Global Tire Raw Materials Indices
IHS Chemical Market Advisory Service: Global Tire Raw Materials Indices (formerly CMAI Tire Index Report Service) delivers a monthly index for historical and current tire raw material costs, segmented by synthetic rubber, natural rubber, carbon black, fiber, steel cord, silica and other chemicals.
