China tire market is driven by the growing vehicle usage across the country, lined with the increasing research and development to produce more efficient tires that adhere to standards and regulations. Major tire manufacturers are investing heavily in the production of state-of-the-art tires by integrating smart technologies such as shape memory alloy radial technology (SMART), tires equipped with pressure sensors technology, etc., for optimum functioning of tires providing drivers a superior driving experience. Mika Penttilä, Head of Digital Technology of Nokian Tyres stated that “If a car does not have an active driver to ensure that the tires are safe to use, safety needs to be measured in another way”. The other ways to measure safety are the sensors and smart technology tires developed lately.   The increasing penetration of electric vehicles across the country is escalating the country's automobile fleet, consequently driving the sales of tires in the country, airing the China tire market growth. Tires are critical components of an automobile and need to be replaced when needed. The inappropriate condition of a tire can lead to slipping, which can result in life-threatening accidents. As a result, China tire market is getting a fair share from the replacement market. The replacement ratio of the tire will get reduced by the development in innovative technologies, and by this China tire aftermarket growth is anticipated to get hamper.

In 2020, tires sales declined in China compared to 2019 as the country underwent strict lockdown in the second and third quarters of 2020 to counter the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic. Many industries, including the tire manufacturing industry, have faced a consequential decrease in the production of tires due to full or partial lockdown restrictions imposed by the national government to reduce the spreading of coronavirus. Owing to lockdown declarations to curtail the spread of the COVID-19, almost all the automotive factories halted their vehicle production, consequently hampering the sales of OEM tires. Moreover, due to lockdown restrictions and increasing work from home activities, the replacement tire market hit in 2020. Owing to the increasing adoption of electric vehicles in the country and technological developments, China tire market is anticipated to recover in around two years.
