India Rubber: Flat in Kerala; near-term outlook firm on supply woes

Informist, Wednesday, Jun 29, 2022

 

By Rahul Dhuri 

 

MUMBAI – Prices of natural rubber in the key markets of Kerala remained largely unchanged today. However, the near-term outlook remains firm due to concerns over supply amid a likely rise in the domestic demand, experts said. 

 

* Lower availability of raw material is expected to support prices as rains in the key producing regions have affected the tapping activity, said Joy Alencherry, owner of Kerala-based J&J Trade Links.

 

* In the global market, futures contracts of natural rubber rose marginally today due to hopes of a recovery in demand from China, analysts said.

 

* Demand for rubber from China is expected to increase as the country began to ease some restrictions to curb the spread of COVID-19. China is one of the top consumers of natural rubber.

 

* However, due to Beijing’s zero-COVID policy, some traders are still sceptical about recovery in the country’s economic activities, which could keep rubber prices under pressure in the near-term.

 

Following are the highlights of today’s trade:

–In Kerala, which accounts for nearly 70% of India’s natural rubber output, the widely traded RSS-4 variety was sold at 179 rupees per kg, unchanged from the previous day.

–The most-active November contract on the Japanese bourse was up 0.6 yen at 258.3 yen (149.3 rupees) per kg.
