Global alpha-methylstyrene market is expected to rise to an estimated value of USD 563.80 million by 2026, registering a steady CAGR in the forecast period of 2019-2026. This rise in market value can be attributed to the growth in demand for the consumer goods which are one of the major uses of alpha-methylstyrene along with its growing applications in the automotive industry.

Market Definition: Global Alpha-Methylstyrene Market 

Alpha-methylstyrene is a colourless liquid chemical which is manufactured as a by-product of the phenol-acetone production process. It is less dense than water and is insoluble with an aromatic fragrance. It is a highly flammable liquid with a burning point at 115°F, and finds its use as an intermediary for the manufacturing of other chemical products.

Key Developments in the Market:

  • In January 2019, Mitsui Chemicals, Inc. announced that they will initiate the production of alpha-methylstyrene at the facility of their subsidiary present in Singapore, Mitsui Phenols Singapore Pte. Ltd. This step will provide for better supply chain system as the demand for alpha-methylstyrene is increasing amid growth of the economies.
  • In August 2016, Westlake Chemical Corporation announced that they had completed the acquisition of Axiall Corporation. This acquisition will establish Westlake Chemical Corporation as a leader of several chemical products & services in the North America region, and also positively affect the revenues of their organisation by expanding the product portfolios of the combined organisation.
