ERJ staff report (DS)
Dublin, Ireland -- Freedonia has published a new report titled, World Rubber & Tire Industry. The 570-page report was first published in January 2010 and is available for a price of around Euro 4720, depending on delivery options.
The publishers say, "World rubber consumption is forecast to rise 4.3 percent per year through 2013 to 27.9 million metric tons from a weak, recession-plagued 2008. A majority of rubber demand is accounted for by the motor vehicle sector, particularly via usage in tyres. A healthy recovery in the motor vehicle industry in important producing nations such as the US, France and Canada will benefit rubber demand through 2013. China, the largest national rubber market, will account for half of all new rubber demand in the world through 2013, and account for almost one-third of the global market in 2013."
