Market trend: bio-based tires helping market growth

The tires used in automotive vehicles are going to be bio-based during
the forecast period. There is a great turmoil in the rubber industry to
manufacture automotive vehicle tires made from renewable raw materials.

According to Hitesh Bhatia, a lead analyst at Technavio for plastics,
polymers, and elastomers
research, “Companies such as DuPont have
been working on the use of renewable raw materials, which can be used to
manufacture tires. DuPont Industrial Biosciences is working to develop a
product known as BioIsoprene, which is a bio-based alternative for
petroleum-derived isoprene. BioIsoprene can be used to produce synthetic
rubber, which is regarded as an alternative for natural rubber and other

Market challenge: fluctuating raw material prices for synthetic rubber

Synthetic rubber is manufactured by refining crude oil to naphtha and
natural gas. These are derived from the fractional distillation of
petroleum products. With price fluctuations in the crude oil market, the
manufacturing cost of synthetic rubber will fluctuate and have a
significant impact on the price of rubber in the global market. The
decline in the oil prices has compelled the vendors operating in the
market to implement various strategies in the form of cost-cutting
measures and other implications.
