Market Insights

Due to the changes in nitrile butadiene (NBR) preference towards hydrogenated nitrile butadiene rubber (HNBR) the HNBR became one of the rapidly increasing raw materials for rubber products manufacturing. The ever growing preference of consumers for high-quality rubber demands a shift in the rubber manufacturing method. Hydrogenated nitrile butadene rubber is the center of attention in many automotive, building, petroleum and gas and equipment applications, due to its physical strength and magnificent retention characteristics. In the 2018 markets of hydrogenated nitrile butadiene rubber, automotive sector alone accounted of 47 percent. Given its popularity and contribution to the development of the synthetic rubber sector in many industrial applications, companies strive to increase their manufacturing capacity for HNBR. ARC has performed comprehensive studies on the hydrogenated butadien nitrile rubber industry by sensing the elevated demand for hydrogenated nitrile butadiene rubber in the end-use industry and volatility in natural rubber prices, resulting in a change towards synthetic rubber. ARC reveals the main trends in the hydrogenated nitrile butadiene rubber industry in its fresh research and describes the impact that changes in possibilities have had on major stakeholder policies in the HNBR industry.

Market landscape

A main instance of how volatility encourages development is the Synthetic Rubber Market. When financial slowdown and price decline began hampering the natural rubber sector, the synthetic market came to light. It is now a major product catering for increasing demand as a result of industrialisation. Hydrogenated nitrile butadiene rubber finds a broad range of applications in a variety of sectors among the various synthetic rubbers on the market. The growing global competition in the automotive industry made HNBR its own prominence. In the development of timing belts, new trends in engine models called for high performance material to be integrated. Automakers have began moving away from polychloroprene, replacing it with HNBR, the main raw material for timing belts, in order to tackle this need. Not only car producers but petroleum and gas giants are looking at hydrogenated nitrile butadiene rubber for countless apps on oilfields, including screening, gaskets, down-holes, etc. Although there is still a longstanding challenge to the danger of replacement for the participants in the hydrogenated nitrile butadiene rubber market, it provides a chance to develop goods that have improved characteristics.

Market Drifts

The governments of several major rubber producers like Thailand, India, Indonesia and Sri Lanka give financial support in the form of subsidies, tax breaks, as customer duty exemptions to rubber producers. For example, rubber growers and producers have been supported by the Indian govt through numerous attempts like trade fairs and buyers ' meetings.

Similarly, in Thailand a free-trade deal with rubber importing nations such as New Zealand and Australia has been endorsed by the Government for the rubber sector. These attempts are the result of increased exports of rubber from these nations to various areas of the globe, and pressure to increase rubber output. To decrease transport expenses for raw materials and boost the revenues of major tire manufacturers in North America and Europe, major nations such as China and India outsource their businesses.

The seals and gaskets sector shows a upward path, as the transport and car industries continue to be the preferred option. With 3D printing technology emerging in the manufacturing industry, the turnaround time for manufacturing seals and joints was significantly reduced. With their production capability to remain ahead of the game in the hydrogenated nitrile butadiene rubber market, the companies are building on the high demand and smooth production of seals and gaskets.


The diversification of products to cover a variety of applications is one of the main winning strategies used by major producers in the hydrogenated nitrile butadien rubber industry. Key players are aiming to capitalize on the demand for petroleum and gas, car, construction, medical and machinery sectors. In essence, they explore the appropriate potential of expanding hydrogenated butadiene rubber applications.

In the rubber sector, the manufacturing variations depend on the user trends and the requirement of final use industries are extremely dynamic. The prices for products are set according to market circumstances, to achieve a competitive advantage over other players, leading manufacturers in the hydrogenated nitrile butadiene rubber sector. They anticipate fundamentally change in the end-use sectors and the financial circumstances under which HNBR products can be priced. This approach has helped players manage the synthetic rubber industry's volatility.
