Polyisobutene Market: Overview and Dynamics
Polyisobutene, also known as PIB or polyisobutylene, is a low volume commodity thermoplastic product. Owing to its versatile characteristics like exceptional barrier properties, insulation properties and self-healing properties, polyisobutene has become ideal choice in number of end use industries. For instance, attributed to its self-healing properties, polyisobutene is highly utilized in production of adhesives and sealants. Apart from this, it’s well balanced barrier and flow properties, polyisobutene has become choice of insulation material in wires and cables. Growing demand for polyisobutene from range of applications including but not limited to adhesives & sealants, electrical insulation, lubricants, personal care and cosmetics are set to drive the global polyisobutene market during forecast period (2020-2030).
On the basis of end use, personal care and cosmetics has been identified as one of the key consumers of polyisobutene among other applications. Polyisobutene is used as an emollient in cosmetic formulations to offer soft and shiner experience to consumers. Owing to its excellent emollient and moisturizer capability, it is highly utilized in hydrating creams and creams for impure skin. Increasing usage of polyisobutene in plethora of applications such as color cosmetics, lipsticks, baby care products and cleansing creams are set to augment the market growth during the forecast period. Polyisobutene is also used as water vapor barrier in roofing applications. Application range of polyisobutene is just not limited to above mentioned examples, it is also highly utilized in other applications like lubricants, as an extenders and as plasticizers which will bolster its demand in forthcoming years.
COVID Impact Insights
Coronavirus outbreak has pushed global economy in all-time great recession. The spread of the coronavirus has not only forced people to remain in their homes but also caused millions of fatalities in the world. Fear of coronavirus outbreak and in order to prevent its further spreading almost every government has imposed strict measures like lockdowns and strict social distancing which has disrupted every industry and market so the polyisobutene market across the globe. As per UN stats, global economy is estimated to suffer billion dollars of loss in 2020. The coronavirus pandemic has generated massive disruptions in the demand-supply equation across multiple industries, causing a global economic meltdown. As per new normal huge chunk of people are working from home due to which demand for numerous personal care and cosmetic products.
