Press Release

Two-Wheeler Segment Continues to Lead the Sri Lanka Tire Market by 2028

Increasing demand for green tires and growing transportation industry are factors driving the growth of Sri Lanka tire market in the forecast period 2024-2028.

According to TechSci Research report, “Sri Lanka Tire Market - By Country, Competition Forecast and Opportunities, 2018-2028F,” Sri Lanka Tire Market is expected to grow at slower pace in initial years in the country.

Tire manufacturers generally provide radial and bias tires as alternatives for better performance. Bias tires contain stacked layers of ply cords at an angle to form the tire's carcass, whereas radial tires have ply cords that radiate out from the tire's centre. Radial tires additionally provide more comfort at greater speeds due to their soft sidewalls, which also absorbs the force of imperfections in the road surface. Bias tires, on the other hand, have more solid sidewalls and can support more weight.

Sri Lanka has specialised in the long-term production of high-end medical gloves, tough tires, and shoe sole crepe for the international market. Throughout the past few years, there has been a steady improvement in Sri Lanka's rubber industry. Sri Lanka accounts for 1.2% of the world's total rubber production, according to the Sri Lanka Export Development Board. Despite difficulties related to the pandemic that caused a major decline in Sri Lankan export revenue in April 2020, Sri Lanka Customs data shows that in June 2022, merchandise export revenue increased 20% year over year to USD 1,208.2 million. Also, as the automobile industry is expanding rapidly, there is a sharp increase in demand for smart tires and environment friendly tires. Several manufacturing companies invested in tire industry research and development during the previous years to accommodate the rising demand. The growth of new technology and the use of electric vehicles is expected to benefit the tyre business in Sri Lanka in the next years.

Several companies are investing in tire technology research and development as well as network expansion across the nation. Three of CEAT Kelani Holdings' manufacturing facilities received IATF 16949 accreditation in 2022, acknowledging that their products adhere to exceptionally high standards and supply chain effectiveness. This made CEAT Sri Lanka the first tire manufacturing group in the nation to be qualified for this prestigious international certification which raises its brand value and demand in Sri Lanka tire market.  The second phase of Global Rubber Industries' (GRI) USD 100 million investment to increase the manufacturing capacity at its specialty tire factory in Sri Lanka, was finished in July 2022. With expanded production capacity, the company's agriculture tire category should be able to meet the rising demand in the USA, Europe, and Australia markets, producing 60MT per day. Further, with the development of run-flat tires, vehicles may travel a given distance even after losing air due to surface damage from cuts or punctures. The Michelin Unique Puncture-Proof Tire System (UPTIS) is a wheel/tire system that is puncture-proof without compressed air, primarily for automobile cars and light vans. From above factors, Sri Lanka Tire Market is anticipated to grow at a moderate growth rate in the upcoming years.
