Press Release

Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Polybutadiene Rubber Market 2018-2022

Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global polybutadiene rubber market: JSR, KUMHO PETROCHEMICAL, LANXESS, SIBUR, and Versalis.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “One trend in the market is rising demand for bio-based feedstock. The use of bio-based feedstock in the production of synthetic rubber is one of the rising trends. The development of renewable chemicals for the production of rubber is growing rapidly on the grounds of achieving sustainability.”

According to the report, one driver in the market is increasing demand from the automotive industry. The automotive industry is one of the key end-user industries of BR. The automotive sector in the BR market contributes to the market with the maximum share, in terms of consumption. It is used in the industry for the production of tires.

Further, the report states that one challenge in the market is fluctuation in the prices of raw materials. Consistent price fluctuations of raw materials used in the production of BR poses a challenge to the manufacturers of BR. BR is a polymer that is synthesized by the polymerization of the monomer 1, 3-butadiene, the prices of which have an impact on that of BR. Butadiene is entirely derived as a by-product of ethylene steam cracking of gas oil or naphtha feedstocks.
