- Tire market was infected by the currency turbulence and America’s
sanctions in last year and passed different challenges. Drivers
confronted with high prices and some of them stocked tires for the
In any word, shortage in the market and high prices, were the main problems of the transportation in last year.
"In the past month supply of tire has been
decreased from the factories and this inappropriate distribution has caused the
price increment.” Davoud Saadati Nejad, manager of tire dealers association told
"With this situation smuggled tire will be more in the
market and if a good has more request than supply then its price will increase.”
"Tire is like the car which is more expensive in the market than
factory. If anyone wants to buy a cheaper tire then they should buy it from the
factory.” Mostafa Tanha said.
"Reduced supply is sometimes due to the fact that the
currency is not provided or provided in a timely manner, but not transmitted.
In the context of the economic turmoil, financial exchanges between us and
abroad are not taking place, so provision of materials is subject to
fluctuations that also fluctuate production.” He added.
"Some of the factories supplying the raw materials needed
since they know that we have no choice but to cooperate with them and are
exclusive, this monopoly has exploited them.” He mentioned.
"Tire manufacturers problem is that our price is under
control and consumption right organization is supervising it but there is no
supervision in the supply chain. As a result, those who supply our raw material
are open to selling at any cost to us. On the other hand, the rate of tariffs
on domestic production is high, currency supply is difficult and at a high price;
this set of factors makes domestic producers of raw materials virtually
equivalent to the price of foreign currency to the rial and sell it in free
exchange.” He said.
due to the regulatory vacuum in the market, the price of tires and heavy
equipment, including motor oil, is increasing day by day. What is clear is that
the shortage and decrease in the distribution of government-owned tires on the
market has created a black market and the sale of tires has multiplied by
price, in the current situation, tires are available at free prices through
smuggling or domestic plants, hence organizing this section is also vital.”
