Monthly Overview of NR Economy

Global outlook of natural rubber (NR) supply is estimated to recover at 1.3%, year-on-year, to 910,000 tonnes in March 2021, while the global consumption projected 1.234 million tonnes, up 7.4% during the same reference period. The favourable market fundamental in NR sector have supported the price growth in futures and physical markets of NR, except Shanghai Futures Exchange.
