Styrenic Block Copolymers (SBCs) are high-performance thermoplastic elastomers engineered to improve the performance capabilities of a broad range of end products and applications. SBC is primarily classified into three types, namely styrene-butadiene-styrene block copolymers (SBS), styrene-isoprene-styrene block copolymers (SIS) and styrene-ethylene-butylene-styrene block copolymers (SEBS). There also exists a minor segment polystyrene-ethylene/propylene-styrene (SEBS), which is less common in the market.
The global SBC market is witnessing high growth because of the growing replacement of PVC with environment-friendly compounds resulting from the increasing demand in medical and healthcare applications. This market is estimated to reach $8,894.19 million by 2019, growing at a CAGR of 6.7% from 2014 to 2014. The key driver of the market is the growing demand from various end-user industries for several applications, particularly the medical industry.
