Global Rubber Market: By Type: Natural Rubber, Synthetic Rubber; By Application: Auto-Tyre Sector, Non-Tyre Automotive, Footwear, Electrical and Electronics, Others; Regional Analysis; Historical Market and Forecast (2017-2027); Market Dynamics: SWOT Analysis; Competitive Landscape; Industry Events and Developments

Global Rubber Market Outlook

The global rubber market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 5.0% during the period 2022-2027. The market is expected to be driven by important uses of rubber in different industries, including aerospace, medical, defence, printing, automotives, agriculture, etc. North America, Europe and Asia are likely to be key markets.

 

Global Market Likely to be Driven by Uses in the Industry

Rubber is used in several everyday products, including rubber stamps, waterproof shoes, surfing wetsuits, swimming caps, dishwasher hoses, among many others. Rubber not only comes from natural sources, but also is manufactured artificially in chemical plants. Thailand, Indonesia, Vietnam, India, China, Malaysia, Philippines, and Guatemala are major producers of natural rubber.

Commercially significant synthetic rubbers include styrene butadiene (SBR), polyacrylics, and polyvinyl acetate (PVA); other types include polyvinyl chloride (PVC), polychloroprene (better known as neoprene), and various types of polyurethane.

Natural rubber (also known as India or gum rubber) is extracted from the milky liquid (latex) found in the Hevea brasiliensis tree. The material’s key features include high tear and tensile strength, resilience, and resistance to abrasion, friction, extreme temperatures, and water swell. Uses include flooring and roofing, gloves, adhesives, insulation, and tyres.

 

Different Types of Rubber Display Distinct Properties and are Used for Diverse Purposes

Rubber comes in different types; each type displays distinct features, making it suitable for specific purposes. These properties and uses of rubber are expected to drive the global rubber market. Neoprene rubber (chloroprene) is one of the oldest types of synthetic rubber. As compared with natural rubber and other synthetic rubbers, it displays very low susceptibility to burning, corrosion, and degradation, making it an ideal base material for adhesives and corrosion-resistant coatings. It can maintain good mechanical properties over a wide temperature range, making it suitable for use in belts, high-pressure gaskets, and door and window seals.

Silicone rubber (polysiloxane) is recognized for its biocompatibility, malleability, and resistance to extreme temperatures, ozone, fire, and ultraviolet (UV) radiation. It is available in solid and liquid forms and in several colours. As it is chemically inert by nature, it is suitable for use where biocompatibility is warranted (such as implants, gloves, respiratory masks, and other medical products) and chemical resistance needed (for example baby care products, food containers, and cosmetic applicators).

Nitrile rubber [also called Buna-N rubber or nitrile butadiene rubber (NBR)] exhibits resistance to compression set, heat, oil and gas, and wear, making it fit for use in engine hoses, O-rings, automotive gaskets and seals, and medical products (like surgical gloves).

Ethylene propylene diene monomer (EPDM) rubber is a synthetic rubber that displays good durability, and resistance to damage and degradation from extreme temperatures and weather conditions. EPDM rubber is appropriate for use in outdoor parts and products, such as hoses, roofing sealants, seals, and in automobile systems.

Styrene-butadiene rubber (SBR), a copolymer of styrene and butadiene, exhibits superior hardness and durability; it displays superior alcohol, abrasion, compression set, and water swell resistance than several other more expensive synthetic rubbers. SBR is used in seals integrated into hydraulic brake systems, and in cutting boards, gaskets, and shoe soles.

Butyl rubber (isobutylene isoprene) provides a high degree of gas impermeability. It is also very flexible, and thus used in making airtight components, such as inner tubes, sport balls, and sealants. As a liquid compound, it is generally employed as an additive in diesel and petroleum fuels and chewing gums.

Fluorosilicone rubber (FVMQ) is highly resistant to extreme temperatures (-100–350 degrees Fahrenheit), transmission fluids, petroleum oils and fuels, synthetic lubricants, fire, and ozone. It is thus used in aircraft fuel systems and other highly specialized industrial applications.

 

Industrial Applications Expected to Drive Market Growth

The global rubber market is expected to be driven by industrial applications of rubber. Natural rubber is employed in applications demanding high degrees of wear and heat resistance. Owing to its strength and compressibility, natural rubber is employed in engineering applications, like anti-vibration mounts, drive couplings, springs, bearings, rubber bands, and adhesives. A significant percentage of natural rubber is employed in high-performance tyres for race cars, buses, and aircraft. It is also used in hoses, automotive parts, foam mattresses, and battery boxes.

Synthetic rubber is employed in a variety of industrial applications. Most printers, including large-scale commercial printers, employ rubber covered rollers. Rubber moulded products, some finished by utilizing die cut services, are used in industrial and household applications. The largest consumers of rubber are tyres and tubes, followed by general rubber goods. Other significant uses of rubber include hoses, belts, matting, flooring, medical gloves and equipment, and several others.

Industries that consume rubber include aerospace, agriculture, automotive, business machine, communication, computer, construction, consumer, defence, electronics, energy, food processing, garment, gas, instrumentation, labelling, laser, medical equipment, military, music, oil, packaging, paper processing, printing feed and drive rollers, recording, semiconductor, sporting goods, ticketing equipment, transportation, etc.
