SKU: 180350 Category: Tag:


Global styrene butadiene styrene (SBS) market was valued at USD 3531.7 million in 2016. The market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 6.97% to reach USD 5621.6 million by the end of 2023. The global SBS market accounted for 1712.0 thousand tons in 2016 and is projected to grow at volume CAGR of 5.81% during the forecast period 2017-2023. Over the decade, thermoplastic elastomers demand has witnessed rapid growth by replacing natural and synthetic rubber in a variety of applications. Thermoplastic elastomers are used in a range of products such as shoemaking, liquid seal materials, medical apparatuses, personal care products, home appliances, industrial tools and gardening tools owing to their ability to give a rubbery feel when over-molded on metal components or plastics. Innovations in the SBS, which is the part of thermoplastic elastomers, are currently focused on enhancing transparency, elasticity, and processing stability. As a result, companies have come out with innovative technologies that allow effective high-speed processing of block copolymers without losing most desired properties.

Increasing usage of styrene block copolymers in adhesives and sealants is likely to provide considerable opportunities to the industry participants. These copolymers possess properties of rubber and plastics. SBS block copolymers are used due to excellent compounding and adhesive properties. All styrene block copolymers classes exhibit diverse strengths and subsequently varied uses. SBS is soft and elastic nature with higher tack and adhesive qualities. Naturally, they find wide application scope in adhesives, sealants, and bitumen modification applications. The global adhesives & sealants market is expected to surpass USD 60 billion by 2023 with a significant CAGR of over 5%. Moreover, they are extensively used in construction and automotive industries. Such factors have driven the demand for styrene butadiene styrene in adhesives & sealants manufacturing.
