Key Trends and Analysis of the Global Polyolefin Elastomer Market:
Increasing demand for polyolefin elastomer in automotive, packaging, medical, electorncis industries is expected to drive the growth of the global polyolefin elastomer market over the forecast period. For instance, being lightweight, polyolefin elastomer (POE) is widely accepted in automotive interior and exterior applications. According to the U.S. Department of Energy, using lightweight materials such as plastic in one-quarter of the U.S. vehicle fleet will result in fuel savings of up to 5 billion gallons by 2030. Moreover, a 10% reduction in the weight of the vehicle can account for a 6-8% fuel economy improvement. The U.S. federal government’s Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) developed the National Program for Greenhouse Gas Emissions and Fuel Economy Standards. The program aims to reduce gasoline use in the country by 2 million barrels per day by 2025, by achieving superior fuel efficiency in automobiles. Polyolefin elastomer (POE) is a copolymer of ethylene and α- olefins, which has the lowest density among polyolefin (PO) series products. This product exhibits characteristics such as impact resistance, high elasticity, and low heat sealing temperature. Moreover, the tensile strength, lightweight, clarity, and flexibility offered by the product enables it to replace thermoplastics such as ethylene vinyl acetate (EVA), polyvinyl chloride (PVC), styrene-block copolymers (SBC), ethylene methyl acrylate (EMA), and ethylene propylene rubber (EPR).

Global Polyolefin Elastomer Market - Impact of Coronavirus (Covid-19) Pandemic
The outbreak of COVID-19 had negatively impacted the global polyolefin elastomer market. During the pandemic, all the industries including food and beverages, automobiles, consumer goods, and packaging closed down suddenly throughout the globe. Thus, there was a decrease in demand for polyolefin elastomers across the globe. In addition, due to the closure of restaurants, there was a decline in demand for packaging materials such as polyolefin elastomers. Moreover, the production of automobiles has been stopped due to social distancing which further hampered the global polyolefin elastomers across the automotive industry. However, during COVID-19, the growing applications of polyolefin elastomers across the medical industry is boosting the product demand throughout the globe.
