The Automotive tires market is expected to grow in the near future owing to the increasing demand and production of automobiles.The increase in research and technological developments so as to provide high-quality tires to increase the fuel-efficiency of automobiles, the increasing standard of living, growing passenger cars segment, the decrease in rubber pricesare contributing to the growth of market. The decline in exports, the government regulations like taxation on foreign tires and fluctuations in the availability of raw materials and their prices pose some challenge to the growth of the market. One of the major drivers of the growth of this market is the increasing demand of eco-friendly tires. The eco-friendly tires are a means to make the automobiles fuel-efficient as these tires have less rolling resistance and hence lead to less fuel consumption.
The end-users of automotive tires are the automotive vehicle end-users i.e. OEM and aftermarket. OEMs are the Original Equipment manufacturers who manufacture the tires to match the tire specifications of a particular car’s make and model. Whereas the aftermarkets are the third party manufacturers who manufacture the tires in high volume to fit the tire specifications of more than a one vehicle, and not just one car’s make and model.
The technology which is showing boom in the automotive tires market is the use of passive RFID tags in tires. The passive tags are used as they do not require any battery. Commercial truck tire manufacturers have started implanting radio frequency identification i.e. RFID tags in the tires while manufacturing them. This technology is beneficial to both the manufacturer as well as the truck fleets to track the tire performance. The RFID tag contains a microchip and an antenna. The microchip is used to store and process information and the antenna is used to transmit and receive signals. The RFID tag is surrounded by a transmitter, a receiver and a reader. Also. Bio-oils are now being used in tires to provide ecological tires for fuel-efficient driving experience.
The Automotive tires market has presence of well-established international, regional and local players. The large and medium vendors compete intensely for market share. The increasing demand for automobiles and increasing standard of living of the people in emerging economies is also attributing to the growth of this market, specially the passenger car segment. The opportunities of technological advances like use of bio-fuels to develop eco-friendly tires and RFID tags in the tires also drive the competitive advantage in this market.
The market is segmented mainly in terms of the application (vehicle type), geography and end-users.
By application, the market is segmented into:
• Passenger cars
• Light Commercial Vehicles (LCVs)
