The tire retreading market was valued at USD 5.11 billion in 2021 and is expected to reach USD 6.20 billion while recording a CAGR of 3.31% during the forecast period 2022-2027.

The global automotive industry witnessed a hit for the year 2020 due to COVID-19 pandemic-associated lockdown. During the lockdown situation, manufacturing activities, including tire retreading activities, were halted for several weeks in the first half of 2020. This, in turn, hampered the growth of the market.

The tire retreading market is anticipated to be primarily driven by rising prices of new tires, especially for sports utility vehicle tires, primarily attributed to rising natural rubber costs and fluctuating crude oil prices. The increase in the number of commercial vehicles in operation across the world is anticipated to remain a major driving factor for the market

Tire manufacturers have also expressed keen interest in exploring new opportunities and market demand for retreading the tires, owing to the increased inclination toward this technology. Major tire manufacturers have also begun research into this technology, with a vision to cater to this market. For instance,

Bridgestone Corporation, in Sep 2021, announced that it will present its new commercial vehicle portfolio with the latest mobility and tire retreading concepts. As per the announcement, the company expects that the Bridgestone Duravis R002 premium tire which is retreaded is characterized by excellent wet grip, optimal fuel efficiency, and robust carcass.

The tire retreading market is anticipated to be driven by the eco-friendly nature of retreaded tires and lower cost when compared to new tires. Retreading is highly environment-friendly. When the existing tires are made ready for further use, the manufacturers save landfill space. Also, it reduces carbon dioxide emission and saves millions of gallons of oil which is required to manufacture new tires.

Key Market Trends

Because of the economic benefits, truck fleet operators are switching to retreaded tires. More than 70% of commercial transport fleets retread their tires at least once. Because a retread costs around 1/3 to 1/2 the price of a new tire, it’s a great way for a fleet operator to save money.

With proper tire care, worn tires may be retreaded up to four or five times. However, most end users retread tires at least twice. Many major tire companies are opening facilities worldwide to offer retreaded tires. For instance,

As a result of BKT’s USD 56 million investment, the facility’s annual production capacity is around 30,000 MT of off-highway tires. When it’s at full capacity, the plant will manufacture medium- and small-diameter tires designed for agricultural and industrial machinery.

Tire retreading for various medium-duty vehicles has been growing at a rapid pace as several last-mile delivery fleet service providers, logistic companies, etc. are deploying these tires across the fleet. For instance, The larger parcel-delivery fleets, such as UPS and FedEx, already leverage retreads for their last-mile delivery business, Goodyear agreed that as the medium-duty trucking segment continues to grow, so does their investment in retreads as a cost-saving approach.

Several players in the market are offering discounts, price-effective policies, product launches, etc. likely to support the growth of the market during the forecast period. For instance,
