Ceresana expected that the global market volume of SBR to increase by 2.0% per year until 2025.
Ceresana expected that the global market volume of SBR to increase by 2.0% per year until 2025.

Styrene-butadiene rubber (SBR) is the best-selling synthetic rubber and for decades, has been indispensable for many applications. In everyday life, SBR is mainly found in vehicle tires.

According to a recent market study by Ceresana, worldwide consumption for this elastomer type amounts to about 5.1 million tonnes.

More than half of global demand is generated in the region Asia-Pacific. Ceresana expect
ed that the global market volume of SBR to increase by 2.0% per year until 2025.

Elastomers have been necessary for several technical applications but also for various everyday objects in the past decades. Styrene-butadiene rubber is a copolymer consisting of the chemicals butadiene and styrene.

SBR is produced by emulsion polymerization (E-SBR) or by solution polymerization (S-SBR). E-SBR is accounting for about 72% of total demand. The smaller S-SBR market, however, is accounting for much more dynamic growth rates of 3.8% per year.

The most important sales market in 2017 was the segment tires: More than 67% of total worldwide demand was generated by tires and replacement tires.

Tires are mainly made of SBR, BR and natural rubber. E-SBR is mostly used for standard tires. In contrast, S-SBR is needed to manufacture tires with high abrasion resistance and low rolling friction.

The manufacture of industrial products is the second largest application area worldwide, consuming about 740,000 tonnes. SBR is required for a wide range of products in the individual industries from the chemical industry, mechanical engineering, the automotive industry (except for the tire sector, which is considered individually) to the electrical and electronics industry.

On the other hand, rubbers are used in, e.g., conveyor belts, roll coverings, consumer goods, hoses, profiles, gaskets, cables, adhesives, molded parts, and plastic modification.

In the construction industry, SBR is used for the production of, for example, pipes and pipe gaskets, cables, roofing films, profiles as well as for the modification of other building materials. The global demand in the segment construction industry is expected to increase by 2.0% per year from 2017 to 2025, according to Ceresana.
