Industry Analysis & Industry Trends

The industry has contracted steadily during the past five years, despite stimulus from rising vehicle manufacturing activity and an anticipated increase in the number of motor vehicles registered in the United Kingdom during the period.

The projected fall in global rubber prices also dampened industry growth, as it forced operators to lower selling prices. Industry revenue is expected to decline at a compound annual rate of 4.7% over the five years through 2016-17.

The South West

The South West of England is home to approximately 10 tyre manufacturing sites, representing 20% of industry establishments, including Cooper Tire and Rubber Co Europe's manufacturing plant in Wiltshire. Industrial clusters around Bristol and relatively cheap land prices in comparison to those in London and the South East make the region attractive to industry operators.
