Solution Styrene Butadiene Rubber (S-SBR) Market is Expected to Reach USD 3.2 Billion in 2018: Transparency Market Research
Albany, New York (PRWEB) April 11, 2013
In terms of revenue, the market was valued at USD 1.5 billion in 2011 and is expected to grow at a CAGR of 11.27% from 2012 to 2018. One of the primary reasons for the increased S-SBR demand has been the recently implemented tire labeling regulations in the European Union and other countries such as South Korea and China. The high performance tires that are required as per the new regulations can only be manufactured by using S-SBR.
The implementation of this regulation may result in a domino effect where the remaining nations may follow suit which would further spur S-SBR demand. In addition, the growing disposable income in developing countries such as India, China and Brazil has led to substantial growth in automobile demand, which in turn boosts tire consumption.
However, fluctuating raw material costs along with environmental concerns over the manufacture of S-SBR may have an adverse effect on this market. In addition, the demand for S-SBR currently outpaces the supply, which has resulted in major companies constructing new S-SBR facilities and expanding the existing ones.

Tires were the most dominant application for S-SBR and accounted for over 79% of the overall volumes in 2011. S-SBR demand in footwear and polymer modification is expected to grow at a CAGR of 8.4% and 7.3% from 2012 to 2018 respectively. In addition, increasing middle class population coupled with increasing disposable income of the consumers in this region may drive S-SBR demand over the next few years. Increasing awareness of advantages of S-SBR over other materials in application areas such as footwear and polymer modification may positively affect the market in this region.
