Styrene acrylonitrile Overview Transcript

Styrene acrylonitrile or SAN is a transparent resin made from styrene and acrylonitrile.

SAN is used to make consumable items like cigarette lighters, tooth brush holders and trays in refrigerators. It’s also used to make fan-blades and other items requiring transparency.

China is the main users of SAN in Asia, given its large manufacturing base and position as a leading exporter of finished goods.

SAN usage is expected to grow as demand for consumer items increases each year. Domestic demand in China has become an important outlet for SAN in Asia, as local demand for finished goods and consumer items is set to grow strongly over the next several years.

The market in Asia is essentially spot, with demand and supply conditions often moving prices, although speculation does often accentuate these price movements.
