Synthetic Rubber Market

Market Insights on Synthetic Rubber covering sales outlook, demand forecast & up-to-date key trends

Synthetic Rubber Market : Global Industry Analysis 2015-2019 and Opportunity Assessment 2020-2030

Synthetic Rubber Market: Overview

Synthetic rubber is a type of artificial polymer and made form petroleum products as by-products. Synthetic rubber is an alternative to natural rubbers owing to its advantages and easy production process. While natural rubber required tropical climate as well as many precautions for cropping.  Therefore, many countries such as China, Russia, U.S., and among others are preferring synthetic rubber to various rubber products.

According to synthetic rubber experts: synthetic rubber can be stiff like a bowling ball or as elastic as a rubber band or even soft like a sponge. Therefore, the application purview of synthetic rubber is broader.

Tire manufacturing companies have made huge strides in the use of synthetic rubber market as a vital ingredient in the manufacturing of tires and its accessories. Buna rubbers are commonly used for tire manufacturing. While, Butyl rubber, since it is gas- impenetrable, is usually used for inner tubes. To make rubber products, nearly 70% of industries are preferring to use synthetic rubber as raw material due to its low-cost and other advantages over natural rubber.

Synthetic rubber is manufactured by four key types of producers: chemical companies, government entities, petroleum and natural gas companies, and tire companies. Upstream producers and downstream producers are also playing a crucial role in the market as these producers provide the required raw materials for synthetic rubber i.e. monomer, crude petroleum, and natural gas extraction.

Synthetic Rubber Market: Dynamics

The rising application of synthetic rubber coupled with growing penetration of synthetic rubber in the automotive industry is projected to provide a fillip to the demand of synthetic rubber market over the coming decades. Furthermore, rapid industrialization, growth in personal income & manufacturing output, among others, are also expected to impact the demand of synthetic rubber market in the future.

Moreover, growing production and demand for consumer goods and industrial goods are also estimated to shape up the global demand of the synthetic rubber market over the coming years.

Fluctuations in the price of crude oil which provides the raw material to make synthetic rubber, may hamper the future demand of synthetic rubber market over the stipulated time period. Furthermore, trade tensions between large economies such as China and the U.S. could also create headwinds for the global synthetic rubber market in the coming decades.   

Leading automotive tire manufacturers are making hefty investments in research and development to make eclectic rubber which will be more resilient and stiff as compared to synthetic rubbers.
