Want to know how the tire industry really works? This guide has got it covered. We’ve taken our very best insights, our most helpful data and our most important lists; put them together with our top predictions and best advice, and published them in one comprehensive guide to the global tire industry.

We started out with the most highly-praised articles from our incredibly popular Global Tire Industry Intelligence report. To add even more value, we’ve thrown in our top lists and charts from data we’ve been gathering through the year. That’s exclusive material, not seen anywhere else.

Our data pages cover the top-30 tire makers in the world, with rankings by revenue and by profit. We’ve looked at their 2017 results, and done more analysis on the first-half results.

On top of that, we have a comprehensive listing of investment projects from around the world up to mid-August 2018. We list that my tire company and also by region. To help you interpret all that data, we’ve put together a cheat-sheet of the key stories to come out of the tables.

We’ve also tracked tire prices split by rim size. Those charts tell a story – and he story is partly about brand and speed rating, but raw materials prices also come into it. We’ve got it all covered in this amazingly detailed report.

Then we have data on  tire markets in Japan, North America, the EU, China and India. We have detailed descriptions of tire technology from all-season tires to heavy truck tires. This is not the PR coming from companies with their ‘nano-particle aero technology’ and other nonsense speak. This is the real deal — discussing what goes into all-season tires; and how tire makers can meet legal requirements as well as commercial targets.

The 2018 edition will be published on August 20th, and we’re offering a pre-publication discount. Once it’s published, we’ll put up the contents pages but the price goes up to GBP999.

Even better, if you subscribe to our Global Tire Industry Intelligence report before the end of August, we’ll give you this incredibly valuable report for free. That’s really an unbelievable bargain!

As with all our products, we personalise it for your company, and don’t limit the number of direct employees that you can share it with. We want this document shared among your team. That’s how you maximise the value from it.
