Global Truck-Bus Tires Market is Projected to Grow at a CAGR of 5.5% During the Forecast Period 2017-2027
Truck and bus tires are bands or rings of rubber, either hollow or solid and inflated or made of metal, placed over a rim of the wheel for providing resistance to wear, traction, and other such necessary properties. The market is anticipated to be driven by government investments in logistics and transportation and favorable trade agreements and entry of commercial vehicle manufacturers. Furthermore, rising technological advancements by market players are also anticipated to boost market growth.
However, fluctuation in raw material prices is expected to hinder market growth. Also, during the pandemic, the market was negatively hampered due to the closing of borders, lockdowns, and negligible movement of vehicles, which resulted in low demand for these tires.
Government investments in logistics and transportation
The government of various countries is investing heavily in the logistics and transportation sectors. This is because both these sectors are responsible for propelling the overall development of a country. For instance, according to the Department for Promotion of Industry and Internal Trade (DPIIT), the logistics sector of India is growing at a growth rate of 10.5% and was expected to reach USD 215 billion in 2020. Furthermore, the Indian government in its budget announced in March 2020, unveiled USD 23 billion investment in the logistics and transport infrastructure. All such investments are expected to boost market growth.
Entry of commercial vehicle manufacturers and favorable trade agreements
Various trade agreements between government as well as non-government organizations are expected to boost market growth. For instance, in November 2020, ESR India, a Warburg Pincus-backed logistics real estate firm entered into an agreement with the government of Maharashtra, India for investing about USD 578.88 million for setting up 11 logistics and industrial parks across Pune and Mumbai. The entry of commercial vehicle manufacturers in the truck-bus tires business is also expected to fuel the market growth.
