Tire / Tyre Industry in the Middle East

The Middle East is not a large market in comparison to some other regions but it has an importance that belies its size. With the exception of Egypt, arabic-speaking North Africa has had small tire manufacturing facilities but most of these have either closed or are operating with difficulty. Egypt too, is currently experiencing a difficult business climate but it has the advantage of two large tire manufacturing facilities and it is also one of the largest single markets in the Middle East.

Middle East Tire Regions

The Gulf states offer a valuable and rapidly growing market but perhaps the two most interesting countries are Iran and Turkey. Iran has a substantial indigenous tire manufacturing industry which, because of sanctions, has turned inward but is now looking to export markets. Turkey also has substantial indigenous tire manufacturers but it has also been an attractive location for global tire manufacturers. It is on the edge of Europe but offers reduced manufacturing costs and the possibility of either joining or establishing favourable trade agreements with the EU.

Two reports are available for this region. The one that can be downloaded immediately examines the structure of the tire manufacturing industry in the Middle East and North Africa 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!
