Surging Vehicle Ownership and Demand for Replacement Tires Driving the United Kingdom Tire Market
The Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders reported that around 40.4 million cars, vans, trucks, and buses are currently registered in Britain. The demand for light commercial vehicles witnessed the biggest surge with 2.7% growth in the year 2020. Most of these vehicles were being used to transport essential workers, deliveries, and emergency services during the COVID-19 pandemic. Moreover, with increasing vehicle ownership, the demand for tires for replacement purposes is projected to surge during the forecast period.
Flourishing Online Sales Channels Providing Lucrative Growth Opportunities to the Market
