The growing usage in end-use industries coupled with the inclination of consumers towards a luxurious lifestyle has propelled the market growth. Furthermore, increasing demand for the productin automotive, construction, electronics, and other major end-use industries is likely to fuel the global styrenic polymer market growth. Furthermore, increasing scope for styrenic polymer in medical devices, manufacturing, and packaging is anticipated to uplift the market growth. One of the noted developments in the Styrenic polymer market is the creation of a new world-class styrene monomer plant by INEOS Styrolution, which will use low-cost feedstock and energy from shale gas.

Moreover, the Novodur and Lunar product launches for cosmetic packaging and Styrolux and Styroflex for food packaging by Styrolution are likely to offer substantial opportunities in cosmetic and food industries, respectively, during the review period. However, the product is considered as a potential health hazard by various associations, such as The International Agency for Research on Cancer and the U.S. National Toxicology Program, which may challenge the market growth. Fluctuation in raw material costs is likely to challenge the market growth, for instance, BASF increased prices of the styrene-butadiene, styrene-acrylic, and acrylic latex polymers in North America in year 2016.
