Annual Report Overview

2017–2018 China IR Market Annual Report


As a natural rubber "alternative", the market trends of isoprene rubber (IR) are closely related to the natural rubber market. Supported by the rising natural rubber value, prices of IR hit a 3-year high in Q1, 2017. However, with the rapid decline of natural rubber market prices at the end of Q1, 2017, IR prices continued to fall subsequently. As for the supply, China’s IR market saw little changes. A lot of IR units were shut down in China while some producers kept uninterrupted production to maintain their regular clients.

At present, prices of Chinese-made IR are lower than those of the natural rubber. China’s IR market is well worth looking forward to in the coming period. In addition, prices of feedstock isoprene monomer are fluctuating at lows, pushing up the profit of IR producers to some extent. What adjustments will be made to the supply pattern of the IR market in 2018? How will the IR market move in the future?
