The European Tyre and Rubber Manufacturers' Association (ETRMA), Brussels, published tyre replacements sales of its members for the first quarter of 2015. The most important consumer segment experienced a 2% growth compared to the previous year, which, whilst timid, marks a turn-around compared to the last quarter of 2014 (-9%).
The motorcycle segment showed a stronger sales performance with a growth of 7%. These positive results were dampened by the poorer sales performances of truck and agricultural tyres. „The most noteworthy results probably regard truck tyres, whose sales started decreasing in mid 2014. This trend continues into 2015.
At the same time, imports for this segment in the same period to the EU, and in particular from China, have increased markedly over the last 12 months and continued to increase in January 2015″ said Ms Cinaralp, Secretary General of ETRMA.
