Nitrile butadiene rubber (NBR) is a synthetic rubber. Commonly known as Buna-N, it is formed by the copolymerization of acrylonitrile and butadiene. It is known as the base of rubber products in various sectors including automotive and industrial.
Based on application, the NBR market has been segmented into O-rings & seals, hoses, belts & cables, molded & extruded products, adhesives & sealants, and gloves. The O-rings & seals segment is the largest application segment of the NBR market. O-rings and seals are used in various end-use industries, such as manufacturing, oil & gas, and automotive. The consumption of O-rings & seals in the automotive industry is directly related to vehicle manufacturing. NBR gloves are preferred over latex gloves, due to low chances of allergy and high puncture resistance.
Based on end-use industry, the NBR market has been segmented into automotive & transportation, industrial, oil & gas, mining & metallurgy, construction, and medical. Unique properties of NBR that include excellent resistance to heat, abrasion, and water have increased the applicability of NBR in various end-use industries. NBR is widely used in the production of sealing products for automotive & transportation, oil & gas, manufacturing, and mining industries.
Asia Pacific is estimated to be the largest market for NBR; this market in the Asia Pacific region is projected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period. Over the past few years, vehicle manufacturing in countries, such as China, India, Japan, and Indonesia has witnessed exponential growth. Thus, the rise in the production of automobiles has contributed to the increased consumption of NBR in the Asia Pacific region.
