The global EPDM industry is witnessing high growth on an account of increasing applications, technological advancements, and growing demand in the Asia-Pacific region. Ethylene propylene diene monomer are largely used in industries such as automotive, building & construction, plastic modification, wire & cables, lubricant additive, tyres & tubes, etc. Growth for EPDM market is driven by moderate growth in big end-user industries and high growth in other mid size end-user industries. Plastic modification market growth is one of the major market drivers. Rise in the cost of EPDM manufacturing and increasing awareness of health hazards associated with ethylene propylene diene monomer based products are the major stumbling blocks in this market.

Competitive environment of EPDM market is enriching itself in state of low entry market barriers, growing production capacity utilization of ethylene propylene diene monomer, and development of new capacities in Asia-Pacific region.

The global market for EPDM was estimated to be worth around $4.2 billion in 2011 and is expected to reach $6.5 billion by 2017, growing at a CAGR of 6.9% from 2012 to 2017. The demand for global market is expected to rise in Asia-Pacific due to robust growth in end-user industries such as automotive, wire & cables, and lubricant additive of China and India.
