Overview of the global styrenics market

Market research analysts at Technavio predict that in terms of volume, the global styrenics market will grow steadily at a CAGR of close to 5% by 2021. This market research analysis identifies the strong demand from the automotive industry as one of the primary growth factors for this market. Styrenics are used in the automotive industry for the interior, exterior applications, and in high-gloss exterior parts such as B-pillars, front grills, rear-view mirrors, rear lights, exterior panels, and trims. Additionally, the styrenic materials are also used in front grill applications, either unpainted, electroplated, or painted.  Styrenics are substituting standard plastics and conventional elastomers in automotive applications. With the increasing number of automobiles, this growing application of styrenics will significantly boost the growth of this global market during the forecast period.

The increase in infrastructural developments in emerging economies is one of the latest trends that will gain traction in the styrenics market in the coming years. The emerging economies are focusing on infrastructural developments and long-term projects. The demand for high-quality styrenics resins from end-use segments, such as construction, wind energy, packaging, and automotive sectors, is progressing steadily due to the rising investment in infrastructural development and construction projects, which in turn, will boost the overall growth of the styrenics market.
