Polyisobutylene Market Analysis

The global polyisobutylene market size reached US$ 2.4 Billion in 2023. By 2032, IMARC Group expects the market to reach US$ 3.4 Billion, at a projected CAGR of 3.7% during 2023-2032.

  • The rising demand for PIB in the production of tire inner liners and other automotive parts is acting as a major growth-inducing factor in the market. The increasing vehicle production and sales globally are driving the need for more PIB, especially in developing economies. According to the Society of Indian Automobile Manufacturers report titled Performance of Auto Industry 2022-2023, the industry produced a total of 2,59,31,867 vehicles including passenger vehicles, commercial vehicles, 3 Wheelers, 2 Wheelers, and quadricycles from April 2022 to March 2023, as against 2,30,40,066 units from April 2021 to March 2022.
  • The rising demand for sealants and adhesives along with the increase in infrastructure projects is contributing to the growth of the market. For instance, in August 2023, Avery Dennison Performance Tapes announced the launch of a new line of high-performing pressure-sensitive adhesives (PSA) tape products for the building and construction industry.
  • According to the India Brand Equity Foundation (IBEF), India has to enhance its infrastructure to reach its 2025 economic growth target of US $5 trillion. Under Budget 2023-24, capital investment outlay for infrastructure is being increased by 33% to rupees lakh crore (US$ 122 billion), which would be 3.3% of GDP and almost three times the outlay in 2019-20.
  • The stringent environmental regulations are encouraging the use of materials that contribute to increased energy efficiency and reduced emissions, thereby influencing the market growth. PIB’s rolling improving tire inflation retention helps reduce vehicle emissions by maintaining optimal tire pressure, aligning with these regulations.
  • For instance, the Ministry of Road Transport and Highways (MoRTH) issued a notification that mandates the requirement of rolling resistance, wet grip, and rolling sound emission for tyres falling under classes C1 (passenger cars), C2 (light truck), and C3 (truck and bus) as defined in the automotive industry standard 142:2019.
  • Innovations in polymer technologies often lead to improved properties of PIB, expanding its application range in industries such as lubricants and fuel additives, which can enhance performance under extreme conditions.
  • The rising use of PIB in the medical field for items such as salves, adhesives bandages, and other pharmaceutical products is facilitating the growth of the market.

Product Description

Polyisobutylene (PIB) refers to synthetic rubber or butyl rubber, predominantly utilized for its excellent impermeability to moisture and gases. This rubber is a polymer formed from the polymerization of isobutylene with small amounts of isoprene.

Polyisobutylene is highly valued in various industries for its resistance and stability to acids, bases, and the efforts of ozone and other weathering elements.

The physical properties of polyisobutylene include flexibility, tackiness, and elasticity, which makes it particularly useful in the manufacturing of tire inner liners, sealants, adhesives, and chewing gum.

It enhances the durability and performance of tires in the automotive sector by maintaining the air pressure within tires over extended periods.

PIB is employed in the pharmaceutical industry as a binder or stabilizer in medical products, such as salves, and as a base for medical adhesives.
