ETRMA Members’ replacement tyre sales for the first half 2019

18 July 2019

The European Tyre and Rubber Manufacturers’ Association published today its Members’ European[1] tyre replacement sales numbers for the first half of 2019:

The sales of replacement tyres in the first six months of 2019 are mixed:

  • Passenger car tyre replacement sales continued to decrease in the second quarter, resulting in a total decline of almost 4%.
  • Agricultural tyres showed a sharp decline in the second quarter following a slight increase in the first.  This results into a decline of more than 4% for the first half of the year.
  • Truck tyre replacement sales showed only a small increase after the very good results of the first quarter. The results for the first six months remain positive with +5.4% overall.
  • Motorcycle tyres also showed a small increase for the second quarter resulting in an overall positive performance for the first half of 2019 (+3.2%).

Fazilet Cinaralp, Secretary General of ETRMA, said “The tyre market provides a good picture of the general economic situation. The low passenger car tyre replacement sales mirror new car registrations in the European Union, which also declined in this first semester”.
