New Research Report - Global Expanded Polystyrene Market 2017-2021

The following companies are recognised as the key players in the global expanded polystyrene market: Alpek, The Dow Chemical Company, Kaneka, Synthos, and Total.

Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: ACH Foam Technologies, BASF, NOVA Chemicals, SIBUR, StyroChem, SUNPOR KUNSTSTOFF, and Synbra Holding B.V.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from the research team said: “The latest trend gaining momentum in the market is increasing number of manufacturers in APAC. Lower supply constraints in Europe, following the establishment of new polymer foam production facilities in China, is likely to restrict the production, thereby reducing the cost of the product.”

According to the report, one of the major drivers for this market is high demand from emerging economies. The global EPS market is witnessing high growth in emerging economies, such as Brazil, China, Russia, Turkey, Indonesia, South Korea, Mexico, and India. Many OEMs, such as automotive manufacturers, are shifting their manufacturing operations to these countries due to factors such as the availability of land, cheap labor, low transportation costs, and lenient government norms.

Further, the report states that one of the major factors hindering the growth of this market is volatility in crude oil prices. The manufacturing of EPS requires raw materials, which are acquired from the oil and gas industry. The fluctuations in crude oil prices have a severe impact on the prices of the raw materials, which affect the costs of the EPS.

The study was conducted using an objective combination of primary and secondary information including inputs from key participants in the industry. The report contains a comprehensive market and vendor landscape in addition to a SWOT analysis of the key vendors.
