Annual Report Overview

2017–2018 China EPDM Market Annual Report


China’s ethylene propylene diene monomer (EPDM) market was changeable in 2017: Turnarounds were intensive; supply of some grades was tight; EPDM prices reversed their losing streak; newly-built units were expected to go into operation. The EXW prices of Chinese-made EPDM and USD offers for imported EPDM rose slowly in Q1, while RMB offers dropped slightly due to the weak demand in Q2, 2017. However, the supply was a little tight, and there was still an opportunity for the EPDM prices to increase in Q4, 2017. Most EPDM units were shut down for maintenance on a global basis in 2017, and the time was mixed. The output of EPDM in China is expected to increase by 15%–20% from last year. The Newly-added capacity in Q4, 2017 is 400kt/a, increasing by 20%.

China’s EPDM market will be impacted obviously by the newly-added capacity in 2018. However, end demand may grow at a slow pace. Under the imbalance between supply and demand, the market is expected to undergo a reasonable adjustment, facing challenges and opportunities at the same time. Producers, who will put the new units into operation in Q4, 2017, may expand the market in 2018. The low price is likely to be the effective strategy to enter and occupy the market rapidly against the current market competition. Nevertheless, derivative products of EPDM mainly distribute in automobile field, which takes a longer time to replace the feedstock EPDM. Thus, the influence of new units on the EPDM market will be reflected slowly. In addition, the adjustment of downstream companies tend to end in 2018 on the environmental protection, etc. The demand for EPDM may step into a new growth mode after downstream plants basically recover to normal operation.

In term of the original data from Sublime China Information Co., Ltd. (abbr. as SCI) and synthesized the authoritative data from National Bureau of Statics, General Administration of Customs and industry statistics, also, 2017–2018 China EPDM Market Annual Report analyzes the EPDM market in detail from supply-demand and price, etc. according to the situation of Chinese suppliers, traders and larger downstream producers.
