To illustrate historical trends, total demand is provided in annual series from 2007 to 2017; the various segments are reported at five-year intervals for 2007, 2012, and 2017.

Retreaded, regrooved, and used tires are excluded from tire production and sales data, as are bicycle and electric motorbike tires.

All tire capacity numbers have been listed in units per year. When converting published daily plant capacity data into annual capacity format, an assumption is made that there are 350 working days per calendar year in all countries. In addition, one metric ton of tires is assumed to be equivalent to 90 light motor vehicle tires. Appropriate adjustments were made for plants that primarily produce large heavy truck and bus tires or smaller specialty tires.
