The growth potential of tyre and automotive repair industry in Africa is staggeringly exciting

The tyre industry, in which manufacturers alone were contributing close to R20 billion rand a year to the South African economy in 2014 and creating around 6,500 direct and 35,000 indirect jobs, is showing strong growth. The African tyre market is expected to surpass $8 billion by 2022, creating a wealth of new growth and job opportunities.

Meanwhile, the global automotive repair and maintenance services market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 5.6% from 2016 – 2026, to exceed US$750 Billion over the next 10 years, according to a Future Market Insights report.

With this in mind, SingEx Exhibitions strategically placed one of the series in this market to serve as the region’s converging platform for knowledge sharing, innovation and technology showcase as well as business networking within the communities in the entire tyre ecosystem.

“The growth potential of Africa’s automotive repair and maintenance services market is truly exciting. There are new and growing business opportunities across the continent, particularly as vehicle owners seek to extend the lifespans of their existing vehicles, and as retreads and tyre recycling become increasingly attractive business opportunities. Tyrexpo Africa 2018, in conjunction with GarageXpo Africa 2018 will bring together the continental marketplace, amalgamating the platforms into a true one-stop sourcing and networking hub for the entire tyre and automotive ecosystem.” said Mr Ian Wu.

Tyrexpo Africa is an event as part of the Tyrexpo series held in various parts of the world, including Singapore, India (Chennai and New Delhi), and South Africa in helping to drive the global tyre industry through new growth opportunities.
