Global Isobutene Market: Drivers and Restraints
High use of isobutene as a fuel additive in aerospace applications, and the rubber tires and tubes industry is prophesied to significantly augur well for the global isobutene market. Chemical compounds produced with the use of isobutene are used in niche applications such as wires and cables, compression packaging, and electrical insulation and other applications such as plastic packaging.
However, volatility in the prices of raw materials is foretold to hamper the growth of the market.
Global Isobutene Market: Forecast by Product and Application
The global isobutene market is classified into tert-butanol (TBA) and methyl tertiary butyl ether (MTBE) cracking by product. In 2017, MTBE cracking secured an impressive market proportion of about 74%. This segment is foretold to bear the brunt of the rising popularity of ethanol as a gasoline blending agent and increasing concerns about the contamination of groundwater due to MTBE leakage.
The report also classifies the market according to application, and the key segments studied are PIB, MMA, butyl rubber, and others. Among these, butyl rubber accounted for the highest consumption proportion of the market in 2017.
