The EMR report also covers the regional markets like North America, Europe, the Asia Pacific, Latin America, and the Middle East and Africa.
The natural rubber market is being significantly driven by the increasing demand for tyres as well as latex goods like gloves, belts, catheters, condoms, and other industrial durables, among others. The growing market for these products is fuelling the demand for natural rubber as well.
The demand for natural rubber is aided by the growing economies like India and China, among others. The rising tyres market is planning to shift its production base to low-cost producing nations, like India, China, and others. This will help them garner more demand from the consumers as it would be more cost-effective. This plan would also drive the overall automobile sector further and provide an impetus to natural rubber demand.
The demand growth of natural rubber is being aided by the developing nations and their rising GDP. The overall GDP growth significantly impacts the demand growth of the product; thus, any increase in the global GDP results in an increased demand for natural rubber. The increasing awareness about health and personal hygiene has resulted in an increased demand for products like gloves, condoms, and others.
