DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Research and Markets has announced the addition of the "Global Ethylbenzene Market - Segmented by End-User Industries, Application and Geography - Trends and Forecasts (2016 - 2021)" report to their offering.
Ethylbenzene is mainly used for the production of styrene, which is a precursor to various industrial polymers such as polystyrene, acrylonitrile-butadiene-styrene, styrene-acrylonitrile resins, styrene-butadiene elastomers and latex and unsaturated polyester resins. Ethylbenzene, in the form of these polymers and others, finds application in various end-user industries such as packaging, electronics, construction, agriculture and petrochemicals.
The ethylbenzene market is mainly driven by an increase in the styrene demand in developing economies and its growing application in the expanding synthetic rubber and other end-user industries. The growing use of ethylbenzene for natural gas recovery is also expected to boost the market. However, long-term exposure to ethylbenzene is harmful, leading to strict regulations on its use. The highly fluctuating prices for raw materials are also affecting the market adversely.
The ethylbenzene markets major application is the production of styrene; wherein, nearly all of ethylbenzene is used for this purpose. Other smaller uses include its use as an anti-knocking agent in gasoline, which is gradually gaining prominence. It is also being used for the production of diethylbenzene, for recovery of natural gas, as a solvent in paint and as a constituent of asphalt and naphtha.
