London, UK (PRWEB) March 04, 2014
During 2010-2012, the global expandable polystyrene (EPS) production witnessed sustained growth, increasing from about 5.83 millon tonnes in 2010 to more than 6.33 million tonnes in 2012. In 2012, Asia ranked number one worldwide in terms of EPS production, with the regional production volume being estimated at over 3.87 million tonnes. In the same year, the combined EPS supply volume of the top five EPS producing countries (China, Germany, South Korea, the USA and Taiwan) stood at almost 4.2 million tonnes. Europe was the leading both EPS exporter and importer in 2012.
The world EPS production will likely follow an upward trend in the years ahead, spurred by the increasing demand for the product from its major end-use sectors, as well as new EPS capacity introductions. In 2016, the global EPS supply is anticipated to exceed 7.97 million tonnes.
