Favored by policies, the automotive wheel industry will see a CAGR of 4.0% or so during 2018-2023. As its automotive wheel industry is developing apace, China has become the global production center for automotive wheels, with at least 70% of the world's wheels produced in China.
Automotive wheels can be divided into aluminum wheel and steel wheel, of which the former is primarily used in light vehicles with a higher market share. The aluminum wheel output seized 69.6% of the total in 2017, and it is expected to reach 250 million units in 2023.
The demand for wheels in China are primarily from OEMs, AM and export. In 2017, 48.4% and 41.4% of the market demand for Chinese aluminum wheels stemmed from OEMs and export respectively; over 70% of the demand for steel wheels was driven by OEMs.
Major automotive wheel manufacturers in China include CITIC Dicastal, Zhejiang Jinfei Kaida Wheel, Zhejiang Wanfeng Auto, Zhengxing Wheel, Zhejiang Jingu, etc., featuring relatively high market concentration. In 2017, the CR5 of China's aluminum wheel industry was 54.0%, of which CITIC Dicastal ranked first with a market share of 26.9%; China's steel wheel industry fetched the CR5 of 63.3%, in which Zhengxing Wheel and Zhejiang Jingu held the market share of over 15.0% each.
