India with 1.34 billion people i.e. 18% of the world's population is unstoppable. Just a year back India leaped to the sixth largest economy in the world in terms of Gross Domestic Product (GDP). The countries ahead of India are well-developed countries like United States, China, Japan, Germany and France. It is estimated that Indian economy will double to $5 trillion by 2024 and the leap will take India ahead of China by the middle of 21st Century.
With India emerging as the world's largest economy, it is the 2nd largest natural rubber consumer in the world, just behind China. It is on the trail to invest in infrastructure, transportation, sanitation, Clean India, Digital India, tourism etc. Rubber is in enormous demand as it is the raw material integral for many different industries.
