The global Styrene Copolymer market stood around 1600 thousand tonnes in 2021 and is expected to grow at a healthy CAGR of 6.42% during the forecast period until 2035. At its joint project manufacturing location situated in Mailiao, Taiwan, Kraton Corp. has announced an expansion project for high flow hydrogenated styrenic block copolymer products to increase the output capacity by 30% by the third quarter of 2024.

Styrene Copolymer is a thermally stable elastomer. Applications of this copolymer in footwear is quite prominent. The need for styrene copolymer in footwear applications is being driven by its qualities, such as excellent elasticity, barrier properties, slip resistance, high durability, wear resistance, and high resistivity, making them a perfect material for footwears. Some of the important applications of Styrene Copolymer are elastic bands, hot melt adhesives, elastics, top items, shoe soles, and asphalt for road paving and roofing material.

The market driving factor for Styrene Copolymer is its excellent properties. The demand for Styrene copolymer is anticipated to increase due to the higher coefficient of friction of Styrene copolymer for making shoe soles in comparison to other materials like Polyvinyl chloride (PVC) and vulcanized rubber. The demand is primarily from the Footwear sector with a market share of about 35% global Styrene Copolymer market in 2021. Furthermore, the need for road and highway maintenance is expected to increase in the coming years in developing countries, and there will be a plenty of potential for the asphalt business worldwide with this infrastructure growth. Thus, asphalt modification will further fuel the global Styrene Copolymer market in the coming years.

Based on demand by region, Europe is dominating the Styrene Copolymer market followed by North America and Asia Pacific region. The government programmes encouraging basic utilities and the rising demand for inexpensive housing are driving the rapid expansion of the construction sector, which is fueling growth in emerging markets such as India, China, and Japan. Styrene block copolymers are also frequently employed in the production of paints, glue, and sealants, all of which are extensively used in the building and construction sector, is anticipated to further fuel the Styrene Copolymer market in the forecast period.

Based on the end-user industry, the global Styrene Copolymer market is segmented into Shoe Material, Modification Asphault, Polymer Modification, Adhesives, and Waterproofing Membrane. Shoe Material is the dominating sector as the consumer of Styrene Copolymer. It is anticipated that this sector will remain the biggest consumer of Styrene Copolymer by the forecast period. Polymer Modification industry is also a prominent consumer of the global Styrene Copolymer industry. The compatibility of the Styrene Copolymer to adjust the flexibility of polymers is anticipated to further swell the demand of Styrene Copolymer in the forecast period.

Major players in the production of Global Styrene Copolymer are China Petroleum Corporation, Kraton Performance Polymers, Inc., TSRC corporation, Dynasol Group, Baling Petrochemical, LyondellBasell, Keyuan Petrochemicals, Zeon Corporation, En Chuan Chemical, Chevron Phillips Chemical, INEOS Styrolution, and Kraton JSR Elastomers.
