HOUSTON — The International Institute of Synthetic Rubber Producers Inc. (IISRP) has published the 2019 edition of its Worldwide Rubber Statistics, which chronicles the development of the world's synthetic rubber industry.
The 2019 edition inclues revised elastomer plant capacities in the synthetic rubber market, which continues to be dynamic, the IISRP said. The institute's China office played a key part to enhance the intelligence on the Chinese market for this edition, it said.
The 85-page book provides a comprehensive analysis of capacity by elastomer type, geographical distribution and corporate ownership, the Houston-based institute said.
It also features a graphics section that emphasizes statistics in an easy-to-read format, as well as a section on capacities of synthetic rubber production facilities throughout the world, including a section on planned or announced expansions, it said.
The IISRP is an international not-for-profit trade association with over 60 corporate members, domiciled in 22 countries, that produce 75% of the world's supply of synthetic rubber.
The 2019 edition of Worldwide Rubber Statistics is available at $2,500 per copy from www.iisrp.com/publications.
