Polyisobutylene (PIB): A Market in Motion - Volume 1

Feb 2017/PetrochemicalsPolymers and PlasticsSpecialty Chemicals and Advanced Materials
The polyisobutylene (PIB) market has been in flux recently, because of feedstock, process, and applications dynamics.  Nexant is preparing a suite of three reports using an integrated/modular approach to analyze PIB markets, economics, and technology. This study will be useful to players all along the value chain, and especially to PIB producers, feedstock suppliers, PIB consumers, and potential new players considering entering the PIB market.  The three reports in the suite are Polyisobutylene(PIB): Markets in Motion, Volume 1: Market Analysis; Polyisobutylene(PIB): Markets in Motion, Volume 2: Economic Analysis; and Polyisobutylene(PIB): Markets in Motion, Volume 3: Technical Analysis.
