Furthermore, evolving technology is set to overhaul the future of tyres by increasing mergers and acquisitions to expand retail networks, increasing use of tyre pressure monitoring systems (TPMS), and increasing use of digital platforms where consumers purchase products through e-commerce. There will be an increasing trend of switching to “green tyres” as an environment-friendly option, decreases in the selling price of small tyres, and strategic collaborations between tyre manufacturers with famous non-tyre entities to promote brand value.
