High Purity Isobutylene Market Trends

  • Growing demand from the rubber industry propels the market growth.

Market CAGR high purity isobutylene is being driven by the growing demand from the rubber industry. High purity isobutylene (HPIB) is widely utilized in the production of various rubbers such as butyl rubber, polyisobutylene, and others. Butyl rubber is used in adhesives, consumer goods, and pharmaceuticals. Aside from that, the substance is widely utilized in the manufacture of tires. The increasing usage of the product for roof repair appears to have fueled the rise of the butyl rubber business. Sporting equipment, automotive and mechanical goods, vibration isolation, and pharmaceutical closure are some of the other product applications. According to the Automotive Tyre Manufacturers' Association (ATMA), tyre output in India increased by 8% in 2019 to 1,919.81 lakh/numbers. Furthermore, India exported US$1,853,720,000 in rubber tires in 2019, a 1.6% increase over the previous year. Furthermore, anti-dumping tariffs placed by the US on Chinese tyres would help India's tyre exports rise in the next years, driving high purity isobutylene market growth in India for butyl rubber manufacture. Furthermore, with a thriving automobile industry, tire production in India is rising at an exponential rate. As a result, rising car production in India is pushing up demand for high purity isobutylene.

Additionally, high purity isobutylene vapours are heavier than air, and a flame can easily flash back to the source of the leak. The leak could be a liquid or a vapour leak. It can cause asphyxiation due to air displacement. As a result, HPIB is utilized in the production of isooctane, a high octane aviation fuel. High purity isobutylene is used as an addition to gasoline to increase octane performance. Furthermore, high purity isobutylene is widely used in the production of poly-isobutylene (PIB), which is primarily used in products such as fuel and lube additives, viscosity modifiers, and two-stroke motor oil, monograde engine oils, marine oils, gear and transmission fluids, and metalworking fluids, among other applications. According to the Petroleum Planning and Analysis Cell (PPAC), India's gasoline demand increased 10.5% in November 2019 compared to the same month in 2018. The total amount of fuel consumed was 18.77 million tons.

Furthermore, demand for high-performance elastomers and plastics, which are widely utilized in the automotive and construction industries, is increasing. High purity isobutylene is a critical raw ingredient in the manufacture of isobutylene-based elastomers such butyl rubber, which is utilized in tire manufacturing and other automotive applications. Growing need for high-performance elastomers and plastics is likely to increase demand for high-purity isobutylene, fueling market expansion.
