Performance vs. Cost: Demand Trends in Synthetic Latex Polymers

The market of synthetic latex polymers assumes a unique set of characteristics in every geography, from performance of the economy, purchasing power of the population, and industrialization to demand patterns, competition from alternate technologies, and performance of the polymers in specific end uses.

North America and China both represent the largest markets of synthetic latex polymers by volume, each accounting for an approximate 25% share of global consumption. Meanwhile, India, which has a much smaller share of around 5% of global consumption, is the fastest-growing market for synthetic latex polymers in the world. It is these three key geographical markets of North America, China, and India that Kline studies in depth this year in its continuous Synthetic Latex Polymers Global Series: Business Analysis and Opportunities program.Continue reading

High-performance Materials in Europe and the Rise of Manufacturing Industries in CIS Drive the Consumption of Synthetic Latex Polymers

Amounting to nearly USD 33 billion, the global synthetic latex polymers market is shaped by diverse regional characteristics, according to Synthetic Latex Polymers: Global Business Analysis and Opportunities program.

Europe and CIS together account for a total 20.4% of the global synthetic latex polymers market in 2017. Although the consumption of synthetic latex polymers in CIS is significantly lower than in Europe, the CIS region offers higher growth potential. Import substitution programs implemented by the Russian government, along with the focus of other CIS countries to develop manufacturing capabilities, will offer various business opportunities for synthetic latex polymer suppliers through 2022.Continue reading

Synthetic Latex Polymers Market in the Middle East

Middle East Synthetic Latex Polymers Market: A Unique Mix of Trends and Opportunities

The Middle East accounts for approximately 5% of the global consumption of synthetic latex polymers, with a market value of about USD 1.3 billion in 2016. This region represents an interesting mix of diverse economies, displaying a combination of varying market characteristics, ranging from the advanced Turkish market, which closely follows European trends, to the highly price-sensitive Egyptian market.

Like in most regions, except Southeast Asia, paints and coatings and adhesives and sealants are the largest application sectors in the Middle East. However, the region exhibits some striking differences in the application mix.Continue reading
