Calling it the worst natural rubber shortage in years, industry analysts expect record shortages to continue into next year, according to reports.
Heavy demand by tyre-makers around the globe coupled with a combination of drought and heavy rains in plantation areas has sharply reduced output and inventories of natural rubber, according to Bloomberg, with analysts saying natural rubber production will continue to lag for the next two years. What that means is further increases in natural rubber costs to tyre-makers, and higher finished good prices for tyre dealers and consumers.
