Global Styrene Market, By Type (Polystyrene, Expanded Polystyrene, Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene,

Published Date: | Report Code : CH2058348


Styrene is an organic compound commonly known for ethenylbenzene, vinylbenzene, and phenylethene. The chemical formula of styrene is C6H5CH=CH2 which is a colorless oily organic compound. Styrene is produced by dehydrogenation of ethylbenzene method. It helps in producing latex, synthetic rubber, and other polystyrene resins. Styrene is mostly used in the packaging industry due to its characteristics such as lightweight, durability, flexibility, thermal efficiency, and moisture resistivity. 

It helps in packaging products such as fish, meat, fruits, milk products, processed foods, consumer durables, electronics, horticulture, heavy products, and fragile pharmaceutical products. However, styrene is dangerous when subjected to the atmosphere, it emits toxic vapors and on decomposition generates carbon monoxide, and it can irritate the skin, eyes, respiratory system and nervous system.
