Key Market Trends

Styrene Production to Dominate the Market

  • Styrene production will have a positive influence on ethylbenzene market demand. Styrene is a precursor to several industrial polymers, including acrylonitrile-butadiene-styrene, polystyrene, styrene-butadiene elastomers and latex, styrene-acrylonitrile resins, and unsaturated polyester.
  • The aforementioned styrene-based polymers, elastomers, and resins find a wide range of applications in various end-user industries, such as electronics, packaging, agriculture, petrochemicals, and construction.
  • Polystyrene is majorly used in disposables, packaging and low-cost consumer products. Packaging applications, such as containers, lids, closures, and vending cups are the key end-uses for polystyrene.
  • Expandable polystyrene beads are majorly used in food and beverage packaging, cushion packaging and insulation. Enhanced grades of resins are used in higher performance applications, including home electronics and appliances.
  • Styrene acrylic emulsions offer excellent adhesion, gloss development, and water resistance in buildings and deck enamels, thus, boosting the demand for ethylbenzene in the production of styrene.

Asia-Pacific Region to Dominate the Market

  • The Asia-Pacific region dominated the global market share in 2018. With growing construction and packaging industries, and increasing application as solvent and reagents in paints and coatings, dyes, perfumes, inks, and synthetic rubber in countries, such as China, India, and Japan, the usage of ethylbenzene has been increasing in the region.
  • In January 2018, construction of a USD 6.8 billion crude oil refinery and petrochemical complex commenced in Barmer, Rajasthan, India by Hindustan Petroleum Corporation Limited (HPCL) and Rajasthan Refinery Limited (HRRL). More petrochemical projects are coming up in Asia-Pacific, which is expected to create new demand for ethylbenzene in the coming years.
  • With ncreasing investments in public infrastructure, renewable energy, infrastructure, and commercial projects, the construction sector is expected to record growth at a moderate pace over the next five years, thereby, improving both consumer and investor confidence, in turn, stimulating the demand of ethylbenzene over the forecast period.
  • The increasing construction activities, rising automotive production, driven by increasing demand for SUV’s and electric vehicles, and the growth in the pharmaceutical industry are driving the ethylbenzene demand.
  • The aforementioned factors are contributing to the increasing demand for ethylbenzene consumption in the region, during the forecast period.
