Acrylonitrile butadiene styrene is a tough and an extremely durable engineering
plastic that is widely used in several industries. Its properties such as colorfastness,
durability, superlative tensile strength, impact strength, and resistance to chemicals
make it a preferred material for many engineering applications. The growth in the
acrylonitrile butadiene styrene is mainly driven by rising demand from the end user
industries such as consumer goods, appliances, and automobiles. Its demand is growing at a
fast pace as most of the automobile companies are looking out for light weight, but high
performance material to increase vehicles’ fuel efficiency. Using this material for making
trims, panels, and coatings, reduces the vehicle’s weight, thus enabling better fuel

China is the biggest consumer for ABS and is expected to remain so in the coming five
years. The country is expected to account for 61% of global demand by 2018. The reasons
supporting this growth are increasing number of multinationals outsourcing their
manufacturing to China due to low labor costs. As the country takes the baton to be the
leading automobile manufacturer across the globe, its demand of plastics such as ABS is
also adding to the market’s growth. Asian countries such as India, Japan, Korea, and
Taiwan are the next market share holders after China. This region, put together, accounted
for 15% of global market demand in 2011. However, as manufacturing units shift to India
and China, the demand in North America is likely to stagnate in the forecasted period.

The report studies some of the key players in the industry such as LG Chem, Formosa
Plastic Company, Chi Mei Corporation, SABIC, and Styrolution among others.
