The report states that the rising demand for synthetic rubber from the automotive industry is expected to drive the global synthetic rubber market. Rapidly expanding footwear market across the globe is also expected to augment the growth of the synthetic rubber market. However, the report mentions that oversupply of synthetic rubber due to consistent capacity additions will restrain the market during the forecast horizon. The increasing substitution of synthetic rubber by natural rubber will also hamper the growth of the market. The overall synthetic rubber market has a huge opportunity to grow with the emergence of bio-based feedstock.

On the basis of product types, the report segments the global synthetic rubber market into polybutadiene (BR), styrene butadiene rubber (SBR), nitrile butadiene rubber (NBR), ethylene propylene diene monomer rubber (EPDM), and others including CR, IIR, ABS, and TPR. Styrene butadiene rubber (SBR) accounted for over 30% share in the market in 2014 and was the largest product segment. It is a copolymer consisting of styrene and butadiene in the ratio of 3:1 by weight. Properties of SBR include heat aging and abrasion resistance. It is extensively used in manufacturing car tires where it is blended with natural rubber. SBR is also used in the manufacturing of footwear, adhesives, floor tiles, gaskets, hoses, and conveyor belts. During the forecast horizon, nitrile butadiene rubber (NBR) is expected to be the fastest growing product segment in the market. The rapid growth of this segment can be attributed to the growing demand for NBR across the automotive sector.
