A tyre is a component fitted around the rim of a wheel to transfer the load of a vehicle from the axle to the ground. Rubber tyre consists of tread, jointless cap piles, beads, and other materials, which include synthetic rubber, carbon black, and fabric. The major function of the tyre is to protect the wheel rim and offer tractive force between the road surface and the vehicle. Since, it is manufactured from rubber, it also provides a flexible cushion, thereby reducing the impact of the vibrations and absorbing the shock of the vehicle. There is an exponential increase in the demand for tyre due to the rise in vehicle production in Pakistan to cater the increase in requirement of vehicles across all segments. Thus, the tyre demand is ultimately governed by automobile production.

Rise in competition among tyre manufacturers
Pakistan automotive sector is experiencing exponential growth due to a rise in the demand for automobiles and use of collaborative & consolidation manufacturing in tyre business. This in turn boosts the growth of the automotive tyres, as tyres are one of the basic components of the vehicle. Thus, the rubber tyre manufacturers in Pakistan are witnessing strong competition to capture a larger market share. For instance, South Korea’s second largest tyre manufacturer Kumho Tyre has sealed a deal with a Pakistani company—Century Engineering Industries—to transfer its tyre making technology for the next 10 years due to rise in intense competition in the rubber tyre market. Also, this factor is responsible for swift changes in the tyre market that makes it more dynamic. Original tyres are installed by vehicle manufacturers at the factory, which is recognized as a primary division of the tyre market, whereas the replacement aftermarket is another division market. Thus, tyre manufacturers are engaged in producing sustainable and high durable tyres with a high level of performance to attract more vehicle manufacturers. Therefore, there is a rise in competition among tyre manufacturers in Pakistan. This in turn fosters the growth of Pakistan rubber tyre and tube market.
By Vehicle Type
Two wheeler by vehicle type segment is projected as the most lucrative segments
Increase in total vehicle production in Pakistan
In the recent years, consumers have shifted their interest to automotive vehicles, as these vehicles facilitate luxury features such as advance driving assistance system (ADAS), and others that are technologically advanced as against traditional vehicles. In addition, there is a rise in number of electric vehicles in Pakistan due to favorable government policies. This creates a demand for the production of different variant of electric vehicle. For instance, there is an increase of 15-18% from 2014 to 2017 in the overall production of vehicles in Pakistan. The implementation of advanced technologies in production helps boost the growth for Pakistan rubber tyre and tube market. All such factors are creating awareness in Pakistan. Also, the easy availability, affordability and company expansions in this region are important factors that create a huge demand for the rubber tyre industry in Pakistan.

Radial by design type segment is projected as the most lucrative segments
Growth in market of retreading tyres
The retreading tyre Pakistan rubber tyre and tube market is witnessing huge investments from manufacturers. This fosters the growth of the market. Retreading is the process that replaces the tread on worn tyres. It helps save tyre and material cost to a huge extent, when compared to manufacturing a new one. Retreading directly reduces the aftermarket cost of the OEMs. Factors such as existence of cheaper tyre brands and discomfort of roads are responsible for the growth of the retreading tyre market. Thus, the retreading tyre market poses as a serious threat to the Pakistan rubber tyre and tube market.
By Component Type
Tyre by design type segment is projected as the most lucrative segments
Volatile prices of raw materials
The materials used to manufacture rubber tyres are tread, jointless cap plies, steel-cord for belt plies, textile cord ply, Bead reinforcement, apex, and core. Also, it consists of synthetic rubber, natural rubber, steel wire, and carbon black along with the petrochemical reinforcing materials such as polyester, fabric, nylon, steel, and rayon. The pricing of these raw materials plays a vital role in deciding the overall price of the tyre. Prices of these metals fluctuate occasionally due to global economic ups and downs in the market, as these are traded on a community exchange basis. Inflation and increase in the demand for these raw materials fuel their prices in the recent past. Domestic players that are currently operating in Pakistan Rubber Tyre and tube market are satisfying only 20% demand for tyre and for their expansion they require a large amount of raw materials. In addition, the rise in price of such raw materials hinder the market growth for local players. Uncertainty in the pricing of these raw materials along with the high dominance of smuggled tyre proves to be a major restraint for the Pakistan rubber tyre and tube market growth.
Improving economy that results in favorable conditions for the manufacturing sector
Due to the rapid enhancement of technology, most of the manufacturing companies are adopting automation to increase the productivity and profitability.
