Polyisoprene is a polymer of isoprene found in the latex of the Hevea Brasiliensis trees and is known as natural rubber. Industrially, it is mainly synthesized from isoprene monomer. It is used in manufacturing tires, latex products, footwear, non-automotive engineering products, belting and hoses etc. IMARC Group’s latest report “Polyisoprene Market – Industry Trends, Prices, Manufacturing Process, Applications, Raw Materials, Manufacturers, Regional Breakup and Mass Balance” provides an in-depth analysis of the global polyisoprene market. According to the report, the global demand of polyisoprene has grown at a CAGR of 3.3% during 2008-2015, driven by its capability to manufacture tires.
The report has analysed the global market for polyisoprene on the basis of end-uses. Polyisoprene has a number of functional qualities which find uses in various industries. Traditionally, natural polyisoprene has been used in tire manufacturing. These days, however, synthetic rubber is substituting natural rubber. Tire and related products segment represents the largest and fastest growing consumer of polyisoprene. Other applications of polyisoprene cover latex products, footwear, non-automotive engineering, belting and hoses.
The report has further analysed market share of key regions. Currently, Russia represents the largest market for synthetic polyisoprene accounting for more than a third of the total global consumption. In case of natural polyisoprene, Thailand represents the largest market. Assessing the global imports and exports of synthetic polyisoprene, the report has found that Poland is the largest global importer of synthetic polyisoprene while Malaysia is the largest importer of natural rubber. Apart from being the largest consumer, Russia also represents the largest exporter of synthetic polyisoprene while Thailand is the largest exporter of natural rubber.
The report has also analysed the competitive landscape of the global polyisoprene market. As the polyisoprene manufacturing process is complex and capital intensive, it is dominated by a handful of companies. Nizhnekamskneftekhim is currently the world’s largest synthetic polyisoprene manufacturer accounting for nearly a third of the total global polyisoprene production. Sri Trang group based in Thailand is the leader in natural rubber production and processing.
