The global rubber processing chemicals market size is expected to reach USD 7.84 billion by 2028 according to a new study by Polaris Market Research. The report “Rubber Processing Chemicals Market Share, Size, Trends, Industry Analysis Report, By Product (Accelerators, Anti-Scorch Agents, Blowing Agents, Anti-degradants, Flame Retardants, Processing Aid, Polymerization Regulation); By Application; By End-Use; By Regions; Segment Forecast, 2021 – 2028” gives a detailed insight into current market dynamics and provides analysis on future market growth.
The demand for rubber processing chemicals is expected to increase during the forecast period owing to wide applications in industries such as building and construction, automotive, manufacturing, and other sectors. Increasing demand for modernized and high-performing vehicles along with stringent vehicular safety regulations, increasing investment in non-tire rubber applications, especially in emerging economies of Asia Pacific, supplement demand.
The different products include accelerators, anti-scorch agents, blowing agents, anti-degradants, flame retardants, processing aid, polymerization regulation, and others. The demand for anti-degradants is expected to be high during the forecast period. The use of anti-degradants protects rubber products from external influences and the aging process. Long-term exposure to environmental factors such as heat, oxygen, and UV light among others result in damaged rubber products, supporting the market growth of the rubber processing chemicals.
The tire segment dominated the global market for rubber processing chemicals in 2020. Rubber processing chemicals are used in tire manufacturing for greater strength, enhanced temperature resistance, and increased durability. These chemicals offer reinforcement to tires, preventing erosion and making them stronger.
There has been an increasing penetration of passenger vehicles, driving the market growth of the rubber processing chemicals. The growth in production volume of electric vehicles, increasing need for fuel-efficient vehicles, and stringent government regulations have increased the demand for rubber processing chemicals in tire manufacturing.
