Global rubber demand to recover in 2020

World demand for rubber is expected to grow 2.6% in 2020 after falling an estimated 1.5% last year from 2018, new figures from the International Rubber Study Group (IRSG) show.

The rebound will be driven by predominantly by growth of 4.3% in the non-tire sector, according to the latest edition of the IRSG's World Rubber Industry Outlook, which sees tire sector demand rising 1.5% this year.
