"These added sizes will expand the applications that will benefit from longer tread life and better retreadability."

TechSci Research believes that the decision made by Toyo tires to expand its current tire portfolio would strengthen the company’s position across the United States market, which would further assist the company to cater the growing demand for commercial vehicle tires in the country. The addition of new tire is further expected to increase the competition among the top players in commercial vehicle segment in the United States.

According to a recent report published by TechSci Research, “United States Tire Market Forecast and Opportunities, 2021’’, demand for tires in the United States is forecast to grow at a CAGR of over 5%, in volume terms, during 2016-2021. The vehicle fleet of the country is dominated by passenger car segment, followed by light commercial vehicles, medium and heavy commercial vehicles, off-the-Road (OTR) vehicles and two-wheeler segment. As a result, the passenger car tire segment held the largest volume share in the country’s tire market in 2015, and its dominance is anticipated to continue during the forecast period as well. Leading global tire companies operating in the United States include Bridgestone, Goodyear, Michelin, Cooper, Continental, Sumitomo, Hankook, Yokohama, etc. The report also portrays huge potential of tire market in Southeast and Midwest regions of the country. The vast demand for tires from these regions can mainly be imputed to the large automobile fleet size, high population density coupled with the rapid urbanization in the area.
