Key Trends in the Market
Smart tires have been one of the latest trends in the passenger car tire market due to the integration of TREEL sensors & Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS), which enhances the performance of the tires by sensing the road condition. Tires provide real-time information about the road temperature, tire pressure, traction, and vehicle acceleration to their users when contacted on the road, thus increasing the demand for tires. Various companies such as Goodyear, Pirelli, JK Tires, Michelin, etc., have been developing these tires for integration into passenger cars. Thus, the integration of these tires in the OEM passenger car would generate the demand for aftermarket tire sales during the forecasted period. For instance:
Impact of COVID-19 on the Asia Aftermarket Passenger Car Tire Market
In 2020, the COVID-19 pandemic severely impacted the economies of Asian countries such as China, India, Indonesia, Malaysia, etc. As of late March 2020, imports & exports were disrupted due to the imposition of lockdown in the countries. In the aftermath of COVID-19, many countries were unable to access their ports due to fears of the virus spreading. Thus with the cessation of economic activities in the second & third quarters of 2020, the replacement demand for passenger car tires decreased, owing to the reduction in mobile movement of the passenger cars in the region. Further, offices, airports, railway stations, tourist places, and others were closed, leading to a decrease in ‘vehicles miles traveled’ by the passenger car. This led to a decline in the demand for passenger car tire replacements.
However, in the longer run, the Asia passenger car aftermarket tire would suffer the minimal impact from COVID-19, as the manufacturing industries of the tire began their operations after the removal of COVID-19 restrictions. In addition, the mobility of the citizens also increased gradually from the end of 2020, which increased the use of passenger cars leading to the wear & tear of tires. In addition, Asian countries such as India, China, Australia, etc., have experienced robust increases in the sales of passenger cars, which is likely to contribute to a surge in demand for aftermarket passenger car tires.
Based on the Tire Type:
Here, the radial tires captured a dominating share in the Asia Aftermarket Passenger Car Tire market during 2017-21 & the trend is projected to continue in the forthcoming period, owing to the surging radicalization of cars in the country's tire industry. Besides, the enhanced features of the tire, such as low rolling resistance, large bearing capacity, high elasticity, and strong buffer force, make it more appealing to the consumer.
The growing adoption of new energy vehicles by the countries to tackle the rising issue of CO2 emission from the transport industry is further expected to fuel the market growth. Moreover, with the growing number of registered electric cars in the region, the demand for aftermarket radial tires is expected to grow at a robust rate in the forthcoming years.
Based on the Price Category:
Among them, the Economy Price Category held a considerable share in the Asia Aftermarket Passenger Car Tire market during the historical period, as the majority of the population in Asia is middle-class & budget-conscious. Therefore, they prefer tires with longer lives that are fuel-efficient & have moderate pricing. On the other hand, demand for budget tires is expected to fall slightly as a result of rising government initiatives in various countries, including India, Thailand, and South Korea, to boost domestic tire production & reduce imports of Chinese tires, which primarily include budget tires. Therefore, owing to these factors, the economy tires would lead the market growth in Asia during the forecast period, 2022-27.
Based on the Sales Channel:
Of them all, the Multi-brand Stores held a notable share in the Asia Aftermarket Passenger Car Tire market during 2017-2021 as multi-brand stores offer numerous choices for the customer to choose a particular brand in a specific size from a wide variety of tires. Moreover, the multi-brand tire sales have been supported by various factors such as ease for the tire companies to sell their products without getting involved in hefty investments to cover the vast population spread in different geographical locations across the region.
Further, the multi-brand store would be holding a substantial market share during 2022-2027 due to the inclination of customers to get multiple options under one roof as well as ease of replacing their tires without hassle.
Geographically, the Asia Aftermarket Passenger Car Tire Market expands across:
Of all the countries, China witnessed robust growth in recent years, owing to the rising demand for passenger cars, which led manufacturers to enhance the production of vehicles, thereby developing the tire market significantly. Consequently, the growing sales of passenger cars positively influence the passenger car tire aftermarket. As per the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology, in 2020, around 25 million vehicles were sold in China, including 19.99 million passenger car vehicles.
Considering this extensive fleet of passenger cars in the country & the growth of automobile ownership per capita with increasing average miles would be crucial to driving the passenger car tire aftermarket. In addition, customers are becoming more aware of periodic maintenance, safety, affordability, and durability, which in turn shifts their preference toward low-rolling resistance tires, which dictate the demand for aftermarket tires in passenger cars.
Recent Development by Leading Companies:
Key Driver: Surging Demand for Used Cars Boosts the Requirement for Aftermarket Passenger Car Tire
The countries in the Asian region, such as China, India, and Australia, have seen a significant increase in the sale of used cars during the historical period. The rising cost of new cars & customers' desire for imported luxury vehicles have fueled the region's used car market's growth. Furthermore, depending on the depreciation & condition of the car, used cars are generally offered to customers at much lower prices. Hence, the condition of the pre-installed tires, which need to be replaced by the supplier or owner, determines the need for aftermarket tires. For instance:
In addition, countries with the least car manufacturing companies, such as Bangladesh, New Zealand, Singapore, the Philippines, etc., have been the major importer of used cars from Japan & China. Hence, the expansion of the used cars market in Asian countries has led to the rise in demand for aftermarket tires in both exporting & importing countries.
Possible Restraint: Rising Complexities Among the OEMs for Manufacturing Tires to Hinder the Market Growth
In comparison to a conventional engine car, electric vehicles (EVs), and autonomous vehicles (AVs) have batteries that place a significant load & additional strain on the tire. As a result, the tire manufacturer needs to adjust the tire design to optimize load-bearing capability & handle the electric vehicle's instant torque. Further, the design of the tire must be changed to maintain low rolling resistance & increase the vehicle's fuel efficiency.
Furthermore, different sensors must be fitted to the tires of EVs & AVs to cater to moment-by-moment judgments. Thus, these factors created a challenge for the aftermarket tire industry, as manufacturing companies have not been able to completely cope with emerging trends in passenger car tires from various companies.
Market Opportunity: Rising Sales of Electric Cars Generate the Demand for Aftermarket Tire
The rising depletion of fossil fuel reserves at a considerable rate & the burgeoning growth of carbon emission has forced the consumers to incline toward the adoption of electric cars. This led to an increase in government initiatives of the Asian countries to launch certain policies to help reduce carbon emissions. For instance, in 2020, the Singapore government announced to phase out its all-internal combustion engines of automobiles & replace all of them with cleaner energy vehicles by 2040. Hence, the demand for electric passenger car aftermarket tires would create substantial growth opportunities for the Asia Aftermarket Passenger Car Tire market in the forthcoming years.
