Global Nitrile Butadiene Rubber (NBR) Market: Growth Dynamics

NBR is high in demand in automobile industry to produce oil/fuel seals and hoses. This growing demand demonstrates lucrative avenues for players in the nitrile butadiene rubber (NBR) market during projected period. This rubber has a capability to sustain in varied temperatures. It includes as low as -40 Degrees Celsius to extreme temperature of around +107 Degrees Celsius. This specialty makes them a perfect choice in aeronautical sector.
