Japan automotive industry is one of the most prominent and largest industries in the world. Around 9% of Japan’s working population is involved in auto-industry related work, either directly or indirectly. The country is home to four major tire companies - Bridgestone Corporation, Sumitomo Rubber Industries, Toyo Tire & Rubber Company, and Yokohama Rubber Company, all of which specialize in manufacturing of tires for a variety of vehicles. Due to exceptional performance of these companies at both domestic and global level, and development of new varieties of tire, Japan tire industry is growing at a significant pace. The country also hosts a number of large automobile manufacturers including Toyota, Honda, Daihatsu, Nissan, Suzuki, Mazda, Mitsubishi, Subaru, Isuzu, Kawasaki, Yamaha, and Mitsuoka. These companies hold a large share in global automotive market and are contributing to the surge in demand for tires in Japan. 

According to “Japan Tyre Market Forecast & Opportunities, 2020”, Japan tire market is estimated to surpass USD26 billion in 2015. Growing demand for small & mini passenger cars, high vehicle ownership and increasing demand for better quality tires would influence Japan tire market over the next few years. Passenger car tire market is the dominant segment in the country’s tire market followed by light commercial vehicle tire market and heavy commercial vehicle tire market. Japan tire market is predominantly a replacement driven market owing to large vehicle fleet and high vehicle ownership ratio. Prominent export markets for Japan tire manufacturers are Europe, North America and Middle East. These regions account for more than half of the country’s total tire exports. On the other hand, Japan imports most of its tires from major tire manufacturing Asian countries like Thailand, Indonesia and Malaysia. Kanto and Kansai regions of Japan held a cumulative market share of more than 45%, in volume terms in 2014. Both these regions have high population growth and economic concentration which makes them the largest contributors to tire sales in Japan. Kanto and Kansai regions are expected to remain dominant in the market over the forecast period.“Japan Tyre Market Forecast and Opportunities, 2020” discusses the following aspects:
