St. Helier, Jersey -- (SBWIRE) -- 01/13/2014 -- The demand for natural rubber appears to be on the rise after November saw China – the world’s biggest importer of natural rubber – buy record amounts of this alternative commodity.
In November China’s imports of natural rubber – a commodity largely produced in and exported by Thailand – climbed to a 270,000 tonnes. This record amount is 42% higher than October of this year and 25% higher than November 2012.
This surge in the Chinese demand for natural rubber – which has been chiefly fuelled by the burgeoning tire manufacturing industry – has been reflected by a flurry of exportation to other countries worldwide, including the United States, Iran, Germany, Brazil, South Korea, Portugal and Finland.
A spokesman for Cedar Falls, the natural rubber wholesaler, said: “The strength of demand for natural rubber in China – a pattern which has been reflected across the globe – firmly suggests that consumption of this alternative commodity will continue to increase.
“So, with the demand for natural rubber set to reach unprecedented levels in 2014, now has never been a better time to acquire this valuable commodity.
