Commenting on the report, an analyst from the team said: “The increasing demand for tires with longer life is one of the major trends witnessed in the All-season Tire market in Europe. All-season tires generally provide a longer life when compared to tires specifically used in other seasons, especially during winters. Winter tires are usually made with softer rubber, which tends to get worn out at a faster rate than all-season tires. As vehicle owners expect tires to have a long life-expectancy, there is a higher demand for all-season tires. Moreover, vehicle owners prefer all-season tires since they can save costs compared to other tires with a shorter life.”
According to the report, one of the major drivers in this market is the cost savings achieved with the usage of all-season tires. End-users across Europe prefer to use all-season tires rather than using different tires for different seasons. This helps vehicle owners to save costs since they do not have to change tires every season. This is in turn is promoting the usage of all-season tires, thereby boosting the growth of the All-season Tire market in Europe.
Further, the report states that one of the major challenges in this market is the lower performance of all-season tires compared to winter tires. Although all-season tires facilitate mobility on snowy roads, they are not the best option for vehicles during the winter season. This difference in performance between all-season tires and winter tires is due to the tread design, which is wider in winter tires and narrower in the case of all-season tires. This can have a negative impact on the growth of the market in the near term.
The study was conducted using an objective combination of primary and secondary information including inputs from key participants in the industry. The report contains a comprehensive market and vendor landscape in addition to a SWOT analysis of the key vendors.
