The Global Styrenic Block Copolymers Market Analysis, 2019 -

DUBLIN--()--The "Global Styrenic Block Copolymers Market Analysis 2019" report has been added to's offering.

The Styrenic Block Copolymers market is expected to reach $12.27 billion by 2026 growing at a CAGR of 7.5% during 2018 to 2026. Styrenic block copolymers are the largest consumed products of Thermoplastic Elastomer (TPE) family. They are used in a variety of applications, which require high-performance polymers. They have properties very similar to that of rubber but they process like polymers. They are cheaper than other TPEs owing to their bulk consumption. Factors such as growth of global footwear industry, increasing application in bitumen modification and growing usage of high-performance specialty polymers in various end-use industries are fuelling the market growth. However volatility in raw material prices is hampering the market. In addition, rapid industrialization in emerging countries such as India and China is likely to open new opportunities for SBC market in near future.

By Product, Hydrogenated Styrenic Block Copolymer (HSBC) has significant growth during the forecast period. HSBCs have a different compatibility with formulation ingredients than SIS and SBS. This allows the use of more stable hydrogenated formulating ingredients, providing systems of overall high stability, transparency, and clarity.
