The South African Tyre Industry: The tyre industry is worth approximately R30bn per annum and is one of the key supporting industries for the domestic automotive industry. Although the industry has the capacity to manufacture 18 million tyres per annum, only 11 million tyres are manufactured locally. While 2 million locally manufactured tyres are exported mainly to SADC countries, 40% of all passenger car tyres and 60% of all truck tyres are imported.

Investment into the Manufacturing Sector: Despite the volatile Rand and threats from cheaper imported tyres from the East, the South African tyre manufacturing industry has managed to secure investments of more than R4bn over the last four years. The most recent of these investments is Sumitomo Rubber South Africa’s R2bn two-phase investment to upgrade, modernise and expand its tyre manufacturing plant in Ladysmith, KwaZulu-Natal. The R910m second phase expansion will focus on the manufacture of truck and bus tyres which currently have to be imported from the parent company’s plants in Japan and China. In June 2016 Dunlop SA officially opened its new 12,500m² warehouse in Durban, which has storage capacity for more than 200,000 tyres and which houses a 650m² technical examination centre for on-site quality testing.
