Synthetic Rubber Market 2
Synthetic Rubber Market 2

The global Synthetic Rubber market is expected to demonstrate the growth of ~4% during the forecast period (2021-2027). Synthetic rubbers has myriad of application, and its usage has been growing over the year with increasing production of end-use industry. It is preferred by global industry over natural rubber due to its low cost, easy availability, and range of physical and chemical properties. Thus, helping companies in reducing raw materials procurement cost without compromising with the manufactured goods. Among many applications, tire industry is one of the largest consumers of synthetic rubber as it helps in determine the performance of each component in the tire as well as the overall tire performance.

However, in 2020, demand of synthetic rubber from tire industry witnessed a severe decline owing to the emergency like situation created by the COVID-19 which halted the global production of tire industry. For instance, in 2019, the global original equipment manufacturer passenger car and light truck tire market was stood around 422 million units which fell to 351 million unit in 2020. The most severe impact had witnessed in South American region where demand dropped by 31% in 2020.

Insights Presented in the Report

“Amongst type, SBR held prominent share in the market in 2020.”

Based on type, the market is categorized into SBR, BR, SBC, EPDM, IIR, NBR, and others. Among these, SBR held the prominent share in the global synthetic rubber market. SBR is widely use in tire industry as it is better suited to meet the increasingly stringent specifications of high-performance tires. Further, in automotive industry SBR founds application in belt, hoses, gasket. Therefore, growth in tire industry and replacement of automotive components are some of the key factors for its considerable position in the market.

“Amongst application, tire held prominent share in the market in 2020.”

Based on application, the market is divided into tire, automotive, footwear, industrial goods, consumer goods, textile, and others. Among these, tire held the significant share in the market. This can be attributed to tire large and growing demand of tire from automobile industry. Tire is used as an original equipment with a new vehicle as well as it large demand during old tire replacement. Further, increasing demand of high-performance tire resulting in the growing demand of synthetic rubber in tire industry.

“Large automobile and tire product aid the APAC region to obtain the prominent position in the market”

For a better understanding of the market adoption of Synthetic Rubber, the market is analyzed based on its worldwide presence in the countries such as North America (United States, Canada, Rest of North America), Europe (Germany, UK, France, Spain, and Rest of Europe), Asia-Pacific (China, Japan, India, Australia, and Rest of APAC), and Rest of World.  Asia-Pacific held the prominent position in the global synthetic rubber market owing to its large tire manufacturing industry and largest automobile production base across the globe. For instance, tire manufacturers like Bridgestone, Yokohama, Kumho, Hankook, Triangle, Apollo, and MRF are among the largest producer of tire, globally.
