Neoprene Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2021-2026

The global neoprene market reached a volume of 423.4 kilotons in 2020. Looking forward, IMARC Group expects the market to exhibit moderate growth during 2021-2026. Keeping in mind the uncertainties of COVID-19, we are continuously tracking and evaluating the direct as well as the indirect influence of the pandemic on different end-use industries. These insights are included in the report as a major market contributor.

Neoprene is a synthetic rubber produced artificially by free radical polymerization of chloroprene. It was first developed in the 1930s, as an oil-resistant substitute for natural latex rubber with DuPont being the first to market the compound in 1931. Neoprene offers various advantages over natural rubber latex and other synthetic compounds. Neoprene provides a strong level of protection from oxidizing agents such as alcohols, oils, and acids and offers resistant to all acetonic solvents. It also provides high resistance to physical failures like cuts and is resistant to damage caused by abrasion, flexing and twisting. Neoprene also does not degrade in the presence of sun, ozone or weather and provides excellent adhesion to fabrics and metals. Moreover, Neoprene exhibits good chemical stability and maintains flexibility over a wide temperature range.  Compared to natural rubber, neoprene is more gas permeation resistant and can tolerate higher temperatures: up to 200 degrees Fahrenheit (F). Even at such elevated temperatures, neoprene maintains its integrity, making it better suited to long-term use in high temperature applications compared to natural rubber. Neoprene’s polymer structure also allows it to be modified to create a material compound with a diverse range of chemical and physical properties, based on the product needs.

The global demand of neoprene has been increasing continuously over the last few years catalyzed by its superior physical and chemical properties. The automotive sector represents one of the biggest end users of neoprene. In the automotive industry neoprene is used in the manufacturing of tires, oil seals, power transmission belts, breaking and steering system components, hose covers, etc. Apart from the automotive industry, the growth in the construction sector is also catalyzing the demand of neoprene where it is used to provide electrical insulation; seals for windows, doors, and facades; elevator astragals; deviator pads; Highway and bridge seals, etc.
