HOUSTON (Oct. 13, 2015) — The International Institute of Synthetic Rubber Producers (IISRP) has published the 2015 edition of Worldwide Rubber Statistics, its annual reference guide to the synthetic rubber (SR) industry.
The Houston-based IISRP has published the book annually for more than 30 years. The latest 88-page edition gives a comprehensive analysis of capacity by elastomer type, by geography and by corporate ownership. It includes a section on capacity of SR production facilities globally, including information on planned and announced expansions of SRP plants.
The report contains enhanced data on the Chinese market based on information gathered by the association's office in Beijing. The new edition also has enhanced graphics and trend analysis, and for the first time, includes graphical trends in capacity, the IISRP said.
It can be ordered on the IISRP website.
