Butadiene Rubber Production Cost Analysis 2020

Butadiene rubber, also known as polybutadiene, is a synthetic rubber. Butadiene rubber is a polymer created from the polymerisation of monomer 1,3-butadiene. It holds a high resistance to wear and is used primarily in the manufacture of tyres, which consumes nearly 70% of the total production of butadiene rubber. Another 25% is used as an additive to improve the impact resistance of plastics such as polystyrene and acrylonitrile butadiene styrene or ABS. It is one of the most commonly manufactured synthetic rubber, along with styrene-butadiene rubber.

Butadiene rubber is created in two ways. Either they are created with high cis content (95% to 97%) or with only 35% cis content along with 55% trans and 10% side vinyl. It is mixed with styrene monomer in order to produce high-impact polystyrene and styrene and acrylonitrile monomer in order to create a high-performance plastic known as acrylonitrile-butadiene-styrene copolymer.

Procurement Resource provides an in-depth cost analysis of Butadiene Rubber production. The report incorporates the manufacturing process with detailed process and material flow, capital investment, operating costs along with financial expenses and depreciation charges. The study is based on the latest prices and other economic data available. We also offer additional analysis of the report with detailed breakdown of all cost components (Capital Investment Details, Production Cost Details, Economics for another Plant Location, Dynamic Cost Model).
