DUBLIN, Ireland (July 15, 2011)—SupplierBusiness has published a report titled “Trends in the Global Tire Industry 2011.”
The 279-page report was first published in June 2011 and is available for about $2,100, depending on delivery options.
The publishers said the world of tires has changed radically since our last report in 2008.
It has moved swiftly from bust to boom. The current picture is of strong demand, shortage of capacity and rising raw materials prices as shortages bite. The recession of 2008-2009 significantly accelerated the steady move in the balance of power in the tyre industry to Asia, away from the US and Europe. "
ERJ has not seen this report and can make no comment on the quality of the research or of the conclusions.
