According to a new report titled, Automotive Tubeless Tire Market by Type, Vehicle Type, and Distribution Channel: Global Opportunity Alysis and Industry Forecast, 2017-2023, the automotive tubeless tire market was valued at $132 billion in 2016, and is projected to reach $198 billion by 2023, growing at a CAGR of 6.2% from 2017 to 2023. The passenger car segment is expected to maintain its domince throughout the forecast period. Asia-Pacific accounted for the highest share of 50% in 2016, and is anticipated to maintain this trend.
Tubeless tires operate without an inner tube, and the outer surface of tubeless tire makes an air tight sealing with metal rim, and air is held in the assembly of casing and rim. Growth in automotive industry in developing countries and stringent vehicular emission & fuel economy norms among different countries boosted the demand for automotive tubeless tires in the market. However, fluctuation in cost of raw material, such as steel & rubber and huge capital investment required to set up new manufacturing facility is restraining the market growth. Moreover, rise in average life span of vehicles, and advancement in technology are expected to create numerous opportunities for the market growth.
By type segment, the market is bifurcated into radial and bias tubeless tire. In 2016, radial tubeless tire accounted for the highest revenue, and is expected to maintain its domince throughout the forecast period. This is due to its advantage over bias tires, such as runs cooler, rigid construction, longer tread life, wider footprint, more traction between tire & road surface, and enhances ride quality. In addition, rise in application of radial tire in two wheelers, passenger cars and light commercial vehicles is driving the market growth.
By vehicle type segment, the market is divided into two wheelers, passenger cars, and commercial vehicles. In 2016, the passenger car segment accounted for about 56% of the overall automotive tubeless tire market, and is anticipated to maintain its domince throughout the forecast period. This is due to rise in number of passenger cars, and government rules & regulation regarding vehicular emission & fuel economy. As per the OICA Car Association, in 2016, approximately 69 million passenger cars were sold across the globe, which further boost the demand of tubeless tire in automotive industry. Moreover, two-wheeler segment is expected to expand at the highest CAGR of 7.9% during the forecast period, owing to rising number of two-wheeler in developing countries such as Chi, India, Singapore and Thailand.
By distribution channel segment, the market is segmented into origil equipment manufacturer (OEM) and aftermarket. Aftermarket segment accounted for the highest market share in 2016, and is anticipated to continue this trend. Rise in average life span of vehicles, due to the advancement in technology and launch of new advanced tubeless tires in market, is driving the aftermarket tubeless tire market. Moreover, origil equipment manufacturer (OEM) segment is expected to grow with lucrative growth rate as compared to aftermarket, due to rise in production of vehicles and increasing number of manufacturing facility of automotive OEM in developing region.
Geographically, the market is classified into North-America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, and LAMEA. Asia-Pacific accounted for majority of revenue in 2016, and is expected to maintain its domince, followed by North America and Europe. This is attributed to the rise in disposal income, which further boosts the number of vehicles and growth in aftermarket.
