Global Specialty Polystyrene Resin Market, By Function (Protection, Insulation, Cushioning, Others),

Published Date: | Report Code : MT1958334


Polystyrene is an aromatic polymer that is synthetic. As an essential component of copolymers such as high-impact polystyrene (HIPS) and acrylonitrile butadiene styrene (ABS), it can be created and used. Polystyrene is a low-melting-point thermoplastic resin. It's transparent and low-cost brittle resins. Specialty polystyrene resin is significant polystyrene intended for insulation panels of extruded polystyrene (XPS), polystyrene-oriented sheet (OPS) and the appliance sector. Special raw materials and additives with state-of-the-art production techniques are used to improve the properties of polystyrene resin in the case of specialty polystyrene resins. Specialty polyester resins, therefore, have a broad variety of applications in sectors such as construction & construction, automotive, marine, furnishings, and electronics.

Implementation of stringent public legislation concentrating on building energy-efficient infrastructure and concentrating on reducing greenhouse gas emissions are key drivers of the worldwide polystyrene resin specialty market. Different applications with protective characteristics and thermal insulation technologies are expected to increase demand to drive the worldwide market for specialty polystyrene resin.

Increasing demand for protective characteristics is expected in various sectors such as electrical & electronics, healthcare and packaging to boost the demand for specialty polystyrene resin due to the superior mechanical and chemical strength of resins. In addition, the high strength-to-weight ratio due to the cross-connected structure of a low-density polystyrene structure is projected to increase the demand for low-weight specialty polystyrene resins, particularly in automotive and transmission applications.

Key Factors Impacting Market Growth:

  • High Automotive Application growth
  • Rising demand from construction and packaging industries
  • Easy recyclability of polystyrene products
