Research and Markets has released its Tires in the United States 2008 report covering the aftermarket tire industry. According to the company, the publication goes beyond a discussion of market trends, segment performance and brand sales to include the following insights:

• How offerings vary among competitors and which ones stand a better chance in capturing consumer loyalty
• Why and how market innovators are pushing this market forward in regards to product needs or novelty
• The rise of the retread market and why it is important for the top three industry leaders
• Where growth areas remain for passenger car and light truck tire
• Prevalent trends in television spots for tires, and how to make marketing more distinct
• Building brand loyalty among younger tire buyers
• What households purchase tires the most and who is the decision maker for purchases
• How women can be drawn further into tire purchasing
• Knowing which ethnic groups purchase what tires and why

A number of elements are addressed, such as the tire market is driven by price hikes, not volume; the retread market allows for a new source of revenue; competition from China puts U.S. tire makers at disadvantage; tire manufacturers are turning to premium, value-added tires; and tire consumers prefer independent dealers.

Other issues discussed include revelations that bigger tire sizes are most popular with young buyers; MS tires are predicted to rebound to coincide with HP/UP tire growth; high performance tires are gaining sales momentum; lighter P-metric tires are replacing traditional, heavier tires; auto dealerships are increasing their market share; and Wal-Mart sells one-third of all mass merchant tires.
