Growth Opportunity: Increasing Light Commercial Vehicle Manufacturing Units to Support the Market Growth
The growing light commercial vehicle (LCV) manufacturing units in the region like North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, etc., are expected to facilitate the demand for light commercial vehicle tires during the forecast period. The booming agricultural farming, rising shared mobility platforms, etc., are some of the driving factors in the establishment of LCV production plants. Along with this, the surging demand for electric LCVs in line with reducing carbon emissions from transportation is also one of the key aspects estimated to amplify the market growth. For instance:
Based on Demand:
Based on demand, the replacement segment dominated the global market and is likely to continue its dominance in the forecast years. It owes to prominent factors like the expanding production of vehicles and numerous technological advancements in the industry. Furthermore, the gradual shift toward living a better lifestyle, and environment-friendly tires, with growing tire sales in the replacement segment are other crucial factors contributing to the continuously increasing market size.
Based on Vehicle Type:
Among them, Pickup Trucks and Vans are likely to witness the fastest market growth in the forecast years, majorly owing to their spacious seating and reasonable prices of tires used in them. Moreover, their easy availability & wide usage in the transportation of goods from one place to another require timely up-gradation of tires, leading to more sales of commercial tires. Hence, these factors are propelling the demand for pickup trucks and vans, thereby fueling the overall market growth across the globe.
Geographically, the Global Light Commercial Vehicle Market expands across:
Europe is likely to witness substantial market growth in the forecast years due to the surging initiatives taken by numerous governments in the region to decrease carbon emissions. Ensuring this requires vehicles' tires to be replaced when their quality falls below acceptable limits and attain their roadworthiness. It has become a significant driving factor for the market growth in the region, and hence, it is likely to continue achieving the fastest market growth in the global market. Furthermore, the growing demand for electric light commercial vehicles is also anticipated to support the LCV tire market growth in the forecast years, as the region is extensively focusing on curbing carbon emissions from transportation by deploying large-scale on-road electric vehicles.
