"Japan is a country in East Asia. It is one of the largest automotive producers in the world. The production scale of the automobile tyre industry in Japan has steadily increased and it is also supported by generally firm demand in the domestic market and active export. Growth in the tyre market increased due to the increasing demand of the people of Japan for automobiles and also due to the support of the government for making policies for safety purposes. A tyre is a ring-shaped component that surrounds a wheel's rim. Tires are designed to support the weight of the vehicle, absorb road shocks, transmit traction, torque and braking forces to the road surface and maintain and change the direction of travel. Tires are made of resilient rubber and filled with compressed air. From the viewpoint of automobile safety, various standards have been specified regarding tyres, because tyres are the automobile’s important part, and the guidelines for the items to be complied with in usage and maintenance of automobile tyres are specified in """"Standards for Selection, Usage, and Maintenance of Automobile Tyres"""" by JATMA to ensure and enlighten the tyre's safety.Japan's tire market is a dynamic and technologically advanced sector, reflecting the country's renowned automotive industry and commitment to innovation. With a strong demand for high-quality tires, Japan benefits from its status as a major producer of automobiles, motorcycles, and commercial vehicles. Renowned Japanese automakers like Toyota, Honda, Nissan, and Mazda drive the domestic demand for tires, often collaborating with tire manufacturers to develop tires tailored to their vehicle models. Innovation and technological advancements are key characteristics of the Japanese tire market, with a focus on high-performance tires with superior grip, handling, and durability. The country's distinct seasonal tire market focuses on summer and winter tires, with significant variations in climate throughout the year. Japanese tire manufacturers invest heavily in research and development to create eco-friendly tires with low rolling resistance, contributing to fuel savings and aligning with Japan's commitment to environmental conservation. The Japanese government promotes tire safety and regulation, with tire labeling requirements providing consumers with essential information on fuel efficiency, wet grip, and noise levels. Japan has strict regulations and standards governing tire safety and performance, ensuring the highest levels of safety on the roads.Japan's network of tire retailers and service centers offers a wide range of tire brands and models, and online platforms provide convenient access to tires and related services. Their reputation for superior quality, technological expertise, and innovation has led to significant export opportunities, contributing to the country's tire industry's global competitiveness.Japanese tire manufacturers are also involved in joint ventures and partnerships with international automakers, focusing on unique vehicle requirements such as reduced rolling resistance, extended battery life, and enhanced safety features.

According to the report titled """"Japan Tyre Market Overview, 2026"""" published by Bonafide Research, the tyre market of the country is expected to grow at a CAGR of around 3.75% by the end of the forecast period. In Japan, different types of tyres are classified on the basis of different segments. On the basis of design, radial tyres and bias ply tyres are available. Bias ply has low demand among the population of Japan because a bias ply tyre doesn't respond as well to cornering forces as the width of the sidewall increases and it is more sensitive to overheating. Both OEM tyres and replacement tyres are classified on the basis of end use. The replacement tyre has high market growth in Japan due to its low cost and it provides a sufficient amount of traction force on the road surface. On the basis of vehicle type, passenger cars, commercial-light weight, commercial-heavy, two-wheelers, three-wheelers, and other tyres are available in the Japanese market. Commercial-lightweight tyres have a high market share after passenger cars due to increasing demand for commercial-lightweight vehicles for business purposes like transportation of goods and services. Original Equipment Manufacturer tyres are the tyres that a vehicle was originally equipped with from the factory. To select OEM tyres, automakers work with tyre manufacturers to choose or develop tyres that complement the characteristics and purposes of the vehicle. Replacement tyres are those that you purchase to replace the OE tyres. They are also known as aftermarket tyres. OEM tyres have low market attractiveness because they have limitations such as off-road driving, terrain trips, and other things that replacement tyres can easily overcome. The market attractiveness of OEM tyres is expected to grow gradually in the forecasted period. A radial tyre is a particular design of vehicular tire. In this design, the cord plies are arranged at 90 degrees to the direction of travel, or radially. In bias ply tyres, there are nylon belts for the tyre constructed at a 30–45-degree angle to the tread centre line. The radial tyre is best for greater distances at high speed because it dissipates heat better than a bias ply tyre. Radial tyre market share has been high in recent years, and it is expected to grow rapidly in the forecasted period. Passenger car tyres are used in cars and vans. These types of tyres provide low rolling resistance and increase performance. Commercial-lightweight tyres are basically used for business purposes, like cargo vans. In trucks and buses, commercial-heavy tyres are applied, which provide an efficient traction force on the road on heavy loads. Two-wheeler and three-wheeler tyres are varied by their size and provide high fuel-efficiency and robust grip on the road. The CAGR of passenger car tyres was high from 2015 to 2020, and during the forecasted period it will be expected to be at its maximum. In Japan, the growth of the tyre market is due to factors like high sales of automobiles and innovation in technology manufacturing by tyre makers. Volatile costs of raw materials and retarding development have restricted the growth of the tyre market.
The Yokohama Rubber Company was established in Japan in 1917 as the second Japanese tyre company after Dunlop tyres. Yokohama tyres are a good choice for many drivers. The company offers a wide range of products, but consumers tend to prefer its performance and all-season models. Yokohama’s tread life warranties are standard, as are its prices. Due to the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic, the manufacturing and supply chains were completely disrupted due to the nationwide lockdown imposed by the government in 2020. The operations of the market, such as production, sales, and marketing, were directly hindered, incurring huge losses for the tyre manufacturers.
