GfK US Tire POS Panel

Over half of US replacement tire sales come from the independent tire specialist channel - but information on activity in these crucial outlets has been scarce.

To address this, GfK developed the first panel collecting point-of-sale (POS) data from independent tire dealers nationwide. Drawing from over 3,500 points of sale, GfK's panel allows manufacturers and retailers to understand for the first time:

  • Brand Share Changes
  • Competitive Activities
  • Sell Out Pricing at the Tire Level

With data from January 2016 to the current month, GfK's panel allows executives to benchmark their performance against the channel and bring a richer, fact-based perspective to decision making. 

Reaching key milestones

GfK POS data can help achieve key goals for tire sales:

Be in the right place at the right time – GfK helps you increase profitability and address non-productive inventory in the supply chain

Anticipate production needs – see which tires consumers are purchasing in the replacement market on a month-by-month basis, and understand the impact of new product launches and innovations

Maximize the value of promotion and ads – with channel-wide sales trends at your fingertips, including competitive data, you can see which consumer/trade tactics are working to drive efficient promotional/advertising strategies
