Bridgestone, Goodyear, Pirelli, Cooper and Continental are the largest tyre players in the US, cumulatively accounting for around two-third of the country's tyre sales in 2014.

Continuing rise in automobile sales coupled with presence of almost all major global OEMs is expected to boost tyre demand from both OEM & replacement tyre segment in the coming years. Anticipated increase in automobile production and motorisation rate is expected to further augment OEM as well as replacement tyre demand through 2020.
