Global styrene-butadiene-styrene block copolymer market: Growing investment in R&D
The growing competition in the global SBS block copolymer market in recent years has compelled manufacturers to add value to their product offerings through increased investments in R&D. This has helped in increasing the vendors’ focus on R&D and technological developments to offer new and innovative polymer products that are more functional, cost-effective, and sustainable.
The price sensitivity of end-users has led to manufacturers expanding their product portfolio and developing cheaper bio-based SBS block copolymers. For instance, the manufacturers have developed soybean-based SBS polymers that are capable of replacing synthetic SBS polymers in several applications such as bitumen modification applications and coating applications, without major changes in their specifications, says a senior research analyst at Technavio.
