Acrylonitrile butadiene styrene (ABS) is a polymer that is made by polymerizing acrylonitrile and styrene in the presence of butadiene. Its general composition is half of styrene and the balance is divided into acrylonitrile and butadiene. By varying the usual composition of ABS, its various grades can be formed with a wide range of features and applications.

The high demand from end-users, adoption of low weight consumer materials in substitute to the heavy materials are the reasons behind the extensive growth of the acrylonitrile butadiene styrene (ABS) market. The ABS is being widely used in transportation sector, and due the growth of the automobile sector, the demand for ABS is also increasing.

The Asia-Pacific acrylonitrile butadiene styrene market, in terms of value, is projected to reach $16,039 million by 2018 from $11,755 million in 2013, at a CAGR of nearly 6.4% from 2013 to 2018. The growing manufacturing industries, growing automobile sector, and the replacement of heavy weight consumer materials with low weight consumer materials are some of the key factors driving the market growth. On the other hand, dynamic pricing of butadiene and the components that are used for manufacturing ABS are expected to restrain the market growth in the coming years.

Based on applications, the ABS market has been segmented into transportation, electrical & electronics, consumer goods & appliances, and other applications. Consumer goods & appliances accounted for the largest market share of nearly 50% in 2013. This segment would continue to dominate the market, although the transportation segment is projected to grow at a faster CAGR during the forecast period. The lightweight and heavy strength of the ABS materials are some of the major reasons for the growth of this market.

Based on country, the ABS market is segmented into China, Japan, Korea, Taiwan, and India. China accounted for the largest market share among the countries and continues to dominate the market during the projected period. In terms of growth rate, India is projected to grow at a faster CAGR between 2013 and 2018.

The key players in the Asia-Pacific ABS market include Chi Mei Company (China), LG Chem (China), and Formosa Plastic Corporation (Taiwan).
