2017-2018 China SBS Market Annual Report

Annual Report Overview


The styrene-butadiene-styrene (SBS) market opened at a high level in 2017. In Q1 of 2017, SBS prices followed the uptrend in the commodity market, hitting a 5-year high. Later, SBS prices trended down, depressed by the price downswing in the butadiene market. The violent price fluctuations brought opportunities as well as challenges. China’s SBS capacity was 1,168kt/a in 2017, up 7.16% Y-O-Y. Demand from major downstream industries remained stable.

In-depth implementation of "the Belt and Road" strategy boosts the construction of the surrounding highways. At the same time, rail construction in first and second-tier cities accelerates, stimulating the development of modified asphalt waterproof roll industry. In the future, infrastructure construction will continue to be the main driving force of SBS demand growth. As for the supply, investment gradually becomes rational. Some new projects, construction projects and technological transformation projects are postponed successively, curbed by regional industrial policies and environmental pressure. SBS capacity expansion slows down, which will lay a foundation for the healthy development of the SBS industry in the future.

With prices, operating rates, capacity, output, profit, etc, this report makes a deep insight into the supply-demand side based on objective data and market dynamics. In virtue of years of accumulated data and industrial experience, the report will provide players with guidance by helping to seek opportunities and avoid risks in the ever-changing market.

Report Value:

(1) Help to understand the supply status with output data of different types of SBS.

(2) Comprehensively compare the profits from producing dry SBS, road modification-used SBS and oil-extended SBS and analyze the profitability at major producers.

(3) Analyze the development of downstream industries and the major potential industries.

(4) Show the supply-demand changes and predict the demand pattern evolution in the future.
