Industry Report - Industry Analysis Chapter

Over the five years to 2017, revenue for the Tire Dealers industry is anticipated to trend higher. Since individuals cannot delay replacing their vehicle’s tires indefinitely, the industry is somewhat resilient to economic downturns. As economic conditions improved, such as rising disposable income, consumers were able to release pent-up demand for replacement tires. Moreover, growth in vehicle miles driven is expected to cause additional wear and tear on tires, accelerating the tire replacement process.
