Learn about the rubber products’ industry of India

Natural rubber, also called India rubber or caoutchouc, as initially produced, consists of polymers of the organic compound isoprene, with minor impurities of other organic compounds, plus water.

Currently, rubber is harvested mainly in the form of the latex from the rubber tree or others.

In India, commercial cultivation was introduced by British planters, although the experimental efforts to grow rubber on a commercial scale were initiated as early as 1873 at the Calcutta Botanical Gardens.

The Indian rubber industry has been growing in respect of strength and importance. India is the world’s largest producer and the 3rd largest consumer of natural rubber.
Uncured rubber is used for cements, for adhesive, insulating, and friction tapes. It is also used for crepe rubber used in insulating blankets and footwear. Vulcanized rubber has many more applications.

During the last few years, the production of rubber over the world has been unstable. However, as compared to the world production of rubber, India’s rubber production is consistent at the rate of 6% per annum. The Indian rubber industry has been growing tremendously through the years.
