Global Polystyrene Foam Market: Overview

Polystyrene is a synthetic aromatic polymer extracted from materials like monomer styrene. It is also referred to as plastic that is used in a diverse range of applications for various functions. It is primarily used in rigid items like coat hangers, printer cartridges, refrigerators, crispers, and others. Polyester foam is basically a polystyrene derivative also called expanded polystyrene. Polystyrene foam is utilized in the protective packaging of products and appliances like panel insulation, meat trays, and insulated disposable cups. It is a good thermal insulator that is also utilized in building insulation materials like structure insulated building systems and insulating concrete foam. Polystyrene foam facilitates excellent damping properties and is thereby utilized in the packaging of food and beverages products.

Global Polystyrene Foam Market: Growth Factors

The high demand for polystyrene foam from the building and construction sector is one of the primary reasons fuelling the growth of the global polystyrene foam market. Furthermore, there is high demand for sustainable building options. Also, the green building market is expected to be the fastest-growing sector worldwide. However, to get the green building certification, a project must fulfill the required measures like resource & energy efficiency, utilization of sustainable building material, and several others. Polystyrene products can be easily renewed by the recycling processes. The EPS utilized in the packaging and insulation process is inert, non-toxic, and is manufactured without the use of chlorofluorocarbons. Therefore, it has reduced the negative impact on the environment as compared to other materials. It is also undergoes photolysis.

Polystyrene foam is a good thermal insulator and therefore plays a crucial role in overcoming several issues regarding insulation in construction like insulating concrete foam. The growing demand for protective packaging is likely to create several lucrative growth opportunities in the global market in the forthcoming years. The food and beverage sector is growing at exponential rates and is likely to dominate the global market with rising demand for packaging materials for easy transportation of food and beverage products. The growing research and development activities by the manufacturers to launch advanced polystyrene foam products in the market will also accentuate the market growth.

Global Polystyrene Foam Market: Segmentation

The global polystyrene foam market can be segmented into applications, types, and regions.

By application, the market can be segmented into packaging, building & construction, and others. The building & construction segment holds the largest share in the global polystyrene foam market due to the growing applications of polystyrene foam in the sector. Moreover, it is utilized in all sectors including industrial, institutional, commercial, residential, and civil engineering applications.

By type, the market can be segmented into extruded polystyrene and expanded polystyrene. However, both of the forms offer finished goods with outstanding performance and properties. But, the expanded polystyrene segment accounts for the largest share in the global polystyrene foam market due to its durability, lightweight, and strength. Furthermore, it is less expensive than the extruded polystyrene.
