Tire cords and tire fabrics are the backbone of tire construction. These impart the necessary stability, safety, and comfort to a vehicle. Application of tire cord and tire fabrics varies across the types of tires used in vehicles. Usage of tire cords and tire fabrics also differs from one region to another.
The type of tire and its end-use governs the choice of tire cord materials. The suitability of each product type of tire cord depends on various factors such as type of vehicle, load bearing requirement, and road conditions. Tire cords help maintain the dimensional stability of the tire and are responsible for riding comfort and support of the vehicle.
Steel tire cords are stronger than their fiber counterparts. Steel tire cords exhibit excellent heat resistance, fatigue resistance, and limited contraction. The steel tire cord market has expanded significantly over the past decade due to the high growth of radial tires, which replaced cross-ply and bias tires. Steel tire cords accounted for over 55% of the global demand for tire cords and tire fabrics in 2014. Radial tires offer certain advantages over cross-ply tires; thus, the former has managed to almost completely replace the latter. Radial tires have more flexible sidewalls, reduce fuel consumption by lowering rolling resistance, provide more comfortable ride, and ensure extended longevity by producing less heat in tires. Radial tires are manufactured by reinforcing tires with steel belts along with other fabric cords such as polyester or nylon.
Rate of radialization of tires is high in regions such as North America and Europe, due to well-developed road conditions. However, the rate of radialization in commercial vehicles (LCV and HCV) is relatively low in Asia Pacific, which is the largest region in terms of demand for tire cords and tire fabrics. Inferior road conditions in many parts of Asia Pacific act as restraint for radial tires. Nylon tire cords are used widely in bias tires in vehicles in the region. This is driving the global demand for nylon tire cords.
