Industrial Rubber Market Outlook - 2026

The global industrial rubber market size was valued at $29.8 billion in 2018 and is projected to reach $44.6 billion by 2026, growing at a CAGR of 5.2% from 2019 to 2026. Industrial rubber market is a natural polymer of Isoprene founded in the latex sap of various plants. Rubber is basically a hydrocarbon polymer, which is found naturally in sap of several plants and can also be made synthetically. Rubber, which is produced artificially, is called synthetic rubber, whereas the one derived from sap of plants is called natural rubber.

Industrial rubbers market are used in rubber molded products in industrial and household applications. One of the largest consumers of rubber are tires and tubes. Other applications of rubber are matting, flooring, hoses, belts, and others. In addition, rubber is utilized as adhesive in several products and industrial applications. 

Industrial Rubber Market

The automotive industry has observed a robust growth in the last decade, mostly in countries such as China, the U.S., Japan, India, Germany, and the UK. Electric vehicle sales are expected to increase. In addition, decrease in prices of electric vehicle parts such as battery, transmission, and alternators propel the sale of electric vehicles. The demand for industrial rubber market is expected to increase owing to the growth in the automotive sector. Rubber is used increasingly for making tires as well as component of automobile. Hence, with the growing vehicle sales, the demand for industrial rubber is expected to increase which further boosts the growth of the global industrial rubber market.

The global industrial rubber market is segmented into type, end-use industry and region. On the basis of type, the market is segmented into natural and synthetic rubber. The natural rubber industry is developing due to well-targeted research and development. These research and development activities are conducted by fields like agronomic science, physics, chemistry, and automotive sector to support and expand uses of natural rubber. Natural rubber latex is utilized in catheters, adhesives, balloons, elastic thread, as well as in adhesives.

Synthetic Rubber is projected as the fastest growing segment.

It is also used in the automotive industry for tires and other components of vehicles, such as bikes, cars, and trucks. The growing use of natural rubber by automotive, chemical, medical, and other industries drive the growth of the market.  As compared to natural rubber, synthetic rubber offers more abrasion resistance. Due to this advantage, synthetic rubber is increasingly used in rubber gaskets and seals. Synthetic rubber is best suited for extreme temperatures as it offers good heat resistance and heat-aging qualities. However, synthetic rubber is not recommended in applications that require ozone, greases, strong acids, oils, fats, and hydrocarbons.

The natural rubber industry is also developing due to well-targeted R&D. These activities are conducted by fields like agronomic science, physics, chemistry, and automotive sector to support and expand uses of natural rubber. Natural rubber latex is utilized in catheters, adhesives, balloons, elastic thread, as well as in adhesives. It is also used in tires and other components of bikes, cars, and trucks in the automotive industry. The rise in use of natural rubber by automotive, chemical, medical and other industries drive the growth of the market.

Analyst Review

The global industrial rubber market is expected to grow at a substantial rate during the forecast period. The demand for eco-friendly rubber is offering growth opportunities to the market. Green floors are recent trend observed in the industrial rubber market. These floors are made from natural rubber sap, which can be easily harvested without causing any significant harm or damage to the trees. Rubber vehicle tires are also recycled for making ecofriendly rubber flooring of all types. Other form of environmentally friendly rubber is recycled rubber, which is discarded as a waste. This recycled rubber is used to make products such as tires, tennis shoes, rubber beach balls, and hot water bottles. The Germany and the U.S. are the two topmost investment pockets for the global industrial rubber attributed to the increase in use of industrial rubber in the automotive and construction sector.

However, the materials used to manufacture rubber are elastomers, reinforcing fillers, plasticizers, chemicals, metal reinforcements, and textile reinforcements are expensive. The pricing of these raw materials plays a vital role in deciding the overall price of the rubber. Prices of these metals fluctuate to a great extent, as these are traded on a community exchange basis. Inflation and an increase in the demand for these raw materials fuel their prices in the recent past. Players that operate in the rubber market require a large amount of raw materials to overcome the demand from the end-use industry. Uncertainty in the pricing of these raw materials proves to be a major restraint for the growth of the market.
