Thermoplastic Elastomers in Russia: Production and Market

The topic of thermoplastic polyurethane was already described in one of our publications (“The Review of the CIS Thermoplastic Polyurethane Market,” #4(64), 2012). This chemical product finds application in the production of shoe soles, electronics, automobiles and cable products. But, the present article will be focused on another group of thermoplastic elastomers – styrene TPE.

Being the cheapest among thermoplastic elastomers, it also ranks number one in terms of output and consumption volumes. In Russia, commercially, styrene-butadiene-styrene block co-polymers are only made by Voronezhsintezkauchuk JSC (Voronezh region), a subsidiary of Sibur Holding (Moscow). In 2010 and 2011 its output grades constituted 31,200 tonnes annually.

The future plans of the company as well as the country's domestic market are highlighted in detail in the present article (Issue #1(73)).
