Global Styrene Butadiene Rubber (SBR) Market 2015-2019

About SBR

SBR is a synthetic rubber formed by the copolymerization of styrene and butadiene in the ratio of 3:1 by weight. SBR is manufactured through two different processes: emulsion and solution, to form emulsion-SBR and solution-SBR, respectively. It is used for various applications such as in the Tyre, Footwear, Polymer Modification, and Adhesive sectors.

TechNavio's analysts forecast the Global SBR market to grow at a CAGR of 7.36 percent over the period 2014-2019.

Covered in this Report

The Global SBR market can be segmented into two based on the type: E-SBR and S-SBR. S-SBR is widely being used because of the new tire labeling regulations and the preference toward the use of green tyres.

TechNavio's report, Global SBR Market 2015-2019, has been prepared based on an in-depth market analysis with inputs from industry experts. The report covers the APAC region, Europe, North America, and the ROW; it also covers the Global SBR market landscape and its growth prospects in the coming years.

Press Release

Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global SBR Market 2015-2019

Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the Global SBR Market: Asahi Kasei Corp., China National Petroleum Corp. (CNPC), Dynasol, Synthos SA and ZEON Corp.

Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: AG Myers Industries, American Synthetic Rubber, Ashland, Bando Chemical Industries, Bayer, Bridgestone, Chi Mei, China Synthetic Rubber, Continental, ContiTech, Cooper-Standard Automotive, Delphi, Dow, EnPro Industries, Federal-Mogul, Firestone, Freudenberg, Fujian Petrochemical Industrial Group, Goodyear, Hutchinson, Industrias Negromex, JSJ, JSR, Korfez ¬Petrochemicals & Refinery, Kumho Petrochemical, Lanxess, LG Chem, Lion Copolymer, Lukoil Neftochim ¬Burgas, Meiji Rubber & Chemical, Michelin, Mitsubishi Chemical, Mitsuboshi Belting, Nichirin, Polimeri Europa, Shandong Huamao New Materials, Sibur, Styron, Sumitomo Riko, The Yokohama Rubber, Tianjin Lugang Petroleum Rubber, Tomkins, Total Petrochemicals, Toyo Tire and Rubber, Trelleborg , YPC-GPRO (Nanjing) Rubber and Zhechen Rubber.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “Consumers worldwide are shifting toward the use of green tires, which are eco-friendly, durable, provide grip, reduce carbon emissions, and are fuel-efficient. Current vehicle engines consume more fuel with increase in friction, thereby causing more emissions. Manufacturers are now developing green tires that minimize roll resistance and increase performance.”

According to the report, increased demand for SBR in the tire sector is the primary contributor to the growth of the market. The growing number of automobiles in developing countries, along with demand for high-performance tires, is contributing to the growth of the market.

Further, the report states that fluctuating raw material costs is one of the challenges faced by the market. Price volatility of essential raw materials directly impacts the revenue and profit margins of manufacturers.
