According to the polyisobutylene (PIB) market report, Europe dominated the market in 2015, accounting for a share of 39.23%. This was due to increased demand from the automotive segment for manufacturing tires, hoses, gaskets, and sound damping products. North America followed with a 30.93% market share and APAC contributed 23.92% in 2015.

The HR-PIB segment will be the largest segment in this market and will account for a market share of approximately 60% during the forecast period. The ability of HR-PIB to aid in the manufacture of light truck tires and related compounds like footwear and light-colored mechanical rubber goods will result in the strong growth of this market segment during the predicted period. This increase in the demand for high-performance tires is likely to boost the global polyisobutylene market until 2020.
