The major trend driving the expanded polystyrene (EPS) market is the huge demand from the building and construction sector, which finds its usefulness in a myriad of applications such as floor insulation, insulation foam for closed cavity walls, and roofs.

Expanded Polystyrene (EPS) is one of the multipurpose polymers available for a variety of applications. EPS has found numerous application areas across a wide range of industries due to its light weight, rigidity, and thermal and acoustic insulating properties. EPS has low thermal conductivity, shock and sound absorbing characteristics, and moisture resistant properties.

North America expanded polystyrene (EPS) market is currently valued at XX billion in 2014 and is expected to reach XX billion by 2020 showing a compound annual growth rate of XX%. US currently dominates the North American market for EPS followed by Canada. The US EPS market demands for higher consumption due to its larger population needs and their growing activities across the constructions and packaging industries.

Our current data shows that US dominated the North America EPS market, bestowing XX% of the total revenue in 2015. The US EPS market, one of the fastest amongst major consuming countries, is expected to grow at a CAGR of xx% from 2015 to 2020.

Expanded polystyrene are used in an increasing number of markets from Packaging, Building & Construction to number of other segments.

Drivers
