The increasing average vehicle age, annual miles driven by light-duty vehicles, improved infrastructure and increased tires replacement miles is driving the growth of tires aftermarket. The tires replacement market is projected to grow at a CAGR of 1.8% to reach a market size of USD 113.1 billion by 2025 from 101.7 billion in 2019.
The fundamental strategy adopted by major players to gain traction in the market is supply contracts/partnerships. In July 2018, Bridgestone together with ZMP Inc. launched a development project aimed at utilizing automated driving in tire noise tests. This project entails outsourcing the development of an automated driving system that incorporates Bridgestones tire test expertise to ZMP, the company that creates products and services based on its advanced robotics technologies. The companies have already succeeded in using automotive driving of manned vehicles at a Bridgestone’s proving ground, and are working to achieve SAE-Level 4 automated driving of unmanned vehicles for practical application in tire noise tests. The second most widely followed strategy is new product development. The Goodyear Tire & Rubber Company collaborated with an innovative mobility company, Priva, to provide tire monitoring capabilities that allow fleets to operate more efficiently. Priva is a Michigan-based startup that offers mobile offices for workers on the go. Goodyear has equipped Priva’s fleet of vehicles with intelligent tires, which contain sensors to capture tire data. The sensors allow Goodyear to gather data on the tires’ current state and work with Priva to predict future tire maintenance needs, reducing vehicle downtime and enhancing operational efficiency. Other companies that adopted this strategy include Continental AG (Germany), Michelin (France) and Sumitomo Rubber Industries (Japan).
