According to Rachit Gulati, Senior Research Analyst, Research and Consulting, 6Wresearch, "Malaysia tire market is majorly import driven with few local manufacturers present in the country such as Goodyear, Toyo, Continental and Silverstone, These players are manufacturing tires majorly for the export. Influx of imported Chinese tires in Malaysia is increasing at a very good pace due to lack of anti-dumping laws in the country and reduction of import duty on tires by Malaysian Government from 30% to 5% in 2018.”
"Further, Malaysian population is price sensitive and prefer lower priced Chinese tires instead of local brands which is eating up the profitability of local manufacturers and re-traders," Rachit further added.
