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.
