2017-2018 China SSBR Market Annual Report

Annual Report Overview


Chinese-made solution styrene butadiene rubber (SSBR) prices rallied in Q2 of 2017 after decreasing. The monthly average price of imported SSBR stayed at highs. The total import volume under the HS codes 40021915 and 40021916 rose by 42% Y-O-Y in H1 of 2017. The advancement of China’s tire labeling regulation boosted the consumption of SSBR.

As for global newly-added SSBR supply, one unit in South Korea will go into commercialized production in 2017. At least two units (excluding those in China) will be put into operation in 2018. Meanwhile, the implementation of tire labeling regulation in EU moves to the second stage. As for the China’s tire labeling regulation, 2017 is the second year that tire producers paste the labels voluntarily. The consumption volume of SSBR greatly increases. Some China’s tire producers are working on the R&D of high performance tires. Some China’s SSBR producers start to customize grades. Are there any new changes in China’s SSBR supply pattern? What are the new features of competition in the import market? What will happen to the global SSBR competition pattern with the cooperative development of the foreign SSBR giants?
