Global Polyisobutylene Market: Overview

Polyisobutylene (PIB) is a commercial polymer or elastomer that is used in a number of applications in various industries due to its thermal stability, flexibility, and impermeability to gases. Polyisobutylene an elastomer or synthetic rubber is the only rubber that is impermeable to gases, and was first developed in 1930’s. Polyisobutylene is used in the production of tubeless tires due to its ability to retain air for longer periods. Polyisobutylene is used in various other applications such as lubricants, adhesives, agricultural chemicals, caulks, sealants, paper & pulp, and chewing gum, among others. . Polyisobutylene is also used for damp proofing and maintenance of roof membranes. Rising automotive industry in developing regions such as Asia Pacific and Latin America is expected to propel the tire market during the forecast period. This is further anticipated to fuel the growth of the PIB market, owing to its use in tire manufacturing.

Medium molecular weight PIB are also primarily used to manufacture lubricants and adhesives. Demand for polyisobutylene is projected to increase significantly in the next few years considering the growth in the use of medium molecular weight PIB in the lubricants segment in various regions. Asia Pacific dominates the polyisobutylene market in terms of production and demand. Countries such as China, India, Japan, and South Korea are expected to be the key consumers of polyisobutylene. North America is the second largest consuming region. Furthermore, polyisobutylene offers chemical resistance and low permeability to air, moisture and gases. It is used in the manufacture of a range of medical packaging applications such as serum vials, injectable, saline bottles and seals. Therefore, rise in the medical industry in Latin America is also anticipated to fuel the growth of the PIB market during the forecast period. . However, rising environmental concerns owing to the recent PIB spill in Europe is anticipated to slightly hinder the growth of the PIB market during the forecast period.
