What are the Factors Promoting Automotive Tire Market Growth?

  • Burgeoning demand for replacement tires is estimated to uphold automotive tire market growth. Vehicle owners especially car owners are seeking to replace conventional tires with high-performance tires offering better durability, safety, and ride comfort. Additionally, the rise of the pervasive trend of experiential traveling is bolstering the demand for tires for off-roading activities.
  • Rising environmental concerns coupled with extended governmental support for eco-friendly and sustainable manufacturing is influencing the tire production. Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEM) are funneling investments into research and development of sustainable materials and production procedures.
  • Industry 4.0 or the integration of IoT, data analytics, and other forms of automation is helping automotive tire manufacturers to streamline their production processes while strengthening their distribution network. Development of technologies such as 3D printing and additive manufacturing is aiding manufacturers in boosting tire production at lower costs.
  • A gradual surge in the demand for electric vehicles around the world is likely to create lucrative opportunities in the automotive tire market. Growing consumer awareness about the environment coupled with an increase in oil and gas prices is expected to drive the demand for electric vehicles around the world which, in turn, is estimated to contribute significantly to automotive tire market growth.
  • A gradual shift in the consumer preference towards vehicles offering high-performance is likely to continue complementing innovations in the automotive tire market. Manufacturers are working towards enhancing the efficiency, chip and wear resistance, durability while reducing the weight of tires to gain a competitive edge in the automotive tire market.

What are the Challenges Stifling the Automotive Tire Market Growth?

  • Although tire manufacturing companies are continuously investing in developing sustainable materials, the volume of waste produced due to tires currently is mounting. Stringent government guidelines involving tire manufacturing companies for investing in research and development of effective and sustainable waste management solutions are anticipated to incur additional costs for manufacturers.
  • Volatility in raw material pricing is expected to continue to dampen automotive tire market growth. Surging prices of butadiene and EPDM rubber due to a limited production is expected to cause a trickle-down effect in the automotive tire market. The increasing prices of tires are expected to adversely impact the profit margins of manufacturers.

Robust Demand for Radial Tires to Prevail as LCV Sales Burgeon

The multi-layer structure of radial tires consisting of steel chords and steel cable beading impart great strength and durability to the tires which are vital reasons driving the demand for the tires in all vehicle segments.

Additionally, the tread of radial tires enable better gripping of surface and substantially reduces rolling resistance which, in turn, provides better safety and contributes substantially to greater fuel efficiency.

The assortment of benefits offered by radial tires is being leveraged in the lightweight commercial vehicle (LCV) segment.

A significant rise in vehicle rental and sharing services is a key factor propelling LCV sales around the world. Substantial growth in LCV fleets around the world is likely to underpin the growing demand for radial tires.

Overall the demand for both radial and bias tires is estimated to rise as sales of passenger cars (PC), two-wheelers, medium and heavy commercial vehicles (M&HCV), OTRs and three-wheelers continue to remain steady.
