Off-the-road (OTR) tires are large tires used in tractors, forklifts, cranes, bulldozers, and golf carts. They are designed especially for offering more traction on unpaved surfaces like mud, sand, gravel, or loose dirt and are equipped with flexible suspension & deep treads, thereby supporting the vehicle's movement in high terrains.
According to the MarkNtel Advisors' research report, "Mexico Off-the-Road Tire (OTR) Market Analysis, 2021," the market is likely to grow at a CAGR of around 2.88% during 2021-26. The Mexican OTR tire market is an import-dependent industry with an absence of OTR tire production units. The upsurge of the Mexico OTR tire market attributes to the expanding fleet size and increasing sales of Off-highways vehicles. Further, the significantly rising demand for agriculture, construction, & mining machinery is ready to boost the OTR tires market during the forecast period, i.e., 2021-2026. The growing mining activities and the significant deployment of vehicles like earthmoving equipment are further likely to escalate the market growth rate.

Impact of COVID-19
The COVID-19 pandemic has severely impacted the Mexican economy in the previous few years. The lockdown started in late March 2020, has curbed the economic and restriction-free import & export activities. The fear for the virus spread has made many countries inaccessible to Mexican ports. Moreover, the cessation of economic activities in the second & third quarters of 2020 also reduced the replacement demand for OTR tires due to the decreased requirement for earthmoving equipment in Mexico.
