The market segmented on the basis of end use industry as Automotive, Oil & Gas, Food & Pharmaceutical, Chemical, Medical and Other Industrial applications.
Drivers & Restraints
Rubber is a staple commodity in industrial supply chains but the price is extremely volatile and is currently at record lows. Indonesia, Thailand, and Malaysia account for almost 70% of natural rubber and they have cut their exports as a result of plummeting prices. Thus, there is a shift towards synthetic rubbers such as hydrogenated nitrile butadiene rubber, especially in emerging economies. As the world’s population is growing rapidly, urbanization is the need of the hour. A large middle class demands real estate and self-mobility as both are usually viewed as a status symbol. Synthetic rubbers find widespread application in high-performance products directly contributing to the growth of the hydrogenated nitrile butadiene rubber market.
