Polyisobutylene (C4H8)n is a versatile, non-toxic, tasteless, transparent, and odorless viscoelastic polymer. It is produced by the cationic polymerization of isobutylene (C4H8) and is used as a modifier for various adhesives and sealants. It provides water repellency to improve viscosity-index and offers high-temperature resistance and excellent electrical insulation. It is highly resistant to acids, alkalis, and salt solutions, and soluble in ether, hydrocarbons, and chlorinated hydrocarbons. Besides this, it is gas permeable and holds air for a longer time, which makes (C4H8)n ideal for various applications in the automotive industry. As a result, it is gaining immense traction across the globe.
Polyisobutylene Market Trends:
The increasing global population is catalyzing the demand for passenger and commercial vehicles. This represents one of the key factors positively influencing the market. (C4H8)n is extensively used in the manufacturing of tubeless tires on account of its high gas permeability and resistance to water. In line with this, shifting consumer preferences toward electric vehicles (EVs) with tubeless tires to minimize drag and maintenance is supporting the market growth. In addition, the growing use of (C4H8)n in the telecommunication industry to produce optical fibers is creating a positive market outlook. Furthermore, a significant rise in the construction, remodeling, and renovation activities of residential and commercial buildings is increasing the requirement for adhesives and sealants. This, in turn, is offering lucrative opportunities to manufacturers. Besides this, the rising adoption of (C4H8)n in the cosmetic industry to formulate personal care products is strengthening the market growth. Moreover, rapid industrialization and advancements in production technologies are the other factors driving the market.
