In 2019, plastics material segment dominated around 65% of the airless tires market share. These materials are recyclable and are preferred by the manufacturers for airless tire production. Increasing usage of recyclable plastic for manufacturing two-wheelers tires with plastic spokes will boost the market growth. Moreover, consistently growing prices and reducing natural resources used for rubber production are the key factors responsible for lower penetration of rubber-based tires.

Increasing production of rubber tires by market players such as Sumitomo Rubber Industries will support the rubber material segment penetration. Ongoing investment towards puncture proof tires particularly from automotive industry participants including Toyota will fuel the product adoption. However, stringent government regulations focusing on reducing the sulfur usage will limit the industry expansion.

Commercial vehicles to gain significant traction during the forecast period

The commercial vehicle segment in the market will foresee strong gains through 2026 due to ongoing initiatives by industry players to introduce non-pneumatic ties for the vehicles. For instance, in January 2020, Bridgestone announced to launch the airless tires for commercial vehicles. These provide superior durability and lesser wear & tear as compared to conventional tires.

Increasing demand for puncture proof tires for vehicles engaged in heavy load carrying and rugged activities will support the market penetration. Moreover, shifting trends of tire manufacturers such as Goodyear & Michelin towards developing these tires for commercial vehicles further incentivizes product growth.

Strong product demand from military sector on account of movement of military vehicles in uneven off-road terrain requiring minimal maintenance and low requirement of tire replacement, will boost the airless tires market growth.

Industry players are constantly developing products for military applications particularly in developed regions including the U.S., Canada & Europe. Availability of the product on e-commerce portals for ATVs and commercial vehicles will further fuel the industry demand.

Shifting consumer preferences to escalate revenue generation from OEM

OEM’s accounted for over 90% market share in 2019 owing to increasing consumer inclination towards airless tires for superior performance in multiple terrains. Provision of safe driving conditions, enhanced durability and superior service with reduced maintenance are the key factors for the segment growth. The manufacturers are increasing the production of tires to normalize product cost and attract consumers.
