Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/c12d09/rubber_chemicals_w) has announced the addition of the "Rubber Chemicals World Data Book 2007" report to their offering.

Rubber Chemicals World Data Book 2007 provides an up-to-date and comprehensive overview of the $3.1 billion global market for organic rubber processing chemicals. Though used in small quantities, these chemicals are essential to rubber compounding, where they control vulcanization, ease processing and improve the physical properties of the final product. Materials covered include antioxidants, antiozonants, accelerators, waxes, adhesion promoters and other products (retarders/antiscorch agents, antireversion agents, curing agents, tackifiers, peptizers, foaming and blowing agents and flame retardants). The report provides coverage for all regions and 24 leading countries. Data are presented for all years from 1996 through 2006, with forecasts provided for 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010, 2015 and 2025. The report includes profiles of 63 leading suppliers, providing intelligence on capacity, product mix, annual rubber chemical sales and recent restructuring activities.

Major additions to this version include:

-- Short term forecasts (2008-2010) as well as long term forecasts through 2015 and 2025;

-- Current production capacity for antioxidants (6PPD & TMQ) and accelerators by company;

-- Market share for leading suppliers by region and product segment;
