Key Market Trends

Rubber Processing Segment to Dominate the Market

  • Rubber processing segment stands to be the dominating segment owing to large scale consumption of zinc chemical in galvanization and manufacturing tires.
  • Zinc chemicals are widely used in the manufacturing of tires and tubes that are widely used in the automobiles, the growing automobile industry is expected to augment the overall demand for zinc chemicals in the near future.
  • Growing popularity for electric vehicle is expected to drive the demand for automotive tires, thereby propelling the consumption of tires in the automotive industry which in turn drive the zinc chemical market.
  • Since 2018, the automotive industry has been experiencing a decline in production in countries, like United States, China, and Germany, due to which the consumption of zinc chemical is expected to drop. However, from 2021, the automotive industry is expected to witness a recovery in production.
  • Asia-Pacific countries like China, India, Japan, South Korea and Thailand are the major producer of automotibles; hence the requirement for zinc chemical market is projected to increase from this region in the forecast period.
Zinc Chemical Market Revenue Share

Asia-Pacific Region to Dominate the Market

  • Asia-Pacific region stands to be the dominating region owing to the vast and extensive application of zinc chemical derivatives in various applicationa including rubber processing, chemicals paints & coatings and agriculture among others.
  • China exported 5.4 million metric ton of tires in 2018. Almost 40% of the passenger car tires (total of 2 million metric ton), were sold in the United States and European Union. Of the 3.4 million metric ton of truck and bus tires exported, nearly 25% were sold in those markets.
  • In India, there are 40 tire manufacturers and around 6,000 non-tire manufacturers producing seals, conveyor belts, and extruded and moulded rubber profiles to be used in automotive, railway, defence, aerospace and other applications.
  • Japan possesses one of the largest rubber industries in the world, with over 1.33 million ton of rubber material consumed in 2018 and witnessed a Y-o-Y growth of 3.1% over 2017. Japan is ranked third in the world, only behind China and the United States, in terms of total amount of rubber material consumed. The largest producers of tires in Japan, like Tosoh Corporation, Zeon Corp., and Toyo Tire & Rubber Co. Ltd, are undergoing capacity additions.
  • Low cost and easy availability of chemical fertilizers act as key factors for the growth of the market. Zinc sulfate is used as a fertilizer additive in chemical fertilizers, thereby stimulating the zinc chemicals' market size.
  • In China & India demand for the zinc chemical expected to increase due to the growing agrochemical industry & economic growth.Hence, all such market trends are expected to drive the demand for zinc chemical market in the region during the forecast period.
