The growth experienced by styrene butadiene rubber market is fueled by many factors. Tire manufacturing industry is the biggest factor contributing to this industry. Increase in automobile sale across the globe has led to a rise in demand of tires. The tire industry alone constitutes about 75% of SBR’s market share, both, in terms of demand and consumption. Styrene butadiene rubber is the most commonly used form of rubber. It accounts for 45% of global consumption. Growing footwear industry at a CAGR of 6.4% and construction industry at a CAGR of 6.0% from 2012 to 2018 are expected to give an additional impetus to the market.


Despite such strong market drivers, the market does face its set restraints. Volatile pricing of the raw material, especially butadiene, is a huge challenge for the styrene butadiene market to overcome. The factors further complicating the situation are limited supply of natural rubber and regional constraints on production. This however, has created a significant cross-over opportunity for SBR market. In the coming five years, the demand will shift towards E-SBR and S-SBR. Analysts also predict, S-SBR demand will outpace the supply in the coming three years. Manufacturers have already started installing and expanding S-SBR plants to gain substantial market share.

Asia Pacific holds the biggest market share for styrene butadiene, followed by Europe and North America. According to statistics, Asia Pacific accounted for 45.2% of global demand in 2011, and is estimated to grow at CAGR of 6.6% from 2012 to 2018.
