Argus Butadiene Annual 2016

The Argus Butadiene Annual presents a detailed background analysis of the current butadiene market, providing global supply and demand information for the olefin and its derivatives (polybutadiene, styrene butadiene rubber and ABS resins). As with all Argus Dewitt annual reports, the study is designed to aid forward planning by a full comprehension and assessment of the global market that is currently experiencing new capacities and slower demand growth.


With the increasing maturity of its derivatives and little, if any, expansion into new applications, the global butadiene market is increasingly dependent on world GDP development. The recovery in the developed world from the economic crisis of 2007-2009 has been slower than expected, restricting growth in both domestic demand and imports of finished and semi-finished goods.
