Chennai, India - The second outing of the Tyrexpo India show will take place at the Chennai Trade Centre, Chennai, India from 9-11 July 2013. The event will focus on increased radialisation of TBR (truck and bus radials) in India.
â€œIndian and international tyre manufacturers are making huge investments in new production capacity for TBR radials for the domestic market,â€ says Paul Farrant, managing director of ECI International. â€œWe want to reflect that dynamic trend at Tyrexpo India by creating a focus on truck tyre manufacturing, with tyre makers, technology experts, materials suppliers and service providers making a contribution to the show.â€
Between them, Indian tyre makers Apollo, BKT, Bridgestone India, Ceat, Dunlop India, Falcon Tyres and JK Tyre are in the process of commissioning or building more than a dozen new tyre factories, with many of them dedicated to producing truck and bus radials. Industry estimates predict that by 2013 there will be an additional 25 percent manufacturing capacity for TBR radial tyres.
