HOUSTON—The International Institute of Synthetic Rubber Producers has published the 2015 edition of Worldwide Rubber Statistics, its annual reference guide to the SR industry.
The Houston-based IISRP has published the book annually for more than 30 years. This 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 2015 version has 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 at www.iisrp.com/publications.
The association has more than 50 corporate members that combine to produce 80 percent of the world's supply of synthetic rubber.
