The global polyisobutylene market is projected to reach USD 4.0 billion by 2027, at a CAGR of 6.8% from 2022 to 2027. Polyisobutylene is a polymer produced by cationic polymerization of isobutylene with C4 hydrocarbons. It is used for their high viscosity, high flash point, excellent elasticity, and durability. The use of polyisobutylene has become crucial in various end-use industries such as transportation as they exhibit low gas permeability, high electrical insulation, and increased tensile strength. Asia Pacific is the dominating PIB market. This larger market share is attributed to the high demand from end-use industries such as transportation, industrial applications, and food in the region. Growing investment in the transportation sector in the Asia Pacific region is one of the major reasons behind the growing consumption in the region.
Companies operating in the polyisobutylene market have strengthened their position in the global polyisobutylene market by adopting expansions, partnerships, agreements, new product/technology launches, joint ventures, contracts, and mergers & acquisitions from 2018-2022. However, the novel coronavirus pandemic has created ripples across the global automotive & transportation, industrial, and many other sectors, affecting the global supply chains. These factors have affected the demand for polyisobutylene. The demand is expected to recover bounce and picking up momentum by 2022.
