Elastomers are artificial or synthetic rubbers based on polymers. Majority of the Elastomers are based of thermosetting polymers. However, thermoplastic based Elastomers are also present commercially which are suitable for a small range of application. They are produced by the reaction of diisocyanate or polyisocyanate with polyol. Moreover, these elastomers are generally used to manufacture various products such as high resilience foam seating and insulation panels, microcellular gaskets and foam seals, elastomeric wheels of roller coaster, elevator, shopping carts, automotive suspension bushings, surface coatings, sealants and many more.

Elastomers can be cross linked by isocyanate, peroxides. Recently, new types of the same are available with sulphur cure system. The different systems substantially influence the process of workmanship while the performances are nearly lined up between them. Elastomers find their application in numerous fields which include automotive, construction, packaging, furniture, footwear and many more. However, in 2016 footwear segment held the largest share in terms of volume that is growing at a CAGR of 5.52% and projected to reach 4836.4 (thousand tons) by 2022.
