The 13”-15” rim size segment is the largest segment in the tires replacement market, in terms of value. This rim size is usually used in passenger cars with GVWR <3.0 tons. Passenger cars, which fall in the hatchbacks and compact sedan segment, are equipped with these rim sized tires. For instance, models such as Hyundai Avante, Volkswagen Polo, Volkswagen Rapid, Hyundai Accent, and others are equipped with 13”-15” rim size tires. These passenger car types are leading in terms of sales in Asian countries as well as other parts of the globe. Hence, the demand for 13”-15” rim size tires is the highest. For instance, the top selling passenger cars in China are Hyundai Avante, Nissan Bluebird, Toyota Corolla, Ford ******, and VW Santana among others, and they are equipped with 13”-15” rim size tires. Similarly, in India, the top selling passenger cars – Maruti Suzuki Swift, Swift Dzire, Hyundai Grand i10, Maruti Suzuki WagonR, and Hyundai i20 among others are equipped with these tire sizes. Hence, the increasing number of hatchbacks and compact sedans on road is driving the aftermarket for 13”-15” rim size tires.

Light Commercial Vehicle (LCV) segment is the fastest growing market in tires retreading globally. Retreaded tires give the same mileage as compared to new replacement tires, at 30%-50% less cost, and are supplied with same warranties as that of new tires. For light commercial vehicle, the manufacturing of a single tire consumes, on an average, 26.4 liters of oil. However, retreading of the same tire consumes only 9 liters of oil, which is almost 34% of the new manufacturing process. On the other hand, according to Retread Tire Association, for pickup trucks, new set of four tires cost almost double to that of retreaded tires. A few of the leading tire manufacturers have entered the tire retreading business. For instance, the Goodyear Tire and Rubber Company (U.S.) has more than 1,700 tire retreading and service centers around the globe for commercial trucks. Hence, to cut down the cost, the trend of tire retreading in LCV is increasing gradually.

Tire sizes with 75-85 aspect ratio is the largest market in the tires replacement market. This aspect ratio has the maximum penetration in the heavy trucks, trailers and buses segment. In heavy trucks and trailers, tires with higher aspect ratio give better protection to the cargo and in buses, these tires offer a more comfortable ride and protection from road potholes. Around the globe, almost ~90% of heavy commercial vehicles are equipped with 75-85 aspect ratio tires.  The replacement cost of these tires is also high, as compared to that of 35-55 and 60-70 aspect ratio tire sizes. Hence, with growing demand for trucks & trailers in the next few years, the tires aftermarket is projected to have the largest share of 70-85 aspect ratio tires.
