Market trend: bio-based tires helping market growth

The tires used in automotive vehicles are going to be bio-based during the forecast period. There is a great turmoil in the rubber industry to manufacture automotive vehicle tires made from renewable raw materials.

According to Hitesh Bhatia, a lead analyst at Technavio for plastics, polymers, and elastomers research, “Companies such as DuPont have been working on the use of renewable raw materials, which can be used to manufacture tires. DuPont Industrial Biosciences is working to develop a product known as BioIsoprene, which is a bio-based alternative for petroleum-derived isoprene. BioIsoprene can be used to produce synthetic rubber, which is regarded as an alternative for natural rubber and other elastomers.”

Market challenge: fluctuating raw material prices for synthetic rubber

Synthetic rubber is manufactured by refining crude oil to naphtha and natural gas. These are derived from the fractional distillation of petroleum products. With price fluctuations in the crude oil market, the manufacturing cost of synthetic rubber will fluctuate and have a significant impact on the price of rubber in the global market. The decline in the oil prices has compelled the vendors operating in the market to implement various strategies in the form of cost-cutting measures and other implications.
