EPDM (Ethylene Propylene Diene Monomer) is used in various applications such as window and door seals, electrical gaskets, and waterproofing sheets. Some common applications in the automotive sector include radiator and heater hoses, wire and cable connectors, and diaphragms. EPDM is used in diverse industries such as construction, manufacturing, industrial, and electronics.

The COVID-19 outbreak has negatively impacted the EPDM industry due to supply chain disruption, operational challenges, transportation delays, and travel restrictions. The manufacturing of automotive, construction and electronics components takes place in the Asia Pacific region, which has been severely affected by the pandemic and has experienced reduced demand and workforce impairment. Restrictions on imports of goods to curb the spread of the virus have further restricted market growth. Manufacturing activities have also been halted due to various government regulations across the globe.
