Region : Global | Report ID: FBI102144 | Status : Ongoing



Synthetic rubber is an artificial elastomer produced from petroleum byproducts. Synthetic rubber has properties like abrasion resistance, heat resistance, electrical resistance, elasticity, flexibility, and toughness, which makes it suitable for the usage in making footwear, industrial goods, asphalt overlay, tires and adhesives. Monomers such as isoprene, chloroprene, isobutylene, and others can be copolymerized together in various proportions to obtain products with a range of mechanical, chemical, and physical properties. Due to their properties, some of the synthetic rubbers are preferred over natural rubbers in various applications.

The key market driver for the global synthetic rubber market is the emerging demand for hydrogenated nitrile-butadiene rubber (HNBR) is likely to boost the growth of the synthetic rubber market.

Key Market Driver -

The emerging demand for hydrogenated nitrile-butadiene rubber (HNBR)

Key Market Restraint -
