Rubber Anti-Tack Agents Market Size worth $456.1mn by 2024
Published Date: November 3, 2016 Authors: Kiran Pulidindi, Hemant Pandey
Rubber Anti-Tack Agents Market size is set to reach USD 456.1 million by 2024; according to a new research report by Global Market Insights, Inc.
Robust growth in end-user industries including automotive accompanied with increasing modifications in rubber processing will be a key industry driver. Nitrile rubber (NBR) and styrene–butadiene rubber (SBR) are majorly used in tire production due to their water, oil and abrasion resistant characteristics. Additionally, it also bids superior grip along with lower rolling resistance. In 2015, the global tires industry was roughly around 3 billion units and is forecast to surpass 4.2 billion units, which will boost global rubber anti-tack agents market size.
These agents are primarily used to eliminate cohesive property, which makes them preferred to find applications in industrial and medical sector. For instance, NBR plays a crucial role in preventing virus transmission and are widely accepted in the healthcare industry. Growing awareness and concern towards health and hygiene will stimulate rubber anti-tack agents market size.
Stearic acid is the chief raw material for stearate production, found in vegetable and animal oil & fats. Vegetable sources include shea, cocoa, soy and palm oil. Inclining oleochemicals prices may hamper rubber anti-tack agents market price trend.
Various stearates including lead are strictly regulated with environment regulations synced with them. These are mainly used in compounding applications and PVC processing. also, zinc stearate has been experiencing restricted usage owing to stringent legislations. This will hinder rubber anti-tack agents market over the forecast timeframe. However, escalating SBR manufacturing along with its widespread applications in end user industries, mainly in Asia Pacific (China, India, Malaysia and Indonesia) will create new growth avenues for industry players.
