[Geofin Comtrade] Daily report on Natural Rubber: September 7, 2016


A mixed trend is being witnessed in natural rubber in the major overseas market on Wednesday. TOCOM rubber futures shed more than one per cent, stretching previous day’s losses, while SHFE rubber futures edged higher. The most active February rubber futures on TOCOM came under pressure from strengthening yen though firmer crude oil prices lend lower level support.

In the local market, natural rubber stayed feeble. Quotes for RSS4 in the spot market slid to its weakest level in about five months as production improved. Subdued demand from the tyre sector weighed on the sentiments as well.


India’s natural rubber production rose 11 percent in July from a year ago to 52,000 tonnes the Rubber Board said in a statement.The country’s imports in the month fell to 41157 tonnes from 41917 tonnes, while consumption jumped 4.3 percent to 83400 tonnes on year on year basis.

The International Tripartite Rubber Council (ITRC), a grouping of Indonesia, Thailand and Malaysia, will trim exports by an additional 85,000 tonnes from September to December this year, an Indonesian rubber industry official said.

Hon’ble Minister for Commerce & Industry Smt. Nirmala Sitharaman convened a meeting of the Members of Parliament from the rubber growing states and the stakeholder representatives in Delhi on 22 August 2016.

The Minister directed Rubber Board to estimate state-wise cost of production of rubber at the earliest. On the issue of pending planting subsidy, it was confirmed in the meeting that additional funds for Rubber Board will be sought from Ministry of Finance through second supplementary Demand for Grant.
