Market Overview:

The global rubber chemicals market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 5.5% from 2018 to 2030. The growth in the market can be attributed to the increasing demand for rubber chemicals from various end-use industries, such as automotive, medical, industrial and consumer goods. In addition, the growing demand for eco-friendly and bio-based rubber chemicals is also contributing to the growth of this market. On the basis of type, accelerators accounted for the largest share of the global rubber chemicals market in 2017. This can be attributed to their ability to improve process efficiency and product quality in manufacturing processes.

Global Rubber Chemicals Industry Outlook

Product Definition:

Rubber chemicals are a class of specialty chemicals used in the production of rubber products. They include accelerators, curing agents, modifiers, and antioxidants. The importance of rubber chemicals is that they impart specific properties to the final product. For example, accelerators make the rubber harder and more durable while curing agents promote cross-linking between polymer chains to give the rubber increased strength and elasticity.


Accelerator is a chemical that increases the speed of chemical reactions. It can be used in rubber chemicals for accelerating the polymerization process, which produces high-quality rubber. Rubber chemicals are used to manufacture tires and other products that require high-quality materials such as accelerators. The global market for accelerators is expected to witness significant growth over the forecast period owing to increasing demand from tire manufacturers across various regions including North America, Europe, Asia Pacific and Central & South America.

Vulcanizing Agent:

Vulcanizing agent is a chemical added to natural rubber to accelerate the vulcanization process. Vulcanizing agents are classified as organic or inorganic depending on their origin. Inorganic vulcanizing agents include antimony oxide, brominated & chlorinated, and organic includes formaldehyde & accelerator compounds.

Application Insights:

The automotive segment accounted for the largest volume share of over 30% in 2017. The growing importance of lightweight materials has led to an increased use of rubber chemicals in the automotive industry. Rubber is used as a material for manufacturing tires, which are considered as one of the most important components for any vehicle due to their ability to provide grip and handling characteristics.

Rubber compounds are also used extensively in automobile parts such as brake pads, engine mounts, gaskets and seals, shock absorbers, power steering hoses and belts owing to their high resistance against oil, gas and chemical stains. These factors have resulted in a significant rise in demand from the automotive sector over recent years.

In addition to this application area within transportation & infrastructure applications include industrial machinery & equipment (excluding rubber compounding), consumer goods (excluding footwear) construction materials other than vulcanized rubber (elements such as cables).

Regional Analysis:

Asia Pacific dominated the global market in 2017 and is expected to continue its dominance over the forecast period. The region accounted for a volume share of 68.1% in 2017, which can be attributed to high demand from various end-use industries such as automotive, construction, consumer goods and medical among others. Increasing population coupled with rapid urbanization has led to an increase in automobile production across emerging economies such as China and India thus driving product demand further.

China rubber chemicals market is anticipated to witness significant growth on account of increasing investments by domestic manufacturers along with growing consumption from other end-use sectors including automotive, construction & infrastructure among others will drive growth over the next eight years.

Growth Factors:

  • Increasing demand for rubber chemicals from the automotive industry as a result of the increasing production of automobiles.
  • Rising demand for rubber chemicals from the construction industry due to growth in infrastructure development activities.
  • Rapid growth in the Asia Pacific region, especially China and India, which is expected to drive the demand for rubber chemicals in these regions over the next few years.
  • Growing use of synthetic rubbers as compared to natural rubbers, which is expected to boost the demand for rubber chemicals in coming years
