The global polystyrene-plastic material and resins market will grow from $39.67 billion in 2022 to $44.95 billion in 2023 at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 13.3%. The Russia-Ukraine war disrupted the chances of global economic recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic, at least in the short term. The war between these two countries has led to economic sanctions on multiple countries, surge in commodity prices, and supply chain disruptions, causing inflation across goods and services effecting many markets across the globe. The polystyrene-plastic material and resins market is expected to grow from $71.91 billion in 2027 at a CAGR of 12.5%.
The polystyrene market consists of the sales of regular polystyrene plastic, polystyrene foam, and polystyrene film. Values in this market are: 'factory gate' values, that is the value of goods sold by the manufacturers or creators of the goods, whether to other entities (including downstream manufacturers, wholesalers, distributors, and retailers) or directly to end customers. The value of goods in this market includes related services sold by the creators of the goods.
Polystyrene is a synthetic thermoplastic material formed by polymerizing styrene. It is used in modelled products, foams, and sheet materials. Polystyrene can be melted at higher temperature for molding or extrusion, and then be re-solidified, in addition to being generally a solid thermoplastic.
Asia Pacific was the largest region in the polystyrene market in 2022. North America was the second-largest region in the polystyrene market. The regions covered in the polystyrene market report are Asia-Pacific, Western Europe, Eastern Europe, North America, South America, Middle East, and Africa.
The main product types of polystyrene are expandable polystyrene (EPS), general-purpose polystyrene (GPPS), high-impact polystyrene (HIPS), and extruded polystyrene (XPS). Extruded polystyrene is manufactured through an extrusion process. This manufacturing process will involve melting together the plastic resin and other ingredients. The applications are HVAC insulation, rigid packaging, seating, and flexible packaging. The end-use industries are the automotive industry; electronics; thermal insulation; pharmaceuticals; consumer industry; packaging industry; construction industry.
The demand for packaged products has increased recently, particularly in emerging economies such as China and India. As the size of the middle-class grew in these countries, the consumption of processed foods, poultry, meat, and agricultural products increased. According to the trade economy, the Gross Domestic Product per capita in China was $10430.73 US dollars in 2020. India's Gross Domestic Product (GDP) per Capita reached 1,947.417 USD in Mar 2021, compared with 2,140.396 USD in Mar 2020. The increase in per-capita income in these economies resulted in the emerging middle-class purchasing more packaged goods. The demand for packaged goods increased the consumption of polystyrene for their packaging, driving the market.
Stringent regulations on plastic materials were a major restraint on the expansion of the polystyrene market. Many of the products in the polystyrene market are potentially hazardous during the manufacturing stages because the manufacturing processes involve reactions that can be dangerous unless controlled carefully. Government agencies and regulators are strictly assessing and managing the risks involved in the production and use of polystyrene. Many cities in the USA have decided to ban polystyrene products from schools and other civic buildings. For instance, in June 2022, the US Interior Department, the executive department of the US federal government announced that it will ban the sale of single-use plastic on public lands, national parks by 2032. In addition, the Integrated Waste Management Authority passed an ordinance to ban polystyrene in the entire San Luis Obispo County. Polystyrene manufacturers are instructed to be compliant with complex regulations that govern labeling, handling, manufacturing, shipping, and storage of the product, leading to an increase in compliance costs for the manufacturers.
The construction and packaging sectors in developing countries are increasingly using Expanded Polystyrene (EPS). EPS provides design and structural cohesion to construction projects and possesses the physical and mechanical properties required for insulation. It is mostly used in the construction sector due to its properties of closed air, low thermal conductivity, low water absorption, lightweight, mechanical resistance, and sound resistance. EPS offers sound weight and volume performances compared to other building materials, making construction simple.
In October 2021, Epsilyte Holdings LLC, a US-based chemicals company acquired StyroChem Canada Ltd for an undisclosed sum. The acquisition makes Epsilyte as one of the leading producers of expandable polystyrene (EPS) in North America. StyroChem Canada Ltd is a Canadian manufacturer of expandable polystyrene (EPS).
The countries covered in the polystyrene market are: Brazil, China, France, Germany, India, Indonesia, Japan, South Korea, Russia, the UK, the USA, and Australia.
