Welcome to the second edition of what we simply call The Book.
The Book: Valuable tire industry resource
We consider this an anthology of the best that Tire Business has presented over the last 12 months — from our lists of North America's Largest Independent Retailers, to a look at our 2021 Tire Business Tire Dealer Humanitarian Medal winner, as well as profiles of some of the most successful women in the tire industry.
This issue is filled with pertinent, market-relevant data that help our readers gain a clearer insight of the industry, both for the past and in the future.
Inside you also will find our exclusive and popular Global Tire Report, which includes not only a ranking of the world's Top 75 tire makers in terms of 2020 sales — spoiler alert, Michelin was No. 1 for the second straight year — but also our comprehensive list of tire factories around the globe.
We also feature our top stories of the year, rated not only by our staff here at Tire Business, but also by our digital readers. Not surprisingly, one story topped each list: Goodyear's purchase of Cooper Tire & Rubber Co.
At 100 pages, this edition is our largest in history, eight pages meatier than our inaugural edition of The Book in 2020.
We are proud of the work we do here at Tire Business, keeping you on top of the latest news and data in the tire industry. We hope you enjoy this as much as we do in presenting this to you.
We look forward to serving you once again in 2022.
