The North American polystyrene market, along with its end products, has witnessed a linear growth in the past few years and this growth is estimated to increase in the coming years. Polystyrene is a hard, brittle, and transparent synthetic resin produced by the polymerization of styrene. It is used in a wide range of applications such as building and construction, electrical and electronic appliances, consumer goods, and packaging. Polystyrene is a relatively inexpensive and light weight material. These major features create an upsurge in the demand for polystyrene, and the industrialization and growth in the plastic and rubber industry will be the key influencing factors for the North Amrican polystyrene market with the increased emphasis on its different applications.

 

The polystyrene market is witnessing enormous growth which is expected to continue in the near future, mainly driven by the highly growing Asia-Pacific, Europe, and North America and there have also been intense efforts at country level to promote recyclable polystyrene. Considerable amount of investments are made by different market players to serve the end-user applications in the future. The Asia-Pacific region is the main polystyrene market that accounted for approximately 38% market share of the total global demand in 2013. The North American region is further expected to register a high growth in the future, mainly due to the high growth potential of the plastic and rubber market.

 

Almost 40% of the total polystyrene demand was for the packaging applications in 2013, with the electronics and appliances industry also being the fastest-growing end-use segment, primarily due to high penetration in all the regions.

 

The drivers of the industry are: increasing demand from end-user industries, growing demand from the plastic and rubber industry, and lack of alternative sources

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

 

The North American polystyrene market is growing rapidly due to increasing GDP in the economy and industrialization. The demand of polystyrene is continuously influenced by the government regulations. It is preferred by many industries, as it is relatively inexpensive and a light weight material. Since 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 North American polystyrene market, in terms of value, is projected to reach $5,730 million by 2018 from $4,443 million in 2013, at a CAGR of 5.2% during the same period. Industrialization, growth of the plastic and rubber industry, and lack 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 are estimated to restrain the market growth in the coming years.

 

Based on applications, the polystyrene market is segmented as packaging, electronics, appliances, construction, and other. Packaging accounts for the maximum share of the polystyrene market, in terms of value. It was estimated to be $1675 million in 2013 and is projected to reach to $2143 million in 2018, at a CAGR of 5.1%. The electronics and appliances are growing at CAGR 6% and 5.7%, respectively.

 

Based on countries, the U.S., Canada, and Mexico account for the maximum share of polystyrene market. The U.S. registers a share of $3,544 million in terms of value in 2013 and is projected to reach to $4,555 million by 2018, at a CAGR of 5.1%. The CAGR for Canada and Mexico are 5.9% and 5.3%, respectively.

 

The key participants operating in the North American polystyrene market are Styrolution Petrochemicals (Germany), TOTAL Petrochemicals (France), Farmosa Plastic Corporation(Taiwan), BASF SE (Germany), and Trinseo (U.S.). Other players in this market include Americas Styrenics (Texas, U.S.), Ineos Nova LLC (Illinois), and Unigel Quimica S.A. De C.V. (U.S.).
