Acrylonitrile butadiene styrene (ABS) is an amorphous polymer and opaque thermoplastic which is derived from three distinct monomers and polymerized through the process of emulsion. They are commonly used to make light, rigid, and molded products including pipes, automotive components, machine components, enclosures, wheel covers, and protective head gear. Due to high resistance to corrosive chemicals and physical impact, acrylonitrile butadiene styrene is gaining increasing demand in a wide range of industrial applications. Further, ABS finds application in injection molding manufacturing processes or 3D printing, owing to its low melting point which makes it easy to use in such processes. These are the key factors driving the development of acrylonitrile butadiene styrene (ABS) market.

Apart from the automotive industry, ABS gains significant adoption in the manufacturing of construction instruments, industry goods, and various equipment which require to achieve lightweight and high tensile strength. Surging demand for acrylonitrile butadiene styrene (ABS) can be attributed to its more durability and better corrosion resistance than conventional products such as PVC. In construction sector, ABS is substantially used in the manufacturing of pipes, vacuum pumps, fitting instruments, and even in the large equipment for the storage of waste materials. Widening application base in various industries is projected to bode well with the growth of acrylonitrile butadiene styrene (ABS) market.
Although the acrylonitrile butadiene styrene (ABS) market is foreseen to maintain a positive outlook in the coming years, emergence of better alternate products increasing demand for the styrene butadiene rubber (SBR) may create a hindrance in the market growth. It provides high-abrasion resistance, leading to surge in its demand in the manufacturing of tires in the automotive industry which will possibly hamper the growth of acrylonitrile butadiene styrene (ABS) market.
