[152 Pages Report] EPS is a plastic foam material that has certain desirable properties because of its structure. It is made by expanding and molding polystyrene beads. Earlier, foaming plastics were used in insulation and flotation devices for boats, life preservers, and buoys. After the invention of EPS, packaging products, such as paper, kapok, and other natural packaging products, have been replaced linearly. The familiarity of EPS was spread due to the enormous growth of the fast-food industry where expanded polystyrene foam (EPF) began to be used in burger boxes and coffee cups.

The global EPS market was estimated to be at 7,992.8 kilotons in 2018 and is projected to reach 10,066.1 kilotons by 2023, at a CAGR of 4.7% between 2018 and 2023. The growth of this market is attributed to the continued growth in the building & construction industry, as it is the largest consumer of EPS as compared to the packaging and other industries.

Expanded Polystyrene Market

Grey EPS to register the highest CAGR in the market

Although white EPS is the largest product type, grey EPS is projected to grow at a higher rate during the forecast period. This growth is attributed to the high consumption of grey EPS in the building & construction industry due to its better thermal insulating properties.

Building & construction to be fastest-growing end-use industry during the forecast period

Building & construction is the largest and the fastest-growing end-use industry of EPS. EPS possesses ideal physical and mechanical properties for most insulating needs. It is an excellent design element, an ideal choice for green building, offers tangible environmental advantages that can maximize energy efficiency, provides improved indoor environmental quality, and enhances durability. These factors make the building & construction industry the largest consumer of EPS.

APAC to dominate the EPS market during the forecast period

APAC has emerged as the leading consumer and producer of EPS due to the increasing demand from the domestic front and rising income levels. The easy availability of low-cost labor and economical & accessible raw materials are increasing the production of EPS in the region, thereby driving foreign investments. APAC is also the largest and fastest-growing EPS market. The government proposals to improve public infrastructure and rising cash-intensive non-residential construction are positively impacting the market growth.

Market Dynamics

Driver: Growing construction and packaging industries in developing countries

EPS is extensively used in the construction industry owing to its closed-air low-thermal conductivity, lightweight (ease of handling), mechanical resistance (insulation in the wall structure and roofs & flooring), low water absorption (to prevent from humidity), and sound resistance (in office and rooms). It has become a powerful design element and an ideal choice for green building. EPS offers tangible environmental advantages that maximize energy efficiency, improve indoor environmental quality, and enhance the durability of the buildings and packaged products.

Restraint: Volatility in crude oil prices

Even though the crude oil price will not affect the end price of EPS to a larger extent, but in the future, any volatility (rise) in EPS price can affect the profitability of styrene producers. Consequent to fluctuations in crude oil prices, styrene producers such as Royal Dutch Shell (Netherlands), The Dow Chemical Company (US), and LyondellBasell Industries N.V. (Netherlands) are increasingly investing in R&D to reduce investment and cut operating costs in a bid to improve their margins. The crude oil prices and growing demand are expected to drive the EPS prices in the near future.

Opportunity: Polystyrene products can be recycled easily

EPS used in insulation and packaging is non-toxic and inert and is made without chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs). It has less impact on the environment than the other competitive materials. However, it is almost indestructible, and the discarded EPS does not biodegrade for hundreds of years. It is also resistant to photolysis. Previously, EPS waste was dumped in landfills, but this trend is now changing, and post-consumer and post-commercial EPS recycling has increased.

More than 100 million pounds of EPS is recycled and reused in both closed-loop and open-loop processes globally to make a variety of durable goods and innovative new building products from recycled content foam packaging. Value-added plastic products, such as crown moldings, picture frames, park benches, movie props, and faux marble and stone manufactured from post-consumer and post-commercial EPS reduces the amount of virgin material needed. New applications are driving the recycling gains, with progress in recycling technology, integrated chain management principles, and collaborative collection programs.

Challenge: Ban on EPS in major markets

In a few major economies, such as the US (New York), the EPS items have been banned. Styrofoam (EPS) cups cannot be recycled as they are already expanded, and to produce these cups, they need virgin polystyrene beads. As EPS materials are not biodegradable, some consumers do not prefer single-use (use and throw) EPS coffee cups.

The banned items include polystyrene foam single-service items, including cups, bowls, plates, take-out containers, trays, polystyrene loose fill packaging, commonly known as packing peanuts. However, there are few exceptions such as EPS containers used for prepackaged food that are filled and sealed prior to receipt by the food service establishment; mobile food store; and containers used to store raw meat, pork, fish, seafood, or poultry sold from a butcher case or similar retail appliance are still in use.
