EPDM Market

DOW (US) and Versalis S.p.A (Italy) are Leading Players in the EPDM Market

The global EPDM market is projected to grow from USD 3.9 billion in 2023 to USD 5.2 billion by 2028, at a CAGR of 5.9% during the forecast period. The rising automotive sector in the APAC region is driving the EPDM market during the forecast period.

EPDM (Ethylene Propylene Diene Monomer), represents a versatile copolymer composed of ethylene, propylene, and non-conjugated diene monomers. Functioning as a saturated elastomer, EPDM offers robust resistance to polar solvents. Its production primarily relies on catalysts like Ziegler-Natta or Metallocene, with manufacturing processes encompassing slurry, gas-phase, and solution methods. The solution polymerization process is generally used in the commercial production of EPDM. EPDM rubber excels in resisting heat, aging, UV exposure, and ozone. Moreover, it shows poor resistance against solvents and hydrocarbon fuels.
