Market Study

Tire Recycling

If you are contemplating a new tire recycling plant or would like to expand the reach of your existing products, Weibold can conduct an in-depth study of potential off-takers in your area as well as on international markets. Upon request the study can also include a survey of the feedstocks reasonably available at or near your location.

Tire Recycling Market Study

Purpose

The purpose of our Market Study is to provide the tire recycling plant operator with actionable information about potential off-takers for the plant’s recycling products.

The Market Study Module is designed for project initiators, investors or lenders, and operators of existing tire recycling plants.

Pre-requisites are either a Weibold Pre-Feasibility Study or a good definition and specifications for the products to be marketed, including product mix, volumes, capacities, sizes, pricing ranges, etc. This information must be provided to Weibold by the client and can include data on existing production and hypothetical products the operator wishes to produce in the future.

Your Benefits

Commissioning the Market Study will allow you to:

  • Make informed strategic decisions for investments in new technologies, products and marketing activities
  • Understand the reach and limits of a given or intended set of rubber products and thereby avoiding non-performing investments
  • Exploit a head-start in developing, testing, marketing and selling new recycled rubber materials and tire-derived products

Our Approach

To provide a meaningful market study Weibold needs to understand the Client’s products – existing or intended - in detail. We will therefore first gather all relevant information in a Kick-off Conference, which can be held electronically.

Weibold will then segment the market into sectors and draw on our resource database to define a list of potential customers for the defined rubber products as well as engage a team of researchers to identify new off-takers for your tire recycling business. Weibold will contact the potential customers to determine their buying capacities.

The Market Study will be delivered as a Report, complete with Executive Summary, Contact Lists, Strength and Weakness Analysis, and judgement on potential based on our 20-year experience in tire recycling.
