The province’s exports to ASEAN, Nigeria, and Mexico were 1.71 million, 1.18 million, and 1.02 million tires, respectively, up 73.9%, 13.5%, and 7.3%.

Shandong’s exports to the five destinations accounted for 47.75 of its total tire exports.

Shandong exported 10.04 million passenger car tires in Nov., down 5% year on year, standing at 50.8% of its total tire exports.

During the reporting period, it exported truck and bus tires of 4.69 million, down 4.3%; but the export of motorcycle tires rose 19.7% to 2.37 million.

The province exported 12.97 million tires in terms of processing trade in Nov., down 11.2%, accounting for 65.6% of the province’s total tire exports. It exported 6.56 million tires in terms of general trade, up 40.5%, accounting for 33.2%.

Foreign-invested firms exported 3.20 million tires, up 14.9%; and state-owned enterprises exported 1.7 million tires, down 8.8%.

Frequent trade friction and higher prices have sharply weakened Chinese tires’ international competitiveness.

Due to EU’s anti-dumping probe against Chinese tires, Shandong’s export there started to drop.
