Global Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene Market (ABS) - New Industry Research Report Published by Transparency Market Research

Albany, New York (PRWEB) March 08, 2013

The major factor driving ABS consumption is the increasing demand from end user applications such as automobiles, appliances and consumer goods. ABS is one of the leading engineering plastics and is increasingly finding usage across a host of industries. There has been a shift in preference towards consumers demanding higher fuel economy in automobiles. Reduction in automobile weight is a primary facet in this regard and the increased use of plastic is inevitable. ABS is used in a variety of automotive applications like trims, panels and coatings among others which is expected to increase its demand over the next six years.

China is expected to remain the largest regional market for ABS and is estimated to account for roughly 61% of the global demand by 2018. Low labor and operating costs in China, have forced a considerable number of multinational manufacturing companies to shift their manufacturing units to China. The country is also the world's largest automobile manufacturing nation and consumes huge volumes of plastics, of which ABS is an essential part.

However, ABS faces the threat of being substituted by other thermoplastics, particularly polypropylene and polystyrene. Both these plastics have excellent properties and are increasingly being used as substitutes to ABS in automobile and consumer goods applications. In addition, ABS comprises of monomers that are hazardous and have serious exposure impact on humans and the environment. These factors could act as major inhibitors for the market and could hamper the demand for ABS over the coming years.

ABS demand is dominated by appliance applications, which accounted for over 32% of overall ABS volumes in 2011. However, automotive and consumer goods are fast growing applications of ABS and are expected to gain a substantial market share over the next six years.
