Impact of COVID-19 Pandemic on Highly Reactive Polyisobutylene Market

In 2020, various industries had to slow down their operations due to disruptions in supply chains caused by the shutdown of national and international boundaries, which led to low demand for HR-PIB. The pandemic caused disturbances in manufacturing processes due to restrictions imposed by government authorities in various countries on headcount on work floors and transportation, which made challenging for employees to commute to and from the worksites. HR-PIB finds major applications in the manufacturing of high-performance fuel and lubricant additives. The decreased demand for fuel from various industries hindered the consumption of fuel additives, eventually hampering the sales of HR-PIB.  However, as the economies started reviving their operations in 2021, the demand for HR-PIB also began to rise gradually.

Market Insights

Increasing Use of HR-PIB in High-Performance Fuel and Lubricant Additive Production

HR-PIB is an important intermediate that finds application in the production of high-performance fuel and lubricant additives. Due to its highly reactive nature, it is preferred over conventional polyisobutylene in the production of additives. The main function of lubricant additives is to improve the properties of the base stock under different operating conditions. Moreover, high-performance lubricant additives support more fuel-efficient engine designs. Dispersants are lubricant additives that help prevent sludge, varnish, and other deposit formation on critical surfaces. The demand for HR-PIB is growing in the industrial synthesis of dispersants for automotive engine oils. The presence of strong additive manufacturing bases in the US, Europe, and Asia Pacific makes them prime consumers of HR-PIB. Hence, the increasing use of HR-PIB in the manufacturing of high-performance fuel and lubricant additives boosts the market growth.

Application Insights

Based on application, the highly reactive polyisobutylene market has been segmented into adhesives/sealants, lubricants & grease, hydraulic fluids, metal working fluids, and others. The lubricants & grease segment held the largest market share in 2020. Lubricants such as engine oils, transmission oils, gear oils, greases, and compressor oils are highly consumed in the automotive, aircraft, marine, and machinery industries. HR-PIB helps enhance the overall performance of lubricants.
