Polybutene Market: Introduction
Polybutene is an organic polymer made from a mixture of 2-butene, 1-butene, and isobutylene. Polybutenes are considered as unique versatile polymers as they are ideal for a wide variety of applications such as rubber modification, adhesives, sealants, lubricants, paints, and coatings, etc. The polybutene market is likely to boost ahead with a higher single-digit CAGR over the forecast period of 2019-2029. Key market actors are focusing on both organic and inorganic strategies for increasing their polybutene offerings, this has been identified as a recent supply-side trend in polybutene market. For instance, in August 2018, LyondellBasell has completed the acquisition of A. Schulman Inc. LyondellBasell has thus strengthened its position in the market as Schulman’s Advanced Polymer Solutions segment which also contains polybutene-1 will be added to the company. In addition, Daelim has invested around US$ 67 Million for expanding its polybutene plant based out of Yeosu. Furthermore, wide brand offerings by top companies coupled with growth in the end-use industries are some of the driving factors for the market. Whereas, stringent regulations on polymers and disruption in raw material procurement may hinder the market growth over the long term forecast.
