Report Description

According to the OICA, Kuwait registered the highest vehicle motorization rate (for passenger cars and commercial vehicles) of 727 vehicles per 1,000 people amongst al GCC countries in 2013. Kuwait is one of the wealthiest countries in the world, with more than 95% of urban population. Automobile sales in Kuwait grew at a CAGR of over 8% during 2010-2014 and are poised to demonstrate a similar trend during the forecast period. This growth in automobile sales is being supported by rising disposable income of people in Kuwait, increasing urbanization and growing infrastructure and construction sector in the country. Due to absence of automobile manufacturing in Kuwait, tire market is completely dependent on replacement demand. 

According to “Kuwait Tyre Market Forecast & Opportunities, 2020’’, high vehicle ownership, growing vehicle fleet and increasing automobile sales are projected to drive the tire market in Kuwait during 2015-2020. In 2014, Kuwait tire market was dominated by flagship brands. Increasing penetration of low priced Chinese tire brands is projected to bite into the share of branded tires in the coming years. Hot and humid climatic conditions in the country have shortened the replacement period of tires to around 1.5 years, thereby driving growth in Kuwait tire market. Apart from major global tire manufacturers such as Bridgestone, Michelin, Yokohama, Cooper, Hankook, Toyo etc., demand for tires in Kuwait is also addressed by Chinese brands such as Boto, Westlake, Odyking, Karo, etc. “Kuwait Tyre Market Forecast & Opportunities, 2020” report elaborates following aspects of tire market expansion in Kuwait:
