Quick Summary:

In the continuously evolving and demanding industries like automobiles and pharmaceuticals, a material that offers flexibility, excellent weather resistance, low gas and moisture permeability and an impressive shock absorption capacity, all in one, is an absolute game-changer. This is where butyl rubber, also known as isobutylene-isoprene rubber (IIR Rubber), shines bright, thereby marking its profound impact and consistent growth in the global market.

The indispensable role of butyl rubber in tyre manufacturing and pharmaceutical product manufacturing, amongst its many other applications, positions it at the centre of pivotal industry sectors. Its increased usage in the automotive sector in particular due to the growth in tyre composition research, along with its importance in the ever-advancing healthcare segment, have been acting as prime debouches, thereby fuelling its global demand.

Regionally, Asia Pacific continues to lead the butyl rubber market, recording substantial growth due to high demand in countries known for their tyre manufacturing prowess like South Korea, Japan, China, and India. Furthermore, the rising automotive and construction activities predict an optimistic market expansion in the future. The end-user industry-wise segmentation primarily sees the Tyre and Inner Tube sector at the helm, due to butyl rubber's excellent inflation pressure retention ability.

This comprehensive market research report provides an astute road-map for various stakeholders, offering them precise answers to critical industry-related questions, thereby aiding their decision-making process and future expansion strategies. The data, insights and forecasts included in the report have been diligently sourced and validated through primary research surveys conducted with butyl rubber manufacturers, suppliers, distributors, and wholesalers.

The global Butyl Rubber market stood at nearly 900 thousand tonnes in 2022 and is expected to grow at a steady CAGR of 4.09% during the forecast period until 2032.

Butyl Rubber is also called isobutylene-isoprene rubber (IIR Rubber) as it is manufactured by the copolymerization of isobutylene and isoprene. It is a synthetic rubber, with valuable properties such as flexibility, chemical inertness, good shock absorption, low gas and moisture permeability, excellent weather & abrasion resistance coupled with the resistance against ozone and oxygen attack. These elastomeric and significant properties of the elastomer make it a suitable material for inner tubes and vacuum or high-pressure applications under environmental conditions. Apart from inner tubes of tires and high pressure tubes, other applications of Butyl Rubbers are gaskets, diaphragms, O-rings, Seals, Liners, wires and cables, hot melts, bottle closures, caulks, etc. Butyl Rubber is widely used in adhesives and sealants as binders, modifiers, and tackifiers.

The biggest force driving the growth of the butyl rubber market is the automotive sector. This is explained due to the heavy usage of butyl rubber in tyre manufacturing by the automobile industry and the rise in interest in tyre composition research. Furthermore, Butyl rubbers also finds its use in the pharmaceutical sector for manufacturing such as rubber products, like closure, caps, stoppers, and seals for pharmaceutical bottles, blood collection tubes, injection bottles, and other infusion containers. The growing healthcare facilities and growing health awareness among population is anticipated to propel the market expansion. Owing to these factors, the Butyl Rubber market is expected to reach 1400 thousand tonnes in 2032.

Regionally, the Asia Pacific region is dominating the Butyl Rubber market followed by Europe. This region held a market share of approximately 52% in 2022. Developing countries such as South Korea, Japan, China and India are among the leading tyre manufacturers in the world, which is the reason causing high demand for butyl rubber in these countries. Growing automotive and construction activities are anticipated to bolster the market growth in future. Moreover, China is a manufacturing hub of Consumer Goods, Electronics, and automobiles which is also likely to drive the market for Butyl Rubber over the forecast period.

Based on the end-user industry, the global Butyl Rubber market is segmented into Tyre and Inner Tube, Pharmaceutical Closures, Construction, Adhesives and Sealants, and Others. Among these, the Tyre and Inner Tube sector is dominating the Butyl Rubber market and captured more than 82% of the market in 2022. Because of its low permeability in comparison to other rubbers, Butyl Rubber is used to make tyres. For commercial trucks, bicycles, industrial and speciality tyres, regular butyl rubber is often used that offers excellent inflation pressure retention. By chemically bonding the air-retaining inner liner to the tyre body, butyl rubber can create tubeless tyres that are more durable.

Major players in the production of Global Butyl Rubber are ExxonMobil, Arlanxeo (Saudi Amarco), Japan Butyl Co. Ltd, SINOPEC Beijing Yanshan Company, Formosa Synthetic Rubber Corporation, Tolyattikauchuk (SIBUR), Shandong Chambroad Petrochemicals Co., Ltd, China Petrochemical Corporation, Nizhnekamskneftekhim, Sabic & ExxonMobil JV, and Others.
