“Polybutadiene Rubber (BR): 2011 World Market Outlook And Forecast” Published by MarketPublishers.com15 Sep 2011 • by Natalie Aster
LONDON – Polybutadiene (BR) is the second largest volume synthetic rubber produced, next to styrene-butadiene rubber (SBR). The major use of BR is in tires with over 70% of the polymer produced going into treads and sidewalls. BR also has a major application as an impact modifier for polystyrene and acrylonitrile-butadiene-styrene resin (ABS) with about 25% of the total volume going into these applications. Typically about 7% BR is added to the polymerization process to make these rubber-toughened resins. Also, about 20,000 metric tons worldwide of “high cis” polybutadiene is used each year in golf ball cores due to its outstanding resiliency.
Polybutadiene is and will continue to be a high volume rubber for use in tires, toughened plastics, and golf balls due to its low cost, availability and unique properties. As new markets develop, there will be a need to develop new, higher performance grades of BR using both the alkyllithium and Ziegler systems.
The new research report “Polybutadiene Rubber (BR): 2011 World Market Outlook And Forecast” prepared by Merchant Research & Consulting, Ltd gives true insights into the global and regional polybutadiene rubber markets, covering valuable data on polybutadiene rubber capacities, production, consumption, trade statistics, and prices. A host of information on polybutadiene rubber producers and suppliers is also included. Furthermore, the study is supplemented with five-year forecasts, including market volumes and prices.
