Various Application of Styrene Butadiene Latex to Boost the Demand in Coming Years
The global styrene butadiene latex market is anticipated to rise in the market due to rise in demand from paper coatings market. Styrene butadiene latex is dominantly used for binding coated papers. It provides enhanced and high coating speed along with binding power that results in water resistance, opacity, brightness, high gloss level, and smoothness. Styrene butadiene latex provide these results at a much lower cost compared to other alternatives. Styrene butadiene latex is used in catalogs, advertising flyers, label stock, annual reports, and magazines. It also used for coating paperboard products such as folding cartons in food packaging. It enhances print performance, varnish, and ink performance, along with optimizing scoring, stiffness, ad glueability. Styrene butadiene latex is also used for paper saturation in the production of specialty board and papers to achieve resistance from petroleum and grease. It also helps in improving the strength in high temperature. The saturated specialty boards and papers are used as sandpapers, masking tapes, containers, gaskets, and book covers.
The styrene butadiene latex find applications in various other industries such as mortar additives, adhesives, coatings & paints, glass fiber processing, fiber processing, and paper processing. It is also used extensively in carpet industry for manufacturing tufted carpet. The styrene butadiene latex finds application in adhesive that is used in electrical, automobile, and construction industry. These industries are consuming styrene butadiene latex majorly thus, increasing its demand in the market.
Concern for Environment Protection Might Hamper Market Growth
The global styrene butadiene latex market is expected to face some restrains in market growth during the forecast period. Constant fluctuating prices of raw materials is one of the major challenges for the market growth. This can result in instability of the market. The raw materials used in styrene butadiene latex industry are water, emulsifier, styrene, and butadiene. Butadiene and styrene are derived from crude oil. Thus, changing prices of crude oil also affects the styrene butadiene market. All other related industry that styrene butadiene latex finds application in also suffers due to this reason. The rise in awareness among customers and government’s initiative to conserve trees is another leading factor for the downfall of the market. Shift to non-paper based promotional and advertising brochures (internet) will highly affect the market growth. Adoption of secondary and recycled fibers will also hamper the market growth. Environment friendly paper making process is one of the major factor hampering the global styrene butadiene latex market.
