Alpha-Methylstyrene Market Application 2022 - Development Analysis, Business Challenges, and Regional Outlook by 2030

According to MRFR analysis, Global Alpha Methylstyrene Market is estimated to reach USD 478.2 million by the end of 2025 at a healthy CAGR of 4.6%.


Alpha-methylstyrene (AMS) is an insoluble colorless liquid with an aromatic odor. AMS is obtained as a by-product in the manufacturing of cumene-phenol process. To obtain high purity AMS, it undergoes purification by continuous distillation at reduced pressure to remove phenol, cumene, and other impurities. It is widely used as a copolymer to synthesize different monomers such as benzene and acrylates.

On the basis of purity, the global alpha-methylstyrene market has been bifurcated into 99% and 99%. The 99% segment held the largest market share in 2017 and is estimated to be the fastest-growing segment during the forecast period. This is attributed to the increasing usage of AMS in the production of heat-resistant acrylonitrile-butadiene-styrene (ABS). Moreover, it is the basic raw material of organic compounds used in the production of paint adhesives and pigments. Additionally, it is used as a plastic additive.

Based on application, the global Alpha-Methylstyrene Market has been classified into resin, plasticizers, adhesives, waxes, coatings, chemical intermediate, finishing agents, and others. The acrylonitrile-butadiene-styrene (ABS) sub-segment, under the resin segment, dominated the global market in 2017 owing to the high glass transition temperatures and high heat distortion of AMS.
