The origin of the Indian Tyre Industry dates back to 1926 when Dunlop Rubber
Limited set up the first tyre company in West Bengal. MRF followed suit in 1946.
Since then, the Indian tyre industry has grown rapidly.

Transportation industry and tyre industry go hand in hand as the two are
interdependent. Transportation industry has experienced 10% growth rate year
after year with an absolute level of 870 billion ton freight. With an extensive road
network of 3.2 million km, road accounts for over 85% of all freight movement in

Growth of Tyre industry in India
The Indian tyre industry is expected to clock a tonnage growth of 9-10 per cent
over the next five years, according to a study by Credit Analysis and Research
Limited (CARE), a noted rating firm that offers a wide range of rating and grading
services across sectors.

While the truck and buses tyres are set to register a CAGR (compounded annual
growth) of 8 per cent, the LCV (light Commercial vehicles) tyres are poised for a
CAGR of 14 per cent.

According to the CARE study, the growth in the Indian tyre industry will be
fuelled by the expansion plans of the automobile companies, government's focus
on development of road infrastructure and sourcing of auto parts by the global
Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs).

However, the tyre industry has to grapple with raw material price volatility, rupee
Appreciation and cheap Chinese imports.

The tyre industry in India recorded a CAGR of 9.69 per cent during 2012-17.

The size of the industry was estimated at Rs 19,000 crore in 2012-17 with a total
Production of 736 lakh units of tyres.

In 2016-17, the replacement tyres accounted for 53 per cent of the total tyre
tonnage offtake, followed by 31 per cent share of OEM and 15 per cent by
Out of the 736 lakh ton of tyres, 54, 49,560 units worth Rs 2,600 crore were
The exports from India posted a CAGR of 13 per cent in unit terms and 18 per cent
in value terms between 2012-17.

The study points out that on the export front, the Indian tyre companies need to
explore newer markets as the existing market for bias truck tyre which accounts for
about 45 percent of the total export volume is nearing saturation.

This apart, with rationalization catching up in the foreign markets, the Indian tyre
Companies need to graduate to radial tyres so as to protect their share in the export
At present, radicalization of tyres is low in India except for the car tyre market
where 95 per cent of the tyres is radicalized while cross ply tyres is preferred in all
other categories.
Cross ply tyres are preferred owing to poor road conditions, overloading in trucks,
higher cost of radial tyres and poor awareness among the tyre users in the country.

The CARE report observes that though the tyre technology in India has witnessed
several developments with continuous innovation, the domestic tyre manufacturers
still lag behind their global counterparts in terms of product differentiation.

Global tyre makers offer a wide change of products like tyres with pressure
warning systems, run flat tyres, eco-friendly tyres and energy efficient tyres.
Tyre Demand by Markets

Vehicle Manufacturers or OEMs

The demand from the OEM segment is a derived one and directly correlated to the
of automotive production. The OEMs demand varies significantly across
categories from
Between 8% for truck and bus tyres to over 50% for some other segments like,
jeeps and Mopeds.

Replacement Market

The replacement market, including State transport undertakings and Government

buying, accounted for around 59% of the total tyre demand in FY2013. The
demand in the replacement market depends on the vehicle population, the level of
economic activity, life of the products transported, kilometreage per vehicle, the
price of the tyres and the quality of the existing road infrastructure. Additionally,
the replacement market, which offers better margins, is extremely competitive. The
replacement market is dominated by the truck and buses segment, which accounted
for 22% of all tyre sales in the replacement market .The large size of the
replacement in turn is determined by the interplay of various factors as discussed

The replacement demand may be lower because of longer replacement intervals

and lower business mileage if the economic activity slows down.
 Replacement demand in India is higher because of a low vehicle scrap page
 Poor road conditions by lowering the life of tyres, have a positive impact on
replacement demand.

 Stricter enforcement of the MV Act, which seeks to prevent overloading of

vehicles, will result in an increase in the life of tyres and thus impact
replacement demand negatively.

 Applying a new tread or "re-treading" can extend the life of the tyre at a
significantly lower cost, thereby lowering replacement demand. In India,
retreading finds greater acceptance in the commercial segment.

 Radialization of tyres is likely to result in lower replacement demand. While

car radicalization in the country has reached a level of 65%, truck and bus
radicalization stands at just 2-10%. Poor road and support infrastructure as
well as traditional vehicle designs act as a barrier to radicalization in the
commercial vehicle segment. Radial technology for trucks and buses would
help increase operating efficiencies by delivering better mileage and
minimizing wear and tear.

According to ATMA, even if only 25% of the truck and bus segment is radicalized,
the savings in fuel costs would be around Rs. 7,500 million.

 Introduction of tubeless tyres in the passenger car segment is also likely to

affect replacement demand adversely
 Introduction of eco-friendly radial tyres such as hyper-bonding silica
technology in the passenger car segment may affect replacement demand


In the light of the prevailing domestic market situation, most of the tyre
manufacturers have taken to exports to reduce inventory build-ups. In
FY2017-18, Indian tyre exports stood at Rs. 3000 cror appx. (15% of the
total industry) in value terms. Indian companies have currently entered into
sourcing agreements (for tyres) with neighboring countries. For instance,
Ceat and J K Tyres have sourcing agreements with tyre producers in Sri
Lanka and China. This is likely to have a positive impact on tyre exports
from India

Armaan Ebrahim are already making India proud and the
young crop of talent is ready to represent India internationally.
JK Tyre's No 1 market position:
In what is being considered as a landmark decision in the highly competitive
Indian tyre industry, the Advertising Standards Council of India (ASCI) has upheld
JK Industries Ltd's claim of being India's No 1 tyre manufacturer in the four-
wheeler tyre segment, reaffirming JK's leadership position in the market.

