Strategies for Natural Rubber Production and Development in China

The world's natural rubber output was 12.31 million t and the consumption reached 12.17 million t in 2015. China's natural rubber output was 0.85 million t and the consumption reached 4.724 million t in 2016. Southeast Asian countries are the main natural rubber producing countries, and ITRC policy affects the natural rubber prices. During 2017-2025, the supply of natural rubber in the world is expected to be abundant to meet downstream demand. Based on natural conditions for rubber planting and production costs, China's rubber production should place emphasis on developing Class I rubber production area, strengthening Class II rubber production area and adjusting Class III rubber production area. It is recommended to build high-output rubber plantations in Class I rubber production area in Xishuangbanna; choose rubber farms with good conditions in Class II rubber production area and build high-quality rubber production base as the dedicated production raw material base for aviation rubber; expand the Southeast Asia rubber production belt for development of natural rubber industry.
