OTR Tire Market: Overview

  • The global OTR tire market is expected to expand at a growth rate of ~4% between 2019 and 2027, due to expansion of construction & mining, agriculture, and industrial sectors. Recovery of the global economy post financial crisis has led to spending on infrastructure and purchase of off-road vehicles for utilization in mining and construction industries.
  • Industrial and agriculture sectors in developing countries are expanding significantly and adopting off-road vehicles in order to improve and boost productivity, which in turn is driving the demand for OTR tires

Drivers of OTR Tire Market

  • Increasing population and demand for higher yield are driving the demand for tractors and agriculture equipment vehicles, thereby driving the demand for OTR tires. Increase in preference for using modern equipment for farming activities has boosted the adoption of tractors, which in turn is fueling the growth of the OTR tire market.
  • Developing countries, such as China, India, Brazil, and Mexico, are investing considerably in construction, thus employing a high number of construction vehicles. This, in turn, is boosting the OTR tire market. In 2017, China invested around US$ 9 Bn in construction projects with 16 Central and European Countries as a part of “Belt and Road Initiative”. Initiation of bilateral agreements and development of intercontinental routes to improve trade are expected to drive the demand for construction vehicles, which in turn is anticipated to propel the OTR tire market.
  • Advent of manufacturing facilities in developing countries is fueling the demand for industrial vehicles, such as warehouse forklifts and trucks, in these countries, thereby propelling the demand for OTR tires

Challenges for OTR Tire Market

  • Rising commodity prices of natural rubber and demand-supply gap in the industry are challenges to the OTR tire market. Manufacturing of giant OTR tires (57’’- 63’’) requires significant capital investments, which is a key factor restraining the market.
