Global market review of road wheels ' forecasts to 2013
Published on August 2007

                                                                                                            Report Summary

Since being rolled out by the Sumerians in around 3500 BC, the wheel has been constantly re-invented. Today, the main
development trends in the automotive wheels industry centre on producing larger, brighter and cheaper wheels.
OEM's also require styling flexibility, reduced weight and high quality from their wheel suppliers today, and although the North
American and European aluminium wheel market has grown over the past decade, the pace of growth has slowed recently, and
advances in the use of steel has meant that manufacturers of steel wheels can meet alloy wheel designs head on. According to the
American Iron and Steel Institute (AISI), steel wheels are making a comeback as vehicle makers realise that thanks to the
development of new high-strength steels and improved design and simulation technology, they can save up to US$200 per vehicle,
without making any sacrifice to quality or performance.



In this fourth edition of the road wheels report just-auto reviews the key market drivers for road wheels, and provides updated market
analysis.
We include market share data for steel wheels and cast aluminium wheels, plus we provide top level market fitment, volume and
value forecasts through to 2013.
The report also includes exclusive Q&As with senior executives from ArvinMeritor, Hayes Lemmerz and the AISI. We also provide a
review of recent innovations in this arena, plus brief profiles of the major manufacturers, namely Accuride, Alcoa, Amcast,
ArvinMeritor, Hayes Lemmerz, Superior Industries and Topy Industries.
