Demand: According to statistics, in June 2019, the domestic rubber tyre tyre output was 70.279 million, down 2.45% annually, up 3.2% year-on-year; in January-June, the domestic rubber tyre output was 403.745 million, down 1.0% year-on-year.
3. Prospects for the Future Market
Xu Xiaokun, an analyst with business associations, believes that at present, on the one hand, the rising price of crude oil butadiene in the upstream supports the price of cis-butadiene rubber, on the other hand, the ring ratio of tire production in the downstream rubber market is decreasing, which creates a negative atmosphere for cis-butadiene rubber. Later look at the cis-butadiene rubber market will form a turbulent situation.
