U.S. Nitrile Butadiene Rubber market revenue by product, 2020 - 2030 (USD Billion)

The global per capita energy requirement is gradually increasing over the years, which is expected to portray growth opportunities for the U.S. oil & gas industry. In addition, increasing shale gas production in the country is projected to fuel the growth of the oil & gas industry. Factors such as tax credits, low-interest rates, R&D programs for natural gas, and focus on reducing the dependency on foreign oil & gas imports are propelling shale gas production in the country. All these aforementioned factors are expected to drive the oil & gas industry in the U.S., which, in turn, is projected to create significant demand for nitrile butadiene rubber in the country in the forecast period.

However, the negative impact of COVID-19 outbreaks on the growth of various industries such as oil & gas, automotive, construction, and others due to slowdown in manufacturing & production activities, restrictions in supply & transport, and decline in demand from end-use consumers is anticipated to hamper the market growth. Moreover, rising COVID-19 positive cases in the country is expected to create significant demand for nitrile butadiene rubber gloves.
