Press Release

Polyisoprene Market Was Worth USD 2.5 Billion in 2020 | CAGR 4.5%

Date : Feb 27, 2023

According to Ameco Research, the global market for Polyisoprene was valued USD 2.5 Billion in 2020 and will grow at a CAGR of 4.5% over the predicted period 2021 – 2028.

With the worldwide demand for rubber products exceeding the available supply of natural rubber, the primary raw materials for such goods are derived mostly through chemical synthesis. Both synthetic and natural varieties have similar qualities, but the molecules structure from which they are made differs slightly. Natural rubber is used to make polyisoprene, which is subsequently used to make various forms of rubber. Polyisoprene is a long-chain molecule made up of hundreds or thousands of smaller isoprene molecules that are linked together.

Companies operating in the tire industry are continuously researching for better product development. For instance, Bridgestone Corporation announced that it had successfully produced synthetic isoprene rubber (IR) using a new polymerization catalyst developed specifically for the firm. Furthermore, the company has set a target of making 100 percent of the raw materials used in its tires sustainable by the year 2050. Bridgestone is boosting research & development activities on a variety of raw materials, including natural rubber and polyisoprene, to achieve this goal. Thus, these activities also help the polyisoprene market to grow with a significant push in the coming years.

The growing application of polyisoprene in tires stimulates the polyisoprene market

3,4-polyisoprene can be utilized in tire tread compositions to improve traction and other tire performance qualities. Tires with good grip characteristics on both dry and wet situations are highly desirable. However, improving a tire's grip properties without compromising its rolling resistance or tread wear has always been challenging. Because good fuel economy is almost always a priority, low rolling resistance is critical. Tread wear is also an important factor to consider because it is usually the most critical factor that dictates the tire's lifespan.

The growing use of synthetic polyisoprene rubber in a variety of applications such as condoms, medical gloves, catheters, and adhesives is propelling the worldwide synthetic polyisoprene rubber market forward. Furthermore, the growing popularity of synthetic polyisoprene rubber as a natural rubber substitute is propelling the synthetic polyisoprene market forward. Synthetic polyisoprene rubber is gaining popularity among manufacturers for a variety of uses. Then again, the volatility of raw material prices and the high cost of polyisoprene is expected to hinder the market growth.

Global Polyisoprene Market Classification

The global polyisoprene segmentation includes the application and geography. By application, the market is categorized into tires & related products, non-automotive engineering, latex, belts & hose, footwear, and others. Among them, tire and related products acquired a significant amount of share in 2020. Isoprene producers are affected by trends in the tire business and other synthetic rubber products. The automotive industry, in turn, is dependent on tire industry growth. Since the year 2000, global rubber production has augmented. Rubber production in the world rose from 23,680 kilotons in 2010 to 26,774 kilotons in 2015. Furthermore, rising disposable income levels and increasing demand for EVs are expected to drive market expansion throughout the forecast period.

Moreover, the growing application of medical gloves owing to the rise in COVID-19 cases has driven the latex demand. The increased use of polyisoprene in the healthcare, coatings, and adhesives industries is predicted to boost demand for latex for medical gloves. Polyisoprene has a number of advantages over natural rubber, including better tensile and shear strengths, which has led to its application in safety footwear and hoses in the oil and gas, construction, steel, and chemical manufacturing industries. Due to the carbon footprints caused by gasoline and diesel-powered cars, natural gas demand has increased in the oil and gas industry. Over the forecast period, the market is expected to develop due to increased investment and exploration activities in natural gas and steel manufacturing

Regional Stance

North America, Asia-Pacific, Latin America, Europe, and the Middle East & Africa are the regional categorization of the global Polyisoprene market. In 2020, the Asia-Pacific region accounted for the majority of the share and is likely to continue its trend during the forecast period 2021 – 2028. The market for Asia-Pacific is growing due to the increasing government support, rapidly growing population, and presence of small & medium players. China is one of the leading producers of polyisoprene elastomers with various producers pivoting their facilities to China. Additionally, the growing medical and automotive sectors in the APAC region is expected to drive the market during the predicted period 2021 – 2028. Europe and North America regions are witnessing a significant growth rate in the coming years due to the well-established automotive, healthcare, and tire industries.
