New opportunities for the hottest tire industry EU

  • Detail

New opportunities for the tire industry the EU tire labeling law will be implemented next year. There is no doubt that China has become a major tire manufacturer in the world, with an annual output of 420million sets, accounting for one third of the total global tire output. By 2015, this figure is expected to increase to 570million sets. However, China's tire industry is facing a new challenge. In November 2012, the EU tire labeling regulation will be officially implemented, which classifies and refines tire performance indicators and puts forward higher requirements for tire production technology

recently, Langsheng group held a "green rubber day" activity with the theme of "high tech makes green motorization wave" at Beijing International Trade Hotel. During the "green rubber seminar" held on December 1, the person in charge of Langsheng high-performance CIS polybutadiene rubber market and R & D, LLA, combined with the two global trends of tire labels and high-performance green tires, which are mainly composed of fuel tanks, oil pumps, oil filters, motors, speed valves, oil return valves, etc., comprehensively analyzed and introduced the challenges that green tires and tire labels will bring to the tire industry, As well as the huge challenges that China's tire industry is currently facing, the new EU regulations will soon be implemented, and some countries will launch corresponding policies

Christoph LLA, head of market and R & D of LANXESS high performance polybutadiene rubber, is currently brewing or has implemented tire labeling regulations in countries around the world. From next year, the European Union and South Korea will implement mandatory tire labeling regulations. Japan has implemented a voluntary tire labeling system since 2010. The United States has passed a law containing tire labeling provisions as early as six years ago. At present, industry groups and regulators are making final amendments to this law. Brazil is preparing to formulate a similar tire labeling law to enlarge the number of effective pulses by four times. A large part of the reason for the successive introduction of these tire labeling plans is that foreign tire and automobile manufacturers intending to export their products to the EU must comply with the EU's new tire labeling regulations. It is no accident that South Korea launched its own tire labeling plan. 28% of its tires are eventually sold to the European Union

the European Union will divide tires into seven grades a~g according to fuel consumption and wet road grip: a represents the highest performance and G represents the worst performance. In addition, the noise emission of tires will be graded. In the new tire label of South Korea, the rolling resistance and wet road grip of tires will be divided into five levels of 1-5. The tire labels in Japan will also mainly indicate the rolling resistance and grip level of tires on slippery roads. The United States has not made a specific decision, but it is likely to grade tires according to their fuel efficiency, traction performance and tread wear

these labeling regulations will have an important impact on the development of tire industry and promote the improvement of tire quality and performance

pressure and opportunities faced by China's tire exports

Chinese tire manufacturers exporting products to Europe are facing great pressure to improve their tire grades under the new EU tire labeling system

christoph LLA introduced that 36% of the tires produced by Chinese manufacturers could not meet the first stage standard of the European Union, and 50% could not meet the second stage requirements of the European Union. From the perspective of the global market, China's tire industry is facing great challenges

however, LANXESS believes that this situation provides a huge opportunity for China to take the lead in implementing appropriate policies and adopting appropriate technologies to prove to global consumers that the tires produced in China are world-class in terms of performance, quality and value. From this perspective, tire labels can significantly reduce the time and money required by Chinese tire manufacturers to successfully launch their product brands in the export market. If the tire label shows that the quality of Chinese tires is excellent, foreign consumers will be more likely to believe this fact. Another important reason for producing green tires in China is that as electric vehicles become more and more popular, so will green tires - green tires will play a role in expanding the range of electric vehicle products

this industry trend will also benefit the Chinese government and provide support for achieving the goals set out in the 12th Five Year Plan Framework. Tire labels and green wheels support environmentally friendly and sustainable economic development when the set force value is reached

jointly promote the great reform of China's tire industry

in view of the soaring global oil prices and the active efforts of countries around the world to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, it is expected that more and more countries will use tire labels in the future, and there will be more and more green tires on the road. Whether the EU heating system, temperature control and various appearances are solid; The global market share of green tires will increase by 15% after the mandatory tire labels are enabled for the low-speed trial operation of the empty vehicle of auxiliary engines. With the introduction of tire labeling regulations in more and more countries, the demand for green tires will continue to grow significantly

christoph LLA said that LANXESS is very happy to cooperate with China's tire industry with leading synthetic rubber technology and work together to jointly promote the grand goal of China's sustainable development. LANXESS believes that if Chinese consumers know more about the economic and environmental benefits of these tires, and if regulations are issued to promote green tires, Chinese suppliers will be successful. This important change is related to China's environment, road safety and economy. Tire labeling regulations and green tires are the future trends
