Competitive vendor landscape

According to the research analysis, the global SBC market is consolidated with the presence of several global vendors. The market is dominated by global vendors such as Dynasol, China Petrochemical Corporation, LCY GROUP, PolyOne, and TSRC. These players have a vast geographical presence with large production facilities located globally. Although small and medium scale vendors are coming up with innovative capabilities, the prominent players will still have a strong foothold in the market during the forecast period. The competitive environment in the market will further intensify over the next five years with the increase in product extensions in terms of innovation in technology.

“In the SBC market, environmental standards are expected to play a crucial role. Strict enforcement of legislation by the European environmental associations has led end-users to demand environment-friendly products increasingly. The end-users are voluntarily shifting toward bio-friendly technology and products, which leave a smaller carbon footprint after its product cycle. This also helps in improving their brand image and reduces the possibility of incurring high penalties,” says Hitesh Bhatia, a lead plastics, polymers, and elastomers research analyst from Technavio.
