Ethylene Propylene Diene Monomer (EPDM) Market Introduction

EPDM market to value over USD 7.4 billion by 2027 end and register a CAGR of over 6.1% from 2020 to 2027.

The market is essentially influenced by increasing demand for bio-based products and R&D investments in the field. High demand for ethylene propylene diene monomer (EPDM), is due to developing end-use industries like automotive and construction, and the growth of these industries is also propelling the market growth. Increasing expenditure on construction and infrastructure development by federal governments due to the growing population along with rapid urbanization and industrialization in developing economies will also support market growth.

Thus, growing construction activities, particularly in China and India, are expected to augment the market due to employment in infrastructure and construction applications. However, EPDM is expected to witness the maximum demand from the automotive application segment on account of their non-reflective and premium-quality finish. EPDM can also be used in electrical cable joints and roofing membranes as it does not pollute the runoff rainwater, thereby improving the efficiency of rainwater harvesting. All these factors together are creating lucrative growth opportunities for the global market.
