Synthetic Rubber Market Trends:

Increasing Product Demand in the Automotive Industry

The growing utilization of synthetic rubber in the automotive sector for the production of tires, hoses, belts, and other car components is one of the major factors bolstering the market growth. Tires are predominantly made by using styrene-butadiene rubber due to its durability and resistance to wear over time. Moreover, the growing vehicle production and ownership are prompting the demand for efficient automotive parts, which is positively impacting the synthetic rubber market outlook. Around 50% of car tires are made of styrene-butadiene rubber blended with natural rubber. According to the National Bureau of Statistics of China, the Chinese tire industry made about 859.19 million tires in 2022. In addition to this, the escalating demand for both commercial and passenger vehicles is significantly impacting the market for tires, which in turn is offering lucrative growth opportunities to the synthetic rubber market. For instance, according to EV-Volumes.com, the unit volume of global EV sales is projected to triple from 10.5 million in 2022 to over 31 million in 2027. Such a massive utilization of synthetic rubber in the production of tires and the bolstering demand for vehicles are anticipated to drive the market growth.

Rapid Advancements in Synthetic Rubber Technology

The rising technological innovations in the production and processing of synthetic rubber are also creating a positive outlook for the market. In line with this, the development of new synthetic rubber types with enhanced properties like improved heat resistance, lower rolling resistance in tires, and better overall performance is anticipated to propel the synthetic rubber market share. For instance, China's bionic synthetic rubber technology, developed in December 2023, achieved important breakthroughs in tire production, taking the country one step further in the domestic production of civil aircraft tires. Yang Xiaoniu, director of the Changchun Institute of Applied Chemistry of the Chinese Academy of Sciences, stated that the service life of aircraft tires made of bionic synthetic rubber is 35% longer than those made of natural rubber under extreme working conditions. Similarly, in January 2024, Qingdao Sentury Tire, in collaboration with the Qingdao Institute of Bioenergy and Processes (Qingdao Energy Institute), achieved a significant milestone in tire technology by pioneering the development of Ultra-High-Performance (UHP) tires incorporating "iron-based combed" synthetic rubber. Tires made using this technology showcased a positive impact on fuel consumption during highway-speed tests. 

Widespread Diversification of Product Applications 

The widespread utilization of synthetic rubber in various industries, such as construction, footwear, adhesives, and aerospace, is further propelling the synthetic rubber market revenue. Moreover, the growing versatility and ability of synthetic rubbers to be customized for specific applications is positively impacting the market growth. The widespread utilization of synthetic rubber in the construction of residential and commercial establishments, especially in emerging nations, for sealing and insulating purposes to enhance the durability and weather resistance of structures is augmenting the synthetic rubber market demand. The market size of the real estate industry in India was valued at around US$ 477 Billion in 2022 and is estimated to reach US$ 1 trillion by 2030. Additionally, approximately 4.4 billion people, or 56% of the world's population, now reside in cities. By 2050, nearly 7 out of 10 people will live in cities, with the urban population predicted to surpass its current level. Such a significant rise in urban population and bolstering demand for residential establishments is anticipated to propel the synthetic rubber market recent price in the coming years.
