The demand for bio-based polybutadiene has increased, due to several factors. Growth in the automotive industry is driving the demand for bio-polybutadiene. Vehicle manufacturers are looking for ways to create lightweight vehicles while maintaining quality standards. Bio-polybutadiene offers improved impact resistance and elasticity, which makes it a main constituent in the production of high-performance tires. These tires boost fuel efficiency by reducing rolling resistance and increasing traction of tires to the surface, which offers great handling. It also increases the durability of tires and minimizes wear & tear of tires. Such factors are driving the market.

Urbanization is leading to a rise in the consumption of products, such as roofing materials, coatings, adhesives, sealants, and other construction chemical materials, which boosts the demand for bio-polybutadiene.

Bio-polybutadiene is extensively used in packaging industries for coatings, adhesives, and flexible films to provide biodegradable and sustainable solutions.

Bio-polybutadiene is used in the consumer goods industry to make toys, athletic goods, footwear, electronics, and other products. It provides excellent elasticity and imparts resistance to products. The medical and healthcare sectors use bio-polybutadiene to manufacture gloves, surgical instruments, medical gadgets, and other products.

Growth in electric vehicle sales is boosting the sales of bio-polybutadiene. The government of India has outlawed diesel vehicles that are older than ten years, and the number of electric vehicles being produced has increased. Specialized bio-polybutadiene tires that support the weight of the vehicle are utilized in the production of electric automobiles. The bio-polybutadiene market is being driven by the rise in the use of electric vehicles in both the private and business sectors.

The tire industry is already using a variety of renewable materials such as bio-based rubber, silica, natural and plant-derived oils, resins, and filler material tire industry is moving towards reducing energy dependency from non-renewable energy sources. Additionally, it is shifting towards reducing the total energy consumption.

Consumption of raw materials is proportionately growing, as the rubber industry is growing. By reducing the raw material consumption, reducing the tire weight and improving the quality parameters, increasing the consumption of bio based and renewable resources and reducing the dependency from the resources of petroleum origin. Further, industry is increasing its energy efficiency and reducing non-renewable energy source.

After styrene butadiene elastomer (SBR), polybutadiene elastomers (PBR) account for the second-largest volume of synthetic rubber produced globally. Vulcanized polybutadiene elastomers are ideal elastomers in the tire industry, due to its high resilience, abrasion resistance, and resistance. PBR is also used for manufacturing automotive parts, such as hoses, belts, and others.

The outbreak of coronavirus disease in 2019 (COVID-19) restrained the global economy, created global interdependence, and challenged the governments of various nations. The pandemic raised concerns among economies and businesses by shifting focus to the online supply of consumer electronic gadgets & automotive components and creating manufacturing issues.

In January, the WHO labeled the COVID-19 outbreak as a public health emergency of global concern and proclaimed it a global pandemic in March 2020. This deadly virus has become one of the biggest pandemics in human history. The COVID-19 outbreak is a public health emergency that affected almost every industry. The long-term effects of the pandemic are expected to affect the growth of various industries during the forecast period, especially across Eastern Europe, the European Union, the US, and Eastern & Central Asia.

As of February 13, 2023, this pandemic had infected over 678,724,789 people, and over 6,791,202 people died from the disease. COVID-19 cases have been registered in more than 231 countries and territories. Many countries are economically weak, while others have poor healthcare systems that affect the economy and lives of people.
