A recent study conducted by the strategic consulting and market research firm, BlueWeave Consulting, revealed that the UAE tire market is estimated to grow at a CAGR of 8.5% during the forecast period. UAE tire market is primarily driven by increasing demand for private vehicles. The growth of the market is also attributable to the increasing foreign investment and consumers’ high purchasing power. Furthermore, favorable government initiatives and strict tire safety regulations, which require tire replacements every five years is also powering the UAE’s tire market. The UAE authorities prohibit the use of used tires on safety grounds which further acts as a driving factor for the tire market. However, increasing pollution caused by discarded rubber tires may act as a huge restraining factor for the UAE tire market.

Growing Demand for Commercial Vehicles strengthening The UAE Tire Market

According to an estimate, there were around 235 thousand commercial vehicles sold in the UAE in 2019. The demand for commercial vehicles is increasing at a high rate in the country, mainly because of the rapid economic development. Light and medium-sized vehicles are being used in the country to transport light goods while heavy vehicles such as trucks are being deployed around oil fields as well as commercial sites. Furthermore, the increasing popularity of cab services and ride-hailing services in the UAE is also boosting the demand for commercial passenger cars. Thus, with an increase in commercial vehicles, tire demand is also expected to surge during the forecast period.

Expanding Automobile Production in the UAE is Driving Market Growth

With an increasing focus on economic diversification, the UAE government is significantly investing in automobile production in the country. Locally produced vehicles are few in number, but demand is high; thus, the country imports vehicles to keep up with demand, which drives up prices. Consequently, many leading car companies, such as Ashok Leyland, W Motors, Hafilat Industries, etc., are establishing their production plants in the UAE to take advantage of this untapped market.
