Neoprene is a synthetic rubber product manufactured by polymerization of chloroprene and it is also known as polychloroprene. Neoprene is resistant to oil-water and solvents and possess good chemical stability and remains flexible over a wide range of temperature. Neoprene has a low oxidation rate and ozone resistance which makes neoprene products durable. It possesses high tensile strength which makes them suitable to use in vibrating mounts, transmission belts, shock absorbers seals, anchor components, and bridge seals. It is widely used in diving suits, sports gear, life jackets, knee and elbow pads, sports gloves, and bicycle seats. Neoprene is used in an array of applications such as medical, automotive building and construction, aquatic, and electronics.

In June 2018, Subsea Supplies announced that they have received license from Eaton so that they can start using their Burton Subsea Product Line. Now, they can start the production of connector assemblies and Burton cable. With this, they will provide better services and products to their customer.
Global Neoprene Market: Segments
Neoprene rubber sheet segment to grow with the highest CAGR during 2020-30
Global Neoprene market is segmented by product into Neoprene Sponge/Foam, Neoprene Rubber Sheet, and Neoprene Latex. The Neoprene Rubber Sheet segment held the largest market share of XX.X% in the year 2019. Neoprene Rubber Sheets are widely used in building insulations, gaskets, seals, and liners in electrical, construction, and automotive industries owing to their exceptional properties including abrasion resistance, low compression set, and resistance to ozone and ultraviolet radiations.
Automotive segment to grow with the highest CAGR during 2020-30
Global Neoprene market is divided by application into Automotive, Electrical, and Electronics, Building and Construction, Consumer Goods, Medical and Others. Automotive segment held the largest market share of XX.X% in the year 2019 and will continue to dominate the market in the coming years due to its tensile strength, thermal resistance, and durability. Neoprene is utilized in a wide array of products in automotive such as oil and fuel and molded parts like membranes, dampers, axle boots, and windshield wipers.
Growing application of neoprene in automobiles
Surge in automobile production due to the inflating disposable income is estimated to fuel the demand for neoprene. Neoprene finds its application in the automotive industry to manufacture tires, CVJ boots, vibration mounts, hose covers, oil seals, steering and braking system, and power transmission belts. Furthermore, neoprene seat covers provide protection against dirt, scratches, and moisture. Since neoprene is resistant to temperature it can shield leather seats from the damaging effects of sunlight.
Boom in construction activities
With the rising urbanization and increasing population, there is a rapid growth in the number of building and construction activities which is projected to drive the growth of the market. Neoprene is employed in the construction industry for electrical wiring, fireproof insulation, and expansion joints in civil engineering applications. Additionally, it is used in cable coverings, window gaskets, and roof waterproofing membranes owing to superior durability, resilience, and waterproofing properties.
Fluctuating prices of raw material
Neoprene is a synthetic rubber that is produced by petroleum feedstock. Hence the fluctuations in the price of crude oil may restrict the growth of the market in the coming years. Besides, the availability of substitutes like silicone rubber is likely to hamper the neoprene market.
