Key Market Trends

Elastomer Segment to Dominate the Market

  • The elastomer segment stands to be the dominating segment owing to continuously increasing demand from the automotive industry.
  • Elastomers are natural rubber and synthetic rubber which are used in tire production. Butadiene is used for producing rubber, as it has low rolling resistance and high resistance to wear. This provides improves the life span of tires, while reducing the consumption rate of fuel.
  • Since 2018, the automotive industry has been experiencing a decline in production in countries, like the United States, China, and Germany, due to which the consumption of tire material is expected to drop. However, from 2021, the automotive industry is expected to witness a recovery in production.
  • All the aforementioned factors are expected to drive the tire material market during the forecast period.
