Indian tyre making giant, Apollo Tyres, is aggressively pushing towards an increased market share. After launching various manufacturing and allied units overseas, the company plans on setting up a manufacturing unit in Andhra Pradesh. This unit would specifically cater to the 2-wheeler segment and pick-up vehicles tyres for which, at present, are being manufactured by a 3rd party on Apollo’s behalf.

Apollo’s average sale of 2-wheeler tyres per month is close to 2,00,000, which, by the end of this year, could be close to 2,50,000 tyres per day, says Onkar S Kanwar, Chairman, Apollo Tyres.

It is believed that the facility would be set up at Chitoor district on the borders of Andhra Pradesh and Tamil Nadu.

Apollo Tyres has a manufacturing facility at Oragadam, near Chennai and is planning to invest Rs 2700 crore to expand truck-bus radial capacity to 12,000 from 6,000. It has already invested around Rs 2100 crore to make Chennai to cater to export markets.

Apollo says that improvement in mining, infrastructure, disposable income and 7th pay commission would add to the demand of tyres in coming years. Its Hungary plant would be operational by 2017 and would produce around 5.5 million passenger car tyres and 6,750,000 tyres for trucks and buses. The company already has an operating unit in Netherlands which creates close to 7 million tyres.
