In 2014, a restrictive tax duty was introduced in the USA, with regard to the import of car tyres from the People's Republic of China (PRC). As a result, the share of Chinese-manufactured car tyres on the American market has fallen from 13% to 6%. This decline, has, in turn, led to a drop in car tyre output in China, recorded initially as of 2008: the drop in USA imports was not offset by increased exports to other countries. At the same time, American manufacturers could only partly satisfy the newly-nascent market niche. Car tyre manufacturers elsewhere in Asia have taken advantage of the reduced presence of Chinese companies in the USA; this accounts for the relatively insignificant growth in USA car tyre output, against the increase in Asian exports. The restrictive tax duty may have an adverse impact on the position of American car tyre producers operating not only in the PRC, but also enhance competition worldwide, as Chinese companies could diversify their supplies to new markets.
