The market for winter tires is driven by seasonal wintery road conditions, and low temperatures in northern countries and regions (such as Europe, Russia, and North America). These conditions have translated into demands for greater driving safety from motorists, insurance companies and, not least, governments at country and state/province levels.  Despite the regulatory support, however, demand is still highly influenced by the severity of winters – making it difficult for manufacturers, distributors and raw material suppliers to plan, and raising the prospects of periodic shortages or excess supply.

Description

Our exclusive content:

  • Expert analysis of economic, environmental, regulatory and technological trends affecting global winter tire supply and demand
