SBS (Styrene - Butadiene-Styrene) copolymer block is a homopolymer formed by a styrene and butadiene link. It can be used as a substitute to traditional vulcanized rubber, owing to its high elasticity and viscosity nature. SBS block copolymer is used as an adhesive, because of its tenacious abilities.
The Styrene - Butadiene-Styrene block copolymer market could be segmented into two major categories: on the basis of types into: thermoplastic elastomers, polybutadiene rubber, styrene butadiene rubber, styrene butadiene styrene rubber and others, and on the basis of end users into: automobile parts industry, medical devices industry, electric devices industry, adhesives industry, waterproofing materials industry, office automation industry, liquid sealing industry, roofing industry, polymer alteration and others. The market could also be segmented on the basis of geography into: North America, Europe, Asia Pacific and the rest of the world regions.
The global production of the SBS block copolymer market is estimated to reach 1,910 million tons by 2017. Thermoplastic elastomers exhibit the fastest growth rate in the SBS block copolymer market.
Expansion strategies adopted by the adhesive application industry and an increased usage of altered asphalts for waterproofing and roofing purposes, are some of the factors driving the SBS block copolymer market. The rising economies of the Asia Pacific nations, provides lucrative opportunities for the market.
Some of the key players in the SBS block copolymer market are: Polimeri Europa, China National Petroleum, ShenZhen Yanshan, Dexco Polymers, Sinopec Baling Company, Kraton Performance Polymersand others.
