Middle East Will Lead the Market Growth While European Demand Recovers

Europe and Middle East is a large market for butadiene. Currently, Europe and Middle East together are responsible for around 34% of the global butadiene demand. The recent global economic downturn has impacted European nations more than the Middle East countries. As a result, the demand growth in Europe has been very slow in the past two years and has declined in some countries. Middle Eastern demand for butadiene is growing significantly but is much smaller in volume compared to European demand. As the European economies are expected to recover from the downturn, the European butadiene demand is expected to grow faster in the forecast period than it had grown in the past.

Styrene Butadiene Rubber and Polybutadiene are the Major End Uses of Butadiene in Europe and Middle East

Butadiene is largely used in the production of Styrene Butadiene Rubber (SBR), which is used to manufacture automobile tires. SBR is also used in manufacturing of adhesives, sealants, coatings and some other rubber articles such as shoe soles. Butadiene is also used in making Butadiene Rubber (BR) and polymerized to polybutadiene rubber. SBR accounts for a 29.1% share of Europe and Middle East’s butadiene demand and polybutadiene accounts for a share of 27.7%. Other polymers made from butadiene include Styrene-Butadiene (SB) copolymer latex, which is used in paper coatings, carpet back coatings, foam mattresses and adhesives. Styrene butadiene latex accounts for 12.5% of the Asia-Pacific butadiene demand. Adiponitrile is one of the important chemical intermediates manufactured from butadiene. It holds 3.2% share of the region’s demand.
