Major automotive OEMs such as Mercedes-Benz, Toyota, Honda, Suzuki, Nissan, Peugeot, Volvo, BMW, Ford, Renault, Hino, Land Rover, Mazda, etc., have established their manufacturing plants in Malaysia to address domestic and export demand for automobiles in neighboring countries, thereby driving huge demand for automotive tires in the country.
