Driving Factors

The growth and performance of Japan's automotive industry have a direct impact on tire demand. As the country's automotive sector evolves and expands, so does the demand for tires for passenger vehicles, commercial vehicles, and motorcycles. Japan has a high vehicle ownership rate, with many cars, trucks, buses, and motorcycles on the road. Because of the high vehicle density, there is a constant demand for tire replacements and upgrades, which supports the tire market. Tire replacement and maintenance are required on a regular basis to ensure vehicle safety and performance. As tires wear out over time, vehicle owners in Japan replace them on a regular basis, contributing to the market's consistent demand.


Restraining Factors

Japan is known for producing high-quality tires, but it faces competition from tire imports, particularly from other Asian countries. Imported tires may offer competitive pricing and quality standards, posing a challenge to domestic tire manufacturers. The cost of raw materials used in tire manufacturing, such as rubber and oil derivatives, is susceptible to fluctuations in global commodity markets. High raw material costs can have an impact on tire production costs, resulting in higher tire prices.
