Regional Market Overview

Get the latest insights on price movement and trend analysis of Polybutadiene Rubber in different regions across the world (Asia, Europe, North America, Latin America, and the Middle East & Africa).

Polybutadiene Rubber Price Trend for the H1 of 2023


In the Asia Pacific region, the price trend of polybutadiene rubber fluctuated in the first quarter of 2023 but inclined in the second quarter. The initial months of the first quarter were favorable for the prices of polybutadiene rubber, but soon, the trend declined due to the feeble market sentiments of the automotive sector.

However, the second quarter witnessed a gradually inclining trajectory for the price trend of polybutadiene rubber. The downstream sector increased its market momentum, and with significant growth in the pharmaceutical and automotive sectors, the prices of polybutadiene rubber surged.


In Europe, the price trend of polybutadiene rubber declined in the first and second quarters of 2023. The price sentiments suffered from the weak performance of tire industries, decreasing energy prices, and a notable decline in the production cost of polybutadiene rubber. The reduction in new orders in the latter months of the second quarter and slow exports of materials further pushed the prices of polybutadiene rubber into the negative zone despite the improvement in the performance of the automotive sector.

North America

The prices of polybutadiene rubber fluctuated in the North American region in the first and second quarters of 2023. The price trend was mostly affected by the decline in the production activities of the automotive sector. Also, the low demand from the construction sector reduced the number of new orders leading to the rise in inventory levels and thus aiding in the falling of polybutadiene rubber prices.

Analyst Insight

According to Procurement Resource, the price trend of Polybutadiene Rubber is estimated to showcase a fluctuation trend owing to the uncertainties in the demands from the downstream automotive sector across the regional markets.

Polybutadiene Rubber, commonly referred to as PBR, is a synthetic elastomer made from the polymerization of butadiene monomers. It is a type of synthetic rubber with high resilience and excellent elasticity. PBR possesses remarkable tensile strength, abrasion resistance, and low-temperature flexibility, making it suitable for various applications.

Its key properties include good resistance to wear and tear, superior impact resistance, and high resilience, which are advantageous in the production of tires, conveyor belts, seals, gaskets, and other automotive and industrial products. Additionally, its ability to blend with other rubbers further enhances its application versatility.
