The Europe Nitrile Butadiene Rubber (Nbr) Market Has Projected an Expansion to Reach Approximately 350 Thousand Tonnes in 2021 and is Expected to Grow at an Impressive CAGR of 5.85% During the Forecast Period Until 2032

The Europe Nitrile Butadiene Rubber (NBR) market has projected an expansion to reach approximately 350 thousand tonnes in 2021 and is expected to grow at an impressive CAGR of 5.85% during the forecast period until 2032. In November 2022, Tatneft, one of the leading energy companies signed a license and engineering contract in place with Versalis (Italian supplier of chemicals), for the development of two rubber manufacturing facilities in Togliatti, situated in Russia. According to the contract, Tatneft will construct a NBR plant with capacity of 70 thousand tonnes per annum along with a carboxylate styrene butadiene rubber latexes (XSBR) unit with capacity of 30 thousand tonnes per annum.

Nitrile rubber, sometimes referred to as acrylonitrile butadiene rubber, nitrile butadiene rubber, NBR, and Buna-N, is a synthetic rubber. It was first synthesized during World War II, and mainly created as a substitute to rubber. It is far better than natural rubber as natural rubber get oxidized to atmospheric oxygen, oils, and solvents. NBR displays excellent mechanical properties like thermal resistance, oil resistance, chemical resistance, abrasion & water-resistance. Due to these reasons, NBR is a versatile synthetic rubber. Its major applications include hose, belting, cable, O-rings, seals, elastomeric applications, molded and extruded products, sealants, and adhesives. Moreover, NBR powder is used as an impact modifier for PVC and ABS.

The market driving factor of Nitrile Butadiene Rubber (NBR) is mainly due to their excellent properties. NBR rubbers are ideal for application in a variety of industrial fields because of their great resistance to organic solvents, oils, and fuel in addition to their good flexibility at low temperatures. It is widely employed in the automotive industry, which solely consumed approximately 40% of the market in 2021. The demand of NBR from the automotive and construction industry is expected to rise owing to industrialization in the forthcoming years. The Europe Nitrile Butadiene Rubber (NBR) market will most likely reach 650 thousand tonnes by 2032.

Based on demand by region, the Western Europe is dominating the Nitrile Butadiene Rubber (NBR) market among the regions Northern Europe, Southern Europe, Eastern Europe, and Western Europe. In 2021, Western Europe accounted a consumption of approximately 40% of the net NBR market. Moreover, France is the leading producer of NBR in Europe, with a production of approximately 24% of the NBR in 2021.

Based on the end-user industry, the Europe Nitrile Butadiene Rubber (NBR) market is segregated into Automotive, Construction, Medical Gloves, and Other end-use industries. The automotive sector is dominating the NBR market owing to its usage to manufacture components such as gasoline hoses, seals, rollers, and other components that need to be resistance to oil. Furthermore, its application in the construction sector is anticipated to further propel the demand of NBR in the forecast period. Moreover, gloves constructed with NBR are three times more resistant to rupture and damage than those made in natural rubber.

Major players in the production of Europe Nitrile Butadiene Rubber (NBR) are Arlanxeo, Omnova Solutions/Synthomer, Synthos SA, Versalis, and SIBUR/Sinopec (Krasnoyarsk rubber plant).
