Japan has been famous for producing top quality cars, trucks, buses, and other commercial vehicles for a long time now. Of course, there is no concept of a vehicle without having tires. Japan has some of the largest car manufacturers such as Toyota, Nissan, Honda, Suzuki, Isuzu, Hino, Mazda, etc. The largest number of Japanese cars are dismantled in the country. That makes the job of used tire exporters so easy. Japanese Auto World can supply a large number of tires to our car tire customers all over the world.
Japanese tire manufacturers produced around 163 Million tires in 2018.
The Japanese tire market can be segmented into replacement tires and the OEM segment. The market is currently dominated by replacement tires which currently account for 61% of the total sales volumes. Currently, around 71% of the total replacement tire volumes are accounted for by passenger cars. Passenger cars were followed by light trucks, and truck and bus tires.
The market for replacement tires in Japan is driven by usage patterns and replacement cycles. The market for OEM tires on the other hand is driven by new automobile sales and exports.
Japan currently represents a manufacturing hub for some of the world’s largest automobile companies such as Toyota, Honda, Nissan, Suzuki, Mitsubishi, Kawasaki, Mazda, Yamaha, Subaru, Isuzu, etc. This represents a major catalyst for the OEM tire market.
