Rubber Vulcanizing Accelerators Enhance Tire Manufacturing Process and Reduce Sulfur Use

  • Rubber vulcanizing accelerators play an important part in the tire manufacturing process. Vulcanization is a chemical process that includes treatment of natural rubber with sulfur to form a three-dimensional cross-link between the polymer chains at a certain temperature. Vulcanization, which includes various accelerators enhances the strength and elasticity of rubber in the presence of sulfur.
  • The rubber manufacturing process includes vulcanization to provide superior properties to the rubber. Cross-linkage of the polymer chain requires time for molecular bonding. In the process, various types of catalyst compounds play a key role as an accelerator in the vulcanizing process. A few key accelerators are thiazoles, guanidines, xanthate, dithiocarbamates, and thiuram. These accelerators enhance the properties of rubber such as tensile strength, hardness, abrasion, and resistance to solvents.

Key Drivers of Rubber Vulcanizing Accelerators Market

  • Rubber vulcanizing accelerators are less toxic and non-hazardous products that are used to increase the reaction speed of vulcanization process and reduce the time for completion. Rubber vulcanizing accelerators propel the speed for vulcanizing across link bonds and reduce dependency on sulfur compounds.
  • The rubber of the tire and other vehicle components play an important role in fuel efficiency due to the excellent elasticity and strength of the rubber material. An increase in stringent regulations on the automotive industry to curb carbon emission and enhance fuel efficiency of vehicles is expected to drive the rubber vulcanizing accelerators market in the near future.
  • Shift in trend across the automotive industry toward the adoption of lightweight vehicle parts across the globe is providing a lucrative opportunity to OEM companies operating in the automotive industry. This, in turn, is projected to boost the rubber vulcanizing accelerators market in the near future.

  • Sulfonamides are an important type of accelerator utilized in the rubber industry. It is an important compound which increases the speed of the vulcanization process. This accelerator has been utilized in the manufacture of rubber for several years.

Asia Pacific to Hold Key Share of Global Rubber Vulcanizing Accelerators Market

  • In terms of geography, rubber vulcanizing accelerators market can be split across five regions: North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Latin America, and Middle East & Africa.
  • Asia Pacific is projected to gain major share of the global rubber vulcanizing accelerators market, followed by North America and Europe, during the forecast period. Rising demand for automotive vehicles along with high production in China, Japan, and South Korea is expected to fuel the demand for rubber vulcanizing accelerators during the forecast period.
  • Thailand, Indonesia, Malaysia, and India are the top five rubber producing countries in the world. An increase in stringent regulations on carbon emission and fuel efficiency across the region is likely to boost demand for rubber vulcanizing accelerators in the next few years.
  • The rubber vulcanizing accelerators market in North America and Europe is projected to expand at a moderate pace due to the presence of well-established players in the automotive industry and OEM companies operating in these regions
  • Latin America and Middle East & Africa are highly dependent on rubber imports due to the limited production of natural raw rubber in the countries in these regions. Increasing industrialization in both regions is likely to drive the demand for rubber vulcanizing accelerators in the near future.
