  • Despite the projected growth, all the indications are that the next few years are going to be challenging for materials suppliers
  • Previous growth predictions, largely based on booming Chinese and South Asian markets, are being significantly scaled back; trends towards lighter weight tyres is reducing demand; and tyre makers are targeting materials inputs as a source of cost savings
  • The Future of Tyre Raw Materials to 2021 provides a five-year forecast for the size of materials markets, making it a crucial planning tool for businesses in the tyre value chain.
