Isoprene is a colorless volatile liquid obtained by thermal cracking of naphtha and other petrochemicals. Isoprene either alone or in combination with other compounds is primarily used to make polymeric materials. There has been a growing demand for isoprene from end-use industries, such as tires, non-tires, adhesives, and others.
Expansion was a key strategy adopted by major players to achieve growth in the global isoprene market between 2014 and 2016.
