Region :Global | Report ID: FBI105283 | Status : Ongoing



Polybutene-1 is also called PB-1 and polybutylene. It is a member of the polyolefin family of thermoplastic materials including polypropylene and polyethylene. The product is a linear, semi-crystalline, and highly isotactic thermoplastic. It is obtained by the polymerization of 1-butene with stereospecific catalysts. It is available in various grades which include extrusion, injection, and blow molding. Additionally, at high temperature, the polybutene-1 offers high strength and flexibility. It also provides good mechanical, creeps resistance, and heat resistance properties. This benefits makes polybutene-1 as a preferred polyolefin and surge its demand in the plumbing system, packaging system, and hot melt adhesives applications. 

The increasing demand of polybutene-1 in the packaging system will fuel the market growth. The polybutene-1 has the ability to customize sealing temperatures, it also provides high strength and superior performance properties. The product is mainly used in seal-peel or easy-open packaging of cold meats, smoked salmon, and cheeses. Moreover, the product finds its use in films, which require creep resistance for insulation compression packaging. It is also used as an overall film or layer for hot-filled heavy-duty packaging. Hence, increasing demand for the polybutene-1 in packaging system will boost the market growth.

However, fluctuation in the prices of polybutene-1 impacts overall product demand. This restricts its adoption in various applications and is anticipated to hamper the market growth.
