Rubber additives are rubber polymers processed by the amalgamation of some chemicals to increase or enhance the overall performance. Due to high viscosity and cross-linkage capability, they are tremendously adopted in industrial manufacturing and production. They represent the rubber industry through an array of portfolios such as processing agents, high-performance bladders for tires, anti-sun check waxes, and others.
Global Rubber Additives Market Dynamics
- Increasing demand from non-tire rubber applications
Due to rubber additives strong demand in applications other than tires, it is predicted that the need for rubber additives would rise. Developing countries are rapidly industrializing, which is driving up demand for rubber goods. Additionally, the market for rubber additives that give rubber products excellent attributes is driven by the growing demand for high-quality rubber products.
- Growth in the tire and rubber industry
The demand for rubber additives is increasing due to the expansion of the tire and rubber industries. The market for rubber additives is significantly dominated by the tire industry. The automotive industry's rising need for tires, particularly in emerging markets, is anticipated to fuel market expansion. The growing customer preference for tires that last longer and are more robust is also anticipated to increase demand for rubber additives.
High-performance rubbers have become more common as a result of technological advancements and advances in the rubber sector. These materials offer excellent qualities such as high strength, durability, and resistance to heat, abrasion, chemicals, and ozone. To improve their processing and performance, some rubbers need unique additives. In order to increase the adhesion between rubber and fillers like silica and carbon black, silane coupling agents are utilized. Similarly, rubber compounds are stabilized and protected from burning by the application of organophosphites. The market for rubber additives in a variety of applications, including tires, hoses, belts, seals, gaskets, and medical devices, is anticipated to benefit from the development of these high-performance rubbers.
The price changes of raw materials like natural rubber, synthetic rubber, carbon black, zinc oxide, and others have an impact on the market for rubber additives. These raw resources come from petroleum and natural gas, whose supply and demand are unstable. The market for rubber additives is unstable as a result of fluctuations in the price of raw materials, which can have an impact on manufacturers' profitability. Therefore the fluctuation in raw materials acts as a restraint to the global rubber additives market
The significant obstacle faced by the rubber additives market is environmental laws and sustainability worries. Numerous compounds that may be harmful to the environment and human health are included in rubber compositions. Some rubber additives, including nitrosamines, polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs), and heavy metals, are thought to be hazardous or carcinogenic. As a result, different regulatory organizations like REACH, EPA, FDA, etc. have either restricted or outright forbidden the use of certain compounds. To lessen the negative environmental effects of rubber additives, manufacturers must adhere to these laws and use environmentally appropriate substitutes, Hence, the environmental regulations act as a challenge for the rubber additives market.
- In June 2022, Evonik launched POLYVEST eCO, sustainable liquid polybutadiene it can be used as raw material for adhesives and sealants or as a liquid rubber additive in tire production. This product line is said to reduce the use of fossil raw materials by up to 99.9%.
- In March 2023, According to H.M. Royal. , Bruggemann, a polymer additives company, has introduced a new technology in rubber additives that involves the combination of two additives, TP 1862 and LP21-103, to create a rubber-to-metal adhesive that eliminates the need for resorcinol and cobalt salt
