The global tire material market has been segmented by type, application, and region.
Based on the type, the global tire material market has been classified into elastomers, reinforcing fillers, plasticizers, chemicals, metal reinforcements and textile reinforcements. Elastomers, the tire rubber materials, occupying the major composition of the final product, accounted for the largest market share in 2018 and is expected to maintain its dominance during the forecast period. The segmental growth can be attributed to their superior physical, chemical and mechanical properties such as flexibility, abrasion and low hysteresis. Furthermore, reinforcing fillers are the fastest growing segment owing to its chief role of carbon black in improving abrasion, strength and performance of tires and thus is expected to exhibit a highest CAGR during the forecast period.
By application, the tire material market has been divided into light-weight commercial vehicle (LCVs), passenger car (PCs), heavy- weight commercial vehicle (HCVs). The passenger car segment accounted for the largest market share in 2018 owing to increasing population and rising per capita disposable income. Furthermore, light-weight commercial vehicle segment is expected to grow at a highest CAGR on account of several amenities such as reduced costs of transportation and door to door logistic services.
