Market Dynamics -

Augmenting demand from burgeoning automotive & packaging industries drives a larger share of the market. Over recent years, the packaging industry is making quite a stride worldwide due to the improvements in packaging solutions. EPS materials, due to their cost-effectiveness, convenience, and versatile nature, are increasingly used as unique packaging solutions. Usages of EPS increases in the packaging of fresh goods and produces on account of the high demand for vegetables, egg trays, fish, poultry, and fast foods.

Additionally, EPS is predicted to witness the increasing consumption in commercial and residential construction activities for applications such as roofs, walls, and other structures. On the other hand, price volatility and the demand-supply gap in raw materials required for EPS production is a major factor expected to act as an impeder for market growth. Nevertheless, the cost-competitiveness of expanded polystyrene as compared to its substitute, extruded polystyrene, would support the market growth.

Other factors fostering the growth of the market include towering demand from end-user industries, growth within the global thermoplastic market.

In contrast, problems associated with cost, unfamiliar processing, design issues, and competition from alternatives are likely to undermine the growth of the market. Meanwhile, rigorous R&D activities aimed at overcoming the shortcomings of Expanded Polystyrene is expected to yield positive results which would further enhance the growth of the global Expanded Polystyrene Market.

Industry/Innovation/ Related News: 

May 22, 2020 --- Agilyx Corporation (the US), a leading player in the chemical recycling of post-use plastics, announced its collaboration with Oregon Metro (Metro - the US), a regional government group, to pilot a polystyrene foam collection program. Agilyx is engaged in converting waste plastic into synthetic crude oil. It uses the chemical recycling process to convert post-use plastics back into polymers, chemicals, and low carbon fuels.

Through this program, The Polystyrene foam (EPS) will be collected at the Metro South Transfer Station and recycled back to new material using Agilyx's technology. Agilyx will pre-process the collected EPS and ship it to Regenyx, a joint venture between Agilyx and Americas Styrenics, an advanced recycling facility. The Metro South Transfer Station will begin accepting clean Expanded Polystyrene foam (EPS) packaging in their recycling area.
