The Polystyrene Foam market is projected to grow from USD 26.4 billion in 2021 to USD 32.2 billion by 2026, at a CAGR of 4.1% between 2021 and 2026. Growing demand from the building and construction industry in APAC is likely to boost the Polystyrene Foam market.

Polystyrene (PS) foams are thermoplastic, closed-cell, lightweight, rigid-foam, moisture-resistant material with high compressive strength and exceptional thermal and acoustic insulation properties.In general, polystyrene foams come in two forms: EPS (Expanded PS) and XPS (Extruded PS).

XPS products can be far more superior to the EPS products when R-value (thermal resistance "per unit area.") is considered. XPS products can outperform EPS products in various aspects such as thermal performance, moisture resistance, and compressive strength.

The building and construction industry is projected to be the largest end-use industry of Polystyrene Foam market.

The building and construction industry is the largest end-use industry segment, in terms of both volume and value, between 2021 and 2026.Polystyrene Foam used in the Building and Construction sector are specially used as insulated panels for walformulated to counter extremely harsh environments such as saltwater, temperature, pressure, and organic formation.

Emerging markets such as China, India, and South Korea, and other countries (which include Malaysia, Indonesia, and Thailand) are the major growth drivers of the APAC market.

EPS is the fastest-growing type of the Polystyrene Foam market.

EPS is the fastest-growing resin segment, in terms of volume, between 2021 and 2026.EPS is a lightweight thermoplastic material with special properties because of its structure that helps protect the product from getting damaged.

The growing building & construction and packaging industries in developing countries are driving the EPS market.EPS is an excellent material for applications in these industries, as it is lightweight yet rigid foam with good thermal insulation and high impact resistance.

However, volatility in crude oil prices and the availability of high-performance substitutes are restraining the market growth. The easy recyclability of polystyrene products is expected to offer opportunities for the growth of the EPS market during the forecast period.
