)-- Russia is one of the largest emerging economies in Europe and is the second largest automotive market in the region, behind Germany. The increasing urbanization, rising disposable income and low density of vehicles are contributing significantly to the country’s automotive market. During the last 2-3 years, the automotive industry in Russia witnessed a significant increase in the demand for passenger cars. It is expected that by 2020, Russia would become the largest automotive market in Europe and fifth largest automotive market in the world.
According to a recently published report by TechSci Research “Russia Tyre Market Forecast and Opportunities 2018,” the tyre market in Russia is expected to grow at the CAGR of 13% in terms of volume during 2013-2018. The passenger car segment accounts for the majority share in the country’s tyre market. Nizhnekamskshina is the largest domestic tyre manufacturer in the country.
