The global market for Tires is forecast to reach 2.6 billion units by 2024, driven by continuous developments in tire engineering particularly innovations surrounding tire tread technology. Macro factors driving growth in the market include healthy upswing in agrarian economies focused on mechanization and the resulting strong demand for agricultural vehicle tires; healthy recovery in the global construction industry, increased spending on construction vehicles and a parallel increase in demand for construction tires in the OEM market; strong demand for commercial vehicle tires at the back of growing investments in fleet expansion in the logistics industry; government focus on smart transportation, increased investment in BRT (Bus Rapid Transit) systems and the ensuing healthy demand for bus tires; and rising vehicle density and a commensurate expansion of addressable market opportunities for replacement tires in the aftermarket. Poised to score the highest gains in the market in the coming years will be premium and specialty tires with high speed, low rolling resistance, high insulation to reduce road noise, additional cushioning, and innovative tread grooves and patterns. Asia-Pacific represents the largest and the fastest growing market with a CAGR of 6.1% over the analysis period led by factors such as growing population, transportation needs and a parallel rise in vehicle PARC; robust growth of the logistics industry and the resulting expansion of transport vehicle fleet; growing per capita car ownership among the expanding base of middle class population; strong aftermarket opportunities fed by bad road conditions in emerging Asian economies and the increased risk of punctures; falling oil prices, increase in vehicle miles travelled and wear and tear of tires and robust replacement demand; continued trend towards radialization of commercial vehicle and passenger car tires in most emerging southeast Asian countries; growing stringency of safety regulations and consumer awareness over the fact that healthy tires equals safe rides and the resulting demand for smart new tires upgrades; growing importance proactive maintenance and replacements; and rise in environmental awareness and emerging demand for green tires.
