Tire / Tyre Industry in India & South Asia

By its sheer size and large economy India dominates the South Asia region but both Sri Lanka and Pakistan have sizeable tire manufacturing capabilities and Pakistan in particular represents a large potential market for tires. Although it has no tire manufacturing facilities, Bangladesh is almost as big as Pakistan in terms of population but it has only two thirds of the per capita spending power. Sri Lanka is small in terms of market size for tires but it is an important world player as a manufacturer of industrial tires.

Indian Tire RegionsNevertheless, India has both the largest tire market and the largest manufacturing capability. It has about thirty companies which claim to make tires but these vary widely in terms of capability. As well as the international companies with tire manufacturing facilities in India there are perhaps five sophisticated Indian firms with the capability of competing outside their domestic market. All of them export tires to a wide range of markets and two companies, JK Tyre and Apollo Tyres have purchased manufacturing companies in Europe, North America and Africa.

Two reports are available for this region. The one that can be downloaded immediately examines the structure of the tire manufacturing industry in South Asia and surveys every tire factory in the region on a comparable basis.

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!
