Faltering foam: Increased regulation over the sale and use of polystyrene will subdue revenue growth



Abstract

Polystyrene Foam Manufacturing in the US

Over the five years to 2016, the Polystyrene Foam Manufacturing industry has weathered rising raw material costs and stricter regulations concerning the use of polystyrene-based plastic bags, even as levels of consumer spending and downstream construction industries have gradually improved. Over the next five years, even as subdued revenue growth continues, industry consolidation may be on the horizon for the industry. While expansion in residential and commercial construction industries will likely spur purchases of construction polystyrene, increased regulation over the sale and use of polystyrene will continue to pose a threat to industry manufacturers.

This industry produces a wide range of polystyrene foam products that include the following: expanded polystyrene (EPS) for food containers and cups; foam ice chests and other packaging; and insulation goods. The industry’s products are used by a wide range of downstream industries in the construction, manufacturing and hospitality sectors.

This report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecasts, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
