The market is anticipated to grow by developing automotive, mechanical engineering, medical, construction, oil and gas, and other sectors across the globe. Nitrile butadiene rubber (NBR) products are used for sealing, medical gloves, and belts in transmission and conveyor devices which are expected to drive its demand in the sectors mentioned above over the forecast period.

Nitrile butadiene rubber exhibits low gas permeability, heat resistance, toughness, high tensile strength, good oil resistance, abrasion resistance, low compression set, and resilience. These properties make it popular in applications requiring oil resistance, performance under extreme temperatures, and personal protection. Due to its more comprehensive temperature range, nitrile butadiene rubber is used in the aerospace sector for self-sealing fuel tanks and bladders. Also, hypoallergenic qualities of nitrile butadiene rubber have created the opportunity to manufacture thinner disposable gloves in medical end-use to heavy-duty gloves in nuclear applications.

Key market players are executing expansion strategies to enter new markets and reach a broader audience in the end-use sectors. In April 2021, ARLANXEO entered the Indian sub-continent with the launch of ARLANXEO India Private Limited. India has one of the largest vehicle markets globally and is expected to grow by the end of 2021 further. By growing its presence in India, ARLANXEO aims to broaden its capabilities to meet the needs of quickly expanding industries in India, such as automotive, tires, pharmaceutical, and end-user products.

The market has witnessed mergers and acquisitions by major players to strengthen their market presence. For instance, in April 2020, Synthomer plc acquired OMNOVA Solutions Inc. This acquisition is expected to strengthen Synthomer plc's presence in North America and increase its presence in Asia, Europe with further penetration of the market in China.
