Styrene Market Size to Surpass US$ 71,137Mn by 2028 | CAGR 4.3% Predicted By Acumen Research and Consulting


Global Styrene Market size is estimated to grow a CAGR above 4.3% over the forecast timeframe and reach a market value of around USD $ 71,137million by 2028.

Styrene is named after storax balsam, the resin of Liquidambar trees from the plant family. In some plants and foods such as coffee beans, peanuts, balsam trees, cinnamon and others, styrene occurs naturally in very small amount. It is also found in coal tar. By the process of dehydrogenation and ethyl benzene, around 80% of the styrene can be produced. Styrene also contains other chemicals which gives it a sharp and unpleasant odor.
