The report forecasts the size of the market in current U.S. dollars for tire reinforcement materials in value terms for each material and/or volume terms from 2012 through 2017. The intended audience of this report includes tire cord fabric manufacturers, technical fiber producers, technical textile producers, steel wire and steel filament producers, and tire manufacturers.

STUDY GOALS AND OBJECTIVES

The goal of this study is to help readers achieve a comprehensive understanding of the recent advances and trends in tire reinforcement material manufacturing, applications, and global and regional markets. Toward this end, this report will cover tire reinforcements manufactured with steel, polyester, rayon, nylon, aramid, PEN (polyethylene naphthalate), and other materials. This report will meet the following objectives. The major types and advanced technologies of tire reinforcement material manufacturing processes will be described. Key properties and advanced technologies related to raw materials will be discussed, as well as the commercial applications in which these materials are used. Present consumption and future demand for these materials will be measured and forecast for global markets categorized by eight world regions: China, North America, South America, Western Europe, Eastern Europe, India, East Asia and the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN), and the rest of the world. Trends in technology will be analyzed and forecast. The impact of governmental regulations will be ascertained. Patents of tire reinforcement materials will be reviewed. The structural dynamics of the tire reinforcement materials industry will be outlined, along with profiles of key manufacturers in China, the U.S., Japan, Korea, India, France, and other countries. This report will review global markets for tire reinforcement materials and will forecast trends and sales in these markets through 2017. Important manufacturers, technologies, and factors influencing demand will be discussed. Tire reinforcement materials include steel cord fabric, steel wire, polyester cord fabric, rayon cord fabric, nylon cord fabric, aramid cord fabric, and PEN cord fabric. These materials are used for manufacturing carcasses, belt plies, cap plies, and bead for tires for automobiles, bicycles, motorcycles, and other vehicles. The tire reinforcement material market is closely dependent on the tire industry. Therefore, global and regional tire production will be described. Tire reinforcement materials are made from steel and manmade fibers. This report will discuss the technologies and markets in the steel fiber and tire industries that influence demand for and development of tire reinforcement materials. BCC’s goal in conducting this study was to determine the current status of the tire reinforcement material industry and to assess its growth potential over a five-year period from 2012 to 2017. A primary objective was to present a comprehensive analysis of the current tire reinforcement material market and project its future direction.

REASONS FOR DOING THE STUDY

There are two reasons for doing this study: Tire reinforcement material manufacturers need to understand market trends and new technologies in the industry in order to plan their production and R&D for the next few years and beyond. Tire manufacturers need to understand the market and technology trends related to tire reinforcement materials in order to plan tire design and R&D. A tire manufacturer has a number of aspects to consider when choosing a tire reinforcement material for making a tire: chemical composition, cost, size, weight, strength, and construction. Advanced materials and market changes may allow tire engineers to design better or more cost-effective products.

SCOPE OF REPORT

The report forecasts the size of the market in current U.S. dollars for tire reinforcement materials in value terms for each material and/or volume terms from 2012 through 2017. The report forecasts the market size or output for the following: Tire reinforcement materials such as steel tire cord fabric, steel bead wire, polyester tire cord fabric, nylon tire cord fabric, rayon tire cord fabric, aramid tire cord fabric, PEN tire cord fabric, and hybrid reinforcement materials. Tires such as radial light-duty tire, radial heavy-duty tire, bias light-duty tire, bias heavy-duty tire, bicycle tire, motorcycle tire, and other cycle tires. The tire reinforcement materials market is directly dependent on the tire industry, the performance of which is closely intertwined with the development of the automobile and cycle industries. The above forecasts are classified on the basis of product type, technology type, end application, and geographical region.

INTENDED AUDIENCE

The intended audience of this report includes tire cord fabric manufacturers, technical fiber producers, technical textile producers, steel wire and steel filament producers, and tire manufacturers. Automobile producers, steel makers, and chemical suppliers also may be interested in this report.

METHODOLOGY

Both primary and secondary research methodologies were used in preparing this study. Estimates of current market demand are made for 2011 and are projected over the next five years from 2012 through 2017. Projections are made in terms of constant U.S. dollars (2011), unadjusted for inflation. Growth is presented in terms of a compound average annual growth rate (CAGR).
