Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “Natural rubber is one of the most important raw materials for the tire industry, and around 14% of the total weight of a tire consists of natural rubber. In recent years, there have been instances when the price of natural rubber has increased considerably. The major natural rubber producing countries are in South and Southeast Asia. Rubber plantations in these regions are prone to seasonal damage and extreme weather conditions. In such situations, the supply becomes unpredictable, leading to price volatility. This has led to the development of alternative sources of natural rubber. Another source of natural rubber is guayule; it grows in arid climates of the US. Southwest Arizona suits the crop particularly well.”
According to the report, the global financial recession of 2007-2008 had a negative impact on the economy of Mexico, a major exporter of automobiles. It halted the growth of Mexico's economy, and GDP growth reached its lowest level. The country has since emerged out of recession with a real GDP growth rate in 2010. This has had a positive impact on the automotive industry in the country, which witnessed growth in 2010, 2011, 2012, and 2014. The GDP growth for Mexico is projected to continue at a steady pace over the next two years; this will have an impact on the automotive industry. Additionally, with 15.4% of the population aged under 15 years, and a mere 17.8% aged 65 years and above, it has a large existing and upcoming workforce and also has a large pool of young, new consumers.
