Resource: Product Group Report: remanufacturing of tyres
This 2006 report examines the practice and impacts of tyre remoulding in the UK.
Monday, 27th July 2009
Truck re-treading is a well established industry which thrives in the cost conscious commercial fleet market. However, there appears to be very little room for growth in this market. Conversely the car tyre re-tread industry only occupies a niche section of the market. This sector struggles to compete with the imported budget tyres and also suffers from a poor image. However, there is a significant potential for growth in this market and, due to its size, would result in significant savings in terms of CO2e. The aerospace industry has been successfully re-treading its tyres for decades. If the car re-tread industry can send the message that the tyres they are producing are a quality product, then there is significant potential for this market to grow.
