ASA is manufactured by the introduction of grafted acrylic ester elastomer during co-polymerization reaction between styrene and acrylonitrile. It is an alternative of acrylonitrile butadiene styrene (ABS). ASA is widely accepted by various industries because of its properties such as high toughness, chemical resistance, thermal stability, and better resistance to weather.

It is expected that the ASA market will experience significant growth during the forecast period. Its better properties over other thermoplastic material such as ABS, have resulted in ASA polymers being increasingly adopted in automotive, building and construction and other end-user industries.

Additionally, it is also penetrating other domains such as consumer electronics and home appliances, packaging and sports accessories. Compared to other materials, ASA has significant properties such as heat and aging resistance, high surface finish, high tensile strength, and resistance to chemicals; these properties are augmenting the application of ASA especially in the automotive sector. In a vehicle, ASA is used in manufacturing the instrument panel, interior parts, lighting, hoods, electrical parts and others.

Increasing automotive sales across the world are further increasing the market of ASA. The U.S., China, Germany, the U.K., Japan, India, France and South Korea are major automotive markets and are expected to significantly impact that ASA market.

Despite the advantageous properties of the ASA, there are some disadvantages that may restrict the growth of ASA polymers market. ASA melts with other thermoplastics such as polystyrenes, polyolefins and nylons. It is, however, moderately resistive toward concentrated acids and chlorinated hydrocarbons. Additionally, ASA generates toxic smoke when burned. Although these factors exist, ASAs increasing application in various domains offers significant opportunity for market growth. For example, ASA is finding opportunities as a material for 3D printing. In May 2018, Filamentive launched ASA filament for 3D printing. ASA is utilized as a 3D printing material because of its high strength, little warp and ability to resist UV light.
