Global EPDM Rubber Market Analysis: Plant Capacity, Production, Operating Efficiency, Technology, Demand & Supply, End-User Industries, Distribution Channel, Regional Demand, 2015-2030

Format: Online | Last Updated: May 2021

Global EPDM rubber demand is projected to grow at a healthy CAGR of 7.15%. Ethylene propylene diene monomer (EPDM) is a synthetic rubber which is made from ethylene, propylene and diene co-monomer which helps in sulphur vulcanization. It can be manufactured via two processes which are solution polymerization and suspension polymerization. EPDM has various properties like heat resistance, chemical resistance, light weight, 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 of 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 a number of industries. Construction and automotive were among the most affected industries during the pandemic. This had an impact on the demand of 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, Asia pacific region holds the major share of global demand for EPDM rubber due to increasing demand of application industries such as automotive and construction. Moreover, increasing number of industries using EPDM rubber is also an influencing factor supporting demand rise in Asia Pacific. Growing demand of electric vehicles is going to push the demand further in Asia Pacific.
