Medium Molecular Weight Polyisobutylene Market

Copolymer of isoprene and isobutylene is called as polyisobutylene. MMW Polyisobutylene finds wide ranging applications across host industries. Polyisobutylene used in large volume in the production of agricultural chemicals, pulp & paper, inner tubes of tires, chewing gum, sealants, adhesives, caulks, and among others. MMW Polyisobutylene is typically used in order to achieve desired characteristics in the final products such as higher strength, flexibility, increased performance in adverse conditions, etc. MMW Polyisobutylene exhibit high molecular weight making it impermeable against gases while offering it with extended stability at wide range of temperature. Additionally, it exhibits high level of resistance to salts, alkalis and acids.

Strong demand for MMW Polyisobutylene from adhesive manufacturers is mainly fueling market growth. Strong growth of adhesive industry has been supported by the wide-ranging applications of it. Adhesives are being used in host of industries including automotive, construction, packaging, footwear, aerospace, furniture, etc. With attractive growth in above mentioned application fields, the demand for MMW Polyisobutylene is growing at a rapid pace. 

Production as well as demand of MMW Polyisobutylene is severely affected by the outbreak of COVID 19 in 2020. This has given a major jolt to cross border trading of MMW Polyisobutylene. MMW Polyisobutylene production halted owing to lockdown and social distancing regulations imposed by various governments. Import and export activities hampered as result of decreased mobility and trade cross borders to avoid infection of COVID 19. However, the trade and production activities are restored gradually during third and fourth quarter of 2020. As most of the vaccine manufacturers across the word are striving to launch their COVID 19 vaccine, the market is expected to reach its pre COVID 19 level soon.
