The key milestone in the history of tyres was the invention of the wheel by Sumerians 5000years ago and it has been refined over ages. Centuries back pieces of rubber placed at fourcorners of the vehicle were used as tyres. The earliest tyres were bands of iron (later steel)placed on wooden wheels, used on carts and wagons. The tire would be heated in a forge fire,placed over the wheel and quenched, causing the metal to contract and fit tightly on the wheel.But the whole scenario started changing when Charles Goodyear invented vulcanized rubber in1844 which was later used for the first tires. The first practical pneumatic tire was made by theScot, John Boyd Dunlop in 1887. Pneumatic tires are made of a flexible Elastomeric material,such as rubber, with reinforcing materials such as fabric and wire. Tire companies were firststarted in the early 20
century, and grew in tandem with the auto industry. Today over 1 billiontires are produced annually, in over 400 tire factories, with the three top tire makerscommanding a 60% global market share.
 Structure of the industry
