The global styrene butadiene rubber (SBR) market has been estimated at USD 56.11 billion in 2016 and is projected to reach USD 72.02 billion by 2021, growing at a CAGR of 5.12% during the forecast period, 2016 to 2021.
Styrene isoprene butylene styrene, also known as SIBS, is a biostable thermoplastic elastomer with physical properties that overlap silicone rubber and polyurethane. Initial data collected with SIBS stent-grafts and coatings on metallic stents demonstrate hemocompatibility, biocompatibility and long-term stability in contact with metal. SIBS polymers contain block segments of styrene monomers and rubber monomer units like other styrene block copolymers. However, SIBS also contains unsaturated elastomers or rubber units having isoprene and butadiene.
A shift towards polymer devices over metallic devices is gaining popularity in the medical industry, to improve the operational efficiency. This is expected to drive the SIBS demand in the global market. The adhesive & sealants industry is another key market to drive its demand in the global market. SIBS has potential application in pressure sensitive adhesives in the tapes market. Wires & cables is another segment, which drives the demand for SIBS in the emerging markets. However, fluctuating raw material prices are anticipated to act as a restraint for the global SIBS market growth.
