Based on purity, the assay above 99.5% segment of the alpha-methylstyrene market is projected to grow at a higher CAGR than the between 95% to 99.5% segment during the forecast period in terms of both, value and volume. Purity above 99.5% indicates that the chemical mixture contains over 99.5% of pure alpha-methylstyrene. Higher the purity level of alpha-methylstyrene, higher is the number of applications, wherein it can be used. Alpha-methylstyrene with purity above 99.5% is used as a heat stabilizer for ABS, as a solvent in the plastics industry, and as a pigment and paint adhesive agent in adhesives & coatings, waxes, and tackifiers. It is also used in the food and cosmetics industries. Alpha-methylstyrene is used as an antioxidant, a modified polyester, and an alkyd resin. The global industrial standard for the purity of alpha-methylstyrene is 98.5%. Most of the manufacturers of alpha-methylstyrene across the globe produce alpha-methylstyrene having a purity level of 98.5% and above.
