Summary

Table of Contents

The global expanded polystyrene market grew at a CAGR of around 4% during 2015-2020.

Expanded polystyrene (EPS) is a rigid, lightweight cellular plastic material comprising small, hollow spherical balls. It absorbs minimal water, provides low vapor permanence, and can be produced in varying densities and compressive strengths to withstand load and back-fill forces. As compared to the extruded (XPS) foam, EPS is considered a cost-efficient and high performing alternative in many insulation and construction applications. Moreover, it is employed in the manufacturing of trays, plates and fish boxes on account of its thermal resistance and formability.

EPS is an inert material that does not rot and keeps away pests like rats or termites. Consequently, it is used as an insulated panel system for walls, roofs and concrete floors in residential and commercial construction. It is further utilized as void-forming fill material in civil engineering projects as a lightweight fill in road and railway development and as a floatation material in the construction of pontoons and marinas. This, along with a considerable rise in construction activities, represents one of the key factors bolstering the market growth. Apart from this, the shock-absorbing characteristics make EPS ideal for storing and transporting wines, chemicals, electronic equipment and pharmaceutical products. Furthermore, it is gaining traction in the food and beverage (F&B) industry, wherein it is employed to retain moisture and maintain the freshness of perishable products, such as seafood, fruits and vegetables. Besides this, its applications are anticipated to expand in various end use industries, including packaging, decoration works and lifesaving equipment such as life jackets and buoys. Looking forward, the analyst expects the global expanded polystyrene market to exhibit moderate growth during the next five years.
