In recent years, the technologies in automotive tires, from pneumatic tires to airless tires, have undergone significant changes. The rising wave of new technologies such as radial and bias tire manufacturing technologies is creating enormous potential for automotive tires in various vehicle platforms in the purview of transportation, flexible sidewalls, and reduced fuel consumption due to less rolling resistance.
Increasing vehicle production and sales, growth in per capita vehicle ownership, higher demand for low rolling resistance tires, adoption of advanced tire manufacturing technologies, and increasing need to improve road safety are opening new doors for various automotive tire technologies. Due to these opportunities, the global tire industry, as measured by tonnage of production, is estimated to grow up to 22.75 million tons by 2024 compared to 19.25 million tons in 2019. Other than these factors, the growth of the global rubber and tire industry is being shaped by a variety of economic, regulatory, demographic, and consumer trends at the global, regional, and national levels, including alternative powertrains and autonomous vehicles, improvement in materials, and changing requirements in fuel efficiency with reduced emissions.
