The primary factors shaping the growth of the global hydrogenated nitrile butadiene rubber market include increasing demand from diverse end-use industries such as automotive, medical, construction, oil & gas, and machinery. The automotive industry is a major end-use industry for HNBR where it experiences high demand in applications demanding high performance. Desirable properties of HNBR such as excellent resistance to oils & solvents, ozone & weather conditions, temperatures, and other superior mechanical properties lead to increased demand from the automotive industry. The rise in the operating temperatures in vehicles has resulted in the development of harsh automotive fluids such as engine oils and lubricants, which further necessitates the use of specialty elastomers with greater heat, fluid, and chemical resistance. HNBR is a prudent solution to this problem faced by the automotive industry.
The global hydrogenated nitrile butadiene rubber (HNBR) market is anticipated to showcase a healthy CAGR of 8.38% over the forecast period of 2018-2023, asserts Market Research Future (MRFR) in an extensive study. The global hydrogenated nitrile butadiene rubber market is expected to catapult to USD 16,467.8 Mn by the end of 2013 from USD 10,215.8 Mn in 2017. In terms of volume, the global hydrogenated nitrile butadiene market is expected to reach 2,019.3 kilo tons by the end of 2023.

The oil & gas industry to is a significant end user of hydrogenated nitrile butadiene rubber. They are used in industrial sealing for oil field exploration and processing. HNBR enhance drilling and zone isolation to maximize well production. Surging demand of HNBR in Enhanced Oil Recovery (EOR) along with increasing offshore drilling activities are expected to augment the growth of the market. In addition, they are used as rolls for steel and paper mills, which further drives the market growth.
HNBR is highly preferred as the material for the production of industrial gloves. They protect against mechanical hazards on account of its high thermal, oil, and chemical resistance. Besides, they are also used in the production of medical gloves due to their chemical or solvent resistance. Furthermore, the introduction of the world’s first lightweight nitrile glove in 2005 extended the use of HNBR in manufacturing industrial gloves.
On the downside, the growth of the global hydrogenated nitrile butadiene rubber market might be dampened by their high price as compared to their traditional counterparts. Not only are the materials used for the production of HNBR expensive also its manufacturing involves substantial costs.
