Japan Tyre Market to Reach 167.2 Million Units by 2025, Catalyzed by Thriving Automotive Industry

Published on Feb 06, 2020

According to the latest report by IMARC Group, titled "Japan Tyre Market: Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2020-2025," the Japan tyre market size reached 163.1 Million Units in 2019. A tyre is a ring-shaped strong, flexible and pneumatic structure that is placed around the rim of a wheel. Manufactured using wire, fabric, carbon black, natural or synthetic rubber, and other chemical additives, the primary function of a tyre is to transfer the vehicle’s load on the surface and to provide a sturdy grip between the road and the vehicle. It also offers a flexible cushion to absorb shock and reduce the impact of vibrations that assist in enhancing road feel and improving the overall performance of the vehicle.

Japan Tyre Market Trends:

The market for tyres in Japan is primarily driven by the establishment of one of the most prominent automotive industries on a global level. Numerous key players, including Honda, Suzuki, Nissan, Toyota, Kawasaki, Mitsubishi and Yamaha, are based in Japan. In an effort to meet the domestic as well as the global demand for automobiles, the manufacturers are significantly increasing their production, thereby providing a thrust to the sales of tyres. Rapid urbanization and the increasing purchasing power of the majority of the population have contributed to large vehicle ownership in the country. This has catalyzed the demand for replacement tyres, which is further providing an impetus to the market growth. Moreover, the expansion of the e-retail sector in Japan has offered significant traction to the online sales of tyres, owing to the numerous associated benefits, such as reduced prices, vast product portfolio, brand comparison and fast delivery. On account of the aforementioned factors, the market is projected to reach a volume of 167.2 Million Units by 2025.
