Polyisobutylene (PIB) is an elastic, rubbery, semi-solid, or viscous substance. It is odorless and tasteless and is mainly used in automotive applications due to its impermeability to gases. Polyisobutylene (PIB), also called butyl rubber, is an elastomer whose structure is similar to polyethylene and polypropylene. PIB is available as viscous liquid that has a molecular weight between 10,000 and 50,000 g/mol. PIB has low gas permeability and high resistance to acids, alkalis, and salt solutions. It also has a high dielectric index and is soluble in hydrocarbons, chlorinated hydrocarbons, and ether. PIB degrades gradually under sunlight and ultraviolet rays.

The analysts forecast the global polyisobutylene market to grow at a CAGR of 4.79% during the period 2017-2021.

New Report Released: - Global Polyisobutylene Market 2017-2021

The author of the report recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global polyisobutylene market: BASF, Chevron Oronite, Daelim Industrial, INEOS, and TPC Group.

Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: Braskem, DOW Corning, HC Kothari Group, Infineum, Lubrizol, LANXESS, Proteux Global Energy, and Shandong Hongrui Petrochemical.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from the research team said: “One trend in market is use of PIB for sealing applications in PV systems. PV technologies are highly sensitive to moisture. Although the front sheet and back sheet are covered with an impermeable sheet, the moisture may diffuse through the edges. The edges should be sealed to keep the PV module dry for a lifetime of around 30 years. The use of PIB sealant of around 15 millimeters around the perimeter between the two glass films is one of the methods employed for preventing the penetration of moisture.

PIB-based materials are widely used in the PV industry due to their high stress resistance, low gas permeability, high level of flexibility, and weather resistance. These materials are used as a sealant to protect the electrical assembly in the package and moisture-sensitive PV cells from high temperatures, humidity, and UV radiation. The use of PIB-based materials in this segment is expected to grow during the forecast period, supporting the overall PIB market.”

According to the report, one driver in market is increase in demand from automotive segment. In the automotive segment, PIB is mainly used to produce components, such a tires, tubes, hosepipes, and gaskets, because of its properties such as impermeability, superior flexibility, and thermal stability. There has been an increase in the use of PIB in the tire industry due to the improved bonding and air retaining properties. Furthermore, the use of PIB in the tire and tube industry due to its improved heat retention property during tire vulcanization is expected to foster the demand. The automotive segment is expected to post high growth in the upcoming years owing to the increase in the demand from APAC. The increase in the demand can be attributed to an increase in per capita income, improvements in road infrastructure, and growth in the number of vehicles. The growing use of lubricants and fuel additives in the transportation industry will also increase the consumption of PIB.

Further, the report states that one challenge in market is fluctuating prices of raw materials. The manufacturing of PIB requires raw materials that are sourced from the oil and gas industry. Isobutane, an olefinic hydrocarbon mainly produced from the petrochemical processes, is the important raw material used for producing PIB. The fluctuations in the crude oil prices have a negative effect on the prices of the raw materials, thereby affecting the cost of PIB. In 2010, the price of Brent crude oil was around $77 per barrel, but there was an increase in the price during 2012 by nearly 41%. However, the price of crude oil per barrel decreased by nearly 60% in 2016 as compared with the previous year.

The study was conducted using an objective combination of primary and secondary information including inputs from key participants in the industry. The report contains a comprehensive market and vendor landscape in addition to a SWOT analysis of the key vendors.
