Synthetic Rubber Market Share, Business Strategies And, Regional Outlook – LANXESS AG, JSR Corporation, Denka Company Ltd., Bridgestone Corporation Are Some of the Key Players

Asia-Pacific was the largest market for synthetic rubber, both in terms of volume and value, in 2020, owing to the increasing demand for synthetic rubber in the construction and tire industries.

The global synthetic rubber market revenue stood at $31.0 billion in 2020, and the market is expected to exhibit huge expansion in the coming years. The market is being propelled by the rising demand for automotive tires, mushrooming requirement for long-lasting rubber, ballooning production capacity of many rubber manufacturers, and surging investments being made by them. Additionally, the booming automotive industry and the implementation of initiatives by several governments for increasing disposable income of citizens, facilitating industrialization, and fueling economic progress are also driving the market.

The soaring manufacturing and sales of automobiles, especially in developing nations, such as India and China, is fueling the expansion of the automotive industry. For instance, as per the India Brand Equity Foundation (IBEF), the automotive industry in India is predicted to reach a revenue of INR 16.16-18.18 trillion (US$ 251.4-282.8 billion) by 2026. As rubber and rubber products are extensively used in the automobile industry in various applications, such as body sealing systems, vehicle anti-vibration systems, suspension systems, fluid transport systems, fused components, flat seals, O rings, and adhesives and sealants, the surge in the industry is positively impacting their demand.

In addition, many components in the engine compartment, such as engine seals and hoses in air conditioning systems, are produced from high-grade synthetic rubber. Owing to these factors, the expansion of the automotive industry is propelling the synthetic rubber market across the globe. Depending on product type, the market is divided into polybutadiene rubber (BR), butyl rubber (IIR), acrylonitrile-butadiene rubber (NBR), styrene-butadiene rubber (SBR), ethylene-propylene-diene rubber (EPDM), and styrene block copolymer (SBC).

Amongst these, the SBR category contributed the highest revenue to the market in the past, and it will demonstrate rapid expansion in the upcoming years as well, according to the market research firm, P&S Intelligence. This is credited to the abrasion resistance of SBR, which is desirable in the healthcare, footwear, and building and construction industries. When application is taken into consideration, the synthetic rubber market is classified into footwear, non-tire automotive, tire, adhesives and sealants, industrial components, and paints and coatings. Among these, the tire category dominated the market in 2020, and it is predicted to generate high revenue in the coming years as well.
