Global Neoprene Market to Reach 552.8 Kilo Tons by 2032, Propelled by Booming Construction Industry

March 01, 2019 | Chemical & Materials

A new research report by IMARC Group, titled “Neoprene Market Report by Manufacturing Route (Butadiene Route, Acetylene Route), Grade (General-Purpose Grade Neoprene, Pre-Crosslinked Grade Neoprene, Sulfur-Modified Grade Neoprene, Slow Crystallizing Grade Neoprene), Application (Technical Rubber, Adhesives Industry, Latex Industry), End-User (Automotive, Manufacturing, Consumer Goods, Medical), and Region 2024-2032, estimates that the global neoprene market reached a volume of 435.0 Kilo Tons in 2023. First manufactured by DuPont in 1930, neoprene is a synthetic rubber that is produced by the polymerization of chloroprene. Highly resistant to water, oils, solvents and heat, neoprene is chemically stable and flexible over a wide range of temperatures. Unlike natural rubber, neoprene maintains its integrity even at extremely high temperatures, which helps in increasing the shelf life of neoprene-based products. In addition, it does not degrade when exposed to sunlight and provides excellent adhesion to fabrics and metals. As a result, neoprene is employed in a variety of products such as laptop sleeves, orthopedic braces, electrical insulation, hoses, belts, springs, flexible mounts, gaskets, adhesives and automotive fan belts.

Global Neoprene Market Trends:

Neoprene is extensively used as a building material owing to its ozone resistance, electrical resistance, and anti-weathering properties. On account of urbanization and increasing population, a rapid increase in construction activities has been witnessed which is boosting the sales of neoprene across the globe. Apart from this, neoprene rubber is widely utilized in the cables and wires industry in the production of jacketing for heavy-duty cables and lead press cured mining cables. Rising demand for wires and cables from power supply companies has catalyzed the sales of neoprene. Moreover, it is utilized in the automotive industry for the manufacturing of hose covers, oil seals, power transmission belts, tires and steering system components. Burgeoning sales of luxury cars as a result of inflating disposable incomes are creating a positive outlook for the market. On account of these factors, the global neoprene market is anticipated to reach a volume of 552.8 kilo Tons by 2032, exhibiting a CAGR of 2.6% during 2024-2032.
