  • June 30, 2021-Zeon Chemicals L.P. (“ZEON”) has filed an antidumping petition with the U.S. Department of Commerce and the U.S. International Trade Commission to stop the dumping of acrylonitrile butadiene rubber or nitrile rubber (“NBR”) into the United States from France, Mexico, and South Korea.

Key reasons for Nitrile Butadiene Rubber (NBR) Latex Market growth:

  • Advancement in technology and increasing investments in healthcare industry
  • Increasing product usage in food industry
  • Growing demand for gloves due to COVID-19 pandemic

Asia Pacific to dominate 49% of the market and Europe to grow at highest rate for nitrile butadiene rubber

The significant demand for nitrile butadiene rubber in India, China, and ASEAN countries stems mostly from bulk manufacture of molded and extruded polymer products and automotive components. In September 2022, the Indian cabinet approved a USD 3.5 billion incentive scheme to promote the production of fuel-cell and battery-electric vehicles, as well as drone manufacturing. These incentive programs are projected to drive the Indian automobile market and have an influence on the NBR market throughout the forecast period.

Automotive Industry and Mechanical engineering to drive the market for nitrile butadiene rubber

The automotive end-use category dominated the nitrile butadiene rubber market. The growing electric car sector in emerging countries is projected to fuel the need for large-sized seals used in batteries. Seals must be chemical and abrasion resistant since batteries are critical components in electric automobiles, which plays an essential role in seal design and is expected to impact the nitrile butadiene rubber market throughout the forecast period.

Seals and O-rings to dominate the nitrile butadiene rubber market

The nitrile butadiene rubber market was dominated by seals and O-rings. Engines, doors, batteries, power steering systems, and other vehicle components all include them. Seals and O-rings help prevent liquid or gas loss in pressure-sensitive applications like pumps, cylinders, hydraulic motors, and so on. The rising use of compressed natural gas and electric vehicles is expected to increase seal and O-ring demand, raising nitrile butadiene rubber demand in nitrile butadiene rubber industry.

Nitrile Butadiene Rubber (NBR) Market: Growth Dynamics

NBR is high in demand in automobile industry to produce oil/fuel seals and hoses. This growing demand demonstrates lucrative avenues for players in the nitrile butadiene rubber (NBR) market during projected period. This rubber has a capability to sustain in varied temperatures. It includes as low as -40 Degrees Celsius to extreme temperature of around +107 Degrees Celsius. This specialty makes them a perfect choice in aeronautical sector.

Gloves manufactured using NBR are three-fold more puncture resistant than that of produced from natural rubber. This quality boosts its demand among companies engaged in gloves manufacturing, thereby push the nitrile butadiene rubber (NBR) market growth. Similarly, growing demand for these products from the automobile sector is one of the key reasons for this growth. nitrile butadiene rubber can be hydrogenated. This allows them to be used in production of o-rings for air conditioners from automobiles.

Nitrile Butadiene Rubber Market Drivers

  • The growth of the Automotive Industry and the Aerospace & Defense Industry:

One of the key drivers for the Nitrile Butadiene Rubber Market is the growth and the increase in demand for the Automotive and Aerospace industries. According to the Organisation Internationale des Constructers automobiles (OICA), the total production of vehicles increased to 57.3 million in 2029 which was a 9.1% increase from the production values of 2022. According to the Boeing Commercial Market Outlook 2021-2040, 43,610 new aircraft will be added to the global fleet by 2040 which accounts for a growth of 3.1%. Nitrile butadiene rubber is essential in these industries as they are used in various applications such as hoses, rollers, belts, tires, cables, and so on. As such, this is a great driving factor for the Nitrile Butadiene Rubber Market within the forecast period of 2023-2029.
