Natural rubber latex. (Reports/Studies).

This study examines the supply and usage of natural rubber latex (NRL) through investigating the gloves markets, and it identifies emerging trends and issues that will shape the future demand for NRL. Although the study concentrates on the market for surgical and medical gloves, it does, when possible, expand the coverage into other gloves, i.e., household and industrial gloves. The report is divided into two parts, with the first section concerning itself with demand, production and trade of raw latex. The coverage is by individual countries, regional and global in graphical form with accompanying analysis of trends. The second section examines the gloves market. (International Rubber Study Group)
