2022-2023 China SBR Market Annual Report

Annual Report Overview


The capacity utilization rate of China’s SBR industry maximized in 2022 owing to profits, and the monthly average operating rate reached 86%, notching a fresh high since 2014. However, as SBR supply ramped up, the profit was inclined to be negative, and the highest profit loss reached RMB 2,100/mt. Therefore, SBR producers that purchased butadiene from the market held a weaker interest in production, and SBR prices were affected by the changes in the circulation of SBR resources. In addition, China’s SBR monthly export volume hit a new high in 2022 due to the price advantage of Chinese-made SBR, RMB depreciation and better overseas demand than expected. Moreover, exporters gained sales opportunities, and the trade flow of China’s SBR exports made a breakthrough.

China’s SBR supply and demand fundamentals changed noticeably in 2022. SBR supply continued rising; the social inventory was low; demand fell short of expectations. What’s the opportunity for SBR market participants? How does the social inventory of SBR evolve in 2022? What are the new changes in the downstream application of feedstock to replace SBR? What is the impact of the increase in the SBR export volume on China’s domestic prices? Will SSBR take a larger proportion in the SBR industry? This annual report will analyze the industry pattern changes and forecast the industry development via detailed and comprehensive data.

The core competitiveness of this report lies in comprehensive and detailed original data which is a result of research by SCI’s analysts. This report involves the SBR industry and its downstream and upstream industries, and it includes a detailed analysis of the output, import, export, operating rate, profit, price, etc., in the past five years.
