Nitrile Butadiene Rubber Market Dynamics and Trends

  • Rapid industrialization in developing regions is the primary factor that is propelling the demand for NBC. Because of its broad applications in various industries, the need for NBRs is expected to increase with industrialization. Nitrile rubber goods used in the sectors include hoses, transmission belts & cables, and industrial gloves.

  • Also, the high growth rate in the Automotive and Oil & Gas industries worldwide, especially in the APAC region is expected to drive the market for Nitrile Rubbers.

Nitrile Butadiene Rubber Market Segmentation Analysis

  • The Global Nitrile Butadiene Rubber Market segments the market by type, application, and end-use industry. By nature, the portion includes Hydrogenated Nitrile Butadiene Rubber (HNBR) and Carboxylated Nitrile Butadiene Rubber (XNBR). HNBR is widely known for its physical strength and retention of properties after long-term exposure to heat, oil, and chemicals.

  • It is commonly used to manufacture O-rings for automotive air-conditioning systems. The unique properties and higher temperature rating attributed to HNBR when compared to NBR have resulted in the broad adoption of HNBR in automotive, industrial, and assorted, performance-demanding applications. On a volume basis, the automotive market is the largest consumer, using HNBR for a host of dynamic and static seals, hoses, and belts.

  • HNBR has also been widely employed in industrial sealing for oil field exploration and processing, as well as rolls for steel and paper mills. As the automotive market is increasing, the demand for HNBRs is also expected to overgrow in the coming years.NBR application includes O-rings & Seals, Hoses, Belts & Cables, Adhesives & Sealants, Plastic foam, Industrial & Medical Gloves, and Others (Packings). The O-rings & Seals is the largest segment in the Application segment.

  • Also, by end-user industry, the market can be classified as Automotive, Oil & Gas, Industrial, Medical, Construction, Metallurgy & Mining, and Others. NBC is used dominantly in the Automotive Industries followed by the Oil & Gas Industry because of its excellent resistance to oil and heat.

Nitrile Butadiene Rubber Market Geographical Analysis

  • The report segments the market by geography as North America, South America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, and the Rest of the world. Geographically, Asia-Pacific is the leading market for Nitrile butadiene rubber and is estimated to account for the most significant market share in the forecast period.

  • Asia-Pacific accounted for 55% market share of synthetic rubber in 2017. This trend is estimated to continue further during the forecast period because of the rapid growth in the end-user industries in this region. Because of the large population, industries like automotive, oil & gas, and construction are witnessing high growth in APAC.

  • Governments in countries like India and China are investing heavily in the Oil & Gas industries. NBR adhesives & sealants have significant applications in Oil & Gas refineries because of their oil & heat-resistant properties. So, with the growth in the Oil & Gas sector, the market for NBR in the APAC region is also expected to grow in the coming years.
