Alpha Methyl Styrene (CAS No:98-83-9) is an organic compound with a molecular formula C6H5C(CH3)CH2. It is also referred to as Isopropenyl benzene. This clear colourless organic compound is characterized by a sharp odour. The chemical is obtained by partial oxidation of cumene, it is a by-product of cumene-phenol process wherein phenol and acetone are synthesized from benzene. The global capacity for production of alpha methyl styrene is closely ties to the overall global phenol manufacturing capacity. Alpha methyl styrene finds a variety of applications across a diverse set of industries including plastics, adhesives, and chemicals among others. In plastics industry, alpha methyl styrene is used in manufacture of resins such as ABS – Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene. Alpha methyl styrene, when used in manufacture of ABS resin, imparts a relatively higher heat stability so also relatively higher impact strength to the resin as compared to that obtained by use of styrene. Moreover, alpha methyl styrene also finds application as a plastic additive. Besides, alpha methyl styrene also finds application in lubricating oils, perfumes, plasticizers manufacture among the others

Global Alpha Methyl Styrene market is expected to witness a steady single digit growth during the forecast period. Growth in consumption of Alpha Methyl Styrene is expected to be driven, especially, by increasing demand from developing economies such as China, India. Alpha methyl styrene is predominantly used in manufacture of ABS resin, as such increasing demand for the same from end use industries is expected to in turn drive the growth of global alpha methyl styrene market during the forecast period. Also, the growing demand from chemicals industry, where alpha methyl styrene is used as an intermediate, is expected to drive the growth of global Alpha Methyl Styrene market during the forecast period. However, relatively weaker economic growth in major markets across the globe during forecast period is likely to impede the growth of global Alpha Methyl Styrene market in the same period.
