Development of Polystyrene Foam Plastics at Home and Abroad

Summary:

Foam plastics as thermal insulation materials for building energy conservation have just begun to be popularized in China, and will surely develop rapidly in the next 10 years. The market prospect of polystyrene foam food container production line is very broad, but the competition is also very fierce.

Polystyrene foam plastics are divided into two types: expansion EPS and continuous extrusion XPS board.

Expandable Polystyrene(EPS)

The industrial production of EPS polystyrene foam food container production line in China started in 1960s. In 1994, the consumption of EPS products was 100,000 tons, and reached 300,000 tons in 1997. The application of EPS in construction accounted for about 50%.

Overview of EPS Plastics Development at Home and Abroad-EPS Consumption Abroad

EPS consumption worldwide has increased by about 5% annually in the past 10 years, reaching 2.120 million tons in 1997, of which 55% is used for construction. Western Europe has the largest proportion of construction applications, accounting for 70% (511,000 tons) of 750,000 tons consumed in 1997. The largest enterprises producing EPS are BASF, D0W, SHELL and BP. The world's annual consumption growth, the proportion of EPS consumption in various regions and the proportion of EPS used in construction are increasing.
