Rovereto (IT) – On March, 1st 2021 the Retreading Systems division of Marangoni will upwardly adjust the sales price for rubber materials used to retread tyres in all countries of the European Area. The magnitude of the increase will be at a level of 0,20 €/kg.
This increase reflects that of the raw materials used by this sector, whose rapid evolution is caused by the increasing demand at a global level as well as a reduction in available quantities.
The price increase of raw materials has already forced various manufacturers of new tyres and/or materials for retreading to declare price increases or program them for the coming weeks. Marangoni believes that these increases will not have a negative effect on the competitiveness of the retreading industry. Actually, the retreaded tyre, since it uses less raw materials compared to the new product, will benefit from this trend.
