Market Overview

The United States tire replacement market has noticed stable growth in the last couple of years. The increase of replacement tires prices have increased in 2019 averaged from 2% to 7% varying by tire brand. The moderate prices increase primarily due to more stable commodity pricing which exerted less pressure on tire OEM margins as their production costs remained relatively flat. The prices will continue to increase due to the raw material challenges and shortages. USD 20 billion dollars is spent on replacing the tires every year in the US. The 220 million passenger cars and light trucks in United States consume about 130 billion gallons of motor fuels annually. Production of passenger tires rose from 126.10 million units, light truck tires to 26.40 million units, and medium truck tires to 14.80 million units.

Trends, Drivers & Challenges to Market Growth

Demand for high-performance tires in United States continues to increase especially on the replacement side; it represents 38.20 percent of aftermarkets shipment. Growth on the original equipment averaged 40 percent in the past 5 years which accounted for half of the Original Equipment Sales. Shipments of after-sales tires rose 10.20 percent to 78.70 million units, while those to OE customers were up to 4 percent to 25 million units. The biggest challenge is the accumulation of scrap tires which becomes the breeding ground for millions of insects because of health hazards for humans. So proper disposal of these scrap tires is very essential and from time to time they have to be disposed of. The scrap tires can also cause fumes if they are near some oil reserves. The process of replacement is too expensive and complex which is the biggest challenge and restraints for many companies and countries.

South Carolina’s remains no 1 in tire recycling with the estimated daily tire production growing to 103,000 units as expansions by Bridgestone, Continental Tire and Michelin started having an effect on them. Two more plants are operating with those of Trelleborg Wheel Systems and Giti Tire Group will expand in the coming years.

Michelin remains no 2. and then comes BF Good rich brands. Continental and General Brands remain a later part of the list.

Sales Distribution

Import brands claimed more than a quarter of the U.S. passenger and light truck replacement markets, while the domestic makers' and associate brands represented more than 60 percent of each category, according to Tire Business' analysis of RMA and Commerce Department data. U.S. shipments of winter/traction tires grew slightly to a 3.6-percent market share, up from 3.5 percent in 2013. By contrast, winter tires represent 35 percent of aftermarket car tire shipments in Canada. Ironically, unit shipments are roughly 7 million in each country. The roster of OE suppliers will grow to an even dozen this year when Sumitomo Rubber USA L.L.C. starts supplying its Falken brand to a few select vehicles. Bridgestone also is considered a leader on the retail of the ledger, reporting an estimated $4.5 billion in sales through its Bridgestone Retail unit, slightly ahead of mega-retailer Discount Tire/America's Tire. Discount Tire operated 910 stores are year-end 2015, compared with the 2,313 stores under Bridgestone's control. On the sales side, Bridgestone Americas solidified its claim to the top spot in United States with estimated tire-related sales of $10.5 billion, measurably ahead of Michelin United States Inc.'s $9.5 billion and Goodyear's $7 billion.

Many tire manufacturers were able to take advantage of the exchange rate versus the U.S. dollar in 2008, and two companies, Continental and Bridgestone, benefited from major acquisitions. (Although it didn’t affect its tire sales, Continental’s purchase of Siemens VDO Automotive AG for 11.4 billion euros greatly increased its overall revenue in 2008.) Year to year, Korean and United Statesn companies gained revenue thanks to the exchange rate. Japanese companies lost revenue. At year’s end, Bridgestone Corp. was the world leader with an estimated $24.8 billion in new tire sales (see Chart 12). Groupe Michelin came in second with $22.5 billion in global tires sales. However, Michelin was the most profitable tire manufacturer based on its net income-to-net sales ratio. Goodyear finished third with an estimated $19.2 billion in tire sales. In addition to the Big Three, Continental, Sumitomo and Cooper had positive income-to-sales ratios. (Two companies that can’t be compared to the others, especially this year, are Yokohama Rubber Co. and Toyo Tire & Rubber Co. Ltd., because their fiscal years end March 31. Their sales figures, however, are included in Chart 12 as well.) Bridgestone Americas was the U.S. and Canadian leader in new tires. At $9 billion, it outdistanced Goodyear ($7.9 billion) and Michelin United States ($7.2 billion). It should be noted, however, that companies with company-owned stores have the advantage of counting retail pricing on tires sold through their outlets. Goodyear has 671, while Bridgestone has 2,047. In addition, retreading revenue is included in the sales figures for Bridgestone, Goodyear, and Michelin.
