Polyisobutylene Market Size, Share & Industry Analysis, By Product Type (Low Molecular Weight, Medium Molecular Weight, High Molecular Weight), By Application (Automotive, Additive, Others) And Regional Forecast 2023-2030

Region : Global | Report ID: FBI104577 | Status : Ongoing



Polyisobutylene is a class of organic polymers that are manufactured by polymerizing isobutylene. They usually occur as gummy solids and the application of the polymer depends upon the molecular weight of the polymer. Polymer with low MW, a mixture of oligomers with 500 Mns is used as plasticizer while with greater Mns like >20000 are constituents of adhesives.

Increasing importance of isobutylene in tire industry for production of tubes and tires is expected to drive the market growth. Enhanced properties of polyisobutylene like impermeability to gases and moisture is one of the major factor influencing the demand for polyisobutylene. Increasing scope of applications like adhesives, sealants, additives, pharmaceutical stoppers, hosepipes and others shall fuel the market growth.

However, presence of other enhanced alternatives in market is a potential limiting factor for market growth. Stringent regulations regarding the use of polymers like polyisobutylene is likely to negatively impact market.
