Global Neoprene Market: Size, Share, Trends, Growth Report 2019-2024

by Chris jackson Market Research

Neoprene, also known as chloroprene rubber or polychloroprene, is a type of foamed synthetic rubber made through the polymerization of chloroprene. It exhibits a high level of chemical inertness, mechanical strength, low flammability, along with superior thermal, oil, water, and solvent resistance. On account of these beneficial properties, neoprene can be used as a raw material in the production of adhesives, conveyor belts, molded goods and cables. When compared to natural rubber, neoprene offers better gas permeation resistant and has better tolerance towards high temperatures up to 200 degrees Fahrenheit (F). Moreover, it is easier to produce and is preferred in applications where improved material properties are required.

Neoprene first came into existence during the 1930s when an increase in the demand for natural rubber led to the discovery of its synthetic equivalent. Wallace Carothers, a chemist in the fundamental research group of DuPont, discovered neoprene during a polymerization experiment using chloroprene. Since then, the global neoprene market size has grown substantially, reaching a volume of 384 kilotons in 2018. According to estimates by IMARC Group, the market is further expected to expand at a CAGR of around 4% during 2019-2024, reaching a volume of 498 kilotons by 2024.

Global Neoprene Market Trends

Nowadays, neoprene is widely employed in the automotive industry with rising demand for sheets and foams in the production of automobiles. These foams and sheets support a wide range of applications such as joint fillers and edge extrusions, seating, and acoustic, along with seals and gaskets which protect against the intrusion of moisture, UV light, or dirt. Besides, adhesives have been experiencing a significant rise in their demand across the globe, which, in turn, is driving the market growth of neoprene. The adhesives made with neoprene are used in industrial applications such as construction, furniture and shoemaking. Some of the other factors that are having a positive effect on the demand for neoprene include growing urbanization and recovery in infrastructure spending.
