Tire and Rubber Lubricants Market: Introduction
Tire and rubber lubricants are slippery fluids used to produce products such as rubber bands, toys and tires and mount & demount tires on the rim of a wheel. Moreover, tire and rubber lubricants are used during the mixing of rubber compounds to improve the dispersion fillers and flow characteristics of the compounds during the manufacturing process of different rubber products as well as giant vehicle tires. Additionally, tire and rubber lubricants are also used as rubber or tire assembly lubricants as rubber materials are intrinsically difficult to remove, install, or otherwise manipulate even when wet. The benefits of tire and rubber lubricants as rubber assembly lubricants include reduced installation force, closer fit, improved performance, reduced damage to parts and reduced accidental conditions, among others.
Furthermore, tire and rubber lubricants exhibit adequate miscibility and excellent plasticizing properties. Attributing to these properties, tire and rubber lubricants reduce the viscosity of rubber compounds (making rubber processing easier or more efficient), enhance mechanical properties, improve the braking efficiency and fuel consumption of the automotive and improve versatile range to adjust solvency. Tire and rubber lubricants also improve the low-temperature performance of tire and rubber products.
Moreover, tire and rubber lubricants are developed taking into consideration the type of rubber and end product application. Thus, they can be categorized into different grades, i.e. aromatic, paraffinic and naphthenic.
Tire and Rubber Lubricants Market: Dynamics
The growth of the tire and rubber lubricants market can be attributed to the growing consumption of tire and rubber lubricants in the manufacturing of vehicle tires. Growth of the automotive industry across the globe has contributed to the increasing demand for rubber tires in the automotive sector.
On the other hand, tire and rubber lubricants are highly toxic and carcinogenic, due to the presence of high polynuclear aromatic compounds (PNAs) in these lubricants. This may hamper the demand for tire and rubber lubricants during the forecast period.
