In addition, retreaded tires are environmentally friendly, which contributes to the overall expansion of the market, as consumers are more likely to show a preference for sustainable solutions. Subsequently, more and more manufacturers began to use retreaded tires in commercial and heavy vehicles. The expansion of the logistics industry and the rising demand for freight have created a favorable environment for the sales of retreaded tires. As a result of the increased wear and tear on tires, the demand for retread of tire has increased. Fleet operators are looking at opportunities to save costs while maintaining a sustainable and safe vehicle fleet.

Rising demand for retread tire in light commercial vehicle

Retreading of tires has always been a popular concept with heavy commercial vehicles, but with time the potential benefits of using it for light commercial vehicles have been noticed. In a light-duty car, the manufacture of a single tire consumes an average of 26 liters of oil, while retreading the same tire consumes only 9 liters of oil, which accounts for almost 34% of the new manufacturing process. On the other hand, according to the Retread Tire Association, for a large SUV, the cost of a new set of four tires is about $1,000. Almost 50% of the cost is saved by adopting retreading for light-duty vehicles. Various tire manufacturing companies are launching retread tire, for instance, Michelin launched two new pre-mold retreads to expand its lineup of tire retread technologies.  This retread offers fuel savings through its innovative compound tread for a lower total cost of ownership. Also, Goodyear tire & rubber company and cooper tire & rubber company stated that they have entered a definitive transaction agreement to increases scale to support investments in New Mobility and Fleet Solutions. Thus, retreading suppliers are now focusing on light-duty vehicle along with certain tire manufacturers entering into the retreading business, such as The Goodyear Tire & Rubber Company for light commercial vehicles. Thus rising demand for retread tire in light commercial vehicle will drive the demand for retread tire market.
