In 2016, the combined capacity of styrene butadiene
rubber (SBR) and cis-polybutadiene rubber (BR), which are the two most popular products in China, shared 60.1% of China's total capacity.

Asia-Pacific will remain the growth engine of the global butadiene
industry, with the Chinese market expected to register a growth rate of 5.6% and India predicted to become one of the fastest-growing countries in terms of demand, expected to grow by 15.6% by 2018.
The demand for Butadiene
in India stood at 324 KTPA in 2018 and is projected to cross 483 KTPA by 2030.
With exceptional properties, products made of styrene butadiene
rubber are finding applications across multiple industrial verticals.
Using this system it was possible to construct precise polymer chains, with a sequence of styrene repeat units, tagged onto a sequence of butadiene
repeat units and finished off with another block of styrene units, to give styrene--butadiene--styrene block copolymer (SBS).
BASF announced the start-up of a new butadiene
extraction plant at its Verbund site in Antwerp, Belgium.
Qatar Petroleum (QP) and Zeon Corporation and Mitsui & Company, both Japan-based, have signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) for the development of an integrated butadiene
extraction and elastomer complex in Ras Laffan.
Rosneft is going to restore butadiene

1 -- Industry analysts, GBI Research, in their latest report has opined that European production of butadiene
, the chemical required to create the synthetic rubber used for tyres, will soon overtake demand for the first time since 2000, as a result of the continent's shrinking car industry.
