Industrial rubber market expected to reach $38.31 billion by 2026

  8/16/2019 - New York, NY - The industrial rubber market is expected to reach $38.31 billion by 2026, according to a report by Reports and Data. The industrial rubber market is driven principally by the automotive industry. Industrial rubber is primarily used for making tires. Construction activities led by developing economies across the world will generate demand. The volatility of oil prices, concerned government regulations and environmental concerns, lack of suppliers and the growing threat of alternatives are factors hindering the growth of the industry. The North America region accounted for the second largest share of 30.3 percent of the market in 2018. The growing demand for fuel-efficient automotive parts due to environmental concerns and strict regulations is anticipated to drive growth in this region. In the United States currently, 111 companies are working within the tire and rubber industry. When combined, they are accountable for more than 42,000 direct employment possibilities. Further key findings from the report suggest that the industrial rubber market is estimated to reach $38.31 billion by 2026, at a CAGR of 4.3 percent during the forecast period. The synthetic rubber type accounted for a larger share of 63.8 percent in 2018. The mechanical rubber goodd product type is anticipated to grow at the highest rate of 4.4 percent during the forecast period. The building and construction end user segment is anticipated to grow at the highest rate of 4.6 percent during the forecast period. Increasing construction activities in developing economies are also an essential factor enhancing the current demand. Several governments in Asia Pacific are investing in both public and private enterprises to support infrastructure in countries like India and China. Numerous airports, highways, metros and other smart city projects are initiated in these economies. These projects are assumed to increase demand during the forecast period in the Asia Pacific region. Demand for fuel-efficiency, lightweight vehicles and environmentally-friendly automotive parts also have been influencing the automotive industry in adopting eco-friendly industrial rubber. The Asia Pacific region accounted for the largest share of 31.3 percent in 2018. The industry is anticipated to witness increasing demand from India, China and other countries of the region. It is a leading region in terms of consumption and production of rubber. An emerging trend in this region is to manufacture bicycle and motorcycle tires. Many stakeholders are showing interest in the production of car and truck tires, and this is projected to overhaul the manufacturing of the motorcycle and bicycle tire businesses in the region. In economies such as Sri Lanka, India and Bangladesh, there is a substantial demand for automobiles used for industrial purposes. Various players are developing strategies to mark their presence in the industry. For instance, Midwest Industrial Rubber acquired New England Belting Company (NEBCO) on May 8, 2018. This acquisition has increased Midwest’s growth strategy for development and immediate access to new and untapped areas. The Key players in the industry include Sinopec, Lanxess, The Goodyear Tire and Rubber Company, ExxonMobil, Kumho Petrochemical, TSRC Corporation, Nizhnekamskneftekhim, JSR Corporation, LG Chem, Versalis S.P.A., Zeon Corporation, PetroChina, Sibur, Group Dynasol and Kraton Corporation.
