Market Analysis: Global Styrenic Block Copolymers Market

Global styrenic block copolymers market is set to witness a substantial CAGR of 6.93% in the forecast period of 2019- 2026. The report contains data of the base year 2018 and historic year 2017. Rising usage of styrenic block copolymers in healthcare industry and rising environmental concern are the factor for the growth of this market.

Market Definition: Global Styrenic Block Copolymers Market

Styrenic block copolymers are high-performance thermoplastic elastomers which are specially used to improve the application and performance of the products. Hydrogenated Styrenic Block Copolymer, Styrene-Butadiene Styrene and Styrene-Isoprene-Styrene are some of the common types of the SBC. They usually have high crystal clarity, thermal stability, high resistance and indicate no cytotoxic or mutagenic potential. They are widely used in applications such as polymer modification, footwear, wires and cables, medical devices and others.

Market Drivers:

  • Rising demand for advanced material in construction industry will drive the market growth
  • Strict government regulation to decrease the use of PVC will also enhance the market growth
  • Increasing application in bitumen modification will also accelerate the growth of this market
  • High resistance and thermal stability of SBC will also contribute as a factor for the market growth

Market Restraints:

  • Fluctuation in the cost of raw material will restrain the market growth
  • Low resistance of styrenic block copolymers to hydrocarbons will also hinder the market growth

Key Developments in the Market:

  • In April 2014, Kraton Performance Polymers announced the launch of their two new hydrogenated styrenic block copolymers MD6951 and MD1648. They have a distinctive balance of elevated elasticity, incredible tensile strength and exceptionally low melting viscosity that serves for the development of a host of new process apps. This will help the innovators to maintain the softness, pliability and strength of their product
  • In January 2014, Kraton Performance Polymers, Inc. announced that they are going to merge with the styrenic block copolymer operations LCY Chemical Corp so they can combine the company’s portfolio with the LCY's cost-effective and innovative SBC operations. This merge will help the company to improve their overall cost structure and expand their position in China and Asia-Pacific
