Industrial Rubber Products

As Quoted In Rubber & Plastics News

Gains will be fueled by increased production of machinery, healthy growth in nonresidential construction spending, and a modest bump in motor vehicle production -- although this market will slow considerably.

US demand to rise 3.4% annually through 2019

Demand for industrial rubber products in the US is forecast to expand 3.4 percent per annum to $24.4 billion in 2019. Gains will be fueled by increased production of machinery and healthy growth in nonresidential construction spending. A modest bump in motor vehicle production will also provide industrial rubber producers with new sales opportunities, though this market will slow considerably from the robust output increases of the 2009-2014 period. However, competition from suppliers in low-cost countries will continue to restrict price increases for most industrial rubber products, limiting value gains to some degree. Furthermore, these goods will continue to face competition from less expensive plastic products in a number of applications.

Rubber roofing among fastest growing products

Bolstered by strong gains in construction activity, rubber roofing and other construction related products (such as rubber flooring, wall coverings, and geomembranes) are forecast to register the healthiest growth of any major product category through 2019. Suppliers of these products have boosted their manufacturing capacity in response to solid market conditions. For instance, in April 2015 Johns Manville (a Berkshire Hathaway company) completed an expansion at its Scottsboro, Alabama rubber roofing plant that increased the facility’s capacity by 20 percent.

Mechanical goods will continue to account for the largest share of total demand in 2019, although sales gains in this product segment will not be as strong as those forecast for others. Nearly half of all mechanical rubber goods are utilized in motor vehicle applications, where modest output gains will restrain growth to some degree. Sales of both hose and belts will outpace those of mechanical goods, supported by the wide variety of uses for these products. Suppliers of hose and belts will benefit from increased output of the durable goods, particularly machinery, in which they are used.

Construction market to post strongest gains

The construction market for industrial rubber products is expected to post the strongest gains through 2019, bolstered by a robust recovery in nonresidential building activity and an acceleration in residential construction growth. Machinery will remain the largest market for industrial rubber products, recording the largest sales advances in dollar terms, supported by ongoing production increases for both industrial machinery and off-road equipment. Gains in both the motor vehicle and other transportation equipment markets will be relatively restrained, dampened by slowing real output growth.

This Freedonia industry study analyzes the $20.6 billion US industrial rubber product industry. It presents historical demand data (2004, 2009 and 2014) and forecasts (2019 and 2024) by raw material (e.g., thermoset rubber, thermoplastic elastomers), product (e.g., mechanical rubber goods, rubber hose, rubber belts, rubber roofing) and market (e.g., OEM, MRO, machinery, motor vehicles, construction, aerospace). The study also considers market environment factors, details industry structure, evaluates company market share, and profiles 38 industry players, including Veyance Technologies, Cooper-Standard, and Gates.
