Developing Long-Term Domestic Success: Insights on China’s Tire Market

How can the Chinese tire market overcome the dominance of foreign players to establish larger market share domestically?

September 2022 , by Yuichi Ota

Due to an effective industry overhaul by the government and the post-pandemic recovery of the global economy, China’s tire market is projected to grow at a 5% CAGR from 2021 to 2025, with a total market size of 482 billion CNY. 

However, the brand power of Chinese tire brands is still insufficient compared to foreign counterparts—in China’s domestic passenger car market, for example, local brands only have a one-fifth market share mostly represented by low-end models.   

To ensure that it meets its targets and gains more favorability with the domestic population, improving brand power is a must for China’s tire market. This publication delves into the current landscape of the domestic tire market and takes a deeper look at how leading tire brands can drive successful growth and development through trends and market structure.

  1. Providing reasonably priced and high-performance tires for the market 
  2. Developing owned e-commerce platforms and membership systems to strengthen CRM efficiency
