Global expanded polystyrene (EPS) is projected to grow from $ 15 billion in 2019 to approximately $ 19 billion by 2025. EPS is an innovative material that offers design and structural integrity to many construction projects. Anticipated growth in global EPS market can be attributed to growing construction and packaging industries in developing countries. Additionally, EPS offers tangible environmental advantages with enhanced energy efficiency, improved quality of indoor environment as well as enhanced durability of buildings and packaged products, which is positively impacting the growth of the market.

Global expanded polystyrene market can be categorized into product type, end-use and region. Based on product type, the white EPS segment is expected to be the largest contributor to global expanded polystyrene market during the forecast period. The thermal resistance of the white matter depends on the density of the finished product. Since the white matter has a closed cellular structure containing merely stabilized air, thus, the thermal resistance of the white matter does not decline with time.

Based on end-use industry, the market has been segmented into packaging, building & construction, automotive, consumer durables and others, wherein the building & construction segment is anticipated to grow at the fastest rate during forecast period, as EPS has ideal physical and mechanical properties for construction.

Regionally, global expanded polystyrene market is segmented in North America, South America, Europe, Asia-Pacific (APAC) and Middle-east & Africa (MEA). Among these regions, APAC is anticipated to continue its dominance in the market during forecast period, as the region is the leading consumer and producer of EPS. Furthermore, the easy availability of low-cost labor and cost-effective and accessible raw materials are increasing the production of EPS in the region, thereby driving the regional market of global expanded polystyrene market.

Some of the leading companies engaged in the production of expanded polystyrene (EPS) globally are Wuxi Xingda New Foam Plastics Materials Co., Ltd., Synthos S.A., BASF SE, Total S.A., Sunpor Kunststoff GmbH, The Ravago Group, Alpek, S.A.B. De C.V., Versalis S.P.A., Nova Chemicals Corporation, Flint Hills Resources, LLC, among others.
