Summer is projected as the most lucrative segments
Rise in competition among tire manufacturers
Leading automotive manufacturers continue to invest in the developing countries due to low costs of labor that further decrease the production costs, which will help meet the increase in demand for vehicles. The tire industry has witnessed phenomenal growth in the last decade; also, the automotive sector is experiencing exponential growth due to a rise in the demand for automobiles and use of collaborative & consolidation manufacturing in tire business.
This in turn boosts the growth of the automotive tires business. For instance, The Hankook Tire has launched “Dynapro AT2” for on & off-road SUVs. These tires have post optimal performance in all road conditions as it is characterized by quietness and a comfortable ride on-road and a powerful drive on the off-road. Moreover, the leading tire manufacturing company-Bridgestone Corporation also launched BATTLECROSS E50 motorcycle tires for enduro competitions. These tires were launched in one front tire size and two rear tire sizes in the U.S. and Canada. Thus, such new strategies by tire manufacturing companies for the expansion of their business across the globe are witnessing strong competition to capture a larger market share. Also, this factor is responsible for swift changes in the tire market that makes it more dynamic. Therefore, there is a rise in competition among tire manufacturers, which fosters the growth of the market.

15 to 20 inch is projected as the most lucrative segments
Volatile prices of raw materials
Raw materials to manufacture tires include petroleum reinforcing materials such as nylon and polyester. Also, rubber (natural and synthetic) is the basic element required to manufacture tires, which witnesses high fluctuations in cost. The materials used to manufacture rubber tires are tread, jointless cap plies, steel-cord for belt plies, textile cord ply, Bead reinforcement, apex, and core. Also, it consists of synthetic rubber, natural rubber, steel wire, and carbon black along with the petrochemical reinforcing materials such as polyester, fabric, nylon, steel, and rayon. The pricing of these raw materials plays a vital role in deciding the overall price of the tire. Prices of these metals fluctuate occasionally due to global economic ups and downs in the market, as these are traded on a community exchange basis.
Inflation and increase in the demand for these raw materials have fueled their prices in the recent past. In addition, players that operate in the automotive tire market require a large amount of raw materials to overcome the demand for tires from the automotive industry. Uncertainty in the pricing of these raw materials prove to be a major restraint for the growth of the rubber tire market.
By Vehicle Type
Electric vehicles is projected as the most lucrative segments
Fuel efficiency and safety concerns
To increase safety concerns, governments are coming up with stringent tire performance regulations including fuel saving and wet grip-related braking distance reduction. Thus, creating ample growth opportunities for the tire manufacturing companies to launch tires that can address the government regulations. Therefore, with increase in technological advancements, vendors are coming up with high efficient tires that increase the overall fuel efficiency of vehicles. Kumho Tire Co., Inc. launched pneumatic tires “Ecsta PA31” that can offer high performance in vehicles such as sport sedans and coupes. In addition, in past years, driving ATVs and UTVs on roads was not allowed for safety purposes but new bills and ordinances are now being passed across the globe to support the driving of these vehicles on roads. For instance, Sauk County Board in the U.S. has repealed the ATV and UTV vehicle ordinance that was adopted in 2013, updating it with a new version. Thus, supporting government regulations for such vehicles is a vital factor, which is expected to create numerous opportunities for the key players operating in Brazil of the automotive tire market.
