According to the General Administration of Customs of China, NR (including latex) imports for July 2018 reached 207,100 tons, increasing by 41.82% compared with last year. From July to August, the traditional demand for rubber in the downstream market was weak, and the continuous depreciation of RMB increased the import cost of natural rubber. As a result, the intention of domestic merchants to replenish supplies was weakened, so China's natural rubber imports in July declined in a narrow range from the previous month.
