Global Tire Market Trends:

Rapid Technological Advancements in Tire Manufacturing 

The increasing enhancements in tire fuel efficiency, longevity, and performance represent primary factors bolstering the tire market's recent opportunities. Apart from this, various key players across the globe are widely investing in R&D activities to launch novel tire variants. For example, Pirelli introduced a new all-season tire, called the P Zero AS Plus 3, designed for high-performance cars. Similarly, in June 2023, Michelin developed the Air X SkyLight tire for commercial aviation. The tire is lighter as compared to previous generations, with a weight reduction of 10-20% leading to over 15-20% long-term lifespan and performance. Moreover, in March 2023, Sumitomo Rubber Industries, Ltd. launched FALKEN "e. ZIEX," the replacement tires for electric vehicles. FALKEN aimed to offer optimal fuel efficiency. Apart from this, the emerging popularity of adopting sustainable materials in the manufacturing of tires is projected to propel the global market over the forecasted period. For instance, Continental is the first manufacturer to introduce tires with both maximum EU tire-label performance and sustainable materials in volume production. Furthermore, in May 2023, Kumho Petrochemical Co., Ltd. (KKPC) and Hankook Tire & Technology signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) to launch eco-friendly tires. They aim to adopt solution-polymerized styrene-butadiene rubber (Eco-SSBR) as an eco-friendly initiative.

Expansion in the Automotive Industry

According to the tire market overview, the rising production of commercial and passenger vehicles, owing to the growing expenditure capacities of individuals, is acting as a significant growth-inducing factor. For example, the sales of passenger vehicles in India improved after the third quarter of the year, reaching 3,10,294 units in October 2020 as compared to 2,71,737 units in the same month last year, which indicated a 14.19% growth. Similarly, major players in the Asia-Pacific region are introducing new tires to gain an advantage over their competitors. For instance, in March 2021, Apollo Tires developed the Apterra Cross tires for the compact SUV segment in India. Apterra Cross tires are an outcome of the company's R&D activities to understand the exact usage patterns of CSUV. Furthermore, automotive tire vendors that compete for original equipment fitments are enhancing the Corporate Average Fuel Economy (CAFE). In line with this, they are trying to achieve the federally mandated target of 54.5 miles per gallon by 2025.

Implementation of Regulatory Policies and Safety Standards

The rising need for minimizing carbon emissions levels and improving fuel efficiency is encouraging government bodies to implement stringent rules to enhance the development of sustainable production and address the elevating environmental concerns associated with tire disposal. This, in turn, is propelling the tire market’s recent price. For instance, the Ministry of Road Transport and Highways (MoRTH) in India announced the regulatory changes in June 2022. The amendment to India’s Central Motor Vehicles Rules covered wet grip, rolling resistance, and rolling sound emissions for C1 (passenger vehicle), C2 (light commercial vehicle), and C3 (truck and bus) tires. In addition to this, MoRTH also announced the central motor vehicle rules in June 2023. The amendments aim to enhance safety and implement environmental standards by regulating the performance and quality of tires for motor vehicles. Moreover, the European Union’s new proposed framework became the first worldwide standard to move beyond exhaust emissions. The Euro 7 rules set out additional limits for particulate emissions generated by brakes. The rising trend of green mobility, leading to stricter emissions standards by government bodies, is projected to fuel the global market over the forecasted period.

Growing Urbanization and Infrastructure Development

The elevating number of infrastructure development activities in developing economies, especially China and India, is catalyzing the sales of construction vehicles and commercial vehicles. The replacement and aftermarket tire market presents a huge opportunity for producers to generate revenue. Furthermore, individuals prefer high-performance tires over traditional rubber tires, as they are subjected to wear and tear. For example, the increasing demand for high-performance tires in Europe, owing to the wide presence of a large number of OEMs, including Ferrari, Daimler, BMW, Volkswagen, Renault, etc. These OEMs regularly participate in motorsports events to showcase their new line of innovative product variants that cater to the need for cleaner, cost-effective, and safer vehicles and components. For example, in March 2021, Bridgestone EMIA and Versalis, Eni's chemical company, signed a joint development agreement for the production, research, and supply of new elastomer grades, including styrene-butadiene rubber (SBR), and synthetic rubber in the manufacturing of high-performance tires.
