Global Rubber Market

Global Rubber - Overview

Rubber is an elastic substance obtained from the exudations of certain tropical flora or derived from petroleum and natural gasoline. Rubber made from natural sources is called natural rubber while those made from petroleum are called synthetic fibers. Natural rubber possesses useful characteristics such as a large stretch ratio and high resilience and is also water-proof. On the other hand, synthetic fibers also have a wide range of chemical and physical properties such as thermal stability and resistance to oils and related compounds.

Global Rubber Market Forecast and Trends

Growth Drivers

Expanding Production of Natural Rubber

The rising demand for rubber is also fueling the production of natural rubber in the market. The negative impact of synthetic rubber on the environment is prompting the users to shift towards natural rubber, which is directly influencing the production of natural rubber. Countries such as Thailand, Indonesia, Malaysia, etc., that are major producers of natural rubber are significantly investing in expanding the production to meet the surging global demand, which is anticipated to drive the market growth in the forecast period.

Increasing Production of Tires And Automotive Products

With the increasing disposable income of consumers, the demand for automobiles is also increasing at a high rate. Due to this, the major tire manufacturers are significantly expanding their production capacities. Tire brands such as Bridgestone, Cooper Tires, Yokohama, Michelin, etc., are significantly investing in expansion by establishing new production plants in different geographical locations. With increasing tire and other automotive parts production, the demand for natural and synthetic rubber is projected to surge in the forecast period, propelling the overall market growth.

Restraints

Negative Impact of Synthetic Rubber on Environment

Synthetic rubber is very useful as well as low in cost compared to natural rubber. However, it also poses dangers to the environment, which acts as a major restraining factor for the global rubber market. SBR and butadiene, which are in the family of synthetic rubber and are used in manufacturing, are primary sources of pollution. These compounds are not biodegradable, which means when the wastewater is discharged into the water bodies, it affects the oxygen level in the water and increases the toxin levels, eventually harming marine life.

Impact of COVID-19 on Global Rubber Market

The unprecedented COVID-19 pandemic outbreak tremendously halted the growth of the global rubber market. This is mainly due to the disruptions in the manufacturing and supply chains of the end-user industries including tires, automotive, footwear, industrial goods, etc. Furthermore, several countries including China, India, Brazil, etc., imposed a complete nationwide lockdown due to which production and processing of rubber were also hindered during this period. However, the demand for latex rubber registered significant growth owing to the spike in demand for medical products such as surgical gloves and PPE kits.

Global Rubber Market - By Type

Based on type, the global rubber market is segmented into natural rubber and synthetic rubber. The synthetic rubber segment because of its wide range of applications in various industries. Synthetic rubber is prominently used in the production of footwear, tires, industrial goods such as conveyor belts, etc., due to its properties such as temperature resistance, aging resistance, and resistance to abrasion. However, the natural rubber segment also covers a substantial market share as it offers a high level of heat and wear resistance.

Global Rubber Market - By Application

Based on application, the global rubber market is segmented into the tire, non-tire automotive, footwear, industrial goods, and others. The tire segment accounts for the largest market share. The expanding tire production owing to the rising demand for automobiles worldwide acts as a major driving factor for the increasing demand for rubber. The leading tire manufacturers are significantly investing in expanding their production and establishing their manufacturing plants in new geographical locations to boost their market presence, which is anticipated to fuel the growth of the global rubber market in the forecast period.

Global Rubber Market - Regional Insights

Geographically, the global rubber market is segmented into North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, Latin America, Middle East & Africa. The Asia-Pacific region dominates the global rubber market owing to the leading products in countries including Thailand, China, India, etc. The flourishing manufacturing industry and increasing construction activities in these emerging economies such as China, Japan, South Korea, etc., are also fueling the growth of the market. However, North America and Europe also cover a substantial portion of the global rubber market.
