SINGAPORE, Sept 28 (Reuters) - Global natural rubber consumption is expected to fall 5.5 percent to around 9.5 million tonnes in 2009 versus a previous forecast of a drop of 4.9 percent, because of uncertainties in global economic growth. The Singapore-based International Rubber Study Group said on Monday global natural rubber output was also estimated to fall 4.8 percent in 2009 to 9.4 million tonnes. It gave no further details.
