Polyisobutylene (PIB) Market Is Estimated To Evolve At A CAGR Of 5.6% By 2033


According to estimates, the market for polyisobutylene (PIB) would grow at a CAGR of 5.6% and reach a value of US$ 4 billion by 2033, up from US$ 2.3 billion in 2023. It is possible to create a clear synthetic hydrocarbon elastomer called polyisobutylene (PIB) or polyisobutene (C4H8) by polymerizing isobutylene. The production of a wide range of goods, including lubricants, tyres, adhesives, fuels, sealants, and others, need polyisobutylene as a critical raw material.

Due to its thermal stability, high flexibility, ozone resistance, oxidation resistance, and impermeability qualities, polyisobutylene is a versatile polymer with many applications. Its ability to withstand the elements enhances its demand in the production of mechanical products such as hosepipes, pharmaceutical stoppers, and construction sealants. The characteristics of polyisobutylene, such as electrical insulation, and is impermeable to water vapor and gases, making it an excellent choice for sealants in photovoltaic system panels.
