Within the global styrenic block copolymer industry, the footwear segment is expected to expand at a steady rate due to the high demand for flexible footwear. Sustainability and longevity of fabrics are two significant factors that fuel demand in the footwear industry. Another lucrative aspect of driving the styrenic block copolymer industry include improvements in purchasing behaviour and the trend to customise footwear for different purposes. This should create a large new market for global styrenic block copolymer suppliers. Styrenic block copolymer shoe soles have a higher coefficient of friction on wet and asphalt road surfaces than other materials such as polyvinyl chloride and vulcanised rubber-based shoe materials, which is expected to raise demand for styrenic block copolymer significantly over the forecast era. China produces over 40% of the overall SBS produced worldwide, owing to its large footwear manufacturing industry. India and Thailand are two other important footwear markets in the country, with SBC demand forecast to rise.
The growing focus of the leading players on expanding their presence across the key developing markets and increasing the variety of products is expected to significantly boost the industry growth over the forecast period. Eastman Chemical Company (NYSE: EMN) is an American company primarily involved in the chemical industry. Once a subsidiary of Kodak, today it is an independent global specialty materials company that produces a broad range of advanced materials, chemicals and fibers for everyday purposes. On May 22, 2019, the company announced investments in expanding its capabilities for the production of hydrogenated and non-hydrogenated hydrocarbon resins at both its Middelburg, the Netherlands, and Jefferson, Pennsylvania, manufacturing sites. Additional investments will also be made in the production of polyolefin polymers at the Longview, Texas, manufacturing site. Such developments are expected to have a positive influence on market growth over the forecast period.
