A report by Grand View Research, Inc. indicates that the global styrenic block copolymers (SBCs) market is projected to reach a valuation of USD 10.22 billion by the end of 2024. Increasing spending on infrastructure development, especially in countries such as the Middle East and Southeast Asia, is one of the key growth stimulants of the market. Spiraling usage of advanced materials in building and construction to fulfill structural requirements can translate into greater uptake of SBCs.
Additionally, stringent government regulations are promoting sustainable construction practices as means to cut down energy utilization and building waste, which in turn can work in favor of the market. SBCs are used in applications pertaining to paving and roofing, adhesives and sealants, and wires and cables. Surging consumption of adhesives and sealants for structural bonding purposes is anticipated to further support the growth of the market during the forecast period (2016 to 2024).
The market for styrenic block copolymer is also expected to benefit from the robust growth of the baby diapers and footwear markets. Improved fit and comfort of diapers owing to usage of elastomeric materials are encouraging manufacturers to adopt styrenic block copolymers. Their high resilience strength is escalating their demand in the footwear industry. Strengthening manufacturing sector in emerging economies can augment the market.

U.S. Styrenic Block Copolymers (SBCs) Market Revenue By product, 2014 – 2024 (USD Million)
Companies operating in the market are focusing on improving the physical properties of styrenic block copolymers by using molecular tailoring. Besides this, extensive R&D activities are being carried out to develop materials that meet the specific requirements arising from end-use industries. Constant innovations and advancements are likely to help the market thrive over the forecast period.
Growing emphasis on replacing polyvinyl chloride (PVC) with SBCs due to former’s negative effects on health and environment is anticipated to bolster penetration in the medical sector. Superior thermal stability, high sterilizability, design versatility, crystal clarity, and high resistance are some of the key properties of styrenic block copolymers favoring rise in their medical applications. They are used in the manufacturing of medical tubing, syringes, and medical bags. Several players are manufacturing SBCs focused on medical use. For instance, in July 2017, IneosStyrolution Group GmbH launched new grades of styrenic block copolymer for medical applications.
On the other hand, volatile prices of crude oil are posing pressure on downstream derivatives, including SBCs, which in turn can hamper growth prospects for the SBCs market. Nevertheless, rapid technological advancements are paving way for green and eco-friendly materials, which are estimated to open new avenues for market players.
