Market Overview

Rising demand for ABS from the automotive sector

ABS is primarily used for manufacturing components of automobiles such as instrument panels, pillar trim, dashboard components, door liners and handles, seat backs, seat belt components, and others. Currently, the automotive industry is the largest consumer of ABS It is one of the materials that can be used as a substitute for metal components.

Fluctuating crude oil prices

ABS is manufactured by the polymerization of acrylonitrile and styrene polymers in the presence of polybutadiene rubber. Styrene, butadiene, and acrylonitrile are the raw materials that are derived from crude oil. Therefore, fluctuations in raw material prices directly impact the global prices of ABS. Price fluctuations can negatively impact the prices of polymers and their applications.
