Ethylene Propylene Diene Monomer Market Overview

The ethylene propylene diene monomer is an (M-class) rubber and a copolymer of ethylene, propylene. It has a wide range of applications in different industrial verticals, primarily accelerating the demand for the Ethylene Propylene Diene Monomer Market. 


Ethylene Propylene Diene Monomers are high-density synthetic rubber with versatile properties and can withstand high temperatures (up to 215°C). It can exhibit excellent resistance to oxygen, ozone, sunlight and polar materials like phosphate esters, ketones, and alcohol. EPDM has good electrical properties such as low-temperature flexibility excellent resistance to heat, water, and steam, and it is an alternative to silicone for a similar temperature range. Due to these excellent features, the demand for the Ethylene Propylene Diene Monomer Market Sizeis accelerating worldwide.


EPDM is best suitable for electrical insulation, gaskets, and lamination application. This is due to its high resistance to solvents, abrasives, tearing, and temperatures. It has high elasticity at low and high temperatures with insulating properties and resistance to common diluted acids, ketones, and alkaline. The Ethylene Propylene Diene Monomer Market Growth is chiefly driven due to its higher and significant demand in the automotive industry with the high production and sales rate. It is widely used in the automotive industry for windshield wipers, radiators, seals and gaskets, brake parts, tubing, belts, weather-stripping, and others.


EPDM and EPM are Herdillia, JSR, Kumho Polychem, Mitsui Chemicals, Polimeri Europa, Bayer Polymers, Crompton Corp Exxon-Mobil Chemical Co., DSM Elastomers, Dupont Dow Elastomers, and Sumitomo Chemical Co. The projected demand for EPDM in India for 2016-17 was around 46 KTA.


EPDM is a replacement for thermoplastic olefins (TPO) and thermoplastic vulcanisates (TPV) in the plastic manufacturing sectors highly recommended by manufacturers. The rise in usage of advanced technologies in the production of plastic modification is encouraging the Ethylene


Propylene Diene Monomer Market Revenue.


Moreover, it is also used for manufacturing vehicle glazing systems, moisture barriers, engine mounts, valves, and pumps.
