NEW DELHI (NewsRise) — Four years after it entered India, Taiwan’s Maxxis launched its first tire manufacturing plant in the country, intensifying competition in the red-hot two-wheeler market.
Maxxis, a unit of Taipei-listed Cheng Shin Rubber Industry, will initially produce tires for scooters and motorcycles at the $400-million factory in Sanand, a fast-developing auto hub in the western Indian state of Gujarat.
The plant can produce up to 20,000 tires and 40,000 tubes per day, the company said in a statement Thursday.
Over the last year or so it has been broadly noted that the SUV/4×4 sector of the tyre market has been impressively resilient. Not just from the relatively local impact of the UK’s Brexit vote and resulting inflation and slump in certain motor vehicle sectors (in the UK at least). The tyre industry’s also been faced with escalating raw materials costs at a global level.
