Polystyrene market trends, developments and prospects:

  • polystyrene (PS) capacity rationalization takes place in developed markets (plant closures, consolidations of market players resulting from higher raw material cost); at the same time, new plants are added in China and Middle East/Africa
  • mature North America, Europe and Japan PS markets show flat growth while other regions industries demonstrate positive trends
  • polystyrene faces replacement by other – both natural and synthetic – alternative materials (polypropylene, polyethylene terephthalate) due to high price and environmental issues
  • higher CAGRs in Africa, the Middle East, Eastern Europe and Latin America compensate moderate increase in mature PS markets (or even possible decreases)
  • demand grows as a result from increases in downstream industries (electronics and appliances, construction, disposables, packaging industry)
  • PS capacity introductions are expected in Asia Pacific and Middle East; larger production volumes may lead to extra supply and lower prices
