Highly Reactive PIB Segment has the Largest Share of Product in the Middle East & Africa Polyisobutylene Market during 2021–2028

According to our latest study on “Middle East & Africa Polyisobutylene Market Forecast to 2028 – COVID-19 Impact and Analysis – by Molecular Weight, Product, Application, and End User,” the market is projected to reach US$ 168.5 million by 2028 from US$ 130.0 million in 2021; it is expected to grow at a CAGR of 3.8% from 2021 to 2028. The report highlights trends prevailing in the market, and the drivers and restraints pertaining to the market growth. The growth of this market is estimated to grow owing to key driving factors such as automotive industry to boost the market growth and growing demand for polyisobutylene from construction industry. However, environmental impact and presence of alternatives/substitutes to critically impacts the growth of the market.

Saudi Arabia has the largest COVID-19 cases in the Middle East and Africa region, and is followed by South Africa and UAE, among others. UAE was the first country in Middle East and Africa to report a confirmed case of coronavirus. The government of MEA is taking possible steps to reduce its effects by announcing lockdown, and thus, impact the revenue generated by the market. Such closures are anticipated to negatively impact market growth in the coming period.

Based on product, the highly reactive PIB segment is expected to register the largest market share during the forecast period. Moreover, the same segment is estimated to register the highest CAGR during the forecast period. In 2021, the highly reactive polyisobutylene (HR-PIB) is a polyisobutylene that has greater than 80 percent of its double bonds located in the terminal position in the molecule, allowing it to react more quickly when producing derivatives, especially detergents and dispersants. The growing demand for HR PIB to improve fuel performance and final lubricant products have led augmented the growth of the HR PIB segment. The further use of HR-PIB as a reactionary intermediate is likely to boost the demand for HR PIB in the forecast period.

BASF SE, Braskem S.A., The Lubrizol Corporation, Kemat Polybutenes, and TPC Group are among the leading companies in the Middle East & Africa polyisobutylene market. The companies are focused on adopting organic growth strategies such as product launches and expansions to sustain their position in the dynamic market.
