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

Styrene Acrylonitrile resin (SAN) demand in India stood at 119 KTPA in 2018 and is projected to grow at a CAGR of 6.85% during 2015-2030. Significant demand for SAN is observed in various sectors owing to its impressive properties like high rigidity, high heat resistance, and chemical resistance. Increasing demand for Styrene Acrylonitrile in electronic sector for jacketing of air conditioner impellers, dial switches and industrial battery switches on account of its thermal insulation properties is expected to escalate the demand for SAN in India in the forecast period. Moreover, sudden outbreak of Coronavirus in the final quarter of FY 2020 has raised high concerns over improved medical facilities and healthcare services all around the world. Owing to the appreciable usage of Styrene Acrylonitrile in autoclavable devices, medical light diffusers and dental application, the demand for SAN is anticipated to grow considerably on growth in the demand for medical devices due to potential advances in healthcare sector after Coronavirus stress . In addition to this, demand for SAN in packaging applications in cosmetic and food industry to further drive the growth of the Indian SAN market in the forecast period.
Styrene Acrylonitrile is being produced in India by two renowned companies, INEOS Styrolution and Bhansali Engineering Polymers.These domestic manufacturers cater over 60 per cent of the domestic demand of the products while the rest of the demand is met through cheaper imports from China and South Korea.

India is a major importer of Styrene which is a prominent raw material for SAN.Henceforth, availability of Styrene in the domestic market is also a crucial factor in the production and supply of Styrene Acrylonitrile.

Recent proposal to impose anti-dumping duty on imports of Styrene in order to check the material injury of the domestic manufacturers and promote the domestic production of the product can linger the production of its derivatives like SAN and ABS till next fiscal year. However, this reform is likely to benefit the domestic SAN market in the forecast period owing to the easier availability of raw material at a relatively lower price.
In India, North and South region India holds the maximum consumption share of SAN due to presence of large number of end user industries and vast distribution channel.Demand for SAN is further dependent on the yearly production of derivative Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene (ABS).

Proposed plan of capacity expansion of ABS from INEOS Styrolution due to its vivid demand from consumer goods and packaging industry is anticipated to further propel the demand for SAN in the next five years.
