Vietnam polystyrene market is anticipated to grow with an impressive 4.5% CAGR value during the forecast years, 2023-2027, on the backbone of rising demands for the consumer electronics Increasing applications of expanded polystyrene for insulation and construction purposes is further driving the growth of the Vietnam polystyrene market in the upcoming five years. Growing development of the infrastructures like roofs, floor, and ceilings for creating an insulated exterior, is also expected to support the growth of the Vietnam polystyrene market in the next five years.

Polystyrene is a polymer made from the monomer styrene. It is a liquid hydrocarbon that is manufactured from petroleum in large quantities. Though the compound is usually in a solid form, it can be melted at high temperature that can then be used for moulding and extrusion, and then resolidified. Expanded polystyrene is much denser than polystyrene. Since the polymer is flexible and versatile, it can be cut into sheets, slabs, or any desired designs that is in accordance with the building or infrastructure code requirements. Through the process of sheathing the polystyrene and expanded polystyrene are used in renovations of the infrastructure, new constructions and for the consumer electronics for its compatibility with wood, steel framing, as well as masonry. The polymer is not used with petroleum based solvents since they can dissolve the polystyrene on contact.

Benefits In Construction Drives Market Growth

Expanded polystyrene is an innovative construction material that aids the structural and design integrity to the infrastructure. Use of EPS has rapidly grown in the recent years. As the growth of construction industry is expanding in the recent past and it is anticipated to grow further in the upcoming five years, the demand for the polymer is expected and is driving the growth of the Vietnam polystyrene market in the upcoming five years. Polystyrene consumption in the country was recorded to be 74 thousand tonnes in the year 2021 that is further expected to grow in subsequent years.

The polymer is also ecofriendly and the surging adaptations to green buildings and growing demands for the increase of environment friendly material for the construction., the demands for polystyrene is anticipated to grow and aid market growth likewise. It offers tangible environmental advantages thus maximizing the energy efficiency of the buildings along with providing better indoor environment quality and enhances durability of the structure and are thus opted for larger infrastructure construction too. Although local production of polystyrene in the country is restricted with a sole producer, Cong Ty TNHH Polystyrene Vietnam. The company currently has a capacity of 40,000 TPA of expandable polystyrene production of which 50% satisfies the local demands and the rest half of the polymer is exported.
