Published Date : Nov 2020 | No. of Pages : 200 Pages | Category : Automation and Transport

The global truck & bus radial (TBR) tire market size is expected to reach US$ 96 billion by 2027 expanding at a CAGR of 6% from 2021 to 2027. The market growth can be primarily attributed to rise in demand for medium-sized trucks, surge in the number of last-mile deliveries due to the growth of the e-Commerce sector, technological advancements, expansion of the production infrastructure, and high demand for truck & bus radial (TBR) tires from developing regions. Market players should focus on expanding their production units and product range, and eye opportunities in other regional markets to gain a competitive edge.

Trade War between China and U.S. to Influence Market Growth

As per current trends, the ongoing trade war between China and the U.S. is expected to have a strong impact on the overall growth of the global truck & bus radial (TBR) tire market. Evolving regulatory landscape, increasing anti-dumping duties, and Section 301 tariffs imposed by the U.S. on leading truck manufacturers in China are likely to have a noteworthy impact on the overall growth prospects of the truck & bus radial (TBR) tire market. While the U.S. continues to impose stringent regulations for the players operating in China, as a result, the export volumes of truck & bus radial (TBR) tires from other developing economies, including Thailand, Vietnam, and India have increased. The increasing tariff on Chinese products is another factor expected to decrease the demand for Chinese-made truck & bus radial (TBR) tires in the U.S. during the forecast period.

The demand for commercial original equipment truck & bus radial (TBR) tire has increased over the past few years. The electrification of delivery vehicles across developed regions of the world including North America and Europe, particularly in the last-mile segment, is anticipated to generate notable demand for truck & bus radial (TBR) tires during the assessment period.

Market Players Focus on Product Launch and Production Capacity to Gain Advantage

Several players operating in the current truck & bus radial (TBR) tire market are increasingly focusing on increasing their market share leaning toward both, organic as well as inorganic strategies. Several companies operating in the tire sector are diversifying their product portfolio and diverging into the production of truck & bus radial (TBR) tires. For instance, in March 2020, Ralson India announced that the company is on the course to expand its product portfolio and dive into the production of truck & bus radial (TBR) tires, mainly for electric buses and trucks. While product diversification is expected to remain important, market players are gradually expanding their market share by increasing investments in other regional markets. For instance, in December 2019, Apollo Tyres, a leading Indian tire company announced that the company is likely to enter the truck & bus radial (TBR) tire market in Saudi Arabia and focus on the production of the same to capture the market in the country.

Negative Impact of Volatile Economic Behavior on Trucking Sector

The COVID-19 pandemic is expected to have a strong impact on the overall growth of the global truck & bus radial (TBR) tire market in 2020. The volatile economic behavior of both, business providers and consumers is anticipated to hinder the growth of the truck & bus radial (TBR) tire market in 2020. In addition, disruption in the global supply chain due to restrictions on the movement of transportation fleets worldwide is another factor that is likely to dent the growth of the global truck & bus radial (TBR) tire market. However, as governments are gradually lifting restrictions, global markets are gradually opening up due to which, considerable movement across the market is anticipated.


  • Steady rise in the production of medium-duty trucks, globally, has boosted the demand for TBR tires. Logistics and road transportation sectors have witnessed rapid expansion in Asia Pacific, which has fueled the demand for TBR tires in the region. Steady economic expansion post 2008 financial crisis propelled the demand for trucks in developed and developing countries.
  • Favorable trade agreements and entry of commercial vehicle manufacturers in Latin America and Asia Pacific have driven the demand for TBR tires
  • Increasing awareness among consumers regarding vehicle maintenance, adoption of tire monitoring systems by fleet managers, and expansion of retailer and dealers network in rural areas are projected to drive the truck & bus radial (TBR) tire market during the study period


  • Tire manufactures rely heavily on raw materials such as natural rubber & Brent crude. Prominent manufacturers, such as Bridgestone, cultivate their own rubber, and are in a better position to tackle commodity price hikes and supply scarcity. Smaller tire manufacturers face high losses due to volatility in raw material price, which translates into their higher product cost and loss of competitive edge.
  • Tire manufactures with off-shore production facilities are subjected to foreign exchange risks and volatility in foreign currency exchange rates that hamper revenues


  • Digital retailing is gaining momentum, and tire manufacturers are investing to launch dedicated online portals besides selling tires on third party marketplaces and digital stores. The COVID-19 pandemic has led to a surge in online sales of tires.
  • Intelligent tires & tires integrated with sensors are gaining popularity in the market, as awareness about maintenance schedule and health of tires is increasing among fleet owners to avoid vehicle breakdowns

Expansion of Truck & Bus Radial (TBR) Tire Market

Last mile deliveries and advent of e-Commerce have spurred road transportation traffic. The increase in the number of miles driven by trucks is boosting the demand for TBR tires. TBR tires have a high aftermarket demand, owing to the requirement of periodic replacement. The rise in the number of on-road trucks in developing regions such as Asia Pacific, Latin America, and Middle East & Africa is projected to boost the truck & bus radial (TBR) tire market in these regions during the forecast period. Awareness about vehicle maintenance among consumers, adoption of tire monitoring systems by fleet managers, and expansion of retailer and dealers network in rural areas are estimated to drive the truck & bus radial (TBR) tire market during the forecast period.

Based on application, the truck segment held a dominant share of the global truck & bus radial (TBR) tire market in 2017 and 2020. Trucks have a very high volume of sales as compared to buses and hence, contribute to the higher demand for OE & aftermarket TBR tires. The usage of buses is anticipated to decline due to COVID-19 and subsequently, hamper new bus sales. The market share held by the bus segment is likely to decline during the forecast period.

In terms of sales channel, the aftermarket segment held a dominating share of the global truck & bus radial (TBR) tire market in 2017 and 2020. Truck tires are being frequently replaced, as trucks have very low ideal time and tires undergo wear & tear. The market share held by the aftermarket segment is expected to increase during the forecast period, owing to the rise in the number of on road trucks & buses worldwide, prompting the requirement of aftermarket TBR tires.

Regional Analysis of Truck & Bus Radial (TBR) Tire Market
