The International Institute of Synthetic Rubber Producers (IISRP) has published the 2010 edition of Worldwide Rubber Statistics, a source for data about synthetic rubber. This edition of the book, which has been published annually for the past 30 years, contains the joint IISRP/International Rubber Study Group (IRSG) forecast for synthetic rubber. In addition, it has revisions to other elastomer type capacities as the synthetic rubber market continues to be dynamic.
The book provides an analysis of capacity by elastomer type, by geographical distribution, and by corporate ownership. It also features a graphics section that emphasises statistics in easy-to-read format and a section on capacities of synthetic rubber production facilities throughout the world, including a section on planned and announced expansions of synthetic rubber plants.
