The Future of Tire Manufacturing to 2022 provides analysis of the market trends in tire manufacturing, segmented by manufacturing process, end use, and region globally to 2022. Global tire manufacturing output is estimated to be over 17 million tonnes in 2016, and is growing nearly 4% per year through 2022, driven by increased demand, tire innovations, and continuing capital spending and capacity expansion by tire suppliers.

Improvements in manufacturing processes have accelerated over the last decade, spurred by the increased focus on environmental issues, along with construction of new factories to meet growing demand and have the ability to handle new equipment more easily. Advances in automation have also helped. There are still very significant savings to be realized, as well as increasing environmental regulations.
