The Polyisobutylene market in North America is projected to reach 410 thousand tons by 2015. The market is expected to be driven by its extensive usage in several applications, including lubricants, fuel additives, adhesives, sealants, and others. Growing demand for highly reactive polyisobutylene (HR-PIB) owing to its superior performance and processing features is also influencing market growth.
