The global market size of polybutadiene is estimated to reach USD 12.71 Billion by 2022, at a CAGR of 5.3% from 2017 to 2022, in terms of value. The base year considered for the study is 2016, while the forecast period is between 2017 and 2022. The polybutadiene market is driven by the increasing demand from the automotive industry and growth in rubber industry.

Objectives of the Study:

  • To analyze and forecast the market size of polybutadiene, in terms of volume and value
  • To identify significant market trends and factors driving or inhibiting the growth of the global polybutadiene market and its submarkets
  • To define, describe, and forecast the polybutadiene market by type, application, and region
  • To forecast the market size for five regions—Asia-Pacific, Europe, North America, Middle East & Africa, and South America and the key countries in each region
  • To strategically analyze each submarket with respect to individual growth trends and their contribution to the market
  • To analyze opportunities in the market for stakeholders by identifying high-growth segments of the market
  • To analyze competitive developments, such as expansions, joint ventures, new products launches, and acquisitions in the polybutadiene market
  • To strategically profile the key market players and comprehensively analyze their core competencies

Both, top-down and bottom-up approaches have been used to estimate and validate the size of the global polybutadiene market and to estimate the size of various other dependent submarkets. The research study involved the use of extensive secondary sources, directories, and databases such as Hoovers, Bloomberg, Chemical Weekly, Factiva, Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organization (CSIRO), Securities And Exchange Commission (SEC), American National Standards Institute (ANSI), Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD), and other government and private websites to identify and collect information useful for the technical, market-oriented, and commercial study of the polybutadiene market.

The global polybutadiene market is estimated to reach USD 12.71 Billion by 2022, at a CAGR of 5.3% from 2017 to 2022. The polybutadiene market has witnessed significant growth in the recent years. Polybutadiene, due to their properties, such as toughness, excellent abrasion resistance, cold resistance, high tensile strength, high resilience, low rolling resistance, low glass transition, and hot tear strength, are used in a wide range of applications, including tire, polymer modification, industrial rubber manufacturing, chemicals, and others.

The main types of polybutadiene are solid polybutadiene rubber and liquid polybutadiene rubber. The solid polybutadiene rubber segment is estimated to lead the polybutadiene market during the forecast period, due to its suitability in several applications such as tires and plastics. Solid polybutadiene is further divided into high cis, low cis, high trans, and high vinyl polybutadiene. High cis is extensively used in the automotive industry, due to its properties such as toughness, high abrasion resistance, high rolling resistance, and less susceptibility to cracking. The high cis content in polybutadiene also provides better green strength and high cut growth resistance.

The tire application segment is estimated to lead the polybutadiene market, and it is also projected to witness the highest growth during the forecast period, owing to the growth of the automotive industry.

North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Middle East & Africa, and South America are considered the key markets for polybutadiene in the report. Asia Pacific is estimated to dominate the polybutadiene market, owing to the rising demand for polybutadiene driven by its increased use in end-use industries. Europe is the second-largest consumer of polybutadiene, globally. The market in this region is mainly driven by the growth in the automotive industry.

Polybutadiene Market

The polybutadiene market is expected to witness significant growth in the coming years. However, factors such as fluctuations in raw material prices and stringent regulations may hinder the growth of the market.

Kumho Petrochemical Co. Ltd. (South Korea), Reliance Industries Ltd (India), JSR Corporation (Japan), LANXESS AG (Germany), Kuraray Co. Ltd. (Japan), UBE Industries Ltd. (Japan), SABIC (Saudi Arabia), LG Chem ltd. (South Korea), Versalis S.p.A. (Italy), Sinopec (China), PJSC SIBUR Holdings (Russia), and Total Cray Valley (US) are the key companies operating in the polybutadiene market. These companies adopted strategies such as expansions, mergers, joint ventures, agreements, and new product developments to expand their market share and distribution network in the polybutadiene market.
