The article looks at the factors that contributed to the increase in the prices of butadiene in Asia as of May 2006. Styrene butadiene rubber (SBR) is growing by $50 to $70 per tonne on average for the second quarter. Rates of demand for butadiene worldwide are around 2.5 percent per year. Asian producers expect that SBR prices will decline as western producers export the material to tyro factories.
