The International Buyer says :
The growing demand for india rub
ber for use in manufacturing in the
United States is illustrated by some
figures just presented by the De
partment of Commerce and Labor
through its Bureau of Statistics.
They show that the value of india
rubber imported into the United
States has grown from 10 million dol
lars in 1884 to 44 millions in 1904, and
that the total value of india rubber
imports in the period 18S4-I004 is,
in round terms, about 440 millions of
dollars. This increasa in the value
of rubber imported is due in part,
however, to an advance in price, the
average value per pound of the im
ports of crude rubber (including
gutta percha) having been in 1884,
43 cents, and in 1904, 70 cents! The
total quantity of rubber imported iu
a crude stale in 1884 was 23,672,563
pounds, and in 1904, 61,889,751 lbs.
A comparison of the importations
of rubber in 1904 with those of 18S4
suggests not only tho growing
demand in the United States for this
article, but recrgnition of the im
portance of husbanding the rubber
resources of the world. t In 1884 the
only rubber imports were crude
ri bber and gutta-percha. In 1904,
however, there were not only crude
rubber aud gutta percha, but also
about 15 million pounds of "gutta
joolatong" cr East India gum. a pro
duct of Borneo, which in certain lines
of manufacture is utilized instead of
india rubber; and in addition to this
1G million pounds of old and scrap
rubber fit only for renianufacture.
Thus it would appear that the rapid
ly growing demand for rubber and
of our Manager enables us to
use absolutely pure extracts.
the consequent danger thct it may
in time exceed, the supply are sug
gesting to the manufacturers and
others engaged in this industry the
importancs of husbanding of re
sources as far as possible.
Brazil, of course, supplies the
largest share of the rubber imports
of the United States. Of the 62
million pounds of india rubber im
ported t.. 1904, S4i million pounds
came from Brazil, while the bulk of
the remainder came, apparently,
from Africa. The original sources,
however, of the large rubber imports
other than those from Brazil, are
somewhat problematical, since 22
million pounds are reported by the
Bureau of Statistics as imported
from Europe; though as no European
country produces india rubber in any
considerable quantities it must be
assumed that it was brought by
those European countries from some
other part of the world, and that
probably it originated in Africa and
other of the colonies of the European
countries. From the United King
dom the imports of rubber have
grown from OA million pounds in the
fiscal year 1893 to 9 millions in 1903;
from Germany, whose chief colonial
possessions are in Africa, the im
ports of rubber have grown from 1J
million pounds in 1893 to nearly 3
millions in 1903; from Belgium, whose
colonial possessions are exclusively
in Africa, the growth has been from
30 thousand pounds in 1893 to 5
millions in 1903; and from Portugal,
whose chief colonial possessions are
also m Africa, the imports have
grown from 1 million Dounds in 1893
to a little over 2 million pounds in
Plain Soda and Root Beer.
The Central American States also
supply considerable quantities of
rubber, the imports from Nicaragua
being nearly one million pounds per
annum, and the total from the other
Central American States amounting
to about 300 thousand pounds annual
ly. From Mexico the quantity im
ported in 1904 amounted to 366,104
pounds, against 120,415 pounds in
1894. Colombia and Ecuador supply
each about one-half million pounds
annually, and the British East Indies
about one-half million pounds.
The rapid increase in the use of
india rubber and its importance in
our manufacturing industries is also
illustrated by the census figures of
manufactures, which show that the
number of establishments manufac
turing rubber and elastic goods has
increased from 93 in 1880 to 262 in
1900; the capital employed, from 6
million dollars in 1880 to 39 millions
iu 1900; the cost of materials used,
from 9 million dollars in 1880 to 33
millions 1900; and the value of pro
ducts, from 12 millions in 1880 to 521
millions in 1900. Practically all of
this large manufacture i absorbed
by the home market, the exports of
rubber manufactures having amoun
ted to only 14,435,590 in the fiscal
year 1904, wlv'le the imports of
manufactures of rubber amounted ln
the same year to $1,157,042.
