There is a substantial demand for the product in Malaysia and China owing to high rate of medical glove and condom production in these countries. The North America isoprene rubber latex industry growth rate will exceed a 6 percent CAGR during the study period.

Condoms, medical gloves, medical balloons and catheters, and adhesives are the key application segments in the isoprene rubber latex market. The medical glove segment will dominate the overall IRL industry over the forecast years. 


The product's high clarity and purity have been the main reasons behind their usage for this application. Condoms are another key application for the product, and this segment will witness gains above a 6 percent CAGR in the forecast years. Medical end-use accounted for a significant share of the IRL market, with revenues in 2017 exceeding $150 million.
