Expanded Polystyrene (EPS) comprises polystyrene beads or micro-pellets containing a blowing agent and other additives for foaming. EPS offers excellent features such as insulation properties, durability, lightweight, and excellent processability. It serves applications such as thermal insulation board in buildings, packaging, cushioning of valuable goods, stand-up paddle boards, and food packaging, and so on. The excellent mechanical properties of EPS are rigorously utilized in combination with fast construction/assembly and low subsequent maintenance. Expanded polystyrene helps in energy conservation and is thus essential for the creation of green built spaces. In the last ten years, to improve the energy efficiency of the buildings, the grey EPS material, which have lesser thermal conductivities and also offers better insulation properties than the white EPS, have been developed on the global level.
The drivers identified for the expanded polystyrene market are growing building & construction and packaging industries. In terms of demand, China is the largest market of expanded polystyrene. The market in the Middle East and Brazil are also growing but at a slow pace as compared to the countries in Asia-Pacific.
