The major competitors of GoodYear

Let's now discover the GoodYear Group's sectorial environment with a presentation of the main competitors of this company in its sector of activity and throughout the world.


First of all, we will of course follow the Michelin group which is one of the world leaders in the manufacture of tires. This French company based in Clermont Ferrand in the Puy de Dôme offers products for all types of vehicles including cars, trucks, two-wheelers, aircraft, civil engineering and agricultural machinery. It is a multinational company listed on the CAC 40 and is established in 17 countries. It employs 11,700 people.


The Bridgestone Corporation is another serious competitor to GoodYear. It is a Japanese tire manufacturer established in 1931 and is one of the largest tire groups in the world and the leader in terms of sales, just ahead of Michelin.


Of course, we will also have to keep an eye on the Pirelli & C group, which is an Italian group also specializing in the manufacture of tires and a subsidiary of the ChemChina group. The company is the fifth largest producer of tires in the world through its subsidiary Pirelly Tire which it is the sole shareholder.

Continental AG 

Finally, the last serious competitor of GoodYear is probably the Continental AG group which was founded in 1871 and is a German automotive supplier based in Hanover. Although it is mainly known for its tires, this group also offers other automotive parts as well as rubber recycling activities with its subsidiary ContiTech.

The major partners of GoodYear

After having discovered the main adversaries of the GoodYear group, we propose you to discover more in details some of its allies. Indeed, the group regularly sets up strategic alliances with other companies in order to increase its turnover and here are two recent examples:

Brabham Automotive

The first partnership we're going to talk about is the one that the GoodYear Group has with Brabham Automotive regarding the development of racing and road cars. The two companies have been partners since 1965 and this has been of great benefit to both companies. This time, the new collaboration concerns more precisely the tyre equipment of the BT62 road car as well as a specific model for motor racing. GoodYear Racing tires will be used on the race car, while Goodyear Eagle F1 Supersport tires have been selected for the road model. It should also be noted that these tyres have been tested by Brabham Automotive in the November 2019 competition at Brands Hatch and at the Britcar round.


Another important partnership was signed more recently in 2020 with the startup Tesloop, which was created in 2015 and is based in California. The latter is specialized in a shared transport service for people with a fleet that is entirely composed of electric cars of the Tesla brand. The main objective of this new partnership is to equip these vehicles with tires equipped with wireless sensors in order to conduct a study on the impact of integrated technologies on tires. This collaboration thus began in 2017 and is based on the success of GoodYear Proactive Solutions, which is a solution that enables real-time management of transport fleet tires. Goodyear's expertise is thus expected to help Tesloop's business to be more safe and efficient. In addition, this partnership represents a real springboard for GoodYear as it aims to quickly extend this type of solution to private vehicles. GoodYear is currently working in parallel with several other car manufacturers to improve the safety and performance of tires.
