Global Polyisobutylene Market Induced by Flourishing Transportation Industry

Global Polyisobutylene Market Induced by Flourishing Transportation Industry
The global polyisobutylene market has been witnessing a positive growth. This is due to the rising R&D investments along with the rapid increase in the demand of lubricants, tires and tubes across various nations.

The latest report by IMARC Group, titled “Polyisobutylene Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2017-2022”, finds that the global polyisobutylene market has reached a value of more than US$ 2 Billion in 2016. Polyisobutylene or butyl rubber is a polymer of isobutylene which is produced from monomer isobutylene by using cationic vinyl polymerization. It appears as an elastic rubbery viscous or semi-solid substance which is tasteless, odourless and colourless. Some of the other properties of polyisobutylene include ozone resistance, biocompatibility, high heat and damping, weathering resistance and flexibility. Apart from this, it is also gas impermeable as it can hold air for a longer period of time.

Highlights of the global polyisobutylene market:

  • Increase in demand for tires and tubes globally acts as a major growth-inducing factor.
  • Transportation represents the largest end-use industry.
  • Europe dominates the market, holding the majority of the market share.

A strong growth in the transportation industry along with a rapid rise in the demand for tires and tubes across the globe acts as a major factor that is positively driving the growth of the global polyisobutylene market. The growth has also been influenced by increasing demand for lubricants on account of deposit control property of polyisobutylene. Moreover, other factors that are expected to contribute towards the growth include technological advancements, expanding R&D investments and increasing usage of polyisobutylene in the production of tubeless tires. However, strict rules and regulations by governments across nations along with rising consumer awareness about environment protection may act as a hindrance towards the growth of the market. Looking forward, the global polyisobutylene market is projected to reach a value of more than US$ 3 Billion during 2017-2022.
