Oct 2020. Styrene-butadiene elastomers (SBR) are the largest-volume synthetic rubber in the world. There are two major types of SBR—emulsion and solution. Emulsion SBR (ESBR) continues to lose ground to solution SBR (SSBR), which is better suited to meet the increasingly stringent specifications of high-performance tires. Nevertheless, emulsion SBR grades still account for the dominant percentage of total world capacity as of 2019. However, as most new SBR capacity additions are based on the solution SBR process, the share of emulsion SBR will likely decrease marginally by the end of the forecast period in 2024. The tire industry is the dominant consumer of SBR, accounting for the majority of total demand in 2019. Growing use of low–rolling resistance tires to reduce fuel consumption and decrease CO2 emissions should increase solution SBR demand. These performance improvements cannot be achieved with emulsion SBR, so the trend is toward increasing use of solution SBR.
