Radial-ply tires segment accounted for largest market share in 2022

The growth of the segment can be mainly attributed to its superior advantages and higher technical advancements in terms of light-weight and durability, enhanced traction, and fuel-efficiency with reduced carbon emissions.

The bias-ply tires segment is also likely to gain a significant growth rate over the coming years, which is highly attributable to its exceptional load capacity and various other beneficial features including high-speed, stability, and heat sensitive. Moreover, these types of tires are widely utilized in military aircrafts across the globe owing to its hard-casing properties, which is also fueling the segment market growth.

Commercial aviation segment is expected to grow fastest over the forecast period

The commercial aviation segment is expected to grow at highest CAGR during the forecast period, on account of increasing number of commercial aircraft deliveries across several countries because of the growing air passenger traffic worldwide. With the higher activities of commercial aircrafts, the chances of wear and tears of aircraft tires re very higher, thereby fueling the demand for aftermarket tires exponentially. In addition, many global airlines are implementing on making partnership with aircraft tire manufacturers to tackle the continuously growing tire replacement demand, which is likely to create new growth opportunities for the segment market.

For instance, a report published by Airbus, the company has received a total of 647 aircraft, with a significant change form the 133 aircrafts ordered in the same period of previous year. There were 437 aircrafts already delivered till September 2022, compared to 424 in first 9 months of 2021.

Fixed-wing segment is expected to hold significant market share

The fixed-wing segment is projected to lead the aircraft tires market with a healthy growth rate over the study period. The sudden increase in the international air travel and continuously growing air passenger traffic across both developed and developing nations are the major factors driving the segment market growth in the coming years.

Moreover, the growing awareness regarding the capabilities of fixed-wing aircrafts to conduct flight operations at very high altitudes and also long distances, without any need for the continuous or frequent refueling, which is very crucial and essential in conducting long-hauls aircraft operations, thereby fueling the demand and growth of the segment market.

OEM segment is expected to witness highest growth

The segment growth is mainly accelerated by an extensive rise in the demand for UAVs across various applications including city area monitoring, medicine delivery, parcel deliveries, and border surveillance, among others. In addition, the increase in the composite product penetration and high prevalence across the globe, to improve and enhance the airplane operation with the help of various innovative components design, is further likely to have a positive impact on the segment market growth.

North America region dominated the global market in 2022

The North America region dominated in 2022 and is expected to maintain its dominance throughout the anticipated period, that is mainly driven by exponentially growing spending on aerospace and aviation sector especially in countries like US and Canada, where governments are very focused and aware towards its passenger safety and convenient. With the robust presence of large global airlines and aircraft tires manufacturers in the region, who are highly implementing on development of alternative sources of natural rubber, that is likely to reduce their dependency on exports and will create lucrative growth opportunities for the market in the near future.

Asia Pacific region is expected to emerge fastest and likely to account for substantial market share over the forecast period. Major APAC countries like China, Japan, and India are witnessing a significant rise in the passenger traffic and also escalating the number of new aircraft orders along with the growing focus on making aircraft tires more durable and capable to withstand longer airplane takeoff, thus such developments will boost the regional market.
