India Butyl Rubber market is anticipated to grow at a steady CAGR of 4.78% by FY2030. Increasing use of Butyl Rubber due to its inertness, high stability, and thermal resistance drives its applications in numerous industries such as tyre manufacturing is anticipated to spur the demand for Butyl Rubber in India.

Butyl rubber is synthetic rubber which is a copolymer of isobutylene and isoprene. The abbreviation IIR stands for Isobutylene Isoprene Rubber. Butyl Rubber displays properties like superior weather resistance, heat, and chemical resistance attributes in comparision to other general-purpose rubbers. Butyl rubber is well renowned for its superior air retention qualities. Steam hoses, mechanical items, adhesives, and wire and cable insulation are a few other applications of butyl rubber.

Excellent properties of butyl rubber drive its application to manufacture tyres for automobiles. The booming manufacturing of tyres for both domestic and international sales is driving the Indian tyre sector. Also, the tyre business benefits from the rising car ownership caused by growing urbanisation and the rise of income in the middle-class people. The government’s plan to spend INR 18,000 crores to improve public bus transportation is anticipated to boost market expansion. These factors are anticipated to contribute towards the growth of Butyl Rubber demand in the forecast period. One of the he major uses of Butyl Rubber is to produce Polyisobutylene (PIB). The homopolymer of isobutylene, or 2-methyl-1-propene, on which butyl rubber is based is polyisobutylene, also referred to as PIB or polyisobutene, (C4H8)n, which is required for the manufacturing fuel additives. Furthermore, the demand for Butyl Rubber is increasing to produce Polyisobutenylsuccinic Anhydride (PIBSA) from Polyisobutylene (PIB), which is further required to produce additives for lubricating oils and motor fuels. Butyl Rubber has the properties that can remove the oil mist from the engines in the automotive and increase the oil’s viscoelasticity when added to the motor fuels and lubricating oils. Additionally, demand for Butyl Rubber to manufacture cleaners that are very efficient in removing oil spills further contributes to the market. Other booming application of Butyl Rubber is in the manufacture of sealants that can be used in rubber roof repairs and damp proofing. Butyl Rubber has become a popular option for surrounding of speakers rather than foams as it has become a more cost-efficient option for sealing sound leakage in automotives.

Geographically, India Butyl Rubber Market is segregated into North, South, East, and West. In the historic period of FY2015-FY2023, West India has been dominating the market. In FY2023, West India consumed approximately 37% of the market. Currently, India is majorly dependent on imports for butyl rubber. The domestic demand is satisfied by importing goods from other nations. Reliance industries Limited in partnership with SIBUR has developed a joint venture, Reliance Sibur Elastomers Private Limited, situated in Jamnagar, India, which caters some percentage of butyl rubber demand in India.

Based on end-use, India Butyl Rubber Market is divided into Tyre & Tube, Pharmaceuticals, Others. As of FY2023, the Tyre & Tube industry is dominating the Butyl Rubber market with a share of 94%. With the growth in vehicle production and sale, the demand for tyres is anticipated to fuel the butyl rubber demand across the nation.

Only producer in the India Butyl Rubber market include Reliance Sibur Elastomers Private Limited. Major players in the production of Global Butyl Rubber are ExxonMobil, Arlanxeo (Saudi Amarco), Japan Butyl Co. Ltd, SINOPEC Beijing Yanshan Company, Formosa Synthetic Rubber Corporation, Tolyattikauchuk (SIBUR), Shandong Chambroad Petrochemicals Co., Ltd, China Petrochemical Corporation, Nizhnekamskneftekhim, Sabic & ExxonMobil JV, and Others.
