Chloroprene Rubber Price Trend for the First Half of 2022


The price trends for chloroprene rubber, commonly known as neoprene, remained strong throughout the first half of 2022. The inflated costs of feedstock butadiene and the soaring transport costs due to the resurgence of covid cases in China kept the rubber prices high. The prices of butadiene averaged around 11000 RMB/MT in North China. In June, the price of neoprene-Guangdong CR121 averaged 43250 RMB/MT.


The crude oil prices soared to an unprecedented level due to the Russia-Ukraine confrontation, triggering an economic backlash in Europe and giving rise to double-digit inflation. The price of feedstock Butadiene averaged around 1350 USD/MT FD Hamburg. With the high feedstock prices and strong pricing globally, the prices of chloroprene rubber increased by 7.3%.

North America

The prices of chloroprene rubber soared throughout the first half of the said year owing to the inflated prices, supply shortages, lack of skilled labour and robust demand from rubber and automotive industries. The price trends of chloroprene rubber recorded a hike of 4.5% ( approx.) during the said period.

Chloroprene Rubber (CR) is a synthetic rubber that is also known as Neoprene.  The properties of CR are well-balanced and include good chemical stability and utility over a broad temperature range. It exhibits good resistance to ozone cracking, heat ageing, and chemical attack because of its low reactivity. For instance, it has only moderate or poor resistance to acids, solvents, and fuels, but good resistance to many chlorofluorocarbons, aliphatic hydrocarbons, mineral oils, greases, and ozone.

Production Processes:

  • Production of Chloroprene Rubber from Butadiene and Chlorine; from Chloroprene, Water and Sulphur

A butadiene chlorination in the vapour phase is followed by the polymerization of a free-radical emulsion in the integrated process. First, 1,4-dichloro-2-butene and 3,4-dichloro-1-butene are formed by chlorinating butadiene. After that, 3,4-dichloro-1-butene isomers are produced from the 1,4-dichloro-2-butene isomers, which are then further dehydrochlorinated. Caustic soda facilitates the dehydrochlorination, which results in the production of sodium chloride and chloroprene. Chloroprene rubber is the end result of the polymerization process that the produced chloroprene goes through.
