Pakistan rubber tyre and tube market forecasted on the basis of year on year growth from 2018 to 2025 by considering the driving and restraining factors.
The pakistan rubber tyre and tube market analysis totally depends on the components and design used while manufacturing the rubber tyre type used. Moreover, automobile manufacturers are inclining toward electric and alternative fuel vehicles due to implementation of vehicle emission regulations. The rise in production of commercial and passenger cars along with the new advanced technology fuels the growth of the Pakistan rubber tyre and tube market. For instance, Bridgestone came up with new innovative tyres “Ecopia EP500 ologic”. These tyre are based on "Ologic technology" which uses synergies of large diameter in conjunction with smaller width. Furthermore, this solution improves fuel efficiency by reducing rolling resistance and environmental impacts. In addition, the Continental started offering different categorized tyre as their product such as winter, all seasoned and summer to boost the sales of tyre in the Pakistan market.
Furthermore, the improving economy results in favorable condition for tyre manufacturers in Pakistan. For instance, Pakistan manufactures 4-stroke CNG auto rickshaws to meet the demand for a cheaper transportation. This factor has significantly increased the use of local automobile accessories including rubber tyres. To increase safety concerns, governments focus on introduction of stringent tyre performance regulation including fuel saving and wet grip-related braking distance reduction. Thus, creates ample growth opportunities for the tyre manufacturing companies to launch tyres that can address the government regulations. Therefore, with increase in technological advancements, vendors are coming up with high efficient tyres that enhance the overall fuel efficiency of vehicles. Kumho tyres launched pneumatic tyres “Ecsta PA31” that can offer high performance in the vehicles such as sport, sedans, and coupes. Pakistan rubber tyre and tube market share is rising due to increasing production of all type vehicles in this region.
Moreover, the production of vehicles has raised in recent year due to the consumers preference to the 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 Pakistan rubber tyre industry. 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 Pakistan rubber tyre and tube market.
Rise in pollution levels in the country leads to surge in demand for ecofriendly products. More importantly, various government initiatives are leading to increase in introduction of relatively less polluting products. This factor is estimated to surge the demand for green recyclable tyre in near future. The growth in demand for passenger and commercial vehicles in Pakistan is changing the automotive accessories such as tyres, tubes, rim, and valves Technological advancement in automobile industry is anticipated to cause more demand for techno-savvy products, which fosters the growth of the rubber tyre market in the country.
There is change in the world automotive environment is changing due to globalization. This results in a rapid rise in the demand for vehicles across all segments in all the countries. In addition, increase in level of radialization, and growth in production and sales of two-wheeler vehicles are the major factors that drive the growth of the tyre segment in this region.
