Report covers global and Chinese NR industry.

"Global and Chinese Natural Rubber Industry Report, 2012" examines demand for natural rubber from 2005 through 2011.

This report on natural rubber covers the elastic solid substance via processing of natural rubber latex collected from Hevea brasiliensis. According to form, it can be divided into solid natural rubber (involving smoked rubber sheet, standard rubber, etc.) and concentrated latex, mainly used in tires, hose products and other sectors.

As a typical resource-constrained industry, natural rubber is subject to region, primarily planted in Southeast Asia and parts of Africa. Thailand, Indonesia, Malaysia, India and Vietnam are the world's five major natural rubber producing countries, altogether accounting for 84.5% of the global production in 2011, and oriented by standard rubber. Global natural rubber supply and demand were roughly balanced in 2011, respectively reaching 11 million tons and 10.9 million tons. China, the largest consumer of natural rubber worldwide, occupied 34% of the world's total consumption in 2011, according to the report.

From 2005-2011, there was a rather huge gap between supply and demand of natural rubber in China, with a self sufficiency rate of less than 20%, and mainly dependent on import. Indonesia, Thailand and Malaysia are China's main source countries of natural rubber, accounting for about 90% of China's total import volume. China's total output of natural rubber in 2011 stood at 707,000 tons.

This report includes supply/demand analysis, geographical distribution, price analysis, and more, of the global and Chinese natural rubber industry, as well as development status, development strategy, etc., of upstream/ downstream sectors of China's natural rubber industry. (Research and Markets)
