Market Overview:

The global winter tire market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 5.5% from 2018 to 2030. The growth in the market can be attributed to the increasing demand for winter tires from the passenger car and light truck/SUV segments, owing to the increase in incidences of extreme weather conditions across different regions. In addition, the increasing demand for winter tires from emerging economies such as China and India is also contributing to the growth of this market. On the basis of type, studded tires are expected to account for a larger share of this market than studless tires during the forecast period. This can be attributed to their superior traction performance on icy and snowy roads as compared with studless tires. However, due to environmental concerns regarding noise pollution caused by studded tires, their popularity is declining in developed countries such as Europe and North America; consequently, their share in these regions is expected to decline over the forecast period.

Global Winter Tire Industry Outlook

Product Definition:

A winter tire is a type of tire that is designed for use in colder environments, where the roads are typically icy, snowy, or wet. Winter tires are made with a tread design that helps to grip the road surface better than other types of tires, which can help to improve safety and performance in winter conditions.


Studded winter tires are a combination of run-flat tire and studs. They have steel or alloy rims, which are punctured with holes to allow air inside the tire to expand, thereby providing better braking action. The addition of studded tires has been made mandatory by the European Union for all vehicles manufactured from 1st January 2012 onwards.


A studless tire is a type of tire which does not have metal reinforcement rods or nails in it. The absence of these aids in the smooth rolling and hence increases the safety aspect. These tires are designed to provide better grip to vehicles on ice, snow and slush as they provide better traction than traditional tires.

The global market for studless winter tires is still at a nascent stage with major players such as Michelin, Bridgestone Corp.

Application Insights:

Passenger tires dominated the overall market in 2017, accounting for over 60.0% share of the global volume. The segment is projected to witness significant growth during the forecast period on account of increasing disposable income and population in major economies such as India, China, Brazil and so on. Moreover, growing demand for low-cost air travel owing to increased disposable income will further boost industry growth during the forecast period.

The light truck/SUV tire segment is estimated to expand at a CAGR of XX% from 2018 to 2030 owing to rising demand for vehicles with superior performance in snow and ice conditions along with enhanced safety features required by end-users such as family members or friends visiting them from another city or country at their homes etcetera (i).

Regional Analysis:

Asia Pacific dominated the global winter tire market in 2017 and is expected to continue its dominance over the forecast period. The presence of major players such as Bridgestone, Michelin, Goodyear and Yokohama is one of the primary reasons for regional growth. Moreover, increasing demand for four-wheeler vehicles in countries such as India and China are driving regional growth.

Europe was estimated to be the second largest region followed by North America owing to increased consumer preference towards winter tires over other seasons. In addition, stringent regulations laid down by regulatory bodies such as ETRTO regarding proper installation of tires on different vehicles are further propelling market growth across regions. For instance; studded tires should not be used on a vehicle that travels above 200 kmph or less than 50 kmph at night time or during poor weather conditions etc., This ensures maximum safety for drivers and passengers from harsh climatic conditions associated with winters across various regions around the world.

Growth Factors:

  • Increasing demand for winter tires from the automotive sector as a result of increasing awareness about the benefits of using winter tires over all-season tires.
  • Rising demand for luxury cars and SUVs, which are typically equipped with winter tires as standard equipment.
  • Growing popularity of winter tire festivals and events that promote the use of winter tires among consumers in North America and Europe.
  • Proliferation of online retail channels for selling winter tires, which is making it easier for consumers to find and purchase them at competitive prices.
