Pune, India, August, 2018 /MRFR Press Release/- Market Research Future published a half-cooked research report on “Global Isoprene Market Research Report - Forecast to 2023” – Market Analysis, Scope, Stake, Progress, Trends and Forecast to 2023.
Isoprene, a raw material in the production of synthetic rubber is obtained during the processing of petroleum or coal tar and also as a by-product of naphtha pyrolysis. Natural Isoprene Market offers an array of properties such as flexibility, and high tensile strength whereas polymer-grade synthetic polyisoprene has properties that makes him ideal to be used as viscosity increasing agent, and hypoallergenic.
On the other hand, the chemical grade polyisoprene is used for the manufacturing of tires and tubes in the automotive industry whereas the Isobutylene Isoprene is used as a fuel and lubricant additive in the automobile industry. Isobutylene is a class of thermoplastic elastomers and has some specific usages in the adhesive field where it represents the bases for pressure-sensitive adhesives and hot melts. The Isoprene market has become a constantly growing space due to its array of applications.
According to Market Research Future (MRFR), the market holds great potential to expand further in the years to come, garnering great prominence. MRFR in its analysis, also states that the global Isoprene market will perceive exponential growth by 2023, posting a staggering CAGR during the assessment period (2023 - 2032).
Additional factors substantiating the market growth include rapid construction activities, rising demand for tires and tubes from the automotive sector, and increasing expenditure on personal care products. Burgeoning construction and automotive sector backed by the improving economy that improves consumers’ purchasing power fosters the market growth to an extent.
Furthermore, rising crude oil production across the globe and the augmenting demand for polyisoprene products that have properties similar to natural rubber along with increasing consumption of synthetic isoprene rubber in surgical appliances are anticipated to be some of the major driving forces for the Isoprene market growth during the review period.
On the other hand, stringent regulations imposed by various government bodies is obstructing the market growth by limiting the use of toxic organic chemicals in the production of Isoprene.

June 26, 2018 – Yokohama Rubber Co. (Japan) introduced its new development of producing isoprene from a biomass. Considered as "the world's first technology" that can efficiently manufacture isoprene is the breakthrough achievement of a joint research with Japanese research institute Riken and materials supplier Zeon Corp. and YRC.
The trio discovered a new isoprene-synthesizing process using a computer-based in-silico metabolic design technology - the new artificial pathway reduces that process to two stages which are not achievable by natural enzymes. Yokohama also confirmed that this technology could also be applied to butadiene-based synthetic rubber and other diene rubbers.
