Ethylbenzene: Production and Market in Russia

Ethylbenzene is widely used in the petrochemical industry as an intermediate for production of styrene, raw material for polystyrene, ABS resin and synthetic rubbers.

Currently, global production capacity of ethylbenzene is 35m tpy. In Russia, there are four producers of C6H5CH2CH3: Nizhnekamskneftekhim JSC, Salavatnefteorgsintez JSC, Sibur-Khimprom CJSC and the Angarsk Polymer Plant JSC. Their total capacity is 849,000 tpy, which accounts for 2.4% of world capacity. Last year Russian petrochemical companies produced 556,000 tonness of ethylbenzene, which is 14.9% less than in 2008. However, this is a temporary downturn. Given the growth in demand for polystyrene and styrene-butadiene rubber in the next few years, the production of this product will increase by 5-7% per year.
