Rubber Industry Market Research
Rubber is present in our everyday lives
Rubber is found in many of the most important products that we use daily such as surgical gloves, rubber bands and tires. Rubber is an essential material and one of the most important raw materials of modern society. The rubber industry is worth billions of dollars and presents numerous opportunities for growth and new product development.
There are numerous types of rubber including Neoprene Rubber, Butyl Rubber, Styrene-Butadiene Rubber, Fluorosilicone Rubber, Silicone Rubber, Nitrile Rubber, and EPDM Rubber. Key drivers of product quality include elasticity, thermal contraction and durability.
Much of the world’s rubber production occurs in high growth emerging markets in South East Asia including in Thailand, Malaysia, Indonesia, Vietnam and India. Many of these countries consider the industry to be of national strategic importance and have councils and trade programs focused on boosting exports. Operating in these high growth economies presents numerous opportunities for growth and for boosting efficiency and developing Go-To-Market Strategy.
