ABSTRACT
In this article, Stephen Evans, secretary general of the International Rubber Study Group (IRSG), tells that IRSG needs to have a better understanding of the interaction between natural and synthetic rubber and their relationship with the energy markets more clearly to project global rubber production and demand. He said that currently in forecasting rubber production, IRSG's model assumes that there is unlimited monomer feedstock availability and manufacturing capacity available.
