Development of the sensor-based rubber tires to offer futuristic market growth opportunities

Synthetic rubber is an artificial polymer obtained from the synthesis of petroleum byproducts. Tire manufacturing companies focus on developing sensor technology-based tires to fulfil automotive industries demand for high performing tires, drives the synthetic rubber market growth. For instance, Bridgestone Corporation, a Japanese auto and truck part manufacturer started producing Smart Strain Sensor and IoT technology-based tires to reduce the tire pressure inflation level and improve the fuel performance of automotives. Besides, increasing manufacturing of synthetic tires due to their cost-effectiveness and higher durability properties over natural rubber-based tires is expected to support the product demand globally. Increasing youngsters’ demand of rubber-based sport shoes for improving their sports performance is likely to accelerate the synthetic rubber’s demand for the footwear application during the forecast period.


Rising usage in manufacturing various industrial and consumer goods to favor market growth.

Synthetic rubber is extensively used in the manufacturing of tire & tire components, non-tire automotive components, footwear, industrial goods, and others. Rising population’s demand for the smart and innovative automotive vehicles is expected to increase the synthetic rubber’s demand for the various manufacturing applications such as tire, diaphragms, engine mouths, gaskets, hoses, etc. synthetic rubber-based footwear are highly durable over the footwear of other material types. Hence, increasing population’s demand for the rubber made shoes and sandals is likely to increase the synthetic rubber market growth. Furthermore, increasing synthetic rubber’s usage in various other industries is also favoring the market growth worldwide.


Recent strategic developments in synthetic rubber market

The synthetic rubber market has undergone several significant developments, and a few of these have been mentioned below:
