South Korea Tire Market

BlueWeave Consulting, a leading strategic consulting and market research firm, in its recent study, expects Nigeria tire market size to grow at a CAGR of 3.42% by 2029. The paradigm shift of people towards private ownership of vehicles, which has a direct impact on the demand for tires in the country, is one of the major reasons propelling the growth of the Nigeria tire market. The growing preference for used cars among middle-class and lower-income people is also contributing significantly to the market’s growth because of the rising need for fast maintenance, repairs, and tire replacement. Also, the expansion of the tire market across Nigeria is being positively impacted by the quickly expanding trade activities, i.e., the depiction of skyrocketing imports of tires & autos from countries, such as the United States, Germany, and the Netherlands. However, limited manufacturing capacity and technological limitations may limit the market growth during the forecast period.

Also, the industry faced a shortage of raw materials and labor, a halt in the import and export of tires and automobiles, decreased consumer demand, and the closure of several manufacturing units, among other issues. Because the duration of these restrictions was unknown, the public demonstrated a paradigm shift in their expenditure towards only essential goods.
