Highly Reactive Polyisobutylene Market to cross $332.3mn by 2024

The surging demand for HR-PIB across a wide range of applications is considerably driving highly reactive polyisobutylene (HR-PIB) market. HR-PIB is significantly used in metalworking, sealant, cosmetics, mining, grease and lubricant manufacturing, pertaining to its notable properties such as high tack in adhesive generation, good oxidative and thermal stability, low air, gas, and moisture permeability, and chemical resistance. 

In addition, low and medium molecular weight highly reactive polyisobutylene are prominently deployed as viscosity modifiers, lubricating oils, and fuel modifiers. Owing to its non-skin irritant characteristic, HR-PIB is also used in various medical applications such as transdermal systems and surgical tape adhesives, thus offering a widespread scope of investments for HR-PIB market players. Pertaining to its massive application spectrum, highly reactive polyisobutylene industry size, in 2016, was worth USD 200 million.

Texas Petrochemicals LP (TPC)

One of the leading providers of quality products catering to petrochemical-based and chemical companies, Texas Petrochemical had announced the expansion of its polyisobutylene production plant in Houston, back in 2005. Since 2000 apparently, TPC had made quite a name for itself in HR-PIB industry, having doubled its production capacity by 2005 through several expansion projects. Pertaining to its enhanced production capacity and the fact that TPC was the only merchant marketer of highly reactive PIB in North America back then, TPC’s clientele, primarily across the fuel additives and lube manufacturing sectors, had begun to traverse across a positive growth path, thereby impelling the regional HR-PIB market share. Speaking of which, owing to the exponentially growing medical packaging, construction, and automotive sectors, North America highly reactive polyisobutylene (HR-PIB) industry size is expected to register an annual growth rate of more than 4.5% over 2017-2024.

BASF and Petronas

The well-known chemical manufacturing company, BASF, recently made it to the headlines for having teamed up with Petronas Chemicals to construct an HR-PIB production plant in Malaysia. This plant will apparently produce 50,000 tons of HR-PIB per annum, which can be supplied to manufacturers of lubricants and high-performance fuel additives. Moreover, in order to expand its business across the Asian zone, BASF is also looking forward to enhancing its product portfolio with the implementation of advanced technology at its plants, which may have a marginal but powerful impact on Asia Pacific HR-PIB industry share. As per statistics in fact, in 2016, Asia Pacific highly reactive polyisobutylene (HR-PIB) market size was worth USD 100 million, pertaining to the huge product demand across the ever-expanding automotive sector in APAC, mainly across China and India.
