Spot rubber ended in green on Monday. RSS4 improved to ₹170.50 (170.00) after hitting an intra-day high of ₹171.00 a kg, according to traders. The grade firmed up to ₹170.00 (169.50) per kg as quoted by the Rubber Board.

“The market regained strength on fresh buying coupled with short covering and we expect tyre makers to join the buyers queue soon”, an observer told BusinessLine.

As per reports, imported NR has become more expensive to the manufacturing companies in India. This is due to the disrupted global logistics, delayed shipments, and abnormal increase in the ocean freight cost. The average price worldwide to ship a 40 foot container has increased more than four times, according to sources in the shipping industry. Imported NR (RSS and TSR) also attracts a basic customs duty at the rate 25 per cent of CIF value and additional duties. All these factors have made domestic sourcing a preferred choice over imports.
