The India Rubber Expo is Asia’s largest rubber expo. It made its debut in 2001 and has grown to be one of the most anticipated events in the
rubber industry today. Now it's Ninth International Exhibition and Conference is to be held at the Chennai Trade Centre in Chennai as a valuable
platform for growth, exchange and collaboration.
The IRE offers a unique opportunity for Indian companies to meet and collaborate with overseas companies. An integral part of the thriving rubber industry, the IRE is a clear indicator of India’s own position as the second fastest growing economy in the world. IRE 2011 was held in Chennai and it was ranked as one of Asia’s largest rubber shows and one amongst the largest in the world.
More than a decade since its inception, the India Rubber Expo has grown - literally – from a mere 3000 square meters in 2001 to a whopping 25,000 square meters in 2015!
With an extensive plantation sector with indigenous availability of basic raw material and a growing reputation as an automobile hub, India is
set to become a major player in the global rubber industry. Already ranked the 3rd largest consumer and producer of natural rubber, 65% of which
goes into automobiles, industry experts predict that this momentum will continue.
We are proud of our mission to make India the world’s rubber destination of choice. A visit to the Expo will give you a sense of our vision and why we feel it is viable. India has a huge potential for growth in this field, thanks to a strong technically trained manpower base and many supporting institutions for training and testing. Furthermore, the robust growth of the nation itself coupled with free trade agreements have helped to accelerate momentum. The India Rubber Expo offers an unbeatable platform for all these elements to come together.

where the growth rates for the rubber markets are expected to be higher than for their international counterparts. Experts and specialists
