The India Styrene Market Has Reached Approximately 850 Thousand Tonnes in Fy2022 and is Expected to Further Grow at a Steady CAGR of 5.33% by Fy2032

The India Styrene market has reached approximately 850 thousand tonnes in FY2022 and is expected to further grow at a steady CAGR of 5.33% by FY2032. Styrene is a colorless liquid with a pleasant scent that is highly volatile in nature. Styrene is employed as a precursor to many polymers such as Polystyrene, Expanded Polystyrene (EPS), Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene (ABS), Styrene Butadiene Rubber (SBR), and Unsaturated Polystyrene Rubber (UPR). Although, manufacturing of polystyrene is the largest application of styrene.

The market for styrene is primarily being driven by an increase in demand of polystyrene from the packaging industry across the nation. Due to its water-resistance, light weight, and flexibility, polystyrene is widely used to package consumer goods like dairy, vegetables, poultry, and other processed food items. The need for ready-to-eat meals and the rise of the cold storage industry is driving up demand for packaging materials, which is driving up demand for styrene. Expanded Polystyrene possess excellent thermal resistance and high compressive strength due to which it is used in beam and brick construction, underfloor heaters, and under concrete floor slabs, walls, roofs, and floors. Also, Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene, Styrene Butadiene Rubber, and Unsaturated Polystyrene Rubber finds applications in various industries like polymer processing, foam, automobile, footwear, plastic, building & construction, and others. Owing to rapid industrialization and increased funding by government towards development of public infrastructure like flyovers, bridges, metros, highways, the demand of polymers, plastics, paints & coatings is anticipated to rise which will most likely expand the styrene market. The Styrene market volume is estimated to reach approximately 1400 thousand tonnes by FY2032.

Based on the region, in the historic period of FY2015-FY2022, West India has been dominating the market accounted about 65% of the Styrene market in FY2022. Western states like Gujarat and Maharashtra have been the key consumer of styrene due to presence of leading industries of paints & coatings, packaging and automotives located in these regions. By FY2023, imports meet all of India's styrene requirement. Although India Oil Corporation Limited (IOCL), one of the biggest refineries for refining, transportation and marketing of petroleum products is aiming for a greenfield expansion at Panipat, Haryana, which is estimated to be operational by FY2027.

  • Based on end-use, the India Styrene market is segregated into Polystyrene, Expanded Polystyrene (EPS), Paints and Coatings, Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene (ABS), Styrene Butadiene Rubber (SBR), Unsaturated Polystyrene Rubber (UPR), and Others. Among these industries, the Polystyrene industry is dominating the Styrene market. In FY2022, this industry consumed roughly 37% of the Styrene market. Polystyrene is classified into two kinds: General-Purpose Polystyrene (GPPS) and High-Impact Polystyrene (HIPS). GPPS finds application in the food & beverage sector for packaging materials, cutlery, spoons, cups, etc. HIPS is prominently employed in the electronic industry, shelves, kiosks, and more. Both the kinds are easy to thermoform, manufacture and are lightweight in nature.
Major exporting players fulfilling the Styrene demand in India are Shell Eastern Petroleum, Tricon Energy Inc., The Kuwait Styrene Company, Samsung C&T Corporation, and Others.
