tire cord & tire fabrics market overview

Tire cord or fabrics are used as a coating mixture that works as a skeleton material that makes the tire suitable for the rubber used in the tire, allowing it to maintain the shape of the tire and support the weight of the vehicle. These tire materials can resist high pressure, impact load, and strong vibration. Growing demand for premium and speed vehicles will stimulate market growth over the coming years.

Innovation will remain a key factor defining the progress of tire cord and tire fabrics market. Surging demand for innovative tires that provide stability and fatigue & heat resistance will accelerate product adoption over the review timeline. Companies operating in the industry are focusing on product development and lucrative expansion strategies and are bolstering their production capacity to maintain a strong business standing.

Fluctuating raw material costs may restrain industry progression

Changing prices of fabric materials used in tires is a major factor restraining market growth. Raw material prices in the manufacturing process of these tire skeletons vary with demand and supply chain scenarios. The dynamic nature of trends and the supply of materials hamper the availability of these materials. Nonetheless, continuous advancement in the field to address raw material limitations will encourage market players to eventually reduce prices.
