Looking back at 2022, Prinx Chengshan focused on strategy and seized opportunities.

The construction of smart factories and the production capacity layout at home and abroad have laid a solid foundation for future development.
During the Reporting Period, Prinx Chengshan actively explored the market and optimised the channel layout. Based on deep insight into consumers, Prinx Chengshan has formulated the brand strategy of “Multi-brand, Differentiated Development with Integration of Internationalization and Localization”. Its four major brands: Chengshan (Chengshan), Prinx (Prinx), Austone and Fortune completed system revamp.

Looking forward to 2023, with the global economic downturn and inflation, market demand will remain weak, while the war in Russia will continue to affect the global supply chain system. Since the lifting of domestic epidemic prevention and control policies in December 2022, it is expected that the Chinese economy will rebound rapidly in 2023, showing a trend of recovery. The suppressive factors of the tire market have been improved, and the domestic King Wan is expected to resume growth under the epidemic recovery, and the All Steel Radial Tire market is expected to recover; Overseas orders for Semi-Steel Radial Tires have gradually recovered since the fourth quarter of 2022, and the domestic replacement market is expected to pick up with the increase in residents’ outbound activities.
