Rubber tyre market in Brazil and opportunities for Sri Lanka

Brazil's automotive tire market is driven by increase in automotive production & sales across different vehicle segments and competition growth among tire manufacturers. Recently, the automobile industry has been experiencing a rapid growth owing to speedy industrialization, which has led to an increase in the sale of commercial vehicles such as trucks, tractors, and trailers. In addition, rise in disposable income of people and improvements in standard of living are the factors that increase the sale of luxurious passenger cars and other types of such vehicles. Furthermore, sales of electrical vehicles are expected to increase as the Brazilian government promotes usage of electrical vehicles in the country to reduce usage of fossil fuel. Brazil is the second largest tyre importer in Latin America after Mexico.
