The global polyisobutylene (PIB) market is primarily driven by the strong demand from the tires and tubes manufacturing industries. Rubbers that contain PIB, stryrene-butadiene rubber, and nitrile rubber are preferred over conventional ones due to their impermeable nature.
Albany, NY -- (SBWIRE) -- 03/29/2017 -- Global Polyisobutylene Market: Overview
Polyisobutylene is a commercial polymer that has widespread applications across numerous industries owing to its superior thermal stability, flexibility, and impermeability to gases. PIB is majorly used in the manufacture of inner tire tubes and adhesives and sealants.
The derivatives of PIB are used as thickening agent in motor fuels and in lubricating oils to minimize oil mist production.
Global Polyisobutylene Market: Key Trends
The global polyisobutylene (PIB) market is primarily driven by the strong demand from the tires and tubes manufacturing industries. Rubbers that contain PIB, stryrene-butadiene rubber, and nitrile rubber are preferred over conventional ones due to their impermeable nature. With increasing demand for tubeless tires due to their durability and low maintenance cost, the PIB market is expected to receive a boost.

Overall, robust demand for automotives in North America and Europe combined with increasing demand for automotives in BRIC nations with changing consumer demographics will favor the industry's growth.
PIB is extensively used in medical packaging due to its high chemical resistance and its low permeability to air, gases, and moisture. The other medical packaging applications of PIB include saline bottles, injectables, serum vials, and seals. Moreover, high cleanliness, good fragmentation performance, and excellent self-healing are the advantages that PIB rubber offers over natural and other synthetic rubbers.
However, the PIB market faces certain growth constraints as well. The use of PIB as a lubricant in ship engines contaminates water, thereby affecting aquatic life by causing genetic alterations and deaths. Thus, measures for environment protection along with stringent government stipulations may challenge the market's growth.
