The GCC tire industry offers the assurance of high-quality tires with superior durability, owing to which their demand is escalating swiftly. Hence, its growth prospect in gulf countries is highly opportunistic for the leading tire manufacturers over the coming years.
The GCC Tire Market is projected to grow at a CAGR of around 4.8% during the forecast period, i.e., 2022-27. The growth of the market is likely to be driven primarily by the rapidly increasing vehicle sales across the GCC region, owing prominently to the improving economy, changing living standards, & growing preference for private vehicle ownership, i.e., propelling the demand for vehicles and directly impacting the tire market.
Besides, the mounting focus of governments of different countries across the region on infrastructural developments is displaying a rapid acceleration in construction projects, i.e., surging the need for heavy vehicles and, as a result, for tires. It is instigating tire manufacturers to increase their production capacities and meet the increasing end-user requirements, thereby driving the market. Moreover, favourable government policies are playing a vital role in attracting foreign investments, establishing new production facilities, & enhancing the import & export business of tires & automobiles.
Furthermore, with the mounting influx of tourism, pilgrims, & migrants across the GCC, the construction of residential complexes, hotels, shopping malls, highways, & airports, among others, is also escalating swiftly. It, in turn, is augmenting the demand for heavy construction equipment and positively influencing the tire market across the GCC region.
