Styrene butadiene latex market will be primarily driven by adhesives and paper industry growth over the forecast duration. The global demand for adhesives and sealants in 2014 was 8.1 million tons, which is anticipated to reach at 12 million tons by 2024. Adhesives are widely used in all major end-user industries such as construction, automobile, electricals, etc. High and low butadiene content SB latex is used in adhesives on large scale. Thus, growth in automobile and construction industries, will propel growth in adhesives demand, which will eventually be beneficial for styrene butadiene latex market size growth in the coming years.

Pertaining to the rising demand for latex binders in the paper, construction, and adhesives sectors, styrene butadiene latex market is expected to carve out a rather profitable growth path in the ensuing years. The product is essentially a type of emulsion polymer that has a higher crosslink density and tensile strength as compared to styrene butadiene rubber. It also exhibits other favorable qualities such as increased flexibility, resistance to oils and abrasion, lower water permeability and dimensional stability, subject to which styrene butadiene latex industry outlook is forecast to witness majorly lucrative transformations over 2017-2024. Global Market Insights, Inc., states that styrene butadiene latex market share will grow at a CAGR of 3.5% between 2017 and 2024 and will exceed USD 9 billion in the forecast time span.

The paper processing sector stands as one of the major application arenas of styrene butadiene latex market. The product is extensively used for paper coating in magazines, newspapers, flyers, catalogues and paper food cartons, given that it enhances the pigment’s binding ability and makes the end-product brighter, stiffer, glossier and water resistant. With rising global demands for innovative paper products and the exponential growth of the paper industry, styrene butadiene latex industry is likely to witness considerable growth prospects.
