Report Description<br />

<strong>Exp<strong>and</strong>able</strong> polystyrene (EPS) is a thermoplastic resin that contains an exp<strong>and</strong>ing agent. It is<br />

used in various applications ranging from food packaging to electrical coatings <strong>and</strong> medical<br />

supplies. It is environment-friendly as it does not involve any halogen during its production<br />

process. The global exp<strong>and</strong>able polystyrene market is growing at an exponential rate as it caters<br />

to the dem<strong>and</strong> of various industry verticals through sustainable development. <strong>Exp<strong>and</strong>able</strong><br />

polystyrene has an added advantage over moulded pulp. Moulded pulp, though recyclable,<br />

requires a certain amount of natural gas in the drying process, <strong>and</strong> it naturally weighs more,<br />

resulting into increased packaging <strong>and</strong> transportation cost. On the other h<strong>and</strong>, EPS meets most<br />

of the sustainable packaging criteria. It emits less greenhouse gases when compared to moulded<br />

pulp. Taking these benefits into account, governments as well as companies are shifting the<br />

packaging market towards the exp<strong>and</strong>able polystyrene segment. The global exp<strong>and</strong>able<br />

polystyrene market had witnessed 1.5X times growth in between 2000 <strong>and</strong> 2010.<br />

Building & construction, <strong>and</strong> packaging are the two important end-use segment market for<br />

exp<strong>and</strong>able polystyrene. Together, they contribute 95% market share of the global exp<strong>and</strong>able<br />

polystyrene market. The rise in the dem<strong>and</strong> for processed foods is increasing the exp<strong>and</strong>able<br />

polystyrene dem<strong>and</strong>s in the food & beverages industry. In terms of revenue, this industry<br />

accounts for the largest market share in the global exp<strong>and</strong>able polystyrene market. The next<br />

potential segment is building & construction. With major market economies such as China, India<br />

<strong>and</strong> GCC witnessing a major surge in infrastructure investment, the exp<strong>and</strong>able polystyrene<br />

market is set to grow at an accelerated pace. <strong>Exp<strong>and</strong>able</strong> polystyrene has been the prime choice<br />

for the construction of green buildings.

Report Description<br />

It enhances the durability of buildings, <strong>and</strong> finds its application in insulating closed cavity walls<br />

<strong>and</strong> floor insulation. These major economies will see a surge in infrastructure investment in the<br />

coming decades. It is because of this added advantage that market is set to proliferate at an<br />

exponential rate. Another profitable segment is the electronics domain. Capacitors <strong>and</strong><br />

electronic components are the main portions of electronics application segment that will push<br />

the exp<strong>and</strong>able polystyrene market vertically upward at a CAGR of 4.5% between <strong>2014</strong> <strong>and</strong><br />

<strong>2020</strong>. Refrigerators, microwaves, electrical coatings are the major application for EPS in the<br />

electronics segment.<br />

Geographically, the APAC market st<strong>and</strong>s to be the global leader in production <strong>and</strong> consumption<br />

in the EPS market. Almost half of the total global production happens in the APAC region, <strong>and</strong><br />

45% of it is consumed in global emerging economies such as India <strong>and</strong> China. In the APAC<br />

region, China will be the most preferred destination primarily due to the rising dem<strong>and</strong> of<br />

packaging in the food & beverages, <strong>and</strong> electronics industry. China <strong>and</strong> India are the global<br />

leaders in maritime trade. This will boost the packaging industry. China alone accounts for 37%<br />

of the global EPS market in terms of volume. As China has a strong hold in the electronics<br />

segment <strong>and</strong> is a major exporter of electronic devices, the EPS market is set to flourish in<br />

China. India, along with Malaysia <strong>and</strong> Philippines, will be the next major market for EPS<br />

primarily due to heavy infrastructure investment across various industry verticals. Europe<br />

followed by Latin America <strong>and</strong> North America are the other potential markets for EPS. North<br />

America has reached its saturation point in global EPS market <strong>and</strong> therefore its market growth<br />

will be stagnant in coming few years. While Europe will witness a surge in the market due to<br />

the rising dem<strong>and</strong> of pharmaceutical industries, Latin America will be a preferred destination

Report Description<br />

BASF SE, Nova Chemicals Corporation, Synthos S.A, Owens Corning, <strong>and</strong> INEOS Styrenics<br />

are some of the leading manufacturers of EPS.<br />

The global EPS market is set to grow at a moderate CAGR in the coming years. China,<br />

Europe, Brazil <strong>and</strong> India will be the major preferred destinations for the EPS market. Low<br />

weight, durability, moisture resistance, thermal efficiency, shock absorption, versatility<br />

<strong>and</strong> ease of use are some characteristics of EPS which are tempting various industry<br />

verticals to shift base to EPS. Though the EPS market is promising, major restraining<br />

factors are the availability of high performance substitutes including polypropylene <strong>and</strong><br />
