Low Rolling Resistance Tire Market Projected to Reach US$ 54 Billion by 2033

The global low rolling resistance tire market is estimated to attain a valuation of US$ 18.4 billion in 2023 and is expected to reach US$ 54 billion by 2033, expected to incline at a CAGR of 11.3% during the forecast period. The automotive sector’s rapid growth has resulted in a surge in the number of vehicles on the road, causing concerns over rising emission levels. As a result, governments are enforcing stringent emission control policies, driving market growth. Automotive companies are adopting innovative technologies to reduce emissions, further fuelling this trend.

Market players are actively incorporating nanomaterials in tire manufacturing to harness their potential in reducing rolling resistance and offering additional benefits, including improved wear resistance and enhanced safety levels. The growing demand for fuel-efficient vehicles is expected to drive market growth, as low rolling resistance tires require less energy from the vehicle’s engine to initiate movement. This not only improves vehicle performance but also contributes to increased sales.
