Key Market Trends

Rising Demand from Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene (ABS) Application

  • Acrylonitrile butadiene styrene (ABS) is a thermoplastic that provides a diverse combination of properties, like resistance to chemicals, heat, and impact.
  • The consumption rate of ABS resins is increasing in the consumer appliances segment, the largest end-user segment, which accounts for about 40% of the global ABS resin consumption.
  • The second-largest end-user is the electrical and electronics industry, which accounts for approximately 25% of the overall consumption.
  • The automotive industry accounts for about 12% of the global ABS resin consumption.
  • Due to its superior properties, such as strength and durability at low temperatures, it is widely used in the automotive and electronics industries.
  • Moreover, as ABS is lightweight in nature, its demand runs parallel to the demand for lightweight automobile. 
  • Additionally, growing developments in 3D printing, around the world, are also projected to increase the scope of application for ABS, in the near future.

China to Dominate the Demand in the Asia-Pacific Region

  • In the recent years, China has become a global industrial and manufacturing hub. The increase in the manufacturing of electrical and electronics appliances in China, over the years, has resulted in increased demand for acrylonitrile in the country.
  • The Chinese market is expected to witness faster growth, in comparison to other countries, owing to the significant increase in the per-capita income of the middle-class population, and the resultant increase in the sales of consumer goods in the region.
  • The appliance market in China is likely to continue to grow as the middle-class population grows, since this group purchases more consumer durable electronic goods that use ABS resins.
  • China is the global leader in the electric car market. The Chinese government is providing strong financial and non-financial incentives, to boost the electric cars sales.
  • Furthermore, countries, such as India and Japan, have also been contributing to the growth of the market studied. This is expected to further drive the demand for the acrylonitrile market, over the forecast period.
