June 11, 2020

According to the research report titled ‘Nitrile Butadiene Rubber (NBR) Latex Market Size by Application By End-user Industry, Industry Analysis Report, Regional Outlook, Application Potential, Price Trends, Competitive Market Share & Forecast, 2020 – 2026’, available with Market Study Report LLC, the global nitrile butadiene rubber (NBR) latex market is expected to record considerable growth during 2020-2026.

The spike in usage of the product in industrial, medical and food sector along with the technological advancements in consort with the outbreak of COVID-19 pandemic are projected to have a positive impact on the NBR latex market.

For the record, NBR or Nitrile is a type of synthetic rubber polymer made up of an amalgamation of acrylonitrile and butadiene molecules and is used across a plethora of applications. Butadiene present in nitrile gloves makes them flexible and tear resistant, while the acrylonitrile improves its chemical resistance.

Nitrile butadiene rubber latex is a synthetic latex having a milky texture and a liquid form along with an excellent tensile strength and resistance for oil, which is used for immersing rubber for medical and laboratory gloves. According to the FDA, the gloves should be used for a single task at a time, either to work with ready to eat food or raw animal food, but not both and must be discarded once damaged or stained.
