Published Date: | Report Code : MT1958330


Growing demand from end-use industry applications in developing regions and promotion of application-specific grades by companies is expected to drive the nitrile butadiene rubber market during the forecast period. This market has witnessed number of key developments in terms of application-specific grade developments and strategic investments in emerging regions by companies to strengthen their market position in the global market. Some of the other key factors governing the market dynamics include regulatory scenario, exchange rates, environmental constraints, and so on. All these factors are expected to have a significant impact on the dynamics of the nitrile butadiene rubber market during the forecast period.

Nitrile Butadiene Rubber (NBR) Latex is a synthetic rubber which is formed by the copolymerization of acrylonitrile and butadiene. The prime application of NBR latex is gloves production owing to their relatively superior performance and structural attributes over other synthetic polymers. The NBR latex provides a high resilience towards oils, chemicals, fuels, and heat and its performance can be enhanced by increasing the acrylonitrile content.

Segmented  Analysis:

The Global Nitrile Butadiene Rubber (NBR) Latex Market is segmented on the basis of application and end-user. On the basis of end-user, it is segmented into O-rings & seals, hoses, belts & cables, molded & extruded products, adhesives & sealants, and gloves. The seals & O-rings are majorly used in various pressure-sensitive applications as well as in various automobile engines as reciprocating and rotary seals for relative motion between inner and outer elements. O-rings are extensively used in order to reduce the friction resulting in the increased shelf life of the vehicle and lower the overall maintenance costs. By end-user, it is segregated into automotive & transportation, industrial, oil & gas, and medical. The NBR latex is majorly used in the medical sector which includes surgical and examination gloves. NBR gloves are more preferred over latex gloves due to their properties such as low chances of allergy and high puncture resistance. The growing healthcare expenditure and the rising standard of living, along with the increasing investments in medical infrastructure are the major applications for the NBR market in this segment. there has been a significant demand of NBR latex in the automotive & transportation sector as they provide as controlled deformation, high strength, high affinity, and abrasion resistance. NBR latex is most widely used in tires and non-tire applications in the automotive & transportation industry
