Notch publishes new Rubber Chemicals Market Update

Notch Consulting forecasts that global demand for rubber chemicals will increase 4.1%/year from 2010 to 2015, while growth for the world excluding China will average 3.2%/year over the same period. The Chinese market is forecast to see gains of 5.7%/year from 2010 to 2015. Increased production of radial passenger tires remains the primary growth driver, reflecting robust new investment in production capacity by tire companies.

These forecasts, as well as extensive regional and product data, are included in the new issue of Notch’s biannual report, the Rubber Chemicals Market Update. The report provides current and projected demand for rubber chemicals, including antidegradants (encompassing 6PPD/IPPD, TMQ, and other antioxidants such as phenols and hydroquinones), accelerators (encompassing sulfenamides, thiazoles, and ultra and secondary accelerators) and other chemicals (such as retarders, homogenizers, adhesion promoters, and anti-reversion agents). The report includes both quarterly and annual data, and covers all years from 2000 to 2010, with forecasts for 2011 and 2015.

The report provides an update of global capacity by company for 6PPD, TMQ, and accelerators, including details on 14 recent and proposed capacity expansion projects, as well as industry news and developments. To order or for more information, please contact Notch Consulting Group at
