This recovery is mainly attributed to increased sales of replacement tyres in major regions such as Europe, North America, and China. It was also driven by increased sales of OE tyres as well as high-inch tyres of 18 inches or above in China. The company’s Laufenn brand product portfolio is also a key contributor to driving demand from customers seeking both quality and competitive price.
