Report Digest


Acrylonitrile butadiene styrene (ABS) is an amorphous polymer and opaque thermoplastic which is derived from three distinct monomers and polymerized through the process of emulsion. They are commonly used to make light, rigid, and molded products including pipes, automotive components, machine components, enclosures, wheel covers, and protective head gear. Due to high resistance to corrosive chemicals and physical impact, acrylonitrile butadiene styrene is gaining increasing demand in a wide range of industrial applications. Further, ABS finds application in injection molding manufacturing processes or 3D printing, owing to its low melting point which makes it easy to use in such processes. These are the key factors driving the development of acrylonitrile butadiene styrene (ABS) market.

Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene (ABS) Market Dynamics

Acrylonitrile butadiene styrene is widely used to produce a range of automotive components such as seating, interior trim, center consoles, bumper, dashboard, headliners, lighting, and others. Growth in automotive industry across the globe along with rising importance of lightweight automobile parts to limit the rate of carbon dioxide emissions is anticipated to be highly impactful on the growth of acrylonitrile butadiene styrene (ABS) market. Moreover, adoption of lightweight component in automobiles has been linked to a number of advantages which is further likely to boost global expansion of the market in the coming years. Increasing purchases of motorbikes, passenger cars, and public transport vehicles will continue to create potential growth prospects of the acrylonitrile butadiene styrene (ABS) market.

Apart from the automotive industry, ABS gains significant adoption in the manufacturing of construction instruments, industry goods, and various equipment which require to achieve lightweight and high tensile strength. Surging demand for acrylonitrile butadiene styrene (ABS) can be attributed to its more durability and better corrosion resistance than conventional products such as PVC. In construction sector, ABS is substantially used in the manufacturing of pipes, vacuum pumps, fitting instruments, and even in the large equipment for the storage of waste materials. Widening application base in various industries is projected to bode well with the growth of acrylonitrile butadiene styrene (ABS) market.
