Polystyrene is one of the basic polymeric raw materials widely used in packaging, electronics, appliances, plastics, and rubber industries. General Purpose Polystyrene (GPPS) is clear, hard, and rather brittle. It is an inexpensive resin per unit weight. The Asia-Pacific region holds the largest share of the global market, owing to the high polystyrene demand from application segments in the region, cheap labor and production costs, and ease of business.

 

The Asia Pacific region is the largest contributor to the global polystyrene market, having accounted for nearly 46% of the global consumption demand in 2013. The region is further expected to show a high growth in the coming years, mainly owing to the high growth potential of the plastic and rubber industries in China, India, and other fast-emerging countries of Asia-Pacific. The Asia Pacific Polystyrene market is driven majorly by three industries, first is the packaging, second electronics and electrical parts and the third consumer appliances. A considerable amount of investments are being made by various market players to serve the end-user applications of this region in the coming years.

 

The major drivers of the industry are high plastic consumption, unavailability of alternate sources, and the increasing penetration within application industries.

 

This study basically aims to estimate the Asia Pacific polystyrene market for 2013 and to project the market values and volumes till 2018. The market research study provides a detailed qualitative and quantitative analysis of the Asia Pacific polystyrene market. Various secondary sources, such as news articles, directories, industry journals, and databases, have been used to identify and collect information useful for an extensive, commercial study of the polystyrene market in Asia-Pacific.

Polystyrene is a synthetic aromatic polymer derived from the polymerization of the monomer styrene. Polystyrene has a very wide range of applications in various industries, including packaging, electronics, and appliances, among others. The general categories of polystyrene copolymers are GPPS and HIPS.  GPPS (General Purpose Polystyrene) is used for manufacturing fast-moving consumer products such as plastic cups and disposable razors, among others. HIPS (High Impact Polystyrene) is demanded by manufacturers to produce covers and parts of electronic and electrical appliances, which are known for its physical properties such as durability, flexibility, and strength. The packaging and insulation industries are in their growth phases in the Asia-Pacific region, thereby offering immense potential for the growth of the Asia-Pacific polystyrene market.

 

The Asia-Pacific region has been, in recent years, witnessing the highest polystyrene demand owing to the manufacturing hubs in China, Japan, Korea, and South-Asian countries. Applications in the packaging and consumer electronics & appliances industries have kept the polystyrene demand at a higher side in the Asia-Pacific region.

 

Polystyrene has numerous applications and it is used as a raw material in one or other form by various companies. A majority of its demand can be observed to be from manufacturers of food & beverage containers, styrofoam cups, polystyrene boxes, and so on. This was due to the demand from end-users and the associated profit margins. The impacts of inhibiting factors such as the ban on use of polystyrene in food & beverage packaging have resulted in the manufacturers retracting from their aggressive growth strategies.

 

The Asia Pacific polystyrene market constituted 40.5% share of the global polystyrene market in terms of revenue in 2013, and is projected to grow at a CAGR of 5.6% from 2013 to 2018. The Asia-Pacific region has its major demand and supply of polystyrene concentrated in the north-eastern region, with China being the largest producer and consumer of polystyrene, followed by Japan, Korea and Australia. A majority of the countries in the region are developing economies, and hence, there is a huge demand for polystyrene-based products from various industries.

 

The major players in the Asia Pacific polystyrene market include Total Petrochemicals (France), Formosa Chemicals & Fibre Corporation (Taiwan), Toyo Styrene Co. Ltd. (Japan), Jiangsu Laidun Baofu Plastifying Co. (China), Korea Kumho Petrochemical Co. Ltd. (South Korea), PS Japan (Japan), Styrolution (Germany), and Chi Mei Corp (Taiwan), among others.
