Tire / Tyre Overview

This report captures the "big picture" by examining the whole industry worldwide. This is an extremely useful preparation for the more detailed specific and regional reports as it provides the context for each aspect of the industry. It first looks at the growth of the total market and then breaks it down into the component parts. The major product groupings are identified such as passenger car tires (tyres) and truck tires (tyres) as well as the more specialist product areas such as agricultural tires / tyres, earthmover tires / tyres and aircraft tires / tyres.

One critical distinction is between tires / tyres sold for new vehicles, the OE market, and those sold to replace existing, worn-out tires, the replacement market, because demand patterns vary considerably between these two markets.

The relative size and growth rates of the major geographical regions are defined and compared.

The major companies in the industry are identified and their market shares and relative strengths and weaknesses brought out.

Having established the main characteristics of the World Tire / Tyre Industry, this report then goes on to examine the dynamics of the industry - the major influences affecting all companies and which determine their decisions and actions - market maturity, capacity, cost structures, relations with competitors and, above all, globalisation.

This report is already prepared in draft form but will be individually completed for each purchaser in order to incorporate the latest news and information. In addition it may be possible to include additional information on request.

The report will cost $150 and will be sent within five working days of the order.

An Apology

Half the world uses the word "tire" whilst the other half uses "tyre". Unfortunately search engines don't realise that they mean the same. In order to be recognised by the search machines we have had to resort to the irritating strategy of duplicating the two words. Sorry!
