (Japan), Mitsui Chemicals (Japan), Coim Group (Italy), and Era Polymers (Australia), among others, are profiled in this report. These companies have adopted both, organic and inorganic strategies to reach leading positions in the global cast elastomers market.
