The rubber additives market size is estimated to be USD 7.8 billion in 2021 and is projected to reach USD 9.3 billion by 2026, at a CAGR of 3.5% between 2021 and 2026. Rubber additives are used to improve the resistance of rubber against the effects of heat, sunlight, mechanical stress, and others. Different types of rubber additives are antidegradants, accelerators, and processing aids. Antidegradants include phenylenediamine, phosphite, phenolic compounds, and other chemicals. Accelerators comprise benzothiazole, sulfenamides, and others. Moreover, blowing agents, peptizers, and retarders are also used for processing rubber. The growth of the rubber additives market is primarily triggered by the growing automobile industry which in turn drives the need for rubber additives. The stringent government regulations foster manufacturers to comply with the environment standards. Thus, the government regulations coupled with the growing environmental concerns are expected to restrain the growth of the market. The opportunities for this market are rapidly increasing demand from the Asia-Pacific region and emergence of high-performance rubbers.
