General Information

The IRSG is the sole international body representing the global rubber industry, with its remit centred largely on the provision of timely and relevant economic and statistical information to industry stakeholders.

In the area of statistics, the IRSG Secretariat enjoys a rich tradition and has unrivalled expertise. It is the authoritative source of rubber statistics. Data on production, consumption, trade and prices – both natural rubber and synthetic rubber – are published on a quarterly basis in the Secretariat’s Rubber Statistical Bulletin. An analysis of the statistics is given in the quarterly Rubber Industry Report.

The Secretariat also prepares forecasts of rubber production and consumption, and undertakes statistical studies, where appropriate, on specific aspects of the industry. Short-term forecasts (current year and next year) are also presented in the Rubber Industry Report, while longer-term forecasts are given in the semi-annual report the World Rubber Industry Outlook.
