International rubber markets are seen to be volatile due to the highcompetitiveness between major rubber export markets. This paper analyses thecausal impact price transmission among ASEAN over the period of 2008 to 2015. The Bayesian structural VAR model is conducted to analyse relationship amongrubber export price for top four rubber producing in ASEAN.
