Rising sales of electric vehicles (EVs) and a shift towards sustainable automotive solutions would create new growth opportunities for manufacturers in airless tire market. Airless tires are steadily gaining grip in the automotive sector, especially at a time when a myriad of automakers are adopting sustainable solutions to lower their carbon footprint. Made using bio-sourced and recycled materials, these tires can help minimize the overall environmental footprint of the tire sector.

Efforts to improve the driving range of EVs and accept more viable & lightweight materials would incite product demand in the coming years. According to an estimate from the U.S. Department of Energy, about 25% of the energy of EVs is used to overcome rolling resistance, making airless tires a critical component for maximum EV energy efficiency.

The high cost of manufacturing airless tires could impact airless tires market expansion. The use of advanced equipment, infrastructure, and raw material can increase the overall cost of manufacturing airless tires. Another major constraint is its manufacturing complexity which could impact production time and cost. However, strategic partnerships and mergers between tire manufacturers over developing new airless tires using sustainable materials could help overcome some of these challenges during 2023-2032.

Recyclability feature of plastic airless tires could boost product demand    

The industry size from the plastic material segment is predicted to record witness 11% growth from 2023 to 2032. Automakers are using lightweight components to improve vehicle fuel efficiency. Airless tires can help achieve this as they are often filled with compressed polymers like plastic that make them lightweight. New initiatives by automakers and tire companies to endorse the use of recyclable material would compel market growth.
