According to a recently published report about the North American nitrile butadiene rubber (NBR) market, it was equal to 68 thousand tons in 2013. The largest country market within the region was the United States, which in 2013 accounted for a share of 84% of the total in volume terms. Until 2023, the North American market is forecast to drop to around 60 thousand tons, thus declining at a CAGR of about 0.5% per annum in the period 2018-2023. This is a slight increase, compared to the drop at a CAGR of around 1.1% per year, registered in 2013-2017.
