Chloroprene rubber (CR), also known as neoprene, is a synthetic diene-based elastomer produced by emulsion polymerization of chloroprene or 2-chlorobutadiene. It is widely used for cable jackets, gaskets, tubing, seal, O-rings, tire sidewalls, orthopedic braces, wet suits, and electrical insulation. CR exhibits good mechanical strength, high elasticity, adherence to various surfaces, and resistance to heat, solvents, and sweat. It is also defiant to physical failures, such as cuts and damages caused by abrasions, flexing, and twisting. As a result, CR finds extensive applications across the automotive, construction, electronics, furniture, and textile industries.
The increasing product utilization in the electrical and electronics industries is one of the key factors driving the market growth. CR is widely used to manufacture cables due to its low weight, high flame retardancy, and resistance to weathering, heat, cold, moisture, and stretching properties. In addition, the incorporation of the compound to manufacture cable jackets for optical fibers used in the telecommunication industry is acting as another growth-inducing factor. Furthermore, the widespread product adoption in the automotive industry to manufacture tires, power transmission belts, braking and steering system components, hose covers, and oil seals is providing a considerable boost to the market growth. Apart from this, the rising adoption of CR in the construction industry to provide electrical insulation and produce elevator astragals, deviator pads, and seals for doors, windows, and facades is creating a positive outlook for the market. Moreover, widespread product utilization as an adhesive for bonding steel, aluminum, copper, ceramic, plastics, and cement products due to their high initial adhesive power, enhanced cohesive strength, and resistance to water, oil, alcohols, and aliphatic hydrocarbons is providing an impetus to the market growth. Other factors, including escalating demand for fuel-efficient vehicles, extensive research and development (R&D) activities towards promoting advanced vulcanization processes, and rising product utilization for manufacturing gloves, are anticipated to drive the market growth.
