Isoprene Market, Competition by Company, Country, Application, Type & Forecast to 2025

Market Overview

Isoprene Market is set to perceive substantial growth by 2025, expanding at an impressive growth rate during the forecast period (2017-2025).

Growth Factors and Key Restraints

Increasing Applications in Tires and Industrial Rubber to Bolster Market Growth

The worldwide isoprene market growth is predominantly fueled by the expanding end-use applications in making tires, industrial rubber and adhesives. The elevated use of isoprene to make synthetic rubber can be attributed to its numerous performance characteristics, like tremendous flexibility that is similar to natural rubber, the ability to confer outstanding durability to the end products and strength without any odor. Backed by these attractive properties, isoprene finds significant applications when it comes to making different automotive parts other than tires, like engine mounting, fuel hose, suspension bush, mud flap, floor mats and exhaust rubber hangers. This factor has been responsible for the lucrative market growth in the past couple of years. A noteworthy trend that has been making rounds in the global isoprene market is in the form of rapid strides that is being witnessed by the automotive industry in a number of developing economies, especially Asia Pacific, providing a substantial thrust to the market position.  The speedy rate of urbanization in these emerging regions will foster the demand for SUVs and sedans, catalyzing the demand for isoprene in diverse end-use applications.
