The Nitrile Butadiene Rubber (NBR) market is projected to grow from USD 992.4 Million in 2017 to USD 1,393.0 Million by 2022, at a CAGR of 7.0% between 2017 and 2022.

The increase in the use of NBR in O-rings & seals and gloves applications and superior properties of NBR that include improved oil resistance and high heat stability are key factors projected to drive the growth of the NBR market. In addition, the increased demand for NBR from the automobile industry in the Asia Pacific region is another significant factor contributing to the growth of the NBR market.

Based on application, the NBR market has been segmented into O-rings & seals, hoses, belts & cables, molded & extruded products, adhesives & sealants, and gloves. The O-rings & seals segment is the largest application segment of the NBR market. O-rings and seals are used in various end-use industries, such as manufacturing, oil & gas, and automotive. The consumption of O-rings & seals in the automotive industry is directly related to vehicle manufacturing. NBR gloves are preferred over latex gloves, due to low chances of allergy and high puncture resistance.

Based on end-use industry, the NBR market has been segmented into automotive & transportation, industrial, oil & gas, mining & metallurgy, construction, and medical. Unique properties of NBR that include excellent resistance to heat, abrasion, and water have increased the applicability of NBR in various end-use industries.
