The study encompasses market attractiveness analysis, wherein application segments are benchmarked based on their market size, growth rate and general attractiveness.


Albany, NY -- (SBWIRE) -- 02/11/2016 -- Automotive tire is one of the most complex engineered products requiring a range of raw materials such as natural rubber, artificial rubber, carbon black, cord fabric, steel and different chemicals. Tire cords are reinforcing materials in the tire, providing it with dimensional stability and acting as supports for the vehicle weight. These also help to keep tires in shape in different road conditions. Tire cords and tire fabrics are very important for the performance of a tire, and as a result for the vehicle as well. Different types of reinforcement constructions are required for different types of vehicles, and this depends on their respective uses and load-bearing requirements. For instance, passenger vehicles, heavy commercial vehicles, light commercial vehicles, two wheelers, off-road vehicles, agricultural vehicles, and aircraft have different tire cord and fabric requirements.

The degree of radialization is high in North America and Europe where commercial vehicles as well as personal vehicles use radial tires. However the degree of radialization of automotive is much less in Asia Pacific where radial tires are mostly limited to personal vehicles. High volume of heavy vehicle production which predominantly use nylon tire cord boosts the market for nylon dipped tire cords in this region.
