Rubber Molding Market Trends

Growing demand from the automobile industries is driving the market growth

Market CAGR for rubber molding is being driven by the rising demand from the automobile industries, primarily in developing economies. The rising preference for the utilization of green materials and growing industrialization throughout the globe have led to the growth of market value. The growing development and technological advancement in the automotive industry are also fueling market growth. The increasing disposable income capacity of people with the rising requirement of lightweight materials in the automotive industries is also boosting market growth.

Rubber molding is the process in which rubber is shaped into functional products in the automotive industry. Injection, compression, and transfer are the most common methods for rubber molding and are placed in the mold cavity and molded into the required shape. The growth in the adoption of lightweight products in order to substitute metal products in automobile production as it enhances durability and minimizes the cost and weight of the vehicle. One of the most versatile materials, liquid silicon, is primarily utilized in molding applications; because of its flexibility, it is suitable for lenses, gaskets, and connectors and offers very good chemical, thermal, and electrical resistance. The car manufacturers are opting for a strong, durable, and ultralight material rather than high-strength aluminum and steel to meet the higher mileage standards for lightweight cars.

The changing living standards and rising urbanization has increased the requirement for advanced automobiles, rapid industrialization, manufacturing at a faster rate, and modernization of industrial machinery. The rising demand for innovative technologies in emerging economies and stringent rules for vehicular emissions and safety are also anticipated to create opportunities for the market. The manufacturers are utilizing robots in order to simplify the process of manufacturing and make it easier for the companies, thus providing growth opportunities in the rubber molding industry. The rising demand for automotive tooling in shops providing the main automobile makers creates demand for new products; these final products are largely applicable in the aerospace industry for managing performance in the extreme pressure and temperature conditions on engines and airframes.

The rubber molded products are used for creating rubber bumpers which can eliminate wear and tear on body parts and increase the durability of vehicle components. They are produced to adapt to high-temperature areas, weathering, refrigeration seals, and oil & fuel resistance for industrial applications. The rubber-molded products have various end-use applications like, for making snorkels, earplugs, gloves, fins, and many more. Thus, driving the Rubber Molding market revenue.

Rubber Molding Market Segment Insights

Rubber Molding Type Insights

The Rubber Molding market segmentation, based on type, includes Injection Molding, Transfer Molding, Compression Molding, and Others. The injection molding segment dominates the market, accounting for the largest market revenue because of the benefits provided by this molding type as automatic material feeding, application in high precision applications, closed mold injection, and a high level of repeatability. Rubber injection molding is an economical process for large volumes of medium to high-precision components and is capable of generating over-molded components with little waste of material. Further, the transfer and molding process also have various advantages, like less production cycle times than traditional compression types and high precision applications.

Rubber Molding Material Insights

The Rubber Molding market segmentation, based on material, includes Ethylene Propylene Diene Monomer (EPDM), Styrene-Butadiene Rubber (SBR), Natural Rubber (NR), and Others. The ethylene propylene diene monomer (EPDM) dominates the market because of the rising demand from the automotive section, growing penetration of electric vehicles, and strict regulations of government. EPDM has unique properties like improved ozone and UV resistance, excellent weather ability, wide and low operating temperature ranges, and the capability to form into loaded compound formulations with minimum costly filters like carbon black and clay.
