Information @ a Glance


  • Natural rubber is an elastic hydrocarbon polymer that naturally occurs as a milky colloidal suspension, or latex, in the sap of some plants.
  • Rubber exhibits unique physical and chemical properties.
  • A rubber/elastomer is a polymeric material with long flexible molecular chains an the ability to deform elastically when vulcanised.

Manufacturing Process

  • Synthetic rubbers are made by the polymerization of a single monomer or a mixture of monomers to produce polymers.
  • Rubber latex is extracted from Rubber trees.
  • Natural rubber is a solid product obtained through coagulating the latex produced by certain plants, particularly the Brazilian rubber-tree .


  • The use of rubber is widespread, ranging from household to industrial products, entering the production stream at the intermediate stage or as final products.
  • The flexibility of rubber is often used in hose, tires, and rollers for a wide variety of devices ranging from domestic clothes wringers to printing presses
  • Its elasticity makes it suitable for various kinds of shock absorbers and for specialized machinery mountings designed to reduce vibration.
  • The coefficient of friction of rubber, which is high on dry surfaces and low on wet surfaces, leads to the use of rubber both for power-transmission belting and for water-lubricated bearings in deep-well pumps.  


  • Tires and tubes are the largest consumers of rubber, accounting for around 56% total consumption in 2005.
  • Demand for natural rubber, which has increased steadily over the past 10 years, is expected to grow at a similar rate in the next decade.
  • The requirement for non-tyre rubber is likely to grow faster than for the tyre sector as a result of solid demand in many industrial rubber products.
  • India's rubber consumption is expected to continue growing in the next few year, driven by the auto sector
  • Demand for rubber from India will continue to increase quite rapidly, probably next to China in terms of the rate of growth
