"Light commercial vehicles to be the fastest growing segment in the tires retreading market"

Light commercial vehicles are estimated to witness the highest growth in the retreading tires market. According to the Rubber Manufacturers Association, light truck retread accounted for only 1.67% of the tires aftermarket, in terms of volume. Retreading of tires has always been a popular concept with heavy commercial vehicles, but with time the potential benefits of using it for light commercial vehicles has been noticed. In a light duty vehicle, single tire manufacturing consumes, on an average, 26.4 liters of oil. However, retreading of the same tire consumes only 9 liters of oil, which is almost 34% of the new manufacturing process. On the other hand, according to the Retread Tire Association, the cost for a set of four large SUV tires is around USD 1,000. Almost 50% of the cost is saved by adopting retreading for light duty vehicles. Thus, retreading suppliers are now focusing on light duty vehicle retreading. Certain tire manufacturers are also entering the retreading business, such as The Goodyear Tire & Rubber Company (U.S.), which has more than 1700 tire retreading and service centers for commercial vehicles.
