In this market, passenger car, light commercial vehicle, and heavy commercial vehicle are the market segments by vehicle type. On the basis of end user, the market is segmented into OEMs and aftermarket. The report also categorizes the market by tire type, which includes bias and radial tires. Based on its comprehensive research, Lucintel forecasts that the OEMs and heavy commercial vehicle segments are expected to show above average growth during the forecast period.

Within the global automotive tire market, the aftermarket segment is expected to remain the largest market segment. Increasing average age of vehicle in operation in the developed nations and high economic growth in the emerging nations are expected to drive the automotive tire sales globally, which would spur growth for this segment over the forecast period.

Asia Pacific is expected to overtake the North American automotive tire market during the forecast period due to its high vehicle production, improvement in the economic conditions and increasing investment by the industry players within the APAC region.

The report further suggests the development of partnerships with customers to create win-win situations and development of low-cost solutions for customers.
