Demand for Isobutylene Market to Grow at a CAGR of 5% Through 2030

The global isobutylene market is poised to record a CAGR of 5% during the forecast period (2020-2030). Attributed to excellent resistivity against water, steam alkalis, and oxygenated solvents, isobutylene has emerged as a material of choice in the rubber industry. Demand for isobutylene in the rubber industry is further gaining a boost from its bundled benefits such as low gas permeation and high-energy absorption (dampening) coupled with high hot tear strength.

Isobutylene has gained significant traction as an ideal ingredient for the production of butyl rubber, owing to its excellent vibration dampening property and high temperature resistivity. Moreover, as butyl rubber is made up of 98% from isobutylene, the market is projected to witness strong growth during the forecast period.

However, in 2020, the isobutylene market has been hit hard by the COVID-19 outbreak and subsequent fall in oil prices. Manufacturing operations across several end-use industries have been scaled down on the account of labor shortages and supply chain disruptions. The result has led to a decline in demand for isobutylene.

Key Takeaways of Isobutylene Market Study

  • On the basis of grade, <99% remains highly preferred, accounting for a significant share of the total market value. However, >99% isobutylene is poised to experience a relatively high growth rate over the forecast period.
