Styrene-Butadiene Rubber Market Analysis by Size, Share, Growth, Trends and Forecast 2028

The increase in the application of synthetic rubbers and polymers in several end-use industries are expected to drive the market.


The increase in the application of synthetic rubbers and polymers in several end-use industries are expected to drive the market.

The global Styrene-Butadiene Rubber market is forecast to reach USD 24.26 billion by 2028, according to a new report by Reports and Data. Global Styrene-Butadiene Rubber market is expected to grow due to the ever-growing automotive industry. It is a colorless organic compound with an aromatic gasoline-like odor.

Styrene-Butadiene Rubber is produced as a byproduct of ethylene steam cracking of naptha feedstock. It is also used as a chemical intermediate and as a monomer for the manufacture of plastics and rubber and is applicable in several consumer and industrial products, such as construction, automobile, electronics, packaging, protective clothing, and appliance parts.

The growing interest of the green tires that are manufactured from synthetic rubber is derived from bio-Styrene-Butadiene Rubber. A major share of bio-Styrene-Butadiene Rubber is consumed in the production of synthetic rubber and coatings that are used in the manufacture of automotive accessories and tires. Factors such as increasing use of rubber substitutes, like guayule or rice husk, and manufacture of new version of rubber are hindering the market growth.

Further key findings from the report suggest

Acrylonitrile Styrene-Butadiene Rubber styrene (ABS) is a sturdy engineering thermoplastic and amorphous polymer that is used in the production of lightweight, rigid, and molded products which are used in a diverse set of end-use applications.

ABS is usually used to manufacture protective housing for power tools and plastic face guards for a wall socket. It is also commonly used in the automotive industry for manufacturing of items including plastic alloys and decorative interior car parts. In the construction industry, this polymer finds application in the production of plastic tubing and corrugated plastic structures. 

In developed regions such as Japan, the United States, and Western Europe, Styrene-Butadiene Rubber is produced as a byproduct of the steam cracking process used to manufacture ethylene and other alkenes. The amount of Styrene-Butadiene Rubber produced in C4 hydrocarbon extraction process depends on the hydrocarbons used as feed. Ethane, a light feed, give ethylene when cracked, but heavier feeds produced heavier Styrene-Butadiene Rubber.

Asia Pacific has the highest growth rate during the study, and it is expected that it would dominate the growth-share. Credit for this goes to the rapid development of the economies. China has invested heavily in research and development and in the expansion of production capacity. Growing automotive industry in Indonesia and Thailand, along with increasing construction activities mainly in India, China, and Indonesia, is anticipated to create growth opportunities in the region.
