ETRMA Members’ Tyre Sales in Europe: Q2-2021

Today the European Tyre and Rubber Manufacturers’ Association published its members’ replacement sales for the second quarter 2021.

Q2 2021 data confirms the positive evolution started in Q1 of this year, reinforcing the recovery trend of the industry.

All segments have registered a positive evolution compared to the second quarter 2020 and this second positive quarter is a good signal for the industry and society, after the unprecedented impact of Covid-19 pandemic. The Consumer Tyres market is driving the growth with 44% increase, followed by the Truck segment (42%) and the Moto and Scooter segment (41%). The agriculture segment is lagging behind (6%)

“The second quarter positive results in all the segments are very promising for the recovery of the tyre industry and for the society. We are relieved and confident to see that, also thanks to the vaccine campaign, the world is restarting to move again”, said Mrs Cinaralp, Secretary General of ETRMA.

If we compare the 2021 data with 2019 same period, we observe that we are slowly going back to the same level, with the Car all seasons tyres leading the trend.
