Solo, "The Sale of the Synthetic Rubber Plants," The Journal of Industrial Economics, No-vember This history of the government-funded synthetic rubber research program () offers a rare analysis of a cooperative research program geared to the improvement of existing products and the creation of new ones.

The founders of the program believed the best way to further research in the new field was through collaboration among corporations, universities, and the federal government. It is a critical period for the industry where fundamental changes are taking place in the way rubber is produced and marketed for competitive survival.

In the long run, it is the cost differential which will sustain either the natural rubber industry or the synthetic rubber industry. natural rubber, synthetic rubber and reclaimed rubber. Natural rubber is produced from the sap of rubber tree, which grows primarily in South East Asian countries.

Synthetic rubber is artificial rubber, made from raw materials such as butadiene, styrene, isoprene, chloroprene,File Size: KB.

Plantation rubber from Southeast Asia thus provided abundant quantities until World War II. Competition from the synthetic rubber industry, owing to cheap oil (until ) and the fast-growing world market in the last 40 years, eroded NR's technoeconomic share of the by: 6.

Both fragmented and competitive, the global synthetic rubbers market is choc-o-bloc with large, medium, and small players. To beat competition in such a cutthroat environment, the deep-pocketed players are seen upping spends on research and development to launch better products.

Whether natural or synthetic, rubber is an essential raw material. More than half of all the rubber produced is used for tires and tubes for automobiles, trucks, and other vehicles; it is also used in making rain wear, shoes, rubber gloves, medical syringes, large storage containers, floor coverings, balls for sports, insulating materials, and many other products.

Rubber industry comprises companies that operate by manufacturing, producing and supplying a wide range of rubber products, including automotive parts, doormats, rubber bands and rubber gloves. Due to the diversity of goods, this industry sells to a number of downstream industries, including manufacturing, construction and healthcare companies.

Key Chinese Synthetic Rubber Enterprises. KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia—World demand for rubber is estimated to have fallen percent year-on-year in to million metric tons, new figures from the International Rubber Study Group show. But demand is set to show a percent year-on-year increase this year, according to the latest edition of the IRSG's World Rubber Industry Outlook.

Synthetic rubber type is likely to gain popularity in industrial rubber market and surging automotive sector is expected to drive the sales of this product. Demand for light-weight vehicles, fuel-efficiency and environment-friendly automotive components has been influencing automotive industry in adopting eco-friendly industrial rubber/5(21).

A synthetic rubber is any artificial elastomer. These are mainly polymers synthesized from petroleum byproducts. About million metric tons of rubbers are produced annually, and of that amount two thirds are synthetic.

Global revenues generated with synthetic rubbers are likely to rise to approximately US$56 billion in Synthetic rubber, like natural rubber, has uses in the automotive industry. According to the International Institute of Synthetic Rubber Producers (IISRP), the million-metric-ton-per-year North American synthetic rubber industry showed no growth in Demand for SBR--the largest segment--fell by % during the year.
