The global extruded polystyrene market is expected to reach a valuation of USD 3.6 billion by the end of the forecast period from 2018 to 2023, according to the latest research report from Market Research Future (MRFR). The global Extruded Polystyrene Market Share is mainly driven by the growing demand from the construction industry, which is growing rapidly in both developing as well as developed countries. The report provides a thorough background data sheet on the global extruded polystyrene market, including the major drivers and restraints affecting the market’s growth, the leading players operating in the global extruded polystyrene market, and the historical growth trajectory of the market. The future growth prospects of the global extruded polystyrene market are analyzed in great detail in the report in order to provide readers with a clear picture of how the market is likely to grow over the forecast period.
Extruded polystyrene is formed from polystyrene by the process of extrusion, i.e. processing polystyrene to form blocks of uniform width and height. The global extruded polystyrene market is mainly driven by the growing demand from the construction industry, where it is used as an insulation component in a varied range of construction applications. The growing demand for effective insulation materials in construction projects is likely to be the major driver for the global extruded polystyrene market over the forecast period. Insulation materials have become highly important in the construction industry due to the help they provide in terms of lowering the overall energy consumption of the project and protecting the building’s interiors from moisture, heat, and sound. Effective insulation has emerged as a prime factor in creating energy-efficient construction projects, which minimize the costs of energy (i.e. heating or cooling) for the building’s occupants and lower the overall energy bill of the project.
The growing research into expanding the application scope of plastics is likely to be a key driver for the global extruded polystyrene market. Extruded polystyrene is used in various applications in the construction industry as well as other application industries such as electronics production, automobile production, and toys and other household items. These applications are also likely to be crucial for the global extruded polystyrene market over the forecast period.
On the other hand, the adverse environmental effects of the nonbiodegradable extruded polystyrene could present a major barrier for the growth of the global What is Extruded Polystyrene over the forecast period.
Leading players in the global extruded polystyrene market include BASF SE, Kingspan Group, Emirates Extruded Polystyrene LLC, ACH Foam Technologies Inc., Soprema, URSA Insulation SA, Austrotherm, Ravago SA (Ravatherm), Abriso NV, Owens Corning, and DowDuPont.
In February 2019, Ravago acquired the European Styrofoam operations of DowDuPont, including production as well as post-production activities such as sales and marketing, customer service, and supply chain operations.
The global extruded polystyrene market has been segmented on the basis of end-use industry and region.
By end-use industry, the extruded polystyrene market has been divided into residential construction and commercial construction. The commercial construction segment held a majority share of 63% in the global extruded polystyrene market in 2017 and is likely to retain a dominant share in the global market over the forecast period due to the growing demand for commercial construction in emerging economies in Southeast Asia, the Middle East, and Latin America. The growing emphasis on the environmental viability of building structures in these regions is likely to drive the demand from the extruded polystyrene market in the region over the forecast period.
The global extruded polystyrene market is dominated by Asia Pacific due to the rapid pace of growth of the construction industry in countries such as India, China, Malaysia, Australia, and Japan. Rapid urbanization in the region has driven the demand for extruded polystyrene in the region and is likely to remain a major driver for the market over the forecast period. Growing residential construction in Asia Pacific is also likely to be a major driver for the extruded polystyrene market over the forecast period.
