Regaining Momentum after Decelerated Sales in 2020
During the historic period, the tubeless tires market portrayed an impressive growth rate of 5% in terms of value. Growth in demand during 2015-2019 can be assessed by ascending sales for two wheelers across all high-potential markets.
Despite impressive historical growth, momentum decelerated in 2020. Demand for tubeless tires declined by nearly 5.4% over the 2nd quarter and 3.4% over the 3rd quarter of FY2020.
This decline in demand was due to the effect of lockdown impositions and disrupted supply chains. Furthermore, demand from OEM and aftersales services were halted, backed by lack of demand from end-use consumers.
However, the market for tubeless tires is expected to gain traction over the forecast period, as sales figures of automotive companies are surging with record levels of demand.
Furthermore, the shifting focus towards electric vehicles is also seen as key forecast factor for the growth of the tubeless tires market over the next ten years.
How will Electric Vehicle Sales Impact Demand for Tubeless Tires?
During the forecast period, electric vehicles and hybrid cars with low emissions are seen amongst the disruptive technologies that are expected to drive transformation in the mobility industry.
Electric vehicles come with numerous advantages as compared to conventional ones, such as lower emissions, maintenance cost, running cost, and engine noise.
Moreover, governments in developing countries are encouraging both, manufacturers and customers, by providing various incentive schemes for these vehicles.
Aforementioned factors will facilitate numerous growth opportunities for tubeless tire manufacturers over the years ahead.
With mounting sales of passenger cars and light commercial vehicles (LCVs), demand from OEMs is expected to experience a growth rate of more than 5% through 2030.
An Adaptive Approach to Modern-day Research Needs
What is the Potential Demand for Radial Tubeless Tires?
Radial tires are more than 80% resistant to wear & tear and facilitate higher grip on rough terrains. This feature is due to the fact that radial tires are constructed in two parts.
One layer of rubber coated steel for casing and then followed by several rubber-coated steel pipes, which together make up the steel belt.
Growing number of infrastructure projects and inclination of regional policies towards safety standards associated with heavy equipment are expected to drive demand for radial tubeless tires.
Dave Wright, manager- global OTR product support, Goodyear Tire & Rubber Co., states, “The larger the equipment, the higher the percentage of radials”.
Fact.MR forecasts the radial segment to grow from US$ 8 Bn in 2020 to US$ 15 Bn in 2030. This represents a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 7% over the next ten years.
How Will Meeting Emission Guideline Gain Prominence?
Fuel emission regulations are becoming stricter even in emerging markets, forcing OEMs to invest in engines that emit less pollutants, while maintaining efficiency.
Considering the fact that the market is years away from the dominance of electric vehicles, much of the innovation will be witnessed in traditional ICEs. OEMs are scampering to have everything in place before new guidelines come into play, and, as such, a flurry of activities can be expected in the near future.
Impact of tighter regulations will be apparent on manufacturers all over. In addition to taking incremental steps in the electric vehicle segment, manufacturers will primarily focus on improving the efficiency of ICEs.
R&D and investments in cylinder deactivation, variable valve timing, and life will remain the focus areas for automakers. Tightening of regulations will continue to exert pressure on automakers.
Will China Continue Influencing Market Structure and Product Pricing?
The world’s preeminent automotive market will continue to influence global prospects. The market in China remains highly fragmented, with thousands of small players vying for a shrinking pie.
