The global styrenic block copolymer market grew at a CAGR of around 7% during 2015-2020. Styrenic block copolymers (SBCs) which combine the properties of a thermoplastic resin and an elastomer, are a type of block copolymers having an elastomeric central arrangement and polystyrene based end-segments. The central blocks can be composed of rubbery polymers, including polyisoprene, polybutadiene and ethylene-butene copolymer, and offer viscoelastic properties. These polymers can be manufactured using different configurations, however, di-block, linear as well as multi-block are the most common configurations. At present, SBCs find extensive applications in polymer modification, paving & roofing, and hot-melt pressure-sensitive adhesive (PSA) products, such as tapes and labels.
The growth of the market can be accredited to the expanding applications of SBC in different sectors. For instance, it is used to enhance the performance and reduce the overall production cost of sealants, gasket materials, rubber bands, toy products and shoe soles. Moreover, it is adopted in formulating diaper adhesives and elastic films. It is also gaining traction as an impact modifier and toughener in plastics and adhesives. Besides this, SBS modified bitumen is widely utilized in road paving and roofing applications. The increasing number of construction activities, in confluence with the rising focus of several countries on upgrading existing infrastructure, is also contributing to the market growth. Additionally, as SBC offers flexibility, resilience, strength and durability, it is finding utilization in medical bags, flexible films and tubing for intravenous (IV) systems, peristaltic pump systems, home care equipment and other drug delivery systems. The rising demand for these medical supplies is anticipated to drive the market growth in the coming years. Looking forward, IMARC Group expects the global styrenic block copolymer market to exhibit moderate growth during the next five years.
