North America capacity is scheduled to be expanded by XX tons until 2020.

The author forecasts the focus of polystyrene (PS) demand to continue to grow at a considerable rate over the next five years. Increasing urbanization and the increasing disposable income is providing a great opportunity to market. In the past, capacity utilization of polystyrene plants averaged at only about 75%. This resulted in a, in part, considerable reduction of capacities and restructuring undertaken by manufacturers. Industrialized countries in North America have responded to the excess capacities by reducing production volume and refocusing on growth markets.

The packaging industry in particular consumes a large amount of polystyrene, in the sub segment food packaging in particular. Additionally, polystyrene is often used in the casings of monitors, televisions, printers, and other electrical devices as well as consumer goods. Individual application areas for polystyrene are projected to develop at highly similar growth rates during the upcoming eight years.

Polystyrene are used in an increasing number of markets from packaging, Building & Construction, Electrical & electronics, Consumer Goods, and number of other segments.

Drivers

Development of the worldwide polystyrene (PS) market will continue to be closely linked to the future development of the North America economy. The most important determinants of demand development are: Population growth, urbanization, a change in household structures, and an increasing middle class, in combination with rising private consumption, in emerging countries in particular.

Challenges

Demand for polystyrene will not rise as dynamically as demand for other standard plastics due to a change in technologies and advancing substitution processes.
