Market Summary: The global market for Tire Cord and Tire Fabric was valued at USD 4.72 Billion in 2022 and is projected to reach USD 6.63 Billion by 2032, exhibiting a robust compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 4.5% during the forecast period. This growth is primarily driven by the increasing production of automobiles and the rising demand for fuel-efficient tires. Tire cord and fabric are essential components that enhance the performance and durability of tires, ensuring their shape retention and load-bearing capabilities.

Furthermore, the expansion of the automotive industry worldwide, coupled with a surge in the demand for passenger and commercial vehicles, is a key driver for market growth. Tire materials in this category demonstrate exceptional resistance to high pressure, impact loads, and vibrations.

The market is also benefiting from increased construction activities and infrastructure development on a global scale, which boosts the demand for off-road tires made from tire cord and fabric. Moreover, a growing focus on sustainability and environmental friendliness is fueling market growth, as manufacturers adopt eco-friendly materials and sustainable production practices.

However, potential challenges include the availability of substitute materials and the volatility of raw material costs. Fluctuations in the prices of key materials like nylon and polyester can impact production costs. Additionally, the availability of substitutes, such as steel, poses a constraint on market growth.

Key Insights:

Material Type: The Tire Cord and Tire Fabric Market consists of various material types, including Nylon, Polyester, Rayon, Aramid, and Others. Each material type offers unique characteristics and advantages.

  • Nylon, known for its heat resistance and tensile strength, is favored for radial tires, especially in the automotive industry.
  • Polyester, with exceptional UV resistance and durability, is in demand for high-performance tires.
  • Rayon, a natural fiber, is preferred for bias ply tires due to its elongation and adherence to rubber.
  • Aramid, a synthetic material, is recognized for its strength, heat resistance, and dimensional stability, ideal for high-performance tires.
  • Other materials like steel, carbon fiber, and fiberglass find use in specialized applications like heavy-duty tires for mining and construction machinery.

Fabric Type: The Tire Cord and Tire Fabric Market includes two main fabric types, Bias Tyre Fabric and Radial Tyre Fabric, each catering to distinct applications.

  • Bias tire fabric, with cords at alternating angles, offers stability, strength, heat resistance, and puncture resistance, making it suitable for heavy-duty tires.
  • Radial tire fabric, featuring cords at a 90-degree angle, provides flexibility, shock absorption, and fuel efficiency, making it ideal for passenger vehicles and light-duty applications.

Regional Outlook: In 2022, the Asia Pacific region led the global market due to its expanding automotive sector and high-performance tire demand. Key producers, including China, India, and Japan, are driving the need for tire cord and fabric.

North America is expected to experience substantial growth, driven by an increasing awareness of eco-friendly tires and the demand for high-performance tire cord fabric, particularly in the United States.

Europe’s market will grow at a moderate rate, with a focus on high-performance and environmentally friendly tires, as well as the adoption of hybrid and electric vehicles.

Competitive Landscape: The Tire Cord and Tire Fabric Market is highly consolidated, with major players such as Bekaert, Kolon Industries Inc., Kordsa Global, Shandong Xiangyu, and others dominating the market. These companies are expanding their market presence and introducing innovative products to meet the growing demand for tire cord and fabric.
