Govt to ensure rubber sector remains resilient

MRC's Chief executive officer Nor Hizwan Ahmad said glove manufacturers should switch their focus to the non-medical industry players as their potential and key clients to make the industry much more lucrative and continue to thrive rather than focusing on the healthcare sector.

KUALA LUMPUR: Latex goods accounted for 83.1% of Malaysia’s total exports of rubber products in the first quarter of 2022, with the glove sub-sector remaining as the largest export revenue generator for the industry.

The glove sub-sector, however, showed a decrease of 66.2%, equalling to RM6.04bil in the first three months of this year, from RM17.86bil in the same period in 2021, the Malaysian Rubber Council (MRC) said in a statement.
