Aircraft Tire Retreading Market Trends



  • Rising adoption of aircraft tire retreading to boost the market growth


The market for aeroplane tyres is being driven by the increase in domestic and international air travellers. The demand for new aircraft is being driven by the rise in domestic and international air travellers. To meet this demand, new aircraft must be produced, which raises the requirement for aircraft tyres and adds to their frequent wear and tear from landing each tyre repeatedly. For instance, the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) projects that by the year 2040, there will be 10.5 billion passengers travelling by air worldwide.


Additionally, the size of India's domestic air passenger market is anticipated to quadruple from pre-pandemic levels by 2030, according to Boeing's commercial market estimate for the years 2020 to 2039. As a result, the market for aircraft tyres is driven by the increase in domestic and international air travellers. A crucial trend that is becoming more and more popular in the aircraft tyre industry is technological improvement. Manufacturers of aircraft tyres are concentrating on creating tyres with a longer lifespan, greater resistance, and improved efficiency. For instance, the US-based tyre manufacturer Goodyear Tire & Rubber Company introduced TPMS technology for the creation of aviation tug tyres in May 2021. By minimising any pressure loss or temperature change, this technique aids in lowering the number of incidents.


The Japanese tyre manufacturer Yokohama Rubber Co. Ltd. signed a share purchase agreement in March 2022 to pay $2 billion for all of the company's outstanding shares of Trelleborg Wheel Systems Holding AB. It is anticipated that the acquisition will give Yokohama a brand structure, a solid service network, and an expansion of its regional sales network in the OE tyre market. A maker of tyres and wheels for off-road vehicles, aeroplanes, and other specialised uses, Trelleborg Wheel Systems Holding AB is situated in Sweden. Therefore, such factors are anticipated to enhance the aircraft tire retreading market CAGR worldwide in recent years.


However, the growing safety and environmental stability along with the growing air travel are other factors driving the growth of the aircraft tire retreading market revenue.

The aircraft tire retreading market segmentation, based on process, includes first class, business class, premium economy class, and economy class. The pre-cure segment held the mainstream share in 2021 contributing to around ~48% in respect to the Aircraft Tire Retreading market revenue. Pre-cure is a tire retreading process where the tread of the worn-out tire is removed before a new tread with a new tread design is wrapped and spliced by making use of a bonding agent known as cushion gum. Thus, the process enables tire manufacturers to produce different sizes and treads at the same time. In the mold-cure tire process, the original tread is removed and raw rubber is wrapped around the tire. Pre-cure offers various benefits such as low investment costs and flexibility.


Aircraft Tire Retreading Aircraft Type Insights


The aircraft tire retreading market segmentation, based on aircraft type, includes commercial and military. In 2021, the commercial segment led the market due to factors like rising passenger volume and an increase in the production of aircraft. Due to rising military spending in developing economies, the military category is anticipated to have the highest CAGR throughout the study period. Besides, the low cost category witnessed the fastest growth in the aircraft tire retreading market growth.


Aircraft Tire Retreading Regional Insights


By Region, the study provides the market insights into North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific and Rest of the World. North America had a major share in the global market and is estimated to continue its dominance during the forecast period. This is due to the Increasing air traffic and the subsequent demand for new aircraft. The presence of prominent commercial and military aircraft manufacturers such as Boeing and Lockheed Martin Corporation in the US is propelling the growth of the regional market.


Further, the major countries studied in the market report are: The U.S, Canada, Germany, France, UK, Italy, Spain, China, Japan, India, Australia, South Korea, and Brazil.
