Rubber is a natural polymer made synthetically from the sap of the hevea brasiliensis tree. It is composed of polyisoprene and contains other materials, such as proteins, resins, and inorganic materials. It offers elasticity, durability, low density, high tensile strength, and resistance to water and chemical. It is also capable of stretching and returning to its original shape without permanent deformation. It is used in the production of conveyor belts to transport products in a straight line or through changes in elevation. It is also utilized in the manufacturing of footwear like soles and boots to provide cushioning and support for the feet. At present, the growing participation of individuals in recreational activities and fitness like basketball, soccer, and tennis is catalyzing the demand for rubber in producing several sports equipment across the globe.
Rubber Market Trends:
Rubber is employed in the automotive industry to manufacture numerous vehicle components, such as tires, hoses, seals, gaskets, belts, engines, and exhaust systems, to improve the performance and durability of the vehicle. This, coupled with increasing sales of luxury vehicles on account of rapid urbanization and inflating income levels, represents one of the major factors strengthening the market growth around the world. Moreover, there is a rise in the adoption of rubber in the construction industry for roofing, waterproofing, flooring, soundproofing, and insulation. This, along with the growing number of construction projects in the residential, commercial, and industrial areas, is influencing the market positively. In addition, there is an increase in the use of rubber in the production of various medical equipment and devices, including respirators, face masks, and gowns on account of their numerous advantages.
