Market Study: Synthetic Rubber

Market Study: Synthetic Rubber

Elastically deformable plastics are necessary for many technical applications but also for various everyday objects. Per year, more than 12.7 million tonnes of these types of polymers are consumed worldwide. Ceresana analyzed the global market for synthetic rubbers already for the third time. These include styrene-butadiene rubber, butadiene rubber, ethylene-propylene-diene rubber, acrylonitrile-butadiene rubber, chlorobutadiene, and polyisoprene. The current study deals with data for the years starting in 2009 and forecasts data until 2025.

Vehicle Tires are Main Application

The most important sales market for synthetic rubber in 2017 was the segment tires: 58% of total global demand were accounted for by applications in original equipment and replacement tires. Rubbers are also used for numerous other products in the automotive industry: for example for hoses, cables, seals as well as window and door profiles. For the automotive segment, the analysts of Ceresana expect an increase of global rubber demand by 3.0% per year until 2025.

Engineering Rubber Products

The second largest application area for rubbers are elastically deformable engineering products with a stable shape such as conveyor belts, roll covers, hoses, profiles, seals, cables, molded parts, and roofing films. Ranging from the chemical industry, engineering, and construction to electrics and electronics, increasing number of rubber products are needed. For the period until 2025, we expect global demand for rubber in the segments industry and construction to increase by 2.4% p.a.

Market Leader Styrene-Butadiene Rubber

By far, the most important rubber type is styrene-butadiene rubber (SBR): about 5.1 million tonnes were processed in 2017. SBR is produced by emulsion polymerization (E-SBR) or solution polymerization (S-SBR). While E-SBR accounts for approx. 72% of total SBR demand, the market for S-SBR develops at significantly more dynamical growth rates of 3.8% p.a. The tire industry is the dominating sales market for these two products as well as for butadiene rubber (BR), butyl rubber (IIR), and polyisoprene (IR). A different picture is presented in the case of ethylene-propylene-diene rubber (EPDM), chlorobutadiene rubber (CR), and acrylonitrile-butadiene rubber (NBR): These rubber types are mainly used in industrial and construction products as well as for modification of other materials.

The Study in Brief:

Chapter 1 provides a description and analysis of the global rubber market, including forecasts up to 2025: The development of revenues, demand, and production is analyzed for each region of the world.
Chapter 2 offers a detailed analysis of 25 countries: Demand, export, import, production, capacities, and revenues in regard to rubber. In addition, these countries are also analyzed regarding application areas. Market data on demand are split by types of rubber for each country.
Chapter 3 analyzes the different types of application areas of rubber in detail: Data and influential factors on application in tires, automobiles, industry and construction products, modification of materials as well as other applications.
Chapter 4 analyzes demand for rubbers split by the types styrene-butadiene rubber (E-SBR), styrene-butadiene rubber (S-SBR), polybutadiene rubber (BR), ethylene-propylene-diene rubber (EPDM), butyl rubber (IIR), acrylonitrile-butadiene rubber (NBR), polychloroprene rubber (CR), and polyisoprene rubber (IR).
Chapter 5 offers a useful directory of the 67 most important rubber producers, clearly arranged according to contact details, revenues, profit, product range, production sites, profile summary, and information on capacities.

Enveloping Walls: Ceresana Analyzes the European Market for Insulation Materials
Extremely thin and highly insulating, fireproof and light as a feather - are aerogels the insulating materials of the future? They are already available not only for space suits, electric vehicles and batteries, but also for house walls. The nanoporous high-tech materials are usually made from silicon dioxide, but they can also be obtained from biopolymers such as cellulose or lignin. However, the best insulating materials to date are often
Colorful world market: current Ceresana study on pigments
Around the world, green is considered the color of new beginnings, of growth, of life. However, finding truly "green" pigments is a challenge: cadmium, cobalt, copper and other heavy metals can be dangerous, while natural earth colors are less durable and more difficult to process. Nevertheless, the outlook for manufacturers and distributors of these small, coloring particles is predominantly positive: global demand for pigments will increase to around 14.5 million
Biobased insulation materials: Ceresana gives an optimistic outlook for the Euro …
Granulated cork, mats made from hemp, fleeces made from sheep's wool or even blown-in cellulose flakes: Biobased insulation materials are increasingly competing with mineral wool and plastic foam. Ceresana has been analyzing the market for insulation materials used for thermal insulation in the construction industry for 10 years. Now, for the first time, the market research institute is publishing a study specifically on the European market for insulation materials made
Sustainable adhesion: Ceresana report on biobased adhesives
Adhesives make many environmentally friendly products possible: lightweight car bodies and batteries for electromobility, insulation glazing for facades and insulating panels as well as corrugated cardboard packaging or simple paper bags. Increasingly, however, not only the end products but also the adhesives themselves are to be "organic" - in fact, more than 13 million tonnes are already produced around the world each year, and this figure is rising.
