However, ABS faces the threat of being substituted by other thermoplastics, particularly polypropylene and polystyrene. Both these plastics have excellent properties and are increasingly being used as substitutes to ABS in automobile and consumer goods applications. In addition, ABS comprises of monomers that are hazardous and have serious exposure impact on humans and the environment. These factors could act as major inhibitors for the market and could hamper the demand for ABS over the coming years.
