ERJ staff report (DS)
Kuala Lumpur - In the November edition of Natural Rubber Trends and Statistics, the Association of Natural Rubber Producing Countries (ANRPC), says India, Cambodia and the Philippines have all revised downwards their projections of NR exports for the year. Sri Lanka increased its provisional exports from 48,500 tons to 49,900 tons.
India has revised downward the country's provisional exports during 2012 by a total of 8,000 tons since September 2012 from 35,000 tons to 27,000 tons. In addition, Cambodia and Philippines also revised the country's exports from 68,700 tons to 67,400 tons and from 51,300 tons to 49,700 tons respectively.
Overall, the figures are missing vital data from Indonesia and Thailand, by far the two largest producers of natural rubber. so little can be read into the numbers.
The data continues to show that by year-end Vietnam will have produced slightly more natural rubber than Malaysia, placing Vietnam in third slot in the global league table.
