Global Chloroprene Rubber Market was valued at USD 1,222.6 Million in 2018 and is expected to register a CAGR of 3.80% to reach USD 1,576.3 Million by the end of 2025.
Chloroprene rubber is a synthetic rubber manufactured by chlorine-butene monomer polymerization. Chloroprene rubber is characterized by its balance of properties, which makes it unique among synthetic elastomers. It exhibits high mechanical strength, low flammability, aging resistance, high ozone and weather resistance, excellent resistance toward chemicals, moderate oil and fuel resistance, and adhesion to many substrates. Chloroprene rubber is produced in a variety of grades in both dry and latex forms.
The growth of the global chloroprene rubber market is primarily driven by the expanding automotive industry in developing economies of Asia-Pacific and the Middle East & Africa. The major applications of chloroprene rubber in the automotive and general industries are in the manufacturing of hoses, conveyors and transmission belts, and molded parts. Besides, the increasing demand for chloroprene rubber adhesives in the footwear industry coupled with the healthy growth of the footwear industry across the globe is expected to be the other key factor fueling market growth.
The expanding building and construction industry in the developing countries with an increase in both residential and non-residential construction activities together with the growing popularity of chloroprene rubber in the manufacturing of gloves is expected to create lucrative opportunities for the players operating in the global chloroprene rubber market.
One of the prominent trends noticed among the players operating in the global chloroprene rubber market is capacity expansion. For instance, in August 2019, Tosoh Corporation proposed to increase the production capacity for chloroprene rubber (Skyprene) at its plant in Shunan City, Yamaguchi Prefecture, Japan.
However, the availability of substitutes to chloroprene rubber such as styrene-butadiene rubber (SBR), nitrile rubber (acrylonitrile butadiene copolymer), epichlorohydrin rubber (ECO), and natural rubber is likely to hamper the market growth during the review period.
