ICIS is the first to launch a weekly price report for ethylene-propylene-diene monomer (EPDM) in Asia

Singapore, 5 December 2012 - Global market intelligence provider ICIS today announces the launch of the first weekly price and market report offering detailed information on ethylene-propylene-diene monomer (EPDM) activity in Asia. 

Asia is the largest and fastest-growing EPDM market in the world. With buoyant construction, manufacturing and automotive industries across China, India and southeast Asia, demand for synthetic rubber has soared as a consequence. Expert commentators are now predicting that the market for EPDM rubber is expected to increase at an average rate of about 5% annually to reach 1.5 million metric tonnes by 2016.

Access to timely and accurate pricing information to use as a benchmark is vital for producers, traders and end-users across the EPDM industry. ICIS has launched the ICIS Asia EPDM Price Report, the first and only dedicated weekly pricing report available in the market today. This new report enables you to easily and quickly monitor growing opportunities in this fast emerging industry.

The weekly report contains a wealth of valuable data to support producers, traders and buyers of EPDM by addressing the industry’s need for a trustworthy and regular source of EPDM market intelligence.  

With ongoing access to accurate and timely information, decision-makers will now be able to benchmark their transactions and make more informed decisions on sale and purchase prices. Subscribers to the new weekly report will receive the latest EPDM pricing data, market analysis, updates, production news and feedstock prices.

“EPDM is the third-largest synthetic rubber market after SBR and PBR, and is a natural progression for the existing ICIS rubber portfolio, particularly as there is no prevalent price benchmark or dedicated report that market players can rely on as an accurate reference for transactions. We are delighted to be the first to meet the growing need for information in this exciting market,” comments Steve Tan, ICIS Editorial Director for Asia.
