The trend of natural rubber and synthetic rubber is slightly inconsistent. In terms of natural rubber, funds have driven futures to rebound, while spot offers have also increased, but trading small orders.

Natural rubber has fallen from 42,000 yuan/ton in 2011 to the current 11,560 yuan/ton. About 72%.
