For all the evolutions and innovations in automotive and aviation manufacturing over the last decade, there has been no replacement for the role of natural rubber in those sectors. We are far closer to replacing the driver in a car than the natural rubber in its tyres. We are using more and more rubber, while its supply becomes less and less sustainable. Simply put, natural rubber is an industry headed for crisis – one that will have a huge ripple effect across all of the industries and sectors it supplies.
Robert Meyer, CEO of Corrie MacColl and Halcyon Agri, shines a spotlight on the Natural Rubber industry.
