The article offers information on styrene. Styrene's main consumer is polystyrene, followed by other major users styrene-butadiene rubber, acrylonitrile-butadiene-styrene and styrene-acrylonitrile resins. Styrene derivatives are used in packaging, construction, automotive and household goods, and electrical appliances. There has been stronger styrene derivative demand in Turkey, central Europe, north Africa and the Middle East and this is helping to maintain demand for styrene in western Europe.
