Type: Increasing adoption of tubeless tires for safety features

Tubed tires are a conventional type of automotive tire that require an inner tube to hold the air pressure that inflates to support the vehicle's weight and allow proper tire functionality. Tubed tires are often used in applications where the tires are subject to heavy-duty use in commercial vehicles along with bicycles, motorcycles, and off-road vehicles. Tubeless tires represent a more modern advancement in tire technology and are widely used across the automotive industry, particularly in passenger vehicles. Tubeless tires eliminate the requirement for an inner tube by relying on an airtight seal between the tire and the rim of the wheel and reduce the risk of a tire blowout.

Rim Size: Significance of automotive tires based on rim size

Tires with rim sizes ranging from 12 to 17 inches are commonly found on standard passenger vehicles, including subcompacts, compacts, and some mid-size cars. Typically, tires in the 12'' to 17'' size range offer a broad selection of tread patterns designed for various weather conditions and driving expectations. The 18 to 21 inch rim size range caters largely to sports sedans, performance vehicles, and lighter SUVs and crossovers. The consumer base for 18- to 21-inch rim-size tires often demands an optimal mix of performance, including improved handling, lower road noise, and higher speed ratings, without significantly compromising comfort. Tires for rims above 22 inches cater to a lucrative segment of the automotive market that includes luxury SUVs, high-performance cars, and custom vehicles.

Material: Improved preference of synthetic rubbers for tire manufacturing

Natural rubber is a crucial material in the tire industry and is derived from the latex found in the bark of rubber trees. Natural rubber is preferred for unique properties that make it ideal for use in automotive tires, such as high tensile strength, excellent abrasion resistance, and the ability to undergo strain crystallization. Synthetic rubber refers to artificial elastomers produced through the polymerization of monomers into long, chain-like molecules. Synthetic rubber is preferred over natural rubber for tire manufacturing due to thermal stability, resistance to aging, and specific mechanical properties.

Distribution Channel: Provision of tailor-made tires for specific vehicle models by OEMs

The aftermarket for automotive tires refers to the secondary market where consumers purchase tires after the vehicle's initial sale, including replacement tires purchased due to wear and tear, seasonal tire changes, or upgrades for improved performance. Aftermarket tires are chosen based on need, often influenced by price, brand preference, specific tire features, vehicle compatibility, and consumer reviews. Original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) channels include tires supplied directly to vehicle manufacturers and fitted to vehicles before being sold to the customer. This segment operates based on long-term contracts between tire manufacturers and automotive companies. The quality, performance specifications, durability, and strategic relationship between tire manufacturers and automakers typically guide the choice of OEM tires. Tires in this segment must meet stringent requirements set by the automakers and often involve co-branding. The aftermarket is driven by consumer choice and the replacement cycle, offering a broad range of products catering to diverse consumer needs and budgets. Various suppliers and brands in the aftermarket provide consumers with flexibility and competitive pricing.

Vehicle Type: Introduction of tire technologies with improved comfort and efficiency for passenger vehicles

Heavy light commercial vehicles typically include larger vans, minibusses, and small trucks, serving diverse purposes such as freight transport, logistics, and passenger conveyance over long distances. Tires designed for this segment prioritize durability, load-carrying capacity, and fuel efficiency to withstand long hours of operation and variable road conditions. Consequently, manufacturers often develop tires with reinforced sidewalls, deeper treads, and specialized rubber compounds tailored to these needs. Light commercial vehicles, such as smaller vans and pickup trucks, are designed for urban navigation and shorter-distance goods transportation. This subcategory demands tires that provide strength, load-bearing abilities, flexibility in maneuverability, and comfort to accommodate frequent stopping and starting in city environments. The tires for LCVs need to balance wear resistance with comfortable ride characteristics. HLCVs require robust, high-endurance tires that can handle significant loads and provide long service life even under harsh driving conditions. LCV tires, while also needing to be sturdy, prioritize balancing performance and comfort to navigate variable urban settings. Passenger vehicles encompass cars, SUVs, and crossovers used predominantly for personal transportation. Tires in this category focus on providing a comfortable ride, low noise level, and superior handling properties for everyday driving situations. They also vary widely, including economy tires, performance tires, and all-season varieties according to consumer preferences.
