The Global Styrene Butadiene Rubber (Sbr) Market Has Reached Approximately 5100 Thousand Tonnes in 2021 and is Expected to Grow at a CAGR of 3.97% During the Forecast Period Until 2035

The global Styrene Butadiene Rubber (SBR) market has reached approximately 5100 thousand tonnes in 2021 and is expected to grow at a CAGR of 3.97% during the forecast period until 2035. Styrene-butadiene rubber (SBR) is currently the most widely used elastomer among all the synthetic rubbers produced globally. Rising SBR demand for manufacturing tyres for Heavy Commercial Vehicles (HCVs), Light Commercial vehicle (LCVs), passenger cars, belting conveyors and molded goods would propel the demand for SBR in the forecast period.

Styrene Butadiene Rubber (SBR) is the most common synthetic rubber manufactured by copolymerizing butadiene (75%) and styrene (25%) with the support of free radical initiators. Currently, the emulsion polymerization process produces the majority of SBR in the globe. SBR displays properties like resistance to dilute acids and bases, crack-resistance, heat resistance, high durability, and adhesion to metal. It is primarily employed for manufacturing tires. Other niche applications include carpets, footwear, coatings, heels of women's footwear, adhesives, and vehicle parts. SBR is also blended with natural rubber for manufacturing pressure-sensitive adhesives (PSAs) used for masking tapes, labels, cloth tapes, and duct tapes.

Unlike natural rubber, SBR tends to harden with age instead of softening, due to the increased interlinking of polymer chains due to oxidation. These restraining factors of natural rubber have paved the way for increased SBR consumption for tire manufacturing since the past few years. The primary driver of the Styrene Butadiene Rubber (SBR) global market is the Tires Industry. In 2021, approximately 84% of global Styrene Butadiene Rubber (SBR) was utilized by this industry. SBR has advantages such as high durability, resistance to cracking, high-temperature resistance, and wear resistance. Due to these reasons, SBR is employed for manufacturing tires. Footwear industry accounts for a much smaller share in the overall SBR market but stimulates the market growth due to rising demand for strong grip athletic shoes. The global Styrene Butadiene Rubber (SBR) market is anticipated to reach about 9000 thousand tonnes by 2035.

Based on type, the Styrene Butadiene Rubber (SBR) market is segregated into Emulsion Styrene Butadiene Rubber and Solution Styrene Butadiene Rubber. The Emulsion Styrene Butadiene Rubber has a higher demand than the other type. In 2021, Emulsion Styrene Butadiene Rubber estimated roughly 57% of the global SBR market.

Based on demand, the Asia Pacific dominates the Styrene Butadiene Rubber (SBR) market with an incredible market share of greater than 40% of the global Styrene Butadiene Rubber (SBR). Additionally, the region is the world's biggest user of SBR tires and adhesives. APAC is the leading producer of SBR and accounted about 38% of the global Styrene Butadiene Rubber (SBR) in 2021. Furthermore, APAC has planned to expand the current SBR facilities and add huge plant capabilities to meet the growing demands of SBR in the forecast period. Currently, South Korea is leading as the producer of SBR.

Based on the end-user industry, the global Styrene Butadiene Rubber (SBR) market is segmented into Tires, Conveyor Belt, Shoe Sole, and Others. The Tires Industry is the largest consumer of the Styrene Butadiene Rubber (SBR) market due to its remarkable properties. Rising demand from other segments such as Conveyor Belt and Shoe Sole industry would further help to bolster demand for SBR in the forecast period.

Major players in the production of Global Styrene Butadiene Rubber (SBR) are Korea Kumho Petrochemical, PetroChina Company Limited, Synthos Group, Goodyear Tire and Rubber, Groupo Dynasol, Trinseo, JSR Corporation, TSRC Corporation, Sinopec Qilu petrochemicals, Bridgestone Corporation, LANXESS AG, Versalis, Lion Copolymer, and Shenhua Chemical Industrial.
