Isoprene Market Size, Share & Industry Analysis, By Type (Chemical Grade, Polymer Grade), By Application (Polyisoprene, Styrene Isoprene Styrene, Isobutylene Isoprene Rubber, Others) And Regional Forecast, 2024-2032

Region : Global | Report ID: FBI104545 | Status : Ongoing



Isoprene, also known 2-methyl 1,3 butadiene is an unsaturated hydrocarbon. When in pure form, it is a colorless volatile liquid. It is produced and emitted by plants and trees. It is an important C5 diolefin isoprene and is synthetically produced by thermal cracking of naptha oil and as a byproduct of ethylene production process. The most of the industrially synthesized isoprene is further used to produce polyisoprene which is the synthetic version of natural rubber.

Increasing demand for polyisoprene is one of the key factor driving the market for isoprene. It has similar properties that of natural rubber. Higher consistency in terms of strength, mixing, processing, cure rate, and molding as compared to natural rubber is expected to boost the market growth. Additionally, growing demand for isoprene to manufacture Styrene Isoprene Styrene (SIS) and Isobutylene Isoprene Rubber (IIR) is expected to significantly boost the market.

However, rubber manufacturing facilities discharge Hazardous Air Pollutants (HAP) which are harmful for environmental and human health. stringent environmental rules regarding the emission of such harmful pollutants is expected to act as limitation for market.

Key Market Driver -

Increasing demand for polyisoprene.

Key Market Restraint -

Stringent environmental regulations.
