Top Players in the Global Tire Market

Top Players in the Global Tire Market

The global tire (tyre) market reached a volume of 2,321.3 Million Units in 2022. Tires are flexible, ring-shaped automotive components that surround the rim of the wheels. They provide traction between the road and the vehicle and transfer the load of the automobile to the surface. They also absorb road shocks, transmit accelerating and braking forces to the ground, and help maintain or change the direction. As a result, tires are widely used to enhance the driving experience and improve the overall vehicle performance.

As per the analysis by IMARC Group, the top companies in the tire industry are engaged in research and development (R&D) activities to introduce innovative tires with enhanced design and rubber quality. They are also making heavy investments in product innovations, such as the development of ecological, flat-run, and nitrogen-based tires that are environment-friendly and provide superior fuel efficiency and inflation pressure. In addition, several key players are launching biodegradable 3D printed smart concept tires which are made from sustainable materials and integrated with sensors to provide real-time updates about the tire condition. Along with this, the introduction of non-pneumatic tires (NPT) or airless tires that do not deflate under any circumstances is propelling the market growth. Looking forward, IMARC Group expects the market to reach 2,741.2 Million Units by 2028, growing at a CAGR of 2.88% during 2023-2028.
