Pakistan’s first & the largest tyre manufacturing Company The General Tyre & Rubber Company of Pakistan Limited participated in Single Country Exhibition held at Colombo Sri Lanka from Jan 13-15 organized by TDAP.
The purpose of participating in this event was to introduce GTR products and export them to Sri Lankan market. The response was tremendous as lot of potential parties visited the stall and showed their interest in the products especially in tractor tyres & rickshaw tyres. The climate/ road conditions are very similar to Pakistan conditions. It has a big market for two and three wheelers.
CEAT Kelani, DSI and Global Rubber Industries (GRI) were few of the major domestic tyre manufacturing companies, while MRF, Apollo, Goodyear and Bridgestone are the major global tyre companies operating in Sri Lanka. At present the total tyre market of Sri Lanka is worth US$ 488 million. Keeping in view the export potential, the Company is already in touch with the parties and hopefully it will be materialized soon.