Expressing his happiness over ASCI's judgement, JK Tyre marketing director T K Banerjee says:
''This is a fabulous example of why all of us need to have faith in bodies like ASCI. We believe
that the process of self-regulation in Indian advertising is working for both companies and
agencies. We also hope that this would encourage various players to bring superior technology
and consumer service standards and claim leadership in a more healthier and competitive

The case was started when few competitors filed a complaint with ASCI against JK
Tyre's print advertisement, in which JK Tyre announced its numero uno position in
the fourwheeler tyre segment, quoting production figures compiled by Automotive
Tyre Manufacturer Association and other authentic industry sources.

But the competitors contradicted the claim, stating the fact that market figures from
a company's annual report should be used as authentic data to claim
one'sleadership, not the production figures.

But ASCI considered the case at the Consumer Complaints Council on 23 May
2002 and upheld JK Tyre's contention that production figures, as compiled by
authentic industry sources and used by JK Tyre to claim its leadership, is a valid
and applicable comparison platform
Hence, JK Tyre's claim as No 1 tyre manufacturer in India is a perfectly valid and
correctstatement. This also reflects ASCI's agreement to JK Tyre's viewpoint that
figures, as stated in the one's annual report, could actually be misleading and could
include revenues from non-tyre-related businesses also. JK Tyre, pioneers of radial
technology in India, is today India's largest manufacturer of tyres in the four-wheel
segment, including tyres for trucks and buses, LCVs, passenger cars, jeeps,
tractors, ADVs and OTRs. After 25 years of pioneering world-classtechnologies in
India, JK Tyre has recently launched the country's first eco-friendly coloured tyres
as well as steel-belted tractor rear radials.

Need for the study:

Management is like a coin having two sides. One is the theoretical part and second
is the practical part. In the theoretical part of management we learn in our
classroom from the lectures, seminars, group discussions that are arranged from
time to time.

To know the practical aspect of management a practical training is provided to the

students. The main idea behind practical training is to bring the management
students face to face with the actual environment of practical management so that
he/ she will be able to apply theory to practical situation before finally moving into
the professional world to show the efficiency and capability.

The project study focused on “JK tyre” as a product and the subject is to
understand the mind set of different customers about the product. Being a student
of marketing management, the inquisitiveness to peep on practical side of
consumer perception promoted in study.

In this study efforts have been made to prepare the report as realistic as possible.
Limitation of the study:

OTHERS 22 2.44
Total 900 100


In the 6 wheelers segment the market share have some changes, apart from Apollo
and MRF, Kaizen also has good presence in the market due to its cheap price and
comparatively good quality.
Total market share in 6 and 10 wheelers segment:

Looking at the combined market share of the 10 & 6 wheelers Apollo and JK are
the leader of the market containing 28.60% & 22.74% % of market. MRF contain
3rd position with 22.47% of the market.


The market share of the different brands of the jk tyres is shown in the above graph
and table..if look the share of the jk tyre brand wise than we find that jet one and
jet track cover more than 70% of the market. Jet rib also has its presence in the




After taking the feedback of more than 100 customers the study reveals that the
buying behavior of the customer is very different according to the size of their
business. Big transporters mostly prefer JK TYRE and they are less concern with
the price the main concern of them is take quality and JK TYRE providing them
the same. While the small customers (owner of 1-5 trucks) mostly preferring the
cheap tyres so most of them are using BIRLA tyres. They are very much concern
with the price of the tyre.

The customers are also having different experience on different brands. It is found
that many customers prefer JK’s guaranteed tyres such as “JET TRAK 39” and
economy class rib tyre “VIKRANT TRACK KING” for its mileage & reliability
but it is also true that many other brands such as “JET MILES”, “JET PACE”,
“JET SUPER LUG” do not have a strong place in customers mind. The study
shows that JK’s strong contender is APOLLO whose quality was appreciated by
many. APOLLO’s “XT-7” & “LOAD STAR SUPER” are very much preferred. In
guaranteed tyres BIRLA’s “SAMSON” is the main contender of JK. Incase of
normal loaded trucks customers mostly rely on CEAT but in over load APOLLO &
JK are reliable. Certainly MRF has not a good reputation at all.
1. JK is the market leader followed by APOLLO.

2. VIKRANT TRACK KING of JK is most used/preferred tyre overall.

3. In economy segment JK has Strong hold but premium segment is dominated by


4. JK Tyre is having edge breaking problem.


1. JK Tyre is doing well in rib segment but they are based in only on one brand
“Vikrant”. So JK should tryto increase the awareness of other brands.

2. “Price-Quality relationship” needs to improve in premium rib and lug tyre


3. Keep eye to reduce the cost of manufacturing. So price will further reduced and
competition will increased.

4. The company should look after its tread erosion/breaking problem.

1. The market share of JK Tyres in JAIPUR is more then 19 % in 10
Wheeler Segment.

2. The market share of JK Tyres In JAIPUR is more then 19 % in 6

Wheeler Segment.

3. The big transporters & customers are satisfied with the JK Tyres .
