The Asia Pacific dominates the global market for polystyrene, contributing significantly to the global trade market of the product. In February 2019, Ineos Styrolution, a leading global styrenics supplier, completed the acquisition of two polystyrene sites in China from Total S.A. The company focuses on styrene monomer, polystyrene, ABS Standard, and styrenic specialties and provides the ease of recyclability and compatibility to its consumers. With this acquisition, the company aims at expanding its market in Asia, further making domestic market in China accessible to the company with locally produced materials.

Moreover, with the increasing environmental concern and rising plastic pollution, the demand to reduce plastic waste is on the rise. Thus, the major players in the industry like Total S.A. (NYSE: TOT) and others are focusing on recycling its plastic produce, further reducing the carbon footprint on the environment. Total S.A., a global leader in bioplastics, is the most integrated oil and gas company with worldwide operations, producing fuels, natural gas and low-carbon electricity. In June 2018, Total S.A. announced that it has joined forces with Citeo, Saint-Gobain, and Syndifrais, to create a polystyrene recycling channel in France by 2020. The feasibility of large-scale production will be validated at the Group’s industrial sites in Carling (France) and Feluy (Belgium). All the four players in the polystyrene consumer packaging value chain actively seek a recycling solution that will ensure the development of a circular economy for such products.
