Owing to its excellent resilience to solvents, neoprene is often used in the chemical industry for lining vessels or containers containing reacting substances. Endorsed by a widespread application terrain, the global neoprene industry will attract numerous investors in the years to come, especially across the economies of APAC and MEA.

The global neoprene market is anticipated to command extensive gains specifically from the automotive sector, given that the material possesses excellent weather and thermal resistance as well as exhibits high tensile strength, making its use ideal in automotive parts like power transmission belts, hose covers, CVJ boots, shock absorber seals, vibration mounts, steering system components and more. It also goes without saying that the expansion of the automotive industry worldwide will also contribute to the growth of the neoprene industry. In 2014 for example, the overall automobile production was close to 70 million units which in 2018 surpassed 97 million – an apt increase that demonstrates how the expansion of the automotive sector will impact the global neoprene market.

Neoprene foam market is anticipated to depict a substantial increase in terms of revenue in the years ahead, driven by the product’s rising application in wearable suits and gears. The material is also widely used in diving suits, dry suits and life jackets offer enhanced comfort. According to reports, a neoprene wetsuit can offer a compression e?ect to users independent of ambient pressure and wetness, offering ?uid balance identical to water immersion. In addition to its swimwear application, the material is used for making knee and elbow pads, bicycle seats, sports gloves and more.

Furthermore, in the building & construction industry, neoprene foam is used for thermal insulating and soundproofing owing to its excellent weathering and ozone resistance property. Neoprene latex, another prominent product, is also used for manufacturing industrial gloves and also in the making of adhesives which has several applications in the automotive and building & construction industries. It is irrefutable therefore, that the neoprene industry is bound to depict extensive growth primarily on account of the extensive product demand form the automotive & construction industries in particular.

Unveiling neoprene market trends from Asia Pacific

Speaking of the regional spectrum, it goes without saying that the APAC neoprene market will turn out to be a rather lucrative revenue pocket, given the massive proliferation of the automotive & construction sectors in the continent. As a matter of fact, APAC neoprene industry is forecast to depict the highest CAGR over 2019-2025. The growth can be essentially credited to the rising number of vehicle sales in the region and the extensive infrastructural expenditure across the economies of India, Japan, and China.
