Domestic tyre stocks are having a party after the government imposed a counter-veiling duty on truck and bus radial tyre imports from China.

China is the major exporter and dumps the tyres into the Indian replacement market. Radial tyres constitute about 50 percent of the tyre demand and about 20-25 percent requirement is met through imports mainly through China. This will narrow the price differential between Chinese and domestic tyres and boost the domestic tyre demand.

Tyre stocks including Ceat and MRF jumped over 2 percent each while Apollo Tyres gained over a percent. Balkrishna Industries jumped 3 percent while JK Tyre and Industries spiked over 4 percent.
