Rubber Exports From Indonesia May Grow 6%-8% Next Year

Natural rubber shipments from Indonesia, the largest grower after Thailand, may rise 6 percent to 8 percent next year from an estimated 2.4 million metric tons on strong demand from India and China, an industry group said.

Output of the commodity used to make tires and gloves may gain as much as 8 percent next year to 2.6 million tons to 2.7 million tons as a rainy season that may last until the first quarter of next year is forecast to have a limited impact to production, Asril Sutan Amir, chairman of the Rubber Association of Indonesia, said.
