Natural rubber raw material for tire
Rubber tree and tire industry
Rubber is one of the rubber and rubber materials that is available in two types of natural rubber and synthetic rubber. This material is called rubber in France and rubber in England and can be identified by aliases (N R). Many trees, shrubs and even shrubs produce a milk-like sap called latex or natural rubber. Hundreds of latex-producing trees have been identified, often growing in tropical, humid climates not all rubber plants are harvested for industrial purposes because they are either very inefficient or have a large amount of resin impurities, which is not economically justified. The most common rubber producer is Brazilian Huai, with a maximum height of 20 meters. The minimum possible harvest time is 6 years and the average latex harvest is 1135 kg per hectare. Malaysia has long been the largest producer of natural rubber, followed by Indonesia, Thailand, India, China and Sri Lanka.
Elastomeric materials produced by the process of chemical synthesis. Synthetic rubber, or SR for short, dates back to World War II, when scientists thought of an alternative to natural rubber due to the scarcity of natural rubber. Both natural and synthetic rubber have tensile properties and are used not only in the production of rubber but also in the manufacture of home and medical gloves, propeller belts, sanitary ware, bowling balls, kites, etc.
Consumption of rubber in the world
The International Rubber Study Group stated that for the first time in the last 16 months, global rubber consumption increased month by month. The IRSG said the phenomenon was due to increased rubber consumption in North America, while other areas often had reduced consumption. IRSG economists expect other parts of the world to experience declining consumption soon. In total, the consumption of natural and artificial rubber in the world is estimated to reach a small difference of 7.17 million tons. The increase left a balance deficit of 2.4 percent for each month compared to the same month last year. Despite the increase in rubber consumption in North America, the region still shows a decrease of about 8%, which is much greater than other important consumption areas in the world.
Current consumption of rubber
The IRSG currently estimates that global consumption will reach 2.17 million tonnes this year. Which is approximately 180,000 tons less than consumption in 2001. Consumption in North America is expected to increase slowly to 26.3 million tonnes in 2002. This figure is comparable to 23.3 million tons last year.
China’s rubber consumption is also expected to exceed 8.2 million tonnes, with an increase announced by the government. Last year, consumption in this country was 79.2 million tons. Due to the expansion of markets in Europe, the decline in consumption in France and Germany was more tangible. The IRSG said the only factor that could affect the outlook for rubber consumption was oil price volatility. With oil prices rising from $ 17 a barrel in November 2001 to $ 28 a barrel in April, the IRSG sees this as inflating and reducing the cost of using rubber.
