Butadiene Market 2
Butadiene Market 2

The global Butadiene market is expected to demonstrate the growth of ~4% during the forecast period (2021-2027). Butadiene is an important primary raw material in the manufacturing of synthetic rubbers. Rubbers including SBR, SBS, and butadiene rubber are some of the commonly used synthetic rubber in which butadiene constitute a major portion. The aforementioned rubbers are widely utilized in the manufacturing of several products like shoe soles, tires, and other parts for the car industry, adhesives and sealants, asphalt and polymer modification and compounds for endless purposes. Therefore, with increasing demand for such products demand of butadiene eventually increases to support and suffice the requirement of growing end use industry.

However, industry witnessed severe challenges in 2020 due to COVID-19, resulted in the decline demand from rubber manufacturing industry. For instance, in 2019, the global original equipment manufacture passenger car and light truck tire market was stood around 422 million units which fell to 351 million unit in 2020. The most severe impact had witnessed in South American region where demand dropped by 31% in 2020. This fall in tire sales, reduced the demand of synthetic rubber, so does the butadiene.

Insights Presented in the Report

“Amongst application, SBR held prominent share in the market in 2020.”

Based on application, the market is categorized into butadiene rubber, SBR, ABS, SB latex, NBR, and others. Among these, SBR held the prominent share in the global Butadiene market. SBR is widely use in tire industry as it is better suited to meet the increasingly stringent specifications of high-performance tires. Further, in automotive industry SBR founds application in belt, hoses, gasket. Therefore, growth in tire industry and replacement of automotive components are some of the key factors for its considerable position in the market.

“Large base of manufacturing industries propels the demand of butadiene in the APAC region”

For a better understanding of the market adoption of Butadiene, the market is analyzed based on its worldwide presence in the countries such as North America (United States, Canada, Rest of North America), Europe (Germany, UK, France, Spain, and Rest of Europe), Asia-Pacific (China, Japan, India, Australia, and Rest of APAC), and Rest of World.  Asia-Pacific held the prominent position in the global Butadiene market owing to its large tire manufacturing industry and largest automobile production base across the globe. For instance, tire manufacturers like Bridgestone, Yokohama, Kumho, Hankook, Triangle, Apollo, and MRF are among the largest producer of tire, globally. Further, the regional is the largest producer footwear in the world, with country like China, Vietnam, Indonesia, and India has considerable market share. Therefore, region has large number of synthetic rubber manufacturing facilities in order to make a strong supply chain and take advantage of lower manufacturing cost. As a result, high consumption of butadiene by these facilities.
