The growth in the SBR market
[http://www.transparencymarketresearch.com/styrene-butadiene-rubber.html ] is primarily
driven by the increasing demand from the tire manufacturing industry, which is the largest
consumer of SBR. Increased automobile sales in major countries have played a key role in
increasing the demand for tires. In addition, the tire labeling regulations in countries
like Japan, Korea and the European Union have created huge demand for solution SBR
(S-SBR). However, volatility in raw material prices, especially butadiene prices,
continues to be a major inhibitor for the market.

The limited supplies of natural rubber coupled with the geographical constraints on
its production have created a huge crossover opportunity for SBR. The market in the next
five years would face a drastic shift towards production of S-SBR from E-SBR. The demand
for S-SBR is expected to outpace the supply in the next three years. Large corporations
have already begun work on installing new S-SBR plants that would help them gain market
share in view of the increasing demand.
