Drivers and Restrains Impacting Polyvinyl Butyral Market
The spreading awarness about benefits of polyvinyl butyral resin, such as; good elasticity, excellent binding efficiency, flexibility, adhesion, and toughness, can contribute to the growth of the polyvinyl butyral market. The availability of a range of polyvinyl butyral resin for both industrial and commercial sectors can support the upsurge of the polyvinyl butyral market in the years to come. The increasing application of polyvinyl butyral as films for lamination, printing ink, adhesive, coatings & premiers, and binders for ceramics and metal powders, thus creating the rise in demand for polyvinyl butyral that boost manufacturers to increase their production capacities can favor the polyvinyl butyral market in the year to come. Several companies are, such as; Suzhou in China, are taking initiatives to serve the need for global customer across several region, which, in turn, can promote the upsurge of the market. The increase in automotive windshield application of polyvinyl butyral can favor the market.
Polyvinyl butyral (PVB) finds significant utility in laminated safety glass for the production of automotive windshields. Shift in consumer trends from personal vehicle ownership to shared mobility services has curbed sales of automotive vehicles. Though, the surge in global middle-class consumers and the positive economic outlook have contributed to the increase in worldwide automotive sales, which, in turn, is expected to cast positive impact on the market in the years to come. These trends are likely to drive the application of polyvinyl butyral in the production of automotive windshield over the forecast period. In the construction sector, polyvinyl butyral is deployed as security glass and laminated safety. The expansion of infrastructure and construction activities along the globe can promote the polyvinyl butyral resins in the forecast term.
Polyvinyl Butyral Market - Segments:
The segment study of the global polyvinyl butyral market is studied on the basis of application and end use industry.
The application-based segments of the polyvinyl butyral market are glass lamination, composite fiber binder, ceramic binder, and wash primer among others. The segment of wash primer is expected to garner decent profit owing to the increasing traction for such products.

The segment of solar energy can garner high revenue by end of the assessment period due to the increasing in the number of installments of solar panels to meet growing demand for clean energy.
Global Polyvinyl Butyral Market -Regional Analysis
The polyvinyl butyral market comprises of the five regions of Europe, Latin America, Asia Pacific, North America, and the Middle East & Africa. Among these regions, the Asia Pacific region is projected to develop at a maximum CAGR through the review period due to growing industries. The demand for PVB is anticipated to grow in several countries of the Middle East & Africa owing to the escalated consumption rate in the construction industry. Furthermore, the shift in economic power globally has positioned the Middle East at the center of several of the world’s fastest-growing markets. Dubai, in particular, has leveraged that position to reinvent itself into a global hub for aviation, tourism, and logistics, which is expected to raise the consumption of PVB to use as an anti-corrosive primer for the steel. The North American region is predicted to witness an excellent growth rate on account of high consumption potential, growing production capacities, and increasing economic growth rate. In Europe, the demand for PVB is forecasted to develop in some countries such as Germany, Italy, Spain, France, the U.K, and Russia owing to an increased spending in innovation and rising purchasing power of consumers. Moreover, the existence of major automobile manufacturers, specifically, in Germany is anticipated to give an added impetus to the market’s growth. Latin American countries such as Argentina, Colombia, and Brazil are expected to observe considerable growth due to escalating consumer spending on passenger cars as well as the incorporation of new technologies and inventions in Polyvinyl Butyral. The Asia Pacific PVB market is anticipated to grow at a reasonable CAGR due to the emerging crude oil processing and expanding petroleum refineries in China and India. Furthermore, continual development of solar energy production capacities in several economies of the Asia Pacific such as India, Malaysia, China, Thailand, and Japan are estimated to increase the demand for laminated solar glass panels, which, in turn, is projected to drive the demand for PVB over the forecast period.
Industry/ Innovation/ Related News
In June 2018, Emerald Kalama Chemical, producer of technologically advanced specialty chemicals expanded its plasticizer range with the introduction of Vitroflex B, a non-phthalate plasticizer. The new product has been designed to enhance the performance characteristics and be a more environmentally friendly alternative to chlorinated paraffin.
In November 2018, researchers at the University of California developed 'non migratory' plasticizers. The new plasticizers work equally well as PVC plasticizers, but contrary to them, these migratory plasticizers do not do not leach out.
