US demand for industrial rubber products will reach $18.6 billion in 2012, buoyed by accelerating motor vehicle production and strong growth in the aerospace industry. Mechanical rubber goods will remain the largest segment, while other miscellaneous industrial products such as geomembranes will grow the fastest.
This study analyzes the US industrial rubber product industry. It presents historical demand data for the years 1997, 2002 and 2007, and forecasts for 2012 and 2017 by rubber product (e.g., vibration controls, body seals, wiper blades, hose, belts, roofing, floor and wall coverings, rollers and roll coverings, sheet and film); and market (e.g., machinery and equipment, motor vehicles, construction, aerospace).
The study also considers market environment factors, details industry structure, evaluates company market share and profiles 51 industry participants, including Cooper-Standard Automotive, Bridgestone and Veyance Technologies.
