The latest report by IMARC, titled “Rubber Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2023-2028”, finds that the global rubber market size reached US$ 42.97 Billion in 2022. Rubber refers to a highly elastic, tough, and water-resistant material that is derived from the sap of some trees, particularly the Hevea brasiliensis, or rubber tree. The sap is collected by making incisions in the tree bark, and then it is coagulated and processed to form the rubber material. The properties of rubber make it useful in a variety of applications, including the production of tires, footwear, adhesives, and industrial components. The elasticity of rubber allows it to stretch and return to its original shape, while its toughness and water resistance make it durable and long-lasting. In recent years, rubber has gained traction as it can be synthesized in the laboratory, opening up the possibility of creating new materials with specific properties for various applications.
Global Rubber Market Trends:
One of the primary factors driving the market is the augmenting product demand from various industries, such as the automotive industry, which consumes a significant amount of rubber to produce tires, belts, and hoses. Additionally, other industries such as construction, footwear, and consumer goods also contribute to demand, thus creating a positive market outlook. Other than this, changes in consumer spending and industrial output is boosting the product sales. Besides this, the growing demand for electric vehicles is expected to have a significant impact on the rubber market. Electric vehicles require specialized tires and other rubber components that are more durable and have different properties compared to those used in traditional gasoline-powered vehicles. In line with this, the development of infrastructure projects, such as roads, bridges, and buildings, is positively influencing the market growth. These projects require a significant amount of rubber materials for use in sealing, insulation, and vibration control. Furthermore, as environmental concerns are becoming more pressing, there has been a growing demand for sustainable and eco-friendly materials. This is driving the demand for natural rubber and synthetic rubber produced from renewable sources such as bio-based feedstocks. Moreover, technological advancements and innovations in the rubber production and its applications are strengthening the market growth. For instance, the development of new rubber formulations and production methods can lead to improved performance and durability of rubber products, which increases its demand. Looking forward, IMARC Group expects the market value to reach US$ 57.45 Billion by 2028, expanding at a CAGR of 4.87% during the forecast period (2023-2028).
