World Tyre Forecast Service

LMC’s World Tyre Forecast Service provides the most complete source of information available on the changing pattern of production, demand and international trade in tyres. It gives a detailed supply/demand picture of 70 individual national and regional markets, plus world totals with forecasts for the next five years.

Three separate vehicle categories are covered: passenger cars, light commercial vehicles (with a gross vehicle weight of up to 6 tonnes) and medium/heavy commercial vehicles (with a gross vehicle weight of more than 6 tonnes). For each vehicle category, the Service provides ten years of actual data, estimates for the current year and forecasts out five years, covering:

  • OE tyre sales
  • Replacement tyre sales
  • Tyre production
  • Tyre trade
  • Vehicle parc (population)
  • Vehicle production
  • New vehicle sales

The service now contains estimates of production capacity and capacity utilisation by country for light vehicles and medium/heavy trucks. Estimates are presented from 2009 and include forecasts to 2023.
