Key Vendors

The key vendors making a mark in the global acrylonitrile butadiene styrene market include TORAY INDUSTRIES INC. (Japan), Ravago Americas (U.S.), Trinseo (U.S.), KUMHO PETROCHEMICA (South Korea), Formosa Chemicals & Fibre Corp. (Taiwan), SABIC (Saudi Arabia), LG Chem. (South Korea), BASF SE (Germany), Mitsui Chemicals Inc. (Japan), INEOS Styrolution (Germany), among others.

Market Drivers and Top Restraints

The growing use of acrylonitrile butadiene styrene in appliances, consumer goods, construction and automotive ancillaries, on account of its light weight and high strength will be responsible for the positive outlooked showcased by the market in the coming years. Also, one of the main reasons behind the accelerated demand for lightweight automotive materials is the concern over increasing CO2 emissions. As per the International Energy Agency (IEA), the greenhouse gas emissions are predicted to reach 3.1 metric gigatons by the year 2020. This factor is most likely to augment the demand for lightweight parts within the automotive industry, thereby the demand for acrylonitrile butadiene styrene over the next few years.

Moreover, the increasing product demand from the automotive sector in numerous countries such as India, South Korea, Malaysia, and Indonesia will bear good news for the market in the years to come. Adding on, strong sales of passenger cars, motorcycles and commercial cars are also exhibited to promote the market expansion from 2017 to 2023.

Acrylonitrile butadiene styrene (ABS) finds extensive application as automotive interior components like center console, trims, headliners, interior grills, and interior as well as exterior mirrors. The progressively expanding automotive industry across the globe will leave a positive impact on the growth of the market in the next few years.

Market Outline

Market Research Future (MRFR) reports that the Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene Market is striving to attain higher levels of revenue by the end of 2023. The market size will be expanding at a significant growth rate throughout the forecast period (2017-2023).

Market Segmentation

The market for acrylonitrile butadiene styrene is segmented into application, which is sub-segmented into appliances, electrical & electronics, automotive, building & construction, consumer goods, sports equipment, musical instruments, and others. ABS helps provide exceptional insulation as well as impact resistance, on account of which it can be used in household appliances along with consumer goods like control panels, food processors, vacuum cleaners and refrigerator liners. Thus, based on these factors, the appliances segment will be capturing the highest share of the global ABS market, throughout the review period.

Industry News

February 2019 – A team of researchers from Wright State University have recently carried out investigations to analyze the performance of acrylonitrile butadiene styrene under pressure, calculating different responses to speed and temperature, using a MakerBot 2X Replicator 3D printer. The outcome has been positive, with hints towards more failure strengths and yields in the presence of higher temperatures. Moreover, the analysis also depicts that the speed does not influence the mechanical characteristics of the product.
