Report ID: 275149 4200 Chemical & Material 377 238 Pages 4.7 (38)

Market Overview:

The global ulcanizing agent market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 5.5% during the forecast period from 2018 to 2030. The growth in the market can be attributed to the increasing demand for rubber products, especially in automotive and construction industries. In addition, the growing awareness about safety and environmental concerns is also driving the demand for rubber products, which in turn is fueling the growth of ulcanizing agent market. Based on type, hardener segment dominates the global ulcanizing agent market with a share of more than 50%. This can be attributed to its ability to improve properties such as tensile strength and abrasion resistance of rubber products. Based on application, rubber vulcanization accounts for majority share in terms of revenue followed by others applications such as adhesive bonding & sealants, cable insulation etc.

Global Ulcanizing Agent Industry Outlook

Product Definition:

A vulcanizing agent is a compound that, when added to rubber, accelerates the curing process.


Hardener is a chemical used in the Ulcanizing agent to make it solid. It helps in increasing the viscosity of ulcanium, which is an essential ingredient for canning and pickling vegetables & fruits. The demand for hardeners has been rising on account of its increasing application scope in food processing industry as well as growing consumption of canned foods across the globe.


Accelerator is a chemical that increases the rate of reaction during polymerization and helps to obtain high molecular weight polymers. It also helps in increasing the molecular weight range of polymers. The most commonly used accelerators are sodium methoxide, triethylene diamine (TED), N-methyl morpholine, and 1-4 pyrrolidinediamine.

The global ulcanizing agent market size was valued at USD 648 million in 2016.

Application Insights:

Rubber vulcanization was the largest application segment in 2017 and is projected to witness significant growth over the forecast period. The segment will expand at a CAGR of XX% from 2018 to 2030 owing to an increase in demand for automotive tires across various regions, including North America and Europe.

Ulcanizing agents are used for cross-linking of rubber components during vulcanization process, which helps maintain tire performance under all weather conditions including cold temperature and high humidity. Furthermore, these cross-linkers also help reduce rolling resistance by increasing the average molecular weight of rubber component produced thereby improving vehicle efficiency. These factors are expected to fuel market growth over the coming years.

Other applications include polyurethane foam production as well as coatings & adhesives application segments among others that use adhesive tapes or films with high strength grip on surfaces such as glass, metal etc.

Regional Analysis:

Asia Pacific dominated the global ulcanizing agent market in 2017. The region is expected to witness a CAGR of XX% over the forecast period, owing to increasing demand for high-performance tires from automotive manufacturers such as Ford and Volkswagen Group. In addition, rising construction spending by developing economies such as China and India are anticipated to fuel product demand in Asia Pacific during the forecast period.

Europe accounted for a significant share of revenue in 2017 on account of rapid growth witnessed by tire manufacturing companies including Bridgestone, Michelin and Goodyear across major countries including Russia, Italy and France over past few years. Moreover, stringent regulations regarding VOC emissions coupled with growing environmental awareness among consumers are expected to drive market growth over next eight years across Europe region.

Growth Factors:

  • Increasing demand for rubber products from automotive and industrial sectors
  • Growing awareness about the benefits of using ulcanizing agents in rubber products
  • Rising investments in R&D to develop new and better-quality ulcanizing agents
  • Proliferation of small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) in the market
  • Growing popularity of green technologies
