This report considers the impact of COVID-19. In 2020, the growth rate of every industry around the world was impacted by the pandemic. The presently developing COVID-19 pandemic has currently halted the progress of every economy. In addition to taking measures to lock down their respective countries to contain the spread of the coronavirus, especially in affected cities, various governments around the world are also taking the measures necessary to contain the economic slowdown.
The synthetic rubber market is further segmented based on its types: styrene-butadiene rubber (SBR), Ethylene propylene diene rubber (EPDM), polybutadiene rubber (BR), polyisoprene (IR), nitrile butadiene rubber (NBR) and others. The market is also segmented into applications like tires, industrial, non-tire automotive, footwear and others.

Synthetic rubber is widely used in the automotive industry to produce tires and other rubber components in cars, busses, trucks, etc. There has been a surge in new vehicle production and consumption in developing countries like China and India, and in many Southeast Asian countries.
Companies like Bridgestone Group, Michelin, Goodyear and Continental are among those which have taken initiatives to end the use of fossil fuels in tire manufacturing and produce tires completely from sustainable materials.
At the end of 2016, the capacity in non-China Asia-Pacific exceeded China, as a majority of the expansions and new projects were from the rest of the Asia-Pacific region.
Overcapacity is one of the biggest challenges facing the global synthetic rubber industry, with one of the major reasons being over-investment in China during the past few years. Due to overcapacity, many manufacturers are forced to work with reduced or low operating rates, and a few have also delayed expansion projects.
In 2020, the automotive industry was severely hampered as manufacturing facilities were shut down and production came to standstill due to COVID-19. This resulted in a negative impact on growth rates in several countries. Some tire and synthetic rubber manufacturers decreased their production capacity or shut down a few of their facilities temporarily. Many global car manufacturers reduced their production in the first quarter of 2020 because of a lack of components from China. On the other hand, demand for synthetic rubber for glove production increased during the pandemic.
