    Market Scope & Segmentation

    Specialty polystyrenes are the types of polystyrenes that are fabricated for high-performance applications. These are designed with special raw materials and additives with advanced production techniques with enhanced properties. Specialty polystyrenes are composed of less dense individual cells and their cross-linked nature provides better strength-to-weight ratio than polystyrene. Polystyrene is a solid or foamed synthetic hydrocarbon polymer made up of monomer styrene.

    Specialty polystyrenes are used in various end-use industries, such as building & construction, automotive & transportation, protective packaging, electrical & electronics, healthcare, and others.
