Global butyl rubber market is expected to rise at a higher CAGR in upcoming years. Butyl rubber is also known as Isobutylene-isoprene rubber, which is a synthetic rubber formed by copolymerizing isobutylene with less volumes of isoprene. Butyl rubber is essentially appreciated for its impassability to gases, chemical floppiness and impermeability to gases. Butyl rubber is a synthetic rubber or polymer and owns unique physical and chemical possessions. Butyl rubber is denoted as IIR in contraction which stands for isobutylene isoprene rubber. Butyl rubber is a copolymer of isobutylene with isoprene.
The industrial process of butyl rubber includes the proportion of isoprene which is very less associated to isobutylene. Butyl rubber is used in tires, sealants, and adhesives. Unique qualities of butyl rubber include high flexibility, air tight, gas impermeability, good vibration damper, biocompatibility, good weathering, heat and chemical resistance.However, fluctuating raw material prices and availability of substitutes may confine the market growth.
Poly-isobutylene, also known as "PIB" or polyisobutene, (C4H8) n, is the homopolymerize of isobutylene, or 2-methyl-1-propene, on which butyl rubber is based. Butyl rubber is shaped by polymerization of about 98% of isobutylene with about 2% of isoprene. Mechanically, polyisobutylene resembles polypropylene, consuming two methyl groups relieved on every other carbon atom. Polyisobutylene is a colorless to light yellow viscoelastic material. It is commonly odorless and tasteless, though it may exhibit a slight characteristic odor.
Growth in demand for tires and tubes and other products in automotive industries will increase the butyl rubber market. Furthermore, upsurge in demand for materials such as sealants, medical stoppersin pharmaceutical industry is also expected to boost the butyl rubber market. Butyl rubber is expected to exhibit a significant growth over the forecast period owing to its superior properties counting exceptional confrontation to chemical, ozone and weather. However,originallyindustrialized for tire applications, butyl rubber is progressively being used in other sectors such as healthcare, consumer products and adhesives.
The mounting demand for butyl rubber for damp proofing and roof repairing is expected to fuel the growth of this market in the coming years. In addition, the use of food grade butyl rubber in food applications is expected to propel the market demand. Butyl Rubber Market is segmented by product as Slurry Method, Solution Method. Based on applications, the global market is segmented into Tires, Medical Materials and Constructions. Additional, growing request for butyl rubber for roof sewing and damp proofing and application of food grade butyl rubber as a mastication base are further predicted to kindle the growth of butyl rubber in coming years.
Butyl Rubber Market geographically spans North America, Europe, China, Japan, Southeast Asia, India. In Asia-Pacific market, China is expected to observerasignificant growth over the coming foreseeable years.The global synthetic rubber production is mounting at a healthy CAGR in the global market. The growth of the market is higher in Asia Pacific region account of mounting demand from the automobile and construction industry.Some of other important consumers of butyl rubber in the district include Malaysia, Vietnam, Hong Kong, Macau, Indonesia, Australia and Republic of Korea. North America and Europe will display moderate growth as the butyl rubber is significantly used for several applications.
