Tire / Tyre Industry in Russia & CIS

The tire industry in Russia and the two largest countries in the CIS (Commonwealth of Independent States) has led a rather turbulent history since the break up of the Soviet Union in 1991. The country was self-sufficient in tires but quality was inconsistent so imported tires found a ready market. In the initial anarchic phase local oligarchs dominated the indigenous factories but these gradually gave way to domination by the chemical operations of the big oil and gas organisations. Even here, there was a great deal of political maneuvering and ownership changed for many of the factories.

Russia & CIS Tire Regions

The tire industry structure is now stabilising. The large petrochemical companies are still involved but tire manufacture is recognised as a separate industry and is being spun off. The western tire manufacturer, Pirelli, is heavily involved in this reorganisation and renaissance. At the same time most of the global tire manufacturers have set up their own plants in Russia but not without problems and a number of false starts. The business environment in Russia is difficult for firms coming into the country and it has taken them far longer to establish a tire manufacturing presence in Russia than it did in eastern Europe in the same time period.

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