The global styrene ethylene butylene styrene (SEBS) market has been estimated at USD XX.XX billion in 2016 and is projected to reach USD XX.XX billion by 2021, growing at a CAGR of X.XX% during the forecast period, 2016 to 2021.

Styrene ethylene butylene styrene, also known as SEBS, is a form of thermoplastics elastomer with added styrene. SEBS is a hydrogenated elastomer having properties such as high-strength, good temperature resistance, and flexibility. There are other added advantages such as UV and ozone-resistance, high dispersibility, thermo-oxidative stability, excellent processing capabilities, wide tackifiers compatibility, high oil absorption capability, and stability in high-temperature processing, which enable SEBS for multiple applications in various end-use industries. SEBS is used as a potential substitution for PVC in toy manufacturing.

Market Dynamics

The growing demand for SEBS from adhesive & sealant and coating applications is anticipated to drive the SEBS market in the future. SEBS is creating its space in plastic industry as a potential replacement for PVC in various applications and is the major driving force for the global SEBS market in the future. However, environmental restrictions over production of SEBS is likely to counter the growth of SEBS in the global market.

Market Segmentation

The styrene ethylene butylene styrene market is segmented into two types - form and end-use industry. The form segment is further divided into pallets and powders, based on their production process. Powder is the largest available form in the global SEBS market, due to its application flexibility. Application of SEBS in the construction and adhesives industries is propelling the demand for powdered form of SEBS, for easier application.

The market has been geographically segmented into Asia-Pacific, North America, Europe, South America, and the Middle East & Africa. Asia-Pacific is the largest consumer of synthetic rubber. The region is under huge demand for infrastructure development in several countries. Countries such as China and India are enjoying the low-cost labor advantage in the automotive and construction industries, which account for most of the consumption of SEBS. Reconstruction activity is gaining pace in developed economies, which is anticipated to drive the SEBS demand in the global market.

Opportunities and Major Players

SEBS is similar to natural rubber and is less hazardous compared to its counterparts. FDA and BGW approvals for application of SEBS can create a growth opportunity for the product in the global market. Some of the major companies dominating this market for its products, services, and continuous product development, include:

Kraton Polymers
LCY Chemical Corp.
Dynasol Elastomers
Ningbo Keyuan Petrochemicals
