The global EPDM market is projected to grow from USD 3.6 billion in 2022 to USD 4.8 billion by 2027, at a CAGR of 5.9% during the forecast period. The recovery of automotive sector in the APAC region is driving the EPDM market during the forecast period.
Ethylene propylene diene monomer or EPDM is a copolymer of ethylene, propylene, and non-conjugated diene monomers. It is a saturated elastomer that provides resistance against polar solvents. The major catalysts used in the production of EPDM are Ziegler–Natta catalysts or Metallocene catalysts. The major processes used in the manufacturing of EPDM are slurry, gas-phase, and solution. Solution polymerization process is usually used in the commercial production of EPDM. EPDM rubber provides resistance against heat, aging, UV, and ozone. However, EPDM shows poor resistance against hydrocarbon fuel and solvent.
