Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene (Abs) Capacity Additions to Propel Alpha-Methylstyrene (Ams) Consumption Through 2030

MUMBAI, MAHARASHTRA -- (SBWire) -- 08/12/2020 --Prismane Consulting is pleased to publish its Alpha-methylstyrene (AMS) Market Study Report and Techno Commercial Market Model

Alpha-methylstyrene (AMS) is a colourless organic chemical with an unpleasant odour. Alpha-methylstyrene (AMS) is formed as a co-product in the phenol production process. Alpha-methylstyrene (AMS) is commonly used in a variety of applications to improve product functionality, including acrylonitrile butadiene styrene (ABS), para-cumyl phenol, adhesives & coatings, waxes and others (including, tackifiers, antioxidants and intermediates).

As of 2019, Asia-Pacific was the largest market for Alpha-methylstyrene (AMS). China, Japan, India & South Korea are the major consumers of Alpha-methylstyrene (AMS) in this region. North America was the second-largest market followed by Western Europe. The demand for Alpha-methylstyrene (AMS) is expected to increase in Asia-Pacific owing to rising demand of ABS resins in automotive, electrical & electronics and other applications.

Acrylonitrile butadiene styrene (ABS) is the largest end-use application for Alpha-methylstyrene (AMS) at global level. The ABS industry is expected to witness capacity additions in the mid-term forecast on account of continued use in the automotive and electrical & electronics industry. For instance, Ineos, the world's largest ABS / styrenic polymers manufacturer is scheduled to add 600 kilotons in Eastern China by 2023.

In 2019, Mitsui Chemicals announced a new Alpha-methylstyrene production facility at its Singaporean subsidiary Mitsui Phenols Singapore Pte. Ltd. The new 20kilotons per year Alpha-methylstyrene (AMS) unit is expected to come online by the end of 2020. Key players operational in the Alpha-methylstyrene (AMS) market are INEOS Group, Solvay SA, Taiwan Prosperity Chemical Corp, Domo Caproleuna, Kumho P&B Chemicals, SI Group Inc., Altivia Corp, PKN Orlen, Mitsubishi Chemical Holdings Corporation and Others.
