Global Styrene Market to Grow at a CAGR of 5% During 2021-2026, Aided by the Robust Growth of the Automotive Industry

According to a new report by EMR titled, ‘Global Styrene Market Report and Forecast 2021-2026’, the market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 5% in the forecast period of 2021-2026.

The Asia Pacific region holds a significant share of the market growth owing to rapid industrialisation in countries like India and China. The robust growth of the packaging industry due to evolving consumer preferences and extensive production activities in the area is increasing the use of styrene, which is propelling the market growth. The rising demand for cosmetics and healthcare products in China, Japan, Indonesia, and South Korea, among others, is increasing the use of styrene, hence invigorating the industry growth. Moreover, the region is one of the leading markets of the automotive industry, which uses styrene extensively. The increasing disposable income is surging the usage and demand for consumer electronics, which is also fuelling the growth of the styrene industry.

BASF SE (OTCMKTS: BASFY), one of the leading companies in the market, and Trinseo announced the intention to extend their businesses with the production of styrene based on the circular feedstock in March 2021. Trinseo would use styrene in its Solution Styrene Butadiene Rubber (S-SBR) and polystyrene products to manufacture tires for packaging and other applications. The collaboration is a crucial milestone to aid consumers in reaching their sustainability goals while developing a circular economy. This also is a step with the company’s sustainability goals. The company replaces fossil resources such as naphtha or natural gas with renewable feedstocks derived from organic waste or vegetable oil. This would improve the environmental profile of products. Such initiatives are anticipated to propel the growth of the styrene industry in the forecast period.
