After Europe and West Asia, Apollo Tyres is expanding its market reach in Asean Association for South East Asian Nations. The Rs 12,000-crore group will open its outfit in Bangkok on May 2 to spearhead sales in the free trade region.

The trade block includes Brunei, Cambodia, Indonesia, Laos, Malaysia, Myanmar, Philippines, Singapore, Thailand and Vietnam.The company is already exporting tyres from India to Indonesia, Thailand and Philippines. However, due to their voluminous nature, exports are not considered a viable option for tyre sector to gain market share overseas. So Apollo is nurturing a plan to set up manufacturing base in the region.

“We have hired a team of 20 under the Bangkok-based subsidiary. We may follow it up with a manufacturing base in the region after two years depending on viability,” Satish Sharma, Chief, India operations, told Business Line.

While the subsidiary will primarily explore market opportunities in the auto-hub in Thailand, Apollo is also bullish on demand for cross ply BIAS truck tyres, especially off-the-road tyres OTR, used in Indonesia’s booming coal mining industry.“
