Market overview of expanded polystyrene packaging 
Technavio’s research analyst predicts the global expanded polystyrene (EPS) packaging market to grow at a CAGR of close to 7% during the forecast period. The high recycling rate of EPS makes it a more suitable material used for packaging compared to other plastic packaging materials. Polystyrene, EPS, acrylonitrile butadiene styrene (ABS), styrene-acrylonitrile (SAN) resins and thermoplastic elastomers are the major plastic products used for different packaging applications. Out of these products, EPS has the highest recycling rate of 15%. Recycled EPS can be used for foam packaging and also for making products such as CD cases and coat hangers. Moreover, it is less harmful to the environment compared to other plastic packaging materials used for the same applications.

The growth of the takeout and delivery industry is expected to aid the growth of the EPS packaging market by the end of 2020. EPS packaging has numerous applications in this industry in the form of foam trays, EPS containers, packaging services, and EPS for dunnage. Investments in the food ordering industry have increased by nearly 13 times from 2013 to 2014. Also, the growth of the e-commerce industry will further encourage the prospects of the EPS packaging industry.
