Share Article

High tariffs on China’s exports to the US, slower car manufacturing output and rising raw material prices all pose challenges for China’s Tire Manufacturing industry, according to IBISWorld, America’s largest publisher of industry research. These challenges are likely to cause much slower revenue for Chinese tire manufacturers over the next five years, with industry revenue totaling US$81.09 billion by 2016.

Revenue of the Tire Manufacturing industry in China is expected to total $49.49 billion in 2011.

High tariffs on China’s exports to the US, slower car manufacturing output and rising raw material prices all pose challenges for China’s Tire Manufacturing industry, according to IBISWorld, America’s largest publisher of industry research. These challenges are likely to cause much slower revenue growth for Chinese tire manufacturers over the next five years, with industry revenue totaling US$81.09 billion by 2016.

In recent years, tire demand has been driven by several factors. The development of China's Automobile Manufacturing industry has been a major driver of tire demand. Along with increased automobile ownership in China, demand for replacement tires for existing vehicles continued to increase strongly in the past five years. Road construction and growth in road transportation have also contributed to higher demand for tires.

These demand drivers have been in conflict with various trouble spots for the industry, such as international trade frictions and anti-dumping duties imposed by various countries. Other headwinds for the future of the Chinese tire industry include higher costs of rubber and the expiration of government policies that encourage vehicle purchases in China.

Still, revenue of the Tire Manufacturing industry in China is expected to total US$49.49 billion by the end of 2011, up 9.2% for the year, with an average annualized growth rate of 19.9% from 2006. Revenue growth in 2011 will be much weaker than that of 2010, due to reduced downstream demand.
