The global styrene market is expected to grow from $49.3 billion in 2021 to $52.28 billion in 2022 at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 6.0%. 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 styrene market is expected to grow to $62.81 billion in 2026 at a CAGR of 4.7%.
The styrene market consists of the sales of styrene used for making synthetic rubber, resins, and plastics and improving drying oils. 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.
Styrene is a colorless, gritty organic compound derived from benzene. Styrene is readily evaporated and is also used as a precursor to polystyrene and several other copolymers.
The Asia Pacific was the largest region in the styrene market in 2022. North America was the second-largest region in the styrene market. The regions covered in the styrene market report are Asia-Pacific, Western Europe, Eastern Europe, North America, South America, Middle East, and Africa.
The main types of styrene are acrylonitrile butadiene styrene, expanded polystyrene, and other types. Expanded polystyrene (EPS) is a rigid, tough, and lightweight thermoplastic product. EPS is good for the packaging and construction industries because of its lightweight, strong, and excellent thermal insulation properties. It is also segmented by application into automotive, construction, packaging, consumer goods, and others that are available through offline and online distribution channels.
The high demand for polystyrene drives the growth of the styrene market. Styrene is used to produce polystyrene through suspension polymerization. Polystyrene is a versatile plastic used for the manufacturing of refrigerators, air conditioners, ovens, microwaves, and vacuum cleaners. Polystyrene is majorly used in the packaging industry as it keeps food fresher for a longer duration. The demand for polystyrene is high in the automobile industry, where it is used in manufacturing car knobs, instrument panels, trim, energy-absorbing door panels, and sound-dampening foam. Thus, strong demand for polystyrene has resulted in a rise in demand. For instance, India and Iran are expected to lead the capacity expansion in the forecast period in order to cater to the demand. In India, Supreme Petrochem and LG Polymers India are expected to add 0.15 mtpa and 0.03 mtpa (million tons per annum) respectively. Thus, the rising demand for polystyrene and its derivatives positively drives the growth of the styrene market.
The increasing health and environmental concerns due to the use of styrene limits the demand for styrene. Styrene is primarily used in the production of plastics and other resins. Short-term exposure to styrene in humans is known to result in mucous membrane and eye irritation and gastrointestinal effects, whereas long-term exposure to styrene results in effects on the central nervous system (CNS), such as headache, fatigue, weakness, depression, CSN dysfunction, hearing loss, and peripheral neuropathy. In animals, oral exposure to styrene affects the liver, blood, kidneys, and stomach. Thus, the ill effects of styrene on health and the environment restrict the growth of the styrene market.
The companies in the styrene market are working towards developing techniques to recycle styrene. In order to increase the efficiency and popularity of styrene, companies are investing in developing methods to recycle styrene. In January 2022, Agilyx, a Norway-based chemical recycling firm and Toyo Styrene, a Japanese chemicals firm partnered and commenced the construction of Toyo Styrene Co Ltd polystyrene (PS) chemical recycling plant in Chiba, Japan. The plant will boast the per day capacity to recycle 10 tons of post-use polystyrene, a product produced from styrene and used in the manufacturing of tires, back into new styrene monomer for the future of the industry.
In October 2020, Shrieve Chemical Company, a US-based chemicals company acquired Styrene Business unit and other assets of CLP Chemicals for an undisclosed amount. The acquisition expands Shrieve's products offering and enhances its customer service. CLP Chemicals is an American industrial chemical distributor.
