United States Polymeric Flexible Hose and Tubing Market, 2020

Dublin, July 25, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Research and Markets has announced the addition of the "Polymeric Flexible Hose and Tubing" report to their offering.

This study thoroughly covers many important economic, technological, political, regulatory and environmental considerations in U.S. markets for materials used in the manufacture of polymeric flexible hose and tubing as well as the resulting hose and tubing products.

These products are made from elastomeric and non-elastomeric polymers that can be natural or synthetic. The focus is on thermosetting elastomers, natural and synthetic rubbers and thermoplastic hose and tubing materials, which include plastic resins and TPEs.

The only natural material covered in this study is NR. Biopolymers and bioplastics are nascent and growing technologies and products. Biomass sources are receiving attention as replacements for oil and natural gas and as feedstocks for synthetic polymers, including synthetic rubber and plastic resins. However, these alternative feedstocks are not in the scope of this study, and the focus is on polymers produced from crude oil and natural gas.

This report includes old and new key technologies, the related markets and the key companies that comprise the U.S. hose and tubing industry. The study is primarily focused on activities and markets in the United States but also touches on noteworthy international activities, specifically those that could potentially have impacts on U.S. business and markets and the activities of foreign-based companies in U.S. markets.

Demand data are estimated for base year 2015 and forecast for five years to 2020. Markets are analyzed, estimated and projected by volume in terms of pounds of materials used, and five-year compound annuals growth rates (CAGRs) are provided.
