Published Date : Dec 2020 | No. of Pages : 250 Pages | Category : Chemical and Material

The global Styrenic Block Copolymer market size is expected to be worth around US$ 10.6 billion by 2028, according to a new report by Vision Research Reports.

The global Styrenic Block Copolymer market size was valued at US$ 7.7 billion in 2020 and is anticipated to grow at a CAGR of 4.8% during forecast period 2021 to 2028.

Growth Factors

The market is expected to witness growth on account of rising product demand in various applications such as paving and roofing, adhesives and sealants, polymer modification, medical devices, and footwear.

Growing footwear industry is expected to substantially fuel the growth of the market. Constant product innovations, changing lifestyles, and increasing number of working women globally are significantly fueling the demand for footwear. In addition, the growth in sports industry is also potentially fueling the demand for footwear. Factors such as rising consumer spending, growing health consciousness, and rising concerns about fitness are encouraging people to participate in sports and engage in fitness activities. This, in turn, is driving the growth of footwear industry, thereby boosting the demand for styrenic block copolymers.

On the basis of product, the market is segmented in styrene-butadiene-styrene, styrene-isoprene-styrene, and hydrogenated styrenic block copolymers gels. Among them, the Styrenic Block Copolymer (SBS) product segment dominated the market in 2019. Increasing traffic and harsh climate are fueling the demand for safer and more sustainable infrastructure. This, in turn, is further anticipated to create substantial demand for styrenic block copolymer.

Report Highlights

The SBS segment led the Styrenic Block Copolymer market and accounted for a revenue share of more than 71.02% in 2020. This growth can be attributed to the rising demand from polymer footwear, construction, and adhesives and sealants industry. In construction industry SBS is used for paving and roofing application. SBS used in modified bituminous roofing materials to offer various characteristics including excellent waterproofing properties, resistance to thermal degradation flexibility over a wide range of temperatures, performance over long-time periods, and enhanced aesthetic.

Increasing construction spending in emerging economies and infrastructure development activities, especially in emerging economies of Asia Pacific and the Middle East, are the major factors driving the demand for SBS in paving and roofing application.

Construction is one of the major industries that have been hugely impacted by the outbreak of COVID-19 across the globe. Halted or slowdown in construction activities, movement restriction, shortage of labor as a result of measures to contain the COVID-19 outbreak have restrained the growth of construction industry, which, in turn, are anticipated to hamper the demand for SBS in paving and roofing and adhesives and sealants applications.

Asia Pacific dominated the market and accounted for a revenue share of over 43.02% in 2020. Rapid expansion in the construction sector, due to government schemes promoting basic amenities and growing need for affordable housing, is driving the growth in emerging economies such as India, China, and Indonesia. Furthermore, growing consumer awareness and stringent regulations regarding carbon footprints are expected to promote the development of green buildings. This is likely to drive the demand for lightweight and sustainable materials such as styrenic block copolymers.

The rise in demand for permanent houses in rural areas of emerging economies such as India and South East Asian countries is expected to drive the demand for durable, low-cost roofing systems. The market is likely to benefit from rising investments in residential and non-residential construction sectors by the government as well as foreign players to provide sustainable housing and commerce facilities in economies such as India, Vietnam, Thailand, and Indonesia.

In Europe, factors such as recovery of overall economy and growth of end-use industries such as footwear, automotive, and infrastructure are anticipated to drive the market in the region over the forecast period. Countries such as Germany, France, Italy, Russia, and U.K. are the major producers and consumers of these block copolymers. Polymer modification is one of the major application segments and is set to play an important role in the growth of the overall industry.
