The growth in the global market for styrenic block copolymer is being driven by the rising demand for styrene-butadiene-styrene (SBS). This can be associated with the rising demand for SBS from the polymer modification, footwear, construction, adhesives and sealant segments. The demand for SBS in the construction sector is being led by its applications in paving and roofing. This trend is further supported by rising construction and reconstruction activities around the world on account of rising urbanisation and industrialisation. Geographically, the Asia Pacific region is likely to account for a significant share of the market during the forecast period.
