Polystyrene is a vinyl polymer wherein a phenyl group is attached to every other carbon atom. It is versatile, hard and solid plastic belonging to a group of plastics called thermoplastic. It is made through the polymerization of styrene. Polystyrene is used in electrical and electronic appliances such as air conditioners, food packaging materials, monitors, printers, refrigerators, instrument panels, televisions, computers and disposable utensils.

Large amounts of Polystyrene is consumed in food packaging industry and this industry accounts for more than one-third of global polystyrene market. It is also utilized to develop consumer products, create sterile disposable cutlery and to insulate buildings. Expanded Polystyrene(EPS) is used in energy conservation in creation of green built spaces to improve energy efficiency.

Supply-Demand Scenario:

The global polystyrene market s USD 23.91 billion in 2016 and is estimated to grow at a CAGR of 5.38% reaching USD 32.74 billion by 2022.

Growth by Region:

The Asia-Pacific region dominated the polystyrene market followed by North America and Europe.One tonne of polystyrene is processed for every second in The Asia-Pacific region.

Drivers Vs. Constraints:

Increasing rates of industrialization and globalization, growing building & construction and packaging industries, growing demand for polystyrene in electrical & electronic appliances, change in household structures and increasing disposable incomes in emerging countries are some of the drivers that are propelling global polystyrene market. On the other hand demand for polystyrene may not rise as dynamically as demand for other standard plastics due to the advent and availability of advanced substitutes and change in technology.

Industry Structure and Updates:

More than 80% of the new capacities will be created in Asia-Pacific due to the saturated industrialized North America and Western Europe.
