North America ABS demand-supply, Kilotons (2005-2025)

Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene (ABS) is a thermoplastic resin manufactured by co-polymerizing acrylonitrile (AN), butadiene (BD) and styrene (S) monomers. ABS copolymers exhibit better toughness; temperature stability and solvent resistance properties in comparison to high impact polystyrene. ABS compounds are commercially available in many forms and grades including medium and high impact, high gloss, UV stabilized, flame retardant, heat resistant, low gloss, glass-fiber reinforced and transparent.
ABS is one of the widely used engineering plastic and has witnessed a significant growth since 2005 on account of its increasing demand in major end-use industries such as automotive and electrical & electronics, especially in Asia-Pacific and other developing regions.
Replacement of traditional materials like metals, inter polymer substitution, growth in purchasing power of developing economies are some of the key drivers for ABS demand.

China is the largest market for ABS. The country is heavily dependent on imports and has also witnessed a number of capacity expansions since 2006.
BS has been available since 1940’s and undergone various capacity additions post commercialization. Due to oversupply scenario especially in Asia-Pacific region, global operating rate has been decreasing and has averaged to 70% in 2016. Total ABS consumption of North America was around 750 kilo tons in 2016. US is the major consumer in North America followed by Mexico. The country has witnessed growth rates in the range of 1-3% since the past few years.
Significant demand of ABS is from emerging economies such as China and Brazil. Some New projects and capacity additions have been announced in the Middle East region. Jam Petrochemical is planning to bring its 200 Kilo tons Assaluyeh ABS plant online by 2019.
The major players in the ABS market are LG Chemical, INEOS, Chi Mei, Formosa Chemicals & Fibers and SABIC. Other manufacturers of ABS include Bhansali Engineering Polymers Ltd., Trinseo, Styrolution, and IRPC.

Global Butadiene Market Overview
Global butadiene demand was estimated to be around 12296 kilo tons in 2018. The global butadiene market has grown at an average of 3.2% from 2014 to 2018 mainly due to strong demand from butadiene derivatives like Styrene Butadiene Rubber (SBR), Polybutadiene Rubber (PBR), Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene (ABS) and others in the Asia-Pacific region. The global butadiene market was impacted by the economic meltdown in 2008-2009. The demand declined during
Thermoplastic Copolyester (TPC) Elastomers Market Research Report, 2005-2025
Thermoplastic Elastomers (TPE) are versatile class of plastics exhibiting properties of both plastic and rubber. With its exceptional physical, mechanical and dynamic properties Thermoplastic Copolyesters (TPCs) have increasingly solidified their place as substitutes for metals and rubbers in many high strength applications. TPCs possess thermoplastic behavior with structural strength showing high resistance to impact and flex fatigue. These properties make thermoplastic copolyester elastomers suitable for various precision applications. It is
Fluorocarbon elastomers (FKM) over capacity and low operating rates in China
The global demand for fluoroelastomers was estimated to be around 26 kilo tons in 2017, growing between 3-4% since 2010. Fluorocarbon Elastomer (FKM) is the dominant fluoroelastomer accounting for more than 85% of the global fluoroelastomer consumption and it still remains a single largest driver for growth. Other fluoroelastomers include fluorosilicone and perfluoroelastomers. Asia Pacific is the biggest consumer followed by North America and Western Europe. Historically, FKM has been
Turbo Charged Engines to drive ACM demand?
About Polyacrylate Rubber (ACM) ACM is used in automotive applications such as hoses, seals, gaskets, dampers and constant velocity joints (CVJ). Other applications include electrical transmission seals, industrial hoses and adhesives. ACM is cost competitive rubber with slightly lower performance than its immediate competitor AEM (Ethylene Acrylate Elastomer). Hence, it can be used where the performance can be compromised to achieve better economy. Other high-end competitors include flouroelastomers (FKM and
