Global specialty tires market: Development of airless tires
Automotive airless tires are non-pneumatic automotive tires made of rubber treads and filled with a compound of rubber and plastic. The tire consists of spokes that help distribute heat. However, the operational efficiency of these airless tires is highly limited. Hence, they can only be used in a limited range of vehicles like ATVs and certain heavy industrial and commercial vehicles.
“By 2020, airless racial tires for specialty vehicles such as off-highway commercial vehicles such as golf carts, construction vehicles, agricultural vehicles, and mainstream commercial vehicles is expected to gain traction. Automotive airless radial tires are still in its initial stage of development. Since 2016, the major tire manufacturers have been developing prototypes of airless tires for ATVs,” says a senior analyst at Technavio for research on wheels and tires.
