Nitrile butadiene rubber (NBR), also known as Buna-N or nitrile rubber, is a synthetic rubber that is produced by the free-radical emulsion polymerization of butadiene (BD) with acrylonitrile (ACN). These rubbers are characterized by their hardness, adequate resilience, tensile strength, and stiffness. Unlike their natural counterparts, they consist of higher acrylonitrile content, making the tuber resistant to various petroleum products, such as gasoline, diesel and chemicals. In contrast, the NBR grades with low acrylonitrile content exhibit better flexibility and resilience at low temperatures. Due to its versatility, NBR finds extensive applications in adhesives, PVC modification, friction materials, gaskets, seals, diaphragms, O-rings, gasoline hoses, liners, tubing, and cable jacketing.
The market is primarily driven by the escalating demand for cross-linked NBR powder in PVC modification applications. This can be attributed to the widespread adoption of PVC materials in a wide range of industries. In line with this, the rapid utilization of nitrile butadiene rubber products, such as gaskets, seals and O-rings, in the production of automobiles is providing an impetus to the market growth. Also, the emerging trend of electric vehicles (EV) resulting in an increased need for premium quality automotive parts is also leading to a higher product uptake. Moreover, considerable growth in production-intensive industries, such as mining and food processing, are leading to the higher adoption of higher tensile strength and abrasion-resistant conveyor belts, which, in turn, is creating lucrative growth opportunities in the market. Some of the other factors contributing to the market include the increasing shale gas production operations, the growing sales of aftermarket components, the augmenting demand for bio-based feedstock, rapid industrialization and extensive research and development (R&D) activities.
