World Butadiene Market Performance Reviewed in New TechSci Research Report Available at MarketPublishers.com

29 Jul 2015 • by Natalie Aster

LONDON – Due to high cost associated with the production of butadiene by traditional methods and recent shale gas discoveries, particularly in the USA, producers are turning to the use of lighter feedstock, like ethane and propane, for making butadiene. The synthetic rubber industry accounts for the majority of butadiene consumption, wherein it is processed for making such derivatives as styrene butadiene rubber (SBR), acrylonitrile butadiene styrene resins (ABS), polybutadiene rubber (PBR), adiponitrile, styrene butadiene latex (SB latex), and nitrile rubber (NR). These derivatives are primarily utilised in the automobile sector for the manufacture of tyres and other components.

In terms of volume, the worldwide butadiene market will likely surpass the 13 million metric tons mark by 2020-end, owing to increasing investments and the growing synthetic rubber manufacturing industry. Additionally, the rise of automotive sector, especially in APAC, is expected to give impetus to the growth of the butadiene market in the next 5 years. PBR and SBR are two main derivatives that captured the lion’s share of the overall butadiene consumption as of 2014. Lyondel Basell, Royal Dutch Shell, TPC Group, BASF and Braskem are some of the world’s top players engaged in butadiene production.
