Format: Online | Last Updated: Nov 2021

[Online Quarterly Update] EPDM rubber demand stood at 1.35 Million Tonnes in 2020 and is forecast to reach 1.992 Million Tonnes by 2030, growing at a healthy CAGR of 3.83% until 2030.
Ethylene propylene diene monomer (EPDM) is a synthetic rubber that is made from ethylene, propylene, and diene co-monomer which helps in sulfur vulcanization. It can be manufactured via two processes which are solution polymerization and suspension polymerization. EPDM has various properties like heat resistance, chemical resistance, lightweight, durability, etc. Due to these properties, EPDM finds application in several areas including automotive, building and construction, plastic modification, wires and cables, tires and tubes, and lubricant additives. Increasing demand for automotive and building and construction coupled with demand growth for other application areas is expected to drive the demand for EPDM rubber for the forecast period. Moreover, increasing demand from electricals is also an influencing factor supporting demand rise for EPDM during the forecast period. Additionally, growth in the demand for electric vehicles is expected to push the demand further during the forecast period. 
In 2020, the spread of COVID-19 in major global economies caused nationwide lockdowns which had an impact on several industries. Construction and automotive were among the most affected industries during the pandemic. This had an impact on the demand for EPDM for the first half of 2020. The demand for EPDM rubber fell during the coronavirus pandemic from the automotive and construction segment.  
Region-wise, the Asia-pacific region holds the major share of global demand for EPDM rubber due to the increasing demand of application industries such as automotive and construction. Moreover, an increasing number of industries using EPDM rubber is also an influencing factor supporting demand rise in the Asia Pacific. The growing demand for electric vehicles is going to push the demand further in Asia-Pacific. 
Major players for EPDM rubber globally include Arlanxeo, DOW Inc, Exxon Mobil Corporation, JSR Corporation (Kumho Polychem Co. Ltd.), PetroChina Company Limited, Versalis S.p. A, SK Global Chemical Co. Ltd, Sumitomo Chemical Co. Ltd., and Mitsui Chemicals, Inc.
