The Indian Rubber Industry enters the new millenium with a polymer consumption of around 900,000 tonnes. India is the 4th largest producer of Natural Rubber. Yet due to its one billion population with a growing middle class, the Per Capita Rubber Consumption which is 0.8 kgms per person is slated to grow. And grow it will that too at a rapid pace.

The Rubber Industry is poised to grow at over 8% to 10% in this decade. The arrival of all Automobile majors in India is an explosive growth in the Rubber Industry. To give an opportunity to all industry professionals to be a part of this fast paced growth, the All India Rubber Industries Association is organizing a 3 day Exhibition & Seminar on the 3rd, 4th & 5th of April 2001 at Mumbai. Mumbai being the commercial hub of India and the financial centre & gateway, is hosting the event at Nehru Centre which is a world class exhibition venue situated in the heart of the city.

All India Rubber Industries Association, the Organiser is the apex organisation of the Indian Rubber Industry with a membership of over 1000. It represents 85% of the Rubber Industry. The Association has now completed 57 years. It is a non profit organisation promoted to serve the Rubber Industry and provide the platform for growth. The aim of the event is to provide all the professionals from the Rubber Industry a platform to meet, exchange ideas and provide a road map for the future of the Rubber Industry. Around 15 countries are participating in the exhibition.

China has already taken up 20 stalls, at the exhibition. They are looking at developing new markets conducting joint venture and also looking for suppliers of raw material inputs and semi-finished goods to China. Slovakia, Malaysia, are sending large contingents for participation. The Malaysian Rubber Industries will set up pavilion at the India Rubber Expo. Taiwan Rubber Industries Association is sending an official delegation headed by Chairman of the Taiwan Rubber Industries Association. This organization represents the manufacturing sector of the Taiwanese Rubber Industry. All the countries are aiming to develop new market, look for technical tie-ups, with India. Today they see India as a possible investment destination. It is significant to add here that Taiwan has large investment in China in various industries which include Rubber.

India with a population of over 1 billion is one of the fastest emerging market. The growth of the Rubber Industry reflects the economic growth of the country. Today India has the largest number of qualified personnel and trained rubber technologist providing for a strong technical base at a very reasonable cost. In addition India has a very strong industrial base for Railway, defense, space research, mining etc. All these translate into tremendous potential for the Rubber Industry.
