India Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene (ABS) Market: Plant Capacity, Production, Operating Efficiency, Demand & Supply, End Use, Distribution Channel, Region, Competition, Trade, Customer & Price Intelligence Market Analysis, 2015-2030

The demand for Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene (ABS) grew at an impressive CAGR during 2015-2019 and is expected to achieve to a healthy CAGR of over 6.45% in the forecast period. Acrylonitrile-butadiene-styrene (ABS) is a copolymer plastic containing Styrene, Butadiene and Acrylonitrile supreme properties of ABS make it a profound choice in the electrical and electronic sector for the jacketing of wires and manufacturing of appliances. ABS is a highly preferred material in the automotive industry for auto braking system and various other parts owing to its high thermal insulation and superior strength. The demand for ABS after witnessing a huge increment due to the implementation of new vehicle legislation act in April 2019 has lingered consecutively after the outbreak of Coronavirus in India in the final quarter of FY 20. The indefinite lockdown implemented in the country has compelled its major end user industries like automotive and electronics to shut their production units in compliance to the preventive measures of Coronavirus. However, this downturn in demand for ABS and other polymers is anticipated to recover considerably by the end of FY 21 as the Indian market is keener to rely on domestic production after immense damage caused by the unavailability of material due to supply chain disruption. Government’s initiative to promote the domestic production of consumer goods and feedstock in the coming years is expected to be a sliver lining for the manufacturers eyeing to widen their profit margins. In addition to this, extensive use of ABS in the production of inhalers and other medical equipment is likely to emerge as the potential segments to push India ABS market during the forecast period.
In India, ABS is being manufactured by Bhansali Engineering and Ineos Styrolution with a total capacity of around 360KTA.Since these are the only players operating in India ABS Market, they contribute to a market share of approximately 75 per cent in satisfying the overall demand.

The rest of the demand is met through cheaper imports from China and South Korea.Although the market prompts incredible opportunities for growth after the government’s initiative of self-reliant India, entry of new players in the Indian market is still a tough deal as there are certain complexities and high capital investment involved in the manufacturing of ABS.

However, considering the surge in consumption of ABS, INEOS Styroluton in 2017 proposed to double its existing capacity in the next five years.
As ABS is manufactured by co-polymerization of Acrylonitrile, Butadiene and Styrene.Supply of ABS in the Indian market is significantly dependent upon the production and availability of these three feedstocks.

In India, consumption of ABS is perceived to vary with regions too. North and South regions in India account for major consumption of ABS due to the presence of large number of end-user industries and vivid distribution channel.
