    Natural Rubber market report transcript


    Natural Rubber Global Demand by Application

    The major demand drivers, such as automobiles, tires and latex sectors, are expected to witness an optimistic outlook as 2017 progresses.

    The automobile production rise in developed regions, such as the US and Europe, and improved demand for passenger cars in India, China, and Korea are expected to support the global natural rubber demand. However, a decline in auto and tire sales has been witnessed in 2018 and H1 2019.

    • Emerging markets, such as China and India, are driving the total tire demand growth, as well as tire production.
    • The tire industry is shifting to low-cost production countries.
    • Latex products, such as gloves, dipped goods, are predominant in the Southeast Asian market, due to their strong R&D, sufficient supply and quality, like Malaysia and Thailand.
    • The latex demand is quite high in Malaysia to meet the rise in demand; being a producer, the region still imports from Thailand.
    • Other NR segments portray a modest market share, in terms of demand and growth, compared to other major end uses. These sectors are impacted by technology, economies of scale, efficient operational costs, etc.
    • In India, based on the above factors, imported non-tire products are cheaper than domestic products

    Natural Rubber Global Market Size

    • The NR market witnessed a lack of strong growth catalysts in 2019 to H1 2020, with a decline in sales of auto and tires.
    • The weakness in key downstream automobile and tire operations combined with downtrend in oil prices and buying momentum due to COVID-19, US-China trade war and other macro economic factors, demand had waned down in 2020.
    • Asia continues to be the dominant supplier of NR, due to the increase in yielding area, and the average yield in the top producing countries, like Thailand, Malaysia, and India.
    • Emerging NR producers, such as Ivory Coast, Cambodia, etc., are likely to showcase competition in the future

    Natural Rubber Market - Drivers and Constraints

    Drivers

    High Demand in Industrial Use Cases

    • In industrial applications, natural rubber is majorly utilized to produce different material handling equipment including seismic bearings, hoses, elevator belts, and tubes.

    Development of New Products

    • Reinforced products, including conveyor belts, air-brake diaphragms, and drive belts, are developed from coated or calendered rubber on a stationary or revolving drum.

    • When amalgamated with various chemicals and polymers, natural rubber delivers strong results in manufacturing pacemakers, respirators, and surgical supplies.

    Constraints 

    Availability of Alternatives 

    • The natural rubber industry market size is getting severely affected by the presence of substitutes such as polymers, plastics, and vinyl, which are relatively cheaper and are produced on a large scale across the world.
