Tire / Tyre Industry in South East Asia

The countries of Southeast Asia - Indonesia, Malaysia, Philippines, Thailand and Vietnam - have much in common both in natural resources and economic development. Between them they account for well over three quarters of the natural rubber produced worldwide. Consequently, it is not surprising that the region is home to a number of medium size tire manufacturers, some of them linked with large global companies and with ambitions to grow accordingly. Gajah Tunggal of Indonesia is the largest but others such as Casumina of Vietnam and Multistrada are expanding aggressively.

South East Asia Tire RegionsThe domestic markets in all these countries is growing rapidly, but in the short term the country likely to show the strongest growth is Myanmar. Malaysia and Thailand have the highest GDP per head and present the most attractive market for tires but in terms of population they are the two smallest countries of the group. In the longer term Indonesia with almost 250 million people and Vietnam with almost 100 million will be the most significant markets for tires.

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