Overview of Rubber Sector in India

There are about 6000 units comprising 30 large scale, 300 medium scale and around 5600 small scale and tiny sector units. Such units are manufacturing more than 35000 rubber products, employing 400 hundred thousand people, which involves 22000 technically qualified support personnel, contributing 40 billion to the National Exchequer through taxes, duties and other levies. The Indian Rubber Industry plays a vital role in the Indian national economy as the rubber plantation sector in India produces over 630 hundred thousand tonnes of natural rubber and there is a projected production of more than one million tonnes in near future.

The Indian rubber industry comprises about 500 large and medium scale units and nearly 5,500 small and tiny units and is highly labour-intensive with 500,000 people directly employed in the industry. The Indian rubber industry consists of around 5,500 units and is dotted with the presence of several small and tiny units. Tyre industry constitutes around 60 per cent of Indian rubber industry turnover.

With an estimated production of 125 million tyres during FY2013, the size of the Indian tyre industry is estimated at 285-290 billion. The auto industry consists of around 39 companies, spread throughout the country, with many being rather small. Tyre companies directly employ over 0.13 million persons of varying skill levels. Tyre industry consumes around 63% of the total Natural Rubber (NR) produced in the country. Since production of NR involves over 1 million growers (farmers), tyre industry provides gainful employment to nearly 0.5 million growers of NR, a majority of them in the small grower category. This means that there would be an increase in the employment opportunities for people in the rubber sector.
