Polystyrene is a hard and transparent synthetic resin produced by the polymerization of styrene. It has a wide range of applications in various industries, such as in food-service industry for rigid trays and containers, disposable utensils, and foamed cups, plates, and bowls. It is also used in manufacturing of appliances and in consumer electronics and construction industry. Polystyrene is also blended/copolymerized with other polymers to provide rigidity and hardness to a number of plastic and rubber products.

 

The polystyrene market is growing owing to the increasing GDP industrialization. The demand of polystyrene is influenced by government regulations. It is preferred by several industries as it is a relatively inexpensive and lightweight material. As many different grades of polystyrene are available in the market; the key players are increasingly focusing on offering the best implementation and aftersales services in order to gain a competitive advantage.

 

The Europe polystyrene market, in terms of value, is projected to reach $5,518.8 million by 2019 from $4,494.2 million in 2014, at a CAGR of 4.2% between 2014 and 2019. Industrialization, growth of plastic and rubber industry, and non-availability of alternative sources are some of the key factors driving the market growth. On the other hand, preference to organic materials and environmental impacts of using polystyrene may restrain the market growth in coming years.

 

Based on applications, the polystyrene market is segmented into packaging, electronics, appliances, construction, and other applications. Packaging holds the maximum share of the polystyrene market. It was valued at $1,691.7 million in 2014, and is projected to reach to $2,060.7 million by 2019, at a CAGR of 4.0%. The electronics and appliances segments are growing at 5.0% and 4.7% respectively.

 

Germany has the maximum share in polystyrene market. The Germany market was valued at $3,042.9 million in 2014 and is projected to reach to $3,757.0 million by 2019, at a CAGR of 4.3%.

 

The key participants operating in polystyrene market are Styrolution Petrochemicals (Germany), Total Petrochemicals (France), BASF SE (Germany), and Trinseo (U.S.). Other players in this market include Americas Styrenics (U.S.), and Ineos Nova LLC (U.S.).
