Based on types, polyisoprene elastomers market is segmented into 1,2 – polyisoprene, trans 1,4 polyisoprene, Cis – 1,4 – polyisoprene and 3,4 polyisoprene. Cis – 1,4 – polyisoprene is synthesized by two process: living anionic polymerization with lithium alkyls in nonpolar solvent or via Ziegler-Natta polymerization with Ti-Al catalyst. Cis – 1,4 – polyisoprene is the common form of polyisoprene which occurs in latex of many trees usually as natural rubber.
Based on application, polyisoprene elastomers market is segmented into tires, motor mounts, rubber bands, pipe gaskets, molded products, baby bottles, cut threads, others. Robust product demand in tires, mainly in green tires, as they provide excellent performance is anticipated to drive the market size in the coming years. Furthermore, growing product demand from construction sector in the form of adhesive and coatings will make a positive impact on the overall market growth in the coming years.
Based on end-user, polyisoprene elastomers market is segmented into automotive, construction, adhesive & sealant, healthcare and others. In automotive industry, product is majorly applicable in making interior parts, braking systems, tires, chassis, etc. as it provides mechanical properties of automotive parts and thereby extending their life cycle. Over the last few years, the automotive industry has gone through a rapid change in Asia Pacific due to rising socio-economic factors and easy loan approvals in the region. For instance, sales of automobile in India was recorded close to 24 million in 2016, which is anticipated to show positive gains and thus driving the overall polyisoprene elastomer market size in the forecast timeframe.
Asia Pacific polyisoprene elastomers market size is anticipated to witness significant growth due to accelerating growth in various end-user industries such as automotive, construction and medical industry in Indonesia, Malaysia, China and India.
