The styrene butadiene rubber market is expected to register a CAGR of nearly 5% during the forecast period, 20182023. The major factor driving the market growth is the growing demand in the automotive industry for high performance tires. In addition, rising demand in the emerging economies is also pushing the growth of the market.
Automotive Industry Driving the Market
The growing demand for highperformance tires from the automotive industry is likely to boost the tire manufacturing industries' demand for higher specification raw materials. Also, high fuelefficiency in automotive is creating the demand for low rolling resistance in tires, which is expected to drive the demand for SBR in the tire industry.
AsiaPacific Region Dominating the Market Share
AsiaPacific is the largest consumer of synthetic rubber, where SBR accounts for nearly a 45% share, by volume. Countries, such as China and India, are enjoying the lowcost labor advantage in the automotive manufacturing industry, which accounts for most of the consumption of SBR, and is expected to witness a CAGR of around 14%. In addition, growing demand for adhesives in these countries is also driving the studied market in AsiaPacific.
Solution SBR a Potential Segment
The styrene butadiene rubber market is segmented based on product type and application. The product type segmentation is further divided into emulsion SBR and solution SBR, based on their production process. Emulsion SBR is the largest product segment in the global SBR market due to the low cost of production. However, changing demand from the consumers for highperformance tires is increasing the popularity of the solution SBR in the global market, due to its low rolling resistance property. The market is further segmented into footwear, construction, polymer modification, adhesives, and others, as per their applications.
