Reclaimed rubber is a cured rubber produced after passing through various thermo-chemical processes. Reclaimed rubber is soften by shortening the polymer chain. It is used in various applications such as automobiles, aircraft, retreading, belts & hoses, footwear, and adhesives.
Growing automotive industry is fuelling the reclaimed rubber demand owing to resistance to heat and ultraviolet light. The product use is increasing in manufacturing of wheels, tires, and belt & hoses with surging demand for automobiles globally. The total automobile production in 2019 grew by approximately 5.0%. The rapidly expanding aerospace industry as a result of booming demand for aircrafts from the developing countries such as India, China, and Thailand is expected to bolster market growth. The product use in the manufacturing of extruded products such as drain tubes, pump discharge hoses is driving the market growth. Increasing use of reclaimed rubber in the manufacturing of footwear is stimulating the product demand coupled with changing trends and increased aspiration based purchasing. Growing construction industry is driving the product demand for flat roof covering due to heat and weather resistance and better aesthetic appeal. Rising demand from the households and various industries for floor matting is further augmenting the market growth due to durability and safety. Increasing consumption for packaging, electronics and other industrial applications due to fast processing and good aging is positively influencing the product demand.
Reclaimed rubber is extensively used for industrial applications in place of synthetic rubber due to sustainability, less energy consumption, and cost-effectiveness. Stringent government regulations to promote recyclable material usage to reduce environmental pollution is driving the market growth.
