The global nitrile butadiene rubber (NBR) latex market value is expected to reach around US$ 2860.1 Mn by 2026, growing at a CAGR of 15.4% over the forecast period 2019 to 2026.
Nitrile butadiene rubber (NBR) latex is a type of synthetic latex in liquid form with milky color. It’s a part of unsaturated acrylonitrile and butadiene copolymers family. NBR latex properties include excellent tensile strength and good resistance to various oils including mineral & vegetable oils, benzene/petrol, ordinary diluted acids, and alkalines. It is used as the key part of medical and industrial applications, where oil, fuel and chemical resistance is required. Nitrile butadiene rubber (NBR) is used for manufacturing fuel and oil hoses, seals and grommets and water handling applications in automotive industry. Also, used for making laboratory and other gloves including disposable lab, cleaning, and examination gloves.
The increasing demand for NBR gloves in the medical sector owing to increasing investment in the healthcare industry is driving the market growth. The gloves are used in examinations and surgeries to restrict microorganisms transmission in the patient. The increasing demand for disposable gloves in the industrial sector, particularly in the food industry is also accelerating the market value. The increasing concern for the safety of employees working in hazardous conditions is further propelling the demand for gloves in the market. For instance, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) imposed a mandatory regulation on industrial and manufacturing firms to provide high-quality safety equipment to the workers operating under unsafe conditions.
The, environmental regulations associated with the formulation and use of rubber owing to the increasing environmental concern is likely to hamper the market growth. Additionally, the availability of substitute materials in the market is further expected to limit market growth. Whereas, increasing end-user industries in developing economies across the globe is projected to create potential opportunities over the estimated period 2019-2026.
