The global rubber masterbatch market size is expected to gain prominence in the upcoming years owing to the booming growth of the construction industry, finds Fortune Business Insights™ in its report, titled “Rubber Masterbatch Market Size, Share & Industry Analysis, By Type (Natural, Synthetic), By Application (Tires, Rubber Pipes, Rubber Shoes, Others) and Regional Forecast, 2021-2028”. Rubber masterbatches are essential components in the formulation of rubber products. These additives are widely adopted in the production of pipes that are used in buildings and other constructions to supply water to houses and transport waste from residential and commercial spaces. The promising projections of the growth of the construction industry are likely to create plenty of lucrative opportunities in this market. According to Global Construction Perspectives and Oxford Economics, construction output worldwide will surge at a rate of 85% over the next decade, hitting a value of USD 15.5 trillion by 2030. Even amidst the current pandemic, Oxford Economics estimates that the global construction industry will grow by 35% and reach USD 5.8 trillion. The demand for rubber additives and other materials necessary for the production of pipes for houses and offices will, therefore, surge in the forthcoming decade.

Restraining Factor

Severe Downturn in the Auto Industry amid COVID-19 to Stall Market Growth

The multiple shocks delivered by the COVID-19 pandemic on the automotive industry have had spill-over effects on markets associated with this mammoth industry, such as the tire market. Rubber is the chief ingredient for the manufacture of tires, and rubber masterbatches are critical in managing the weight, composition, and durability of tires. However, the coronavirus-induced lockdowns and social distancing measures have spelled disaster for the auto industry. For example, in March 2020, Volkswagen announced closure of its plants in Italy and Spain, while granting paid leaves to its employees at its plant in Tennessee, USA, as the country underwent a lockdown. Similarly, other large European automakers such as Fiat Chrysler and PSA Group also declared temporary shutdown of their plants across Europe. Compounding this was the sharp decline in the demand for vehicles as remote working models were adopted by several organizations worldwide. For example, the Oxford Business Group estimates that the demand for light vehicles in Europe fell by 44% in April 2020. As a result, tire manufacturing and supply has also been impacted, which has hampered the rubber masterbatch market growth.
