"Rising Demand Amid Spiralling Raw Material Costs"

 

Synopsis in PolishRussian Button

 

The table has turned for the rubber & tire industry. In the post economic-downturn world, consumption is on the rebound with steady demand and signs of growth.

 

"Global sales of passenger-car tires are forecast to grow 6.1 percent this year from 2010, while sales of commercial- vehicle tires are forecast to rise 11 percent, International Rubber Study Group forecast on Jan. 26"
Bloomberg, May 2011

 

"Apollo Tyres reported double-digit revenue growth in the March quarter. This was on account of a recovery in the European tyre demand and sustainable growth in the domestic replacement market."
Rubber Market News, June 2011

 

The market as a whole is looking positive with Asia and Europe expected to see higher growth. But what are the implications for the rubber and tire producers? High material costs and supply shortages are forcing tire producers to rethink their pricing strategy. Climbing natural rubber price and the increase in synthetic rubber is putting a squeeze in the global butadiene market, especially in Europe where it is being converted to SBR to cater to US demand. Furthermore, the impending legislations in Europe are encouraging synthetic rubber producers to expand their capacity in order to meet demand for high-performance tires.

 

CMT's 5th CEE Rubber & Tire Markets addresses critical concerns related to the raw material chain and additional insights on market intelligence, trade dynamics, "green" tires and "end of life" tire management outlook.

 

 

Key focus:

  • Perspectives from global tire producers - Apollo Tyres, Bridgestone & Goodyear Tire & Rubber Co.
  • Detailed analysis of butadiene capacity, supply/demand trend and challenges
  • Snapshots of rubber & tire outlook in Poland, Czech Republic, Russia -key CEE markets
  • Developments in bio-based and sustainable materials for "green" applications
  • Tire recycling scenario - from legislations to market to new product developments
  • Trade barriers for Europe and impact of the EU legislations on trade dynamics
  • Networking opportunities with industry leaders and the value chain of the industry

PRESS RELEASE In Russian

 

На 5-й конференции CEE Rubber & Tire Markets в Вене будут обсуждаться вопросы динамики торговли, анализа рынков, сырьевых цепочек и многое другое


На 5-й конференции CEE Rubber & Tire Markets ("Рынок шин и каучуков в Центральной и Восточной Европе"), которую проводит CMT, ожидается большое число участников и выступления представителей Appolo Tires и Bridgestone, которые поделятся своими знаниями и опытом, относящимися к сегменту каучуков и шин в данном регионе. Кроме того, представители компаний CMAI Europe GmbH, Braskem Europe, LMC International и Styron Europe GmbH обсудят динамику развития спроса и предложения и последствия роста цен на сырьевые материалы.


Вена (Австрия) - 16 сентября - BUSINESS WIRE - Возросшая потребность в синтетическом каучуке и рост цен на природный каучук вызвали активный спрос на бутадиен со стороны европейских производителей и оказывают давление на рынок природного каучука. Производителям стирол-бутадиен-каучука и шин приходится теперь иметь дело с нехваткой материалов и эскалацией затрат. Поэтому на 5-й конференции CEE Rubber & Tire Markets, которая состоится в Вене 20-21 октября 2011 года, будет сделан акцент на ключевых тенденциях и перспективах развития рынка бутадиена и природного каучука. Ключевой проблемой, которая будет обсуждаться на полуторадневной конференции, являются цены на синтетический и натуральный каучуки, подскочившие на фоне роста сырьевых цен и проблем с урожаем. На конференции речь будет идти также о прогнозах развития региональных экономик в Центральной и Восточной Европе, "зеленых" тенденциях на рынке шин, нормативной базе ЕС и ее влиянии на шинный сегмент. Будет дана и оценка того, чего следует ждать в 2012 году.

 

Пятое мероприятие CMT в серии конференции, посвященных рынку каучуков и шин в Центральной и Восточной Европе, проводится вслед за недавно завершившейся азиатской конференцией, на которой Роберт Симмонс (Robert Simmons), глава дивизиона LMC International Ltd, занимающегося исследованиями в области каучуков и шин, сделал содержательный доклад на тему "Перспективы развития шинного рынка на Американском континенте и в Европе и его влияние на индустрию в глобальном масштабе" ("Tire market outlook in Americas and Europe and Impact on global trade"). По существу, доклад, записанный на видео, является превосходным анонсом того, чего можно ожидать на предстоящей венской конференции. Помимо прочего, в нем анализируются:


 причины, по которым европейские рынки выставляют барьеры в шинном сегменте
 факторы, подталкивающие развитие замещающих продаж, и
 то, как европейские рынки справляются с рецессией

LANXESS expands capacities for high-performance rubber & environmentally friendly 'green tires'

Posted on : 14 Oct, 2011

 

Lanxess expects a hike in demand for high-performance rubbers due to the European Union tire labeling legislation that

comes into effect in 2012.

 

Due strong demand for synthetic rubbers used in winter tires, Axel Heitmann, the Lanxess CEO, confirmed the group’s earnings forecast for the full-year 2011.  He announced, that with the  increase in EBITDA  pre exceptionals by roughly 20 percent, the third quarter will go smoothly as compared to the third quarter of 2010. The trend towards mobility is supported by internal market studies. According to the latest forecasts, around 2 billion tires will be manufactured by 2015 compared with around 1.6 billion at present. This is an increase of some 25 percent for the tire industry.

 

Because of the European Union tire labeling initiative, the market share of ”green tires” made of high-performance rubber will increase from its present 35 percent to around 50 percent of the overall tire market.

Yokohama Rubber Strengthens Initiatives for the EU Tire Labeling System. More Expert Updates at 5th CEE Rubber & Tire Markets in Vienna.

Posted on : 05 Aug, 2011

 

Yokohama Rubber Co., Ltd. announced that it would be strengthening its initiatives for the tire labeling system scheduled to commence in Europe in 2012. The system aims to better regulate the environmental performance and safety of tire products. Yokohama Rubber strongly supports the intentions behind the system and will proactively develop higher grades of tire products as it encourages the spread of environmentally friendly, safe tires.

 

The EU tire labeling system is a grading system initiated by the EU European Commission. It represents an application to tire products of similar systems for consumer electronics introduced by EU countries to reduce environmental load. Products are graded according to their rolling resistance performance (fuel economy), wet grip performance (safety) and external noise performance (environmental performance), and display their grades in labeling.
