Butyl Rubber Price Trend for the First Half of 2023


The downstream demand for butyl rubber in the Asia-Pacific region in the first quarter drove up the price trend of butyl rubber. The major influence in this rising price of butyl rubber was the demand from automotive and other related industries. In addition to this, the overall market sentiment also seemed to be moving in a positive direction in this quarter. However, the second quarter did not prove to be in favor of this trend.

The production rates of butyl rubber matched the demand for the product and eventually surpassed it, creating huge stockpiles of it in the market. The introduction of different players in the region further worsened the conditions and thus increased the competitiveness of the market. Due to these feeble conditions, the market players were forced to sell their produce at a compromised rate, and thus, the price trend of butyl rubber faced southwards.


In Europe, the strong supply chains and declining downstream demand exerted a negative influence on the prices of butyl rubber in the first quarter of 2023. The level of stockpiles and negative market conditions proved to be a problem for the market for butyl rubber.

In the second quarter, the price trend fluctuated due to the loss of momentum in the automotive and tire industries. However, the pharmaceutical industries and other related sectors supported the butyl rubber market in the month of May. But then the poor performance of the construction sector and overall low demand caused the price trend of butyl rubber to move downwards.

North America

The first quarter witnessed a mixed trajectory in the market for butyl rubber as the prices were stagnant at first, then rose, and then declined. The major influencing factor of this trend was the fluctuations in demand from the automotive sector, which were, in turn, influenced by the availability of semiconductors.

The challenging financial conditions of the market further proved to be a challenge for the price trend of butyl rubber. However, the second quarter showcased sustainable growth in the butyl rubber market. The market activities of the automotive and tire industries gained momentum, and the consumers also showcased confidence via their increased buying potential. In addition to this, the supply sector also supported the rising market movement of butyl rubber, and thus, as a result, the price trend of butyl rubber inclined.
