“The expanded polystyrene market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 5.1%from2017to2022”

The expanded polystyrene market is projected to reach USD 18.97 billion by 2022,at a CAGR of 5.1% from2017to2022. The market is mainly driven by the growing construction and packaging industries in emerging countries. However, volatility of crude oil prices and availability of high-performance substitutes may restrain the growth of the market.

“White expanded polystyrene is a major product type driving the expanded polystyrene market”

White expanded polystyrene is rigid and closed-cell foam plastic. It has persistent thermal properties, stable dimensions for varied end use, excellent mechanical properties, and recyclable and non-corrosive characteristics. It is a common practice to insulate buildings using typical white expanded polystyrene.

White expanded polystyrene is an excellent material in packaging and construction applications, since it is a light yet rigid foam with good thermal insulation and high impact resistance. Owing to the growing environmental concerns, white expanded polystyrene packaging products are being preferred, as white expanded polystyrene is eco-friendly and lightweight. Further more, it insulates better, keeps food fresher longer, and costs less.

“Rising demand in the Middle East & Africa is a major driver for the expanded polystyrene market“

The Middle East & Africa is expected to witness moderate significant growth in the coming years. Transportation, power, construction, and infrastructure are expected to emerge as the key sectors in the region. Several leading global players have established their manufacturing plants in the Middle East & Africa to cater to the growing demand in this region.
