Polystyrene Foam Manufacturing in the US

Over the five years to 2019, Polystyrene Foam Manufacturing industry revenue is expected to increase. Demand for polystyrene foam from key buying industries, such as downstream manufacturers, food service companies and the construction sector, has risen as consumer spending and housing starts have increased over the past five years. Furthermore, polystyrene foam product manufacturers have experienced stricter regulations regarding the use of polystyrene-based plastic containers in restaurants and other food service businesses. As input prices are projected to rise over the five years to 2024, industry operators are expected to pass on those costs to downstream buyers in the form of higher prices. Additionally, steady demand from downstream industries, such as construction, is expected to contribute to revenue growth. However, the threat of tighter regulations concerning the use of polystyrene foam will continue to pose a challenge to the industry's performance over the next five years.

This industry produces a wide range of polystyrene foam products that include the following: expanded polystyrene (EPS) for food containers and cups; foam ice chests and other packaging; and insulation goods. The industry’s products are used by a wide range of downstream industries in the construction, manufacturing and hospitality sectors.

This report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecasts, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
