Global SR market to reach $45 billion by 2023

DEERFIELD BEACH, Fla.—The global synthetic rubber market is expected to exceed $45 billion by 2023 growing at a CAGR rate of more than 5 percent during that span, a recent report suggests.

A May study by Market Research Engine on the synthetic rubber market has revealed that major driving forces for the growth include growing demand in the automotive industry and rising footwear market.

The restraining factors, the research said, will be oversupply due to capacity additions as well as growing replacement of SR by natural rubber.
