A key factor promoting the utilization of modified polymer bitumen and high-performance plastics is the growing demand for advanced materials in construction & construction to meet structural requirements. Structuring applications requiring strength and lightweight materials consist of copolymers in comparison to traditional metals as reinforcements.

Moreover, the demand for SBCs is likely to increase with regulations from a number of governments that promote sustainable construction practices for energy utilization and reduce building waste. In 2018, the application for paving & roofing accounted for 34.0% of the total volume. The change in the trend towards alternative routes for production using bio-based commodities has an impact on the dynamics of the industry because it is recyclable and reusable, allowing PVC, rubber and other conventional materials to be substituted.

With its main applications from pavings & toovers to adhesives & dyes Styrene Butadiene Styrene (SBS) was the most commonly used. In 2018, the segment was worth USD 4.94 billion. In 2018 the total volume of SBS was nearly 57 percent of footwear, polymer modifications and adhesive applications. Increasing demand for SBS for polymers such as high impact polystyrene, ABS, EVOH, polyolefine and mass moulding compounds will contribute to future growth of the segment in terms of impact strength, durability and flexibility.

In asphalt (bitumen) modification, use of SBC has been increasing. The product is for polymer bitumen (PBB) binders for road building, waterproofing and mastic materials. The improved compatibility of the components of the PBBs has a qualitative impact on the properties and the ultimate properties of road floors. A further important factor in the application of polymer modified bitumen and high-performance plastics is the increased use of advanced construction materials that meet structural requirements such as lightweight and strength.

China is the largest consumer and SBC manufacturer in the world. The United States (imports) and Taiwan (exports) are its major trading nations. Over the last few years, US imports from South Korea (mainly SBS), and Taiwan's exports to China have increased significantly. The Chinese Ministry of Transport has launched a new policy requiring the use of paving-modifying materials to build province's highways. Moreover, the adoption in China of "One Belt, One Road" by domestic infrastructure policy also promotes the use of SBC in asphalt changes.
