Rise in baby healthcare issues and disposable incomes drives Styrenic block copolymer (SBC) market growth
Styrenic Block Copolymer(SBC) Market size was more than $1.96 million tons for 2015 and is predicted to register CAGR of more than 4.52% by end of forecast timeframe. Baby diapers industry size is predicted to cross $64.2 billion by end of 2023 from $39 billion for 2014, with projected profit at 6% by end of forecast timeframe. Rising baby healthcare issues along with rise in purchasing capacity are key aspects driving industry growth.
These are primarily utilized to produce tabs, waistbands, leg elastics ,side panels and landing zone in diapers. Enhanced comfort and best fit size of diaper due to elastomeric substances led producers to accept compounds like SEPS, SBS, SEBS, SEEPS and SIS which promoted demand for the product. Styrenic block copolymer (SBC)compounds contribute about 40% to 80% by mass of total baby diapers.
Latin America and APAC Styrenic block copolymer (SBC) market share can grow substantially in terms of baby diaper use. Rise in population along with increase in disposable incomes is predicted to influence the regional industry growth.
Approvals from U.S. Pharmacopoeia and FDA(Food & Drug Administration of U.S.) to make use of the compound in medical sector due to less dependence on PVC(Polyvinyl chloride) is predicted to fuel Styrenic block copolymer demand.
High resistance, transparency, design versatility, exceptional thermal stability, easy sterilization by gamma irradiation and mutagenic potential are main features promoting industry growth. Key raw substances, natural gas and crude oil are involved in production of SBC(Styrenic block copolymer). Varying raw material costs due to political instability can adversely impact industry trend.
