Industrial, Farm and Specialist Tyres: The off-road commercial segments attract high value tyre products and services, making for plenty of opportunities for manufacturers and distributors of a wide range of products. While these segments have not been immune from the effects of coronavirus pandemic lockdowns, they are often a world away from the factory shutdowns and dormant vehicles that have afflicted tyre businesses related to private transportation. In July’s issue, Tyres & Accessories looks at the ways in which tyre companies have helped support this effort, as well as the broader issues affecting tyres’ interactions with this broad church of industries.
Aftermarket: The last time Tyres & Accessories took a close look at the aftermarket sector back in July 2019, we took the optimistic view that the UK aftermarket space would be able to weather the Brexit storm. Of course, back then Brexit and trans-Atlantic trade wars were the most significant pressures on aftermarket parts segment. Now, however, things are considerable more complex and unpredictable. So, check out the July 2020 edition’s aftermarket feature for further analysis on the shape of the UK aftermarket along with the latest news and product features.
