Market driver: increase in automobile sales

The automotive market is divided into passenger cars and commercial vehicles. Between these segments, the demand for the former is very high and is growing significantly in emerging countries, such as China, Brazil, and India. China is the world's second-largest automotive market. With the improvement in economic conditions, people are shifting toward small passenger cars from motorcycles. India also has a fast-growing automotive market, and manufacturers are trying to tap this market. Thus, the increasing demand for passenger cars and commercial vehicles will drive the automotive tires market during the forecast period.

Market trend: use of radio frequency tags in tires

Commercial truck tire manufacturers have started implanting radio frequency identification (RFID) tags into the automotive tires while manufacturing them because this technology provides benefits to both truck fleets and tire manufacturers. The manufacturer can track the manufacturing process of tire, inventory, shipping to the final point of sale and end-user; everything through a unique number that is provided by RFID.

According to Ganesh Subramaniam, a lead analyst at Technavio for wheels and tires research, "RFID tags, which are inserted in tires, help to identify and address problems, which lead to downtime, low mileage, high fuel consumption, and safety risks. With the RFID technology, the lifespan of the tire increases as the tire is regularly monitored and defects can be cleared immediately. Michelin added RFID tags in all its truck tires across the world."

Market challenge: replacement tire market is being impacted by re-treaded market

When a tire gets worn-out or damaged, it is generally replaced by an aftermarket new tire. However, the tire aftermarket is suffering because of the recent advancement in re-treading technology. Re-treading is the process of creating new treads to replace the damaged and worn-out old treads. Currently, more than 50% of the tires in the market are being re-treaded rather than being replaced with aftermarket new tires. This trend is being followed globally, and it is also going to intensify during the forecast period.
