Styrenics Market Statistics - 2030

The global styrenics market size was valued at $76.6 billion in 2020, and is projected to reach $134.9 billion by 2030, with global styrenics market forecast expected at a CAGR of 5.9% from 2021 to 2030.

Styrene is an organic compound that evaporates easily and has a sweet smell with a precursor of several copolymers such as polystyrene, unsaturated polyester and others. Polystyrene is a synthetic aromatic hydrocarbon which is made from a monomer known as styrene. It can be solid or foamed, it possesses a poor barrier to oxygen and water vapor and has low melting point. It is most widely used in plastics. The rapid increase in population and income led to increase in demand of various products in automotive, construction, and food processing. The increase in demand of these products have directly driven the demand for styrenics market. Additionally, increase in awareness among the people regarding the greenhouse gas effect on environment due to the presence of variety of building raw materials have increased the demand for the styrenics market. Governments across the globe are promoting sustainable ways such as wind energy, which can reduce greenhouse emissions that are primarily due to use of fossil fuels and industrialization. In the application of wind energy, the equipment used such as wind blades need to possess various properties such as light weight, and good strength. 17% of the raw material used for production of wind turbines is plastic or resin. The increase in demand for energy and various national plans toward green energy is expected to create abundant opportunities in the styrenics industry. The increase in population and presence of surplus funds in family led to increase in the purchasing power of the consumers in the automotive sector. The increase in demand for various vehicles, especially in personal vehicle and industrial trucks, forklifts and others, have driven the styrenics market growth. Styrene is used as a raw material in the manufacturing of wheels, wheel cover, in car interiors, and as a shock absorber. In addition, increase in strict rules of various national agencies toward personal safety in the transport vehicles is one of the major driving factors for the growth of the styrenics market size. The environmental awareness among people has increased the demand for eco-friendly products such as e-cars, creating ample opportunities for the growth of styrenics market during the forecast period. Demand for styrenics in Asia-Pacific is increasing at a rapid rate due to rapidly increasing urbanization in the region. In addition, countries such as India, Australia, Japan, Korea, and Indonesia, have highly invested in developing infrastructure sectors such as transport, smart cities, and food storage.  

Styrenics-Market-2021-2030

In 2020, the American Conference of Governmental Industrial Hygienists announced a threshold limit values for styrene of 10 ppm TV-TWA and 20 ppm TLV-STEL. In addition to this, A3 carcinogen and ototoxicant notations were also adopted for styrene. In addition, several factors such as increasing environment and health concerns and limiting use of plastic material across the globe is expected to hamper the growth of the styrenics market throughout the forecast period. The pandemic also brought a negative impact on the automotive industry, construction, and consumer industry which led to decline in the demand for styrenics market growth for a short span of time.
