The latest report by IMARC Group, titled “Styrene Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity, and Forecast 2023-2028,” finds that the global styrene market size reached US$ 6.6 Billion in 2022. Styrene, also known as ethenylbenzene, cinnamene, vinylbenzene, and phenylethylene, is a colorless, organic compound that is highly volatile, flammable, and insoluble in water. It is produced by alkylating benzene with ethylene and deployed as an intermediate in the synthesis of materials used for manufacturing other copolymers. It is also utilized in the manufacturing of latex, synthetic rubbers, and polystyrene resins and derivatives, such as polystyrene (PS), styrene-acrylonitrile (SAN), styrene-butadiene elastomers, acrylonitrile-butadiene-styrene (ABS), styrene-butadiene rubber (SBR), and unsaturated polyester resin (UPS). Nowadays, styrene is gaining immense traction across the globe due to its unique characteristics, such as toughness, high performance, and versatile design.
Global Styrene Market Trends:
The market is primarily driven by the rising adoption of styrene in the packaging industry due to the growing need for customized packaging solutions and the escalating demand for consumer goods across the globe. Styrene is widely utilized in the packaging of fruits, meat, milk, and other food items to decrease product weight, prevent damage, extend shelf life, preserve product color, taste, and texture, and provide resistance to moisture. In addition, the increasing construction activities in commercial and residential areas and the growing use of energy-efficient insulation materials in the construction industry are contributing to the market growth. Moreover, various government agencies are taking initiatives to encourage the use of eco-friendly materials and minimize carbon footprints which is escalating the demand for styrene, representing another major growth-inducing factor. Along with this, the significant expansion of the automotive sector surged the demand for styrene to produce several components of vehicles such as doors, window profiles, tires, belts, and gaskets which is providing a thrust to the market growth. Furthermore, extensive research and development (R&D) activities and mergers and acquisitions (M&A) among key market players are also creating a favorable market outlook. Looking forward, IMARC Group expects the market value to reach US$ 9.7 Billion by 2028, exhibiting a CAGR of 6.4% during the forecast period (2023-2028).
