Polystyrene is a thermoplastic polymer, synthesized by polymerization of styrene monomer. Raw materials for styrene synthesis include ethylbenzene and benzene. Polystyrene melts when heated above its melting temperature and becomes rigid when allowed to cool. This property is used in the manufacture of different components using extrusion, molding and vacuum forming. Expandable polystyrene (EPS) is a type of polystyrene that is expanded with the help of air and fused together to form blocks. The quantity of beads used in blocks determines the density of blocks. Properties of EPS include rigidity, lightness in weight, excellent thermal insulation and relatively cheap. Other forms of polystyrene include extruded polystyrene (XPS), general purpose polystyrene (GPPS) and high impact polystyrene (HIPS).

Growing demand from packaging industry in BRICS nations and global consumer electronics industry is expected to fuel the growth of the global polystyrene & EPS market. Volatility in prices of raw materials and availability of high performance substitutes is anticipated to hamper market growth during the forecast period. Recycling of polystyrene is likely to create opportunities for the players in the market.
