State of Butyl Rubber Production and Market in the World and CIS

Butyl rubber (isobutylene-isoprene rubber, IIR) is a copolymer of isobutylene and a small amount of isoprene. It was first commercialized in 1943. The major application of butyl rubbers is the production of tyre inner tubes. The use of chlorobutyl and bromobutyl rubber is currently growing due to their higher curing rate and wear resistance. The global butyl rubber capacities make up about 1.1m tonnes. There are six IIR manufacturers in the world: ExxonMobil Chemical, Lanxess, Japan Butyl Company, Yanhua Petrochemical Company, Nizhnekamskneftekhim JSC and Togliattikauchuk Ltd. ExxonMobil produces more than 40% of the general world output.
