Ethylene propylene diene monomer (EPDM) is a versatile, synthetic rubber manufactured either through polymerization or suspension processes. It offers extreme resistance to heat, abrasion, water, climatic conditions, chemical, and direct exposure to ultraviolet (UV) rays. It also provides durability, flexibility, higher tear strength, and greater bonding with metals compared to silicon. Besides this, it exhibits excellent electrical insulation, low operating temperatures, and a good compression set. As a result, EPDM rubber is extensively used in window and door seals, belts, roofing membranes, drain tubes, non-slip coatings, and trunk seals.
A significant rise in the construction activities of residential buildings and commercial complexes is escalating the need for premium wires, cables, windows, and door seals, which, in turn, is positively influencing the demand for EPDM rubber. In addition, the escalating demand for consumer electronics with superior thermal stability due to improving income levels and rapid urbanization is creating a positive outlook for the market globally. Apart from this, the rising focus on reducing carbon footprint and harmful emissions is promoting the sales of electric vehicles (EVs) worldwide. This, in turn, is driving the demand for EPDM rubber for efficient electric insulation and manufacturing rubberized channels for windshield wipers, brake parts, windows, and windscreens. Additionally, various leading players are focusing on launching innovative and bio-based product variants to expand their product portfolio and meet the rising consumer demand for sustainable products. They are also increasingly investing in various research and development (R&D) activities, which is anticipated to propel market growth in the following years.
