Growth Drivers & Challenges

As the population increases across the world, the demand of the houses, office and other building & construction related project also increases.  EPS is widely used in buildings for insulation purposes. Further it provides several applications such as roof insulation, floor insulation and others due to its reliable structure and flexibility properties.  Owing to rising adaption of the EPS in building & construction is expected to bolster the growth of the expandable polystyrene market in the upcoming years.

Further, it is also used for the packaging to protect electronics product, food items and other expensive product from the damage. The growing demand of the expandable polystyrene in packaging sector is also envisioned to foster the growth of the expandable polystyrene market across the world over the forecast period. Moreover it is also used in refrigeration, microwaves and other for insulation purposes so they are the major application of the EPS in the electronics.

However, monomers of the expandable polystyrene are petroleum products. Fluctuating cost of the raw material is expected to dampen the growth of the expandable polystyrene market over the forecast period. Further alternatives of EPS have good properties which may also restraint growth of the market.
