Polyisobutylene, also known as butyl rubber is a vinyl polymer made from the monomer isobutylene, by cationic vinyl polymerization. It is the only rubber that's gas impermeable. Globally, increasing demand from end-use industries such as fuel additives, sealants, automotive, and pharmaceutical, growing automotive industry and manufacturing of tires and tubes, and advantageous properties of polyisobutylene such as, superior impermeability, oxidation resistance, ozone resistance, and improved stability are the prime growth drivers of global polyisobutylene market. In addition, growing focus on development of eco-friendly polyisobutylene, increase in adoption of polyisobutylene for application in newer industrial vertical, and emerging economies such as China, India and others, will create new opportunities for global polyisobutylene market. However, volatile prices and availability of raw materials, availability of substitute compounds, and complex process of manufacturing are the key restraints for global polyisobutylene market.

 Polyisobutylene Market

Geographically Europe dominated global polyisobutylene market, with approximately 40% of. Asia Pacific is projected to have fastest growth, owing to rapidly increasing automobile industry, rise in industrial sector, and growing manufacturing of tubes and tire, and increasing demand for packaging in the pharmaceutical industry in developing nations such as China, and India in this region. Among all the applications, automotive industry has the highest market share in global polyisobutylene market due to higher usage of polyisobutylene-based butyl rubber in the tire industry, owing to its air retaining and bonding properties along with heat retention capabilities. High molecular weight polyisobutylene is the market leader among all types of polyisobutylene, owing to its better UV, oxidation, and heat resistance properties.
