2013 and 2014 marked bumper years for the tire industry. On the one hand, the raw material prices in the upstream remained falling; on the other hand, both the European and American markets resuscitated in a moderate manner, leading to an increasing demand from downstream. Take natural rubber, as a kind of raw material in the upstream, for example, the prices continued slipping, down from USD4,616/ton in 2011Q4 to USD2,574/ton in 2013Q4 in the international market. As the same case in Chinese market, the natural rubber price slumped from RMB21, 500/ton in Oct.2013 to RMB14, 380/ton by Mar.2013, a sharp drop of 33%. It is estimated that the price of natural rubber will maintain at a low level or even will see a slight decline in the second half of 2014.

Because of substantial benefits of tire vendors, their enthusiasm for investment in the tire business was boosted greatly. When it comes to bidding dynamics in 2014, new projects and new capacities showed no less fever, with the estimated growth in all-steel tire capacity of 15 million units and in semi-steel tire capacity approximating 100 million units. As a result, China is expected to realize full-steel tire capacity 165 million units and semi-steel tire capacity roughly 600 million units by 2014 yearend when will witness further surplus of industrial structure and fiercer industrial competition.
In addition, due to pervasive haze, there have been provinces and municipalities since 2013H2 voicing their willingness to carry out national ? emission standard. It means that heavy-load trucks in line with national ? emission standard are not allowed to be sold. In comparison, heavy-load trucks in line with national ? emission standard are tens of thousands of higher in price than the equivalents in line with national ? emission standard. Coupled with unsmooth supply of diesel, many consumers in advance bought vehicles in line with national ? emission standard. Overdraft, stocking up and consumption in advance are, as ever, commonplace, which in part contributed to a steep year-on-year rise in sales volume between the full 2013 year and the first two months of 2014. Furthermore, the investment in fixed assets in March and April failed to witness sharp upward mobility, albeit the two marked peak season. With the addition of previous “overdraft”, the heavy-duty truck market in 2014H2 is likely to demonstrate poor performance, and the all-steel radial tire market is expected to embrace oversupply.

The US Farm Tire Market Report: 2014 Edition
The US farm tire market has two segments, replacement (RT) and original equipment (OE) farm tires, and is further categorized into radial and bias types. The replacement segment accounts for the maximum share of the total US farm tire market. Although most of the farm tires are bias ply but the trend is changing towards the usage of radial tires. The demand for radial tires, which are found to be more beneficial in reducing compaction and handling heavy load, has far outstripped supply for last few years. A full range of new farm tires have been developed in conjunction with major agricultural machine manufacturers in response to the continuous evolution of farming techniques. In the coming years, the shipments are estimated to improve due to technological and design developments as well as increase in overall GDP and industrial production index. Key issues affecting farm tire manufacturers include weather patterns, fluctuating commodity prices and high inventory levels.
