Polystyrene Market to Worth US$ 56.5 Billion by 2033 | Accelerating CAGR of 5%: Fact.MR Study

New research report by Fact.MR says that growing use of polystyrene in the packaging and construction sectors is expected to fuel market growth over the coming years.

Rockville, Jan. 24, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The global polystyrene market is projected to advance at a CAGR of 5% over the next ten years, according to data provided by Fact.MR, a market research and competitive intelligence provider. The market is predicted to reach a value of US$ 56.5 billion by 2033-end.

Polystyrene is a synthetic thermoplastic material that is formed by polymerizing styrene. Commonly, it is used in various sheet materials, foams, and modeled products. It can be melted at a high temperature for extrusion or molding and then re-solidified. Extruded polystyrene (XPS), general-purpose polystyrene (GPPS), expandable polystyrene (EPS), and high-impact polystyrene (HIPS) are key types of polystyrene. Expandable polystyrene is a lightweight, tough, and rigid thermoplastic product and is good for the construction and packaging industries.

Polystyrene is used in different industries, such as the construction industry, consumer industry, packaging industry, pharmaceuticals, thermal insulation, electronics, and automotive industry. In addition, it also finds applications in flexible packaging, seating, rigid packaging, and HVAC insulation.

Recently, there has been a noteworthy increase in the demand for packaged products, especially in emerging economies, including India and some others. A noticeable increase in the size of the middle-class population along with rising consumption of agricultural products, processed foods, meat, and poultry is also predicted to fuel the demand for numerous packaging solutions, which will bolster target market growth.

Stringent regulations related to the use of plastic materials are one of the key restraints against the expansion of the global polystyrene market. There are certain products, which are used in the production of polystyrene that can be hazardous for human beings. The manufacturing procedures involve some reactions that might be dangerous if not controlled carefully. Government regulators and agencies are strictly assessing and managing the risks that are involved in the manufacturing and application of polystyrene. The majority of cities in the United States have taken initiative to ban polystyrene products from different schools and some other civic buildings.

For instance,

  • The US Interior Department, in June 2022, announced to ban on the sale of different single-use plastic on national parks and public lands by 2032. Further, an ordinance has also been passed by the Integrated Waste Management Authority to ban polystyrene in the San Luis Obispo Country.

Manufacturers of polystyrene are instructed to be compliant with a few complex rules that govern the manufacturing, handling, labeling, shipping, and storage of these products. These factors can lead to increased compliance costs for producers and thus restrict market growth.
