Alpha-Methylstyrene (AMS), Market is Projected to Reach USD Million by 2027, Growing at a CAGR of around 4.5% During 2021-2027

Published | January 2021

According to BlueWeave Consulting, the global Alpha-Methylstyrene market worth USD 487 million in 2020 and is further projected to reach USD  million by 2027, growing at a CAGR of around 4.5% during 2021-2027 (forecast period). Alpha-Methylstyrene (AMS) is a colorless liquid. It is produced as a by-product during Phenol production from Cumene oxidation. The impurities of Phenol, Cumene, and butyl-benzene are removed before using AMS. Major areas of application for AMS are waxes, paints, and coatings, perfumes, antioxidants, adhesives, chemical intermediates, etc.


Increasing use of Acrylonitrile butadiene styrene (ABS) had the largest share of the market and is likely to drive the market. 


The major use of AMS is in the production of acrylonitrile-butadiene-styrene (ABS) resins, which accounts for more than 1/3rd of the total demand for AMS. The growing demand for ABS in the automotive and electronics sector is directly affecting the growth of the AMS market. Increasing investment in the electronics and automotive sector is going to raise the demand for ABS, which as a result will raise the demand for AMS.


Formation of carbon mono-oxide, when burnt, is a major restrain for

market growth. 


When burnt, alpha-methyl styrene produces carbon monoxide, toxic vapor, which leads to the formation of greenhouse gases. Carbon monoxide is also harmful to humans. AMS is also not compatible with strong oxidizing agents. When comes in contact with a human, AMS irritates eyes, throat, and skin. AMS vapor forms an explosive mixture with air. 


Acrylonitrile-butadiene-styrene (ABS) had the largest share of the AMS market and is likely to drive the market in the forecast period. 


Alpha-methylstyrene (AMS) has many areas of application, such as Waxes, ABS, paints, and coatings, perfumes, antioxidants, adhesives, chemical intermediates, binding agents, cleaning products, etc. The major use of AMS is in the production of Acrylonitrile-butadiene-styrene (ABS). ABS is popular across industries all over the world due to its versatility. While butadiene provides toughness and strength, acrylonitrile adds thermal and chemical stability, and styrene adds a beautiful glossy finish. ABS also have high tensile strength and is resistant to physical strength and chemical corrosion. All these properties are encouraging the use of ABS and are driving the market.
