Global Rubber Processing Chemicals

This report forecasts to 2023 global demand for rubber processing chemicals by product, application, and major world region in metric tons. Product segments include: antidegradants; accelerators; and other products such as processing aids and plasticizers, adhesion promoters, and secondary vulcanizing agents. Reported applications encompass: tires and non-tire rubber products such as hoses, mechanical goods, and belts. Major world regions include North America, Western Europe, Asia/Pacific, and all other regions.

To illustrate historical trends, world, product, application, and regional demand (including product and application segments) are provided for 2008, 2013, and 2018.

Within this report, the word "demand" is used synonymously with "consumption", and includes captive consumption. Demand for these chemicals includes only those quantities used in rubber processing; quantities used in the processing of plastics and other materials are excluded.

There is no universally accepted definition of the term "rubber processing chemical". For the purposes of this report, the term includes only chemicals used in rubber compounding. Reinforcing materials (such as silica and carbon black), inert fillers, extenders, processing oils, and diluents (such as clay, talc, and calcium) are excluded from the scope of this report. Also excluded from consideration are waxes, sulfur, zinc oxide, and stearic acid. Rubber consumption includes both natural and synthetic rubber.

Other various topics, including profiles of pertinent leading companies, are covered in this report. A full outline of report items by page is available in the Table of Contents.
