EPS is expected to have the faster growth with an estimated CAGR of 4.7% during forecast period. Expanded polystyrene has been among the largest commodity polymers produced across the globe. In recent years, EPS has been specified for the first layer of construction in passive building construction. With this EPS usage, an advanced building envelope is achieved for attainting the highest ratings.

The packaging segment had more than 30% share in global PS & EPS market in 2017. Polystyrene has been considered as a cost-effective solution for rigid packaging as well as food packaging applications. The product usage in packaging food prevents food spillage and provides thermal insulation during storage of food and refrigerated transportation. These resins reduce weight and cost, and also provide convenience, freshness, information, and the aesthetics essential. The overall PS & EPS market will observe substantial demand in packaging application by 2025.
