Expanded Polystyrene (EPS) Market Recent development:

  • In August 2018, Atlas Roofing Corporation acquired ACH Foam Technologies which is a leading manufacturer of molded polystyrene solutions with manufacturing facilities across North America. This expands and enhances Atlas' product portfolio and strengthen the position in the North American market.
  • In June 2018, BASF invested in increasing its global production capacity. At the Ulsan site in South Korea, BASF is planning to switch the plant's entire 85,000 metric tons capacity from the white EPS Styropor to the improved insulation raw material grey Neopor EPS until end of 2018. This allows the company to meet the growing demand for the gray material in the Asian market.

Expanded Polystyrene (EPS) Market value and growth:

The market is expected to grow by 5.3% from USD 15.5 billion in 2018 to 20.1 billion in 2023 in the forecast period.

Expanded Polystyrene (EPS) Driver and restraints:

Expanded Polystyrene (EPS) considers the ideal physical and mechanical properties for most insulating needs. It acts as a unique design element a perfect choice for green building. The easy availability for low-cost labor and economical and accessible raw materials are increasing the production of EPS in the region and attracts foreign investments. Providing real environmental advantage, maximizes energy efficiency ensures improved indoor environmental quality and enhancing durability. The building and construction industry is the most significant consumers for the product of the company as provides closed air low thermal conductivity, light-weight, mechanical resistance, low water absorption, and sound resistance. The government proposals for improving the public infrastructure, rising cash-intensive non-residential construction positively impact market growth. Volatility in crude oil prices, availability of high-performance substitutes, countries are slowing economy and growing preference for molded pulp packaging act as the major restraints that hinder the growth of the market. 

Expanded Polystyrene (EPS) Market segmentation:

The market is segmented on the product, based on application, end-user as building and construction, packaging, and others. Product type as white, grey, and black and the segmentation based on regional distribution. Among product, type grey is the fastest growing segment in the EPS market. Grey is gradually penetrating the global market for this industry. Distribution by end-user usage that is divided into two parts Polystyrene and Expanded Polystyrene where polystyrene as Transportation, Electrical & Electronics, Construction, Consumer goods, Food & beverage, Other and

Expanded polystyrene as Transportation, Electrical & Electronics, Construction, Consumer goods, Food & beverage, others.

"Building and construction are considered to be the fastest growing end-use industry in the future."

Segmentation based on application as Insulation, Packaging, Foaming, Component manufacturing, and Chemical intermediate.

Geographically the segmentation of the product occurs as North America, South America, APAC, Europe, the Middle East, and Africa.
