About Rubber Industry • Around 25 million tones of rubber is produced each year. • About 48% of the global demand for natural rubber comes from China. India and Malaysia which are three major natural rubber consuming countries within (Association the ANRPC of Natural Rubber Producing Countries) .

Market Capitalization India's Rubber production varies between 6 and 7 lakh tons annually which amounts to Rs. Output per annum Today Indian Rubber Industry consists of turnover of Rs 12000 crores. Percentage In World Market India is the world's largest producer and the third largest consumer of natural rubber. followed by Punjab and Maharashtra. 300 medium scale and around 5600 small scale and tiny sector units Geographical distribution Kerala is the leading producer of rubber. 3000 crores.Rubber Industry in India • India is the third largest producer Size of the Industry 6000 unit comprising 30 large scale. . with the world India's production of rubber is consistent at the rate of 6% per annum • India is the world's largest manufacturer of reclaim rubber. • Comparatively. of rubber in die world It is the fourth largest consumer of natural rubber.

In 1990. around 5. .4 million metric tons in 2013.Rubber Consumption • This statistic shows the global consumption of natural and synthetic rubber from 1990 to 2014.18 million metric tons of natural rubber were consumed worldwide. This amount increased to almost 11.

• Remaining large amount is used in medical goods and commercial purpose. .Rubber Consumption in Different industrial sectors • Around 70 percent of the world's natural rubber is used in tires.

Rubbers and elastomers will be considered to be synonymous in this work. Such materials are generally long chain molecules known as "polymers" and the combination of elastic and polymers has led to the alternative name of "elastomers".dimensional chemical structure and are able to withstand under force large deformations • Based on the source of raw material. . there are two kinds of rubber natural rubber (NR) and synthetic rubber (SR).Rubber • Rubbers are loosely described as materials which show "elastic" properties. Products made from rubber have a flexible and stable 3 .

milky white liquid called latex that oozes from certain plants when you cut into them. though we'd need an awful lot of them. (Common dandelions. you can see the latex dripping out from them. for example. if you snap off their stems.) Although there are something like 200 plants in the world that produce latex.Natural Rubber • Natural rubber is made from a runny. widely known as the rubber tree . there's no reason why we couldn't make rubber by growing dandelions. In theory. produce latex. over 99 percent of the world's natural rubber is made from the latex that comes from a tree species called Hevea brasiliensis.

The monomers can be produced pure and the addition of impurities or additives can be controlled by design to give optimal properties.3-butadiene). and chemical properties. .3-butadiene). and isobutylene (methylpropene) with a small percentage of isoprene for cross-linking.Synthetic Rubber • Synthetic rubber is made by the polymerization of a variety of petroleum-based precursors called monomers.3-butadiene. These and other monomers can be mixed in various proportions to be copolymerized to produce products with a range of physical. Polymerization of pure monomers can be better controlled to give a desired proportion of cis and trans double bonds. Other synthetic rubbers are prepared from isoprene (2-methyl-1. The most prevalent synthetic rubbers are styrene-butadiene rubbers (SBR) derived from the copolymerization of styrene and 1.
