Farm Tire Market -Outline
Products in the global farm tire market feature diagonal threads angled at 45 degrees to offer maximum traction. This characteristic enables products in the global farm tire market to offer higher mobility to agricultural vehicles such as tractors to move quickly through soil and mud. Products in the global farm tire market are made with specialized polymers and rubbers that offer durability and enhanced performance in both on- and off- road applications. Farm tires have also been known to increase both hillside stability as well as fuel efficiency. Certain products in the global farm tire market also feature diamond thread design that allows for minimal soil disruption.
Rising demand for heavy-duty and durable tires along with rise in the adoption of advanced agricultural technologies aimed at producing higher crop yield are fueling the growth in the global farm tire market. Some other motivators in the global farm tire market include rising demand for enhanced automation technologies to bridge the gap between demand and supply in various agricultural processes and increasing demand for advanced farm tires with lower ground compaction and higher load capacities. Demand in the global farm tire market is also expected to rise owing to the increasing need for farm tires that offer increased efficiency with higher loads and significant traction.
U.S. and Global Farm Tire Market: Overview
Farm tires are a sub-segment of specialty tires that are used by vehicles and machines used for farm activities. Sprayers, tractors, trailers, and harvesters are a few examples of farm machinery that use farm tires. Choosing the right farm tire depends on numerous different factors. The size of the tractor tire, soil compaction, fuel economy, traction requirements, and weight of the equipment are to be considered before purchasing farm tires. The farm tire market is divided into two segments namely, replacement farm tires and original equipment (OE) farm tires. These segments can be further divided into radial and bias tires. A radial tire has the plies running perpendicular to the bead and to the ground. A bias tire consists of numerous rubber plies over lapping each other. The overlapped plies form a thick layer that is more sensitive to overheating and less flexible. Radial tires have several advantages over bias tires including less ground damage, lower fuel consumption, greater productivity and reduction in tire replacement. Radial tires have the ability to absorb shocks, impacts and bumps due to its superior strength and flexibility as compared to bias tires. Bias tires are unable to absorb bumps on the ground due to stiffness and the impact and shaking is felt by the machine and driver. Bias tires do not contact as much ground as radial tire which leads to greater ground damage and loss of engine power transmission.
U.S. and Global Farm Tire Market: Regional Evaluation
The growth in end user industries is expected to increase the consumption of farm tires. The growth in agricultural industry is expected to boost demand for farm tires. In addition, rising demand for agricultural machinery from emerging economies of Asia Pacific is expected to further boost demand for farm tires. However, availability of substitutes and fluctuating raw material prices could hamper the growth of the market.
Europe is expected to be the largest market for farm tires followed by North America and Asia Pacific. Asia Pacific is expected to be the fastest growing market for farm tires due to presence of established end user industries. China and India are expected to be major markets in Asia Pacific due to increase in demand for agricultural machinery & equipments from agricultural industry. Republic of Korea, Vietnam, Australia, Japan, New Zealand and Malaysia are other major markets in Asia Pacific. Europe and North America are expected to experience moderate growth. Brazil, Argentina and Peru are expected to be major consumers of farm tires in Latin America.
