Global Tires

Global Tires

Global demand for tires is forecast to increase 3.1% per year through 2022 to 3.2 billion units. In value terms, sales of tires are projected to advance 4.9% per year, boosted by expected increases in raw material prices and the continued development of higher quality tires. As production of these higher value tires expands, it will cause changes in manufacturing locations, plant capacities, and tire replacement rates.

Because tires are essential components of motor vehicles and other transportation equipment, two key factors affect growth:

Rising incomes in developing nations increase purchases of motor vehicles and the need for OEM tires. A larger local vehicle park also increases the pool of potential replacement sales.
Economic growth contributes to increases in average annual vehicle mileage and expedites the need for replacement tires.

This report covers tire demand by Market and Region. Data are provided in units, with total tire sales are provided in dollar value.

Markets for tires include:
Light motor vehicles
Medium & heavy motor vehicles
Motorcycles
Agricultural & other

Regional demand breakouts include:
North America
Central & South America
Western Europe
Eastern Europe
