The increase in import of NR into the country can be primarily attributed to the gap between production and consumption of NR in the country and lower prices of  block rubber in international markets as compared to the sheet rubber in domestic market.

Cost of production of rubber varies from region to region and depends upon a number of factors such as labour wages, value of land, input costs, etc. Rubber Board has undertaken a study to work out the cost of production of Natural Rubber. However, final report has not yet been submitted.
