Global automotive aquaplaning solution has the potential to reach 37.13 thousand units in 2030, advancing with a CAGR of 37.64% between 2026-2030. Rising awareness towards road and vehicle safety and increased technological advancement in automobiles are driving the growth of the global automotive aquaplaning solution in the forecast years.

Aquaplaning, also referred to as hydroplaning, occurs when a film of water builds up between the tires and the road surface, which breaks the continuity between the tires and the road resulting in loss of control over the vehicle. Aquaplaning occurs when the proportion of water on which the vehicle passes is greater than the proportion of the thread on the vehicle tires. The grooves on the tires cannot scatter the amount of water on the road, which makes the car susceptible to aquaplane, which could be treacherous. Generally, aquaplaning acts on the front tires as the front tires splash away the water present in front of the rear tires, reducing the quantity of water which comes in contact with the rear tires. The braking systems are usually integrated into the front wheel, and this means that in these conditions, steering and braking inputs will reduce, and the driver will have less control over the vehicle.

A Rise in Safety Concerns

There seems to be an upsurge in vehicle accidents in many regions in recent years. According to statistics from the United Kingdom government, around 24,530 individuals died due to accidents in 2021, and many people suffered from severe injuries caused by traffic accidents. According to WHO, approximately 3,700 people are being killed every day globally, and more than 1.35 million people are killed each year in road crashes of vehicles. People seem to be getting more worried about road safety as traffic accidents increase. As a matter of safety concern, people seek for a car with advanced safety features such as front collision warning, rear cross-traffic assist, automated braking system, and other technologies that assure vehicle stability while driving in adverse weather.

Product Innovation in Aquaplaning Solutions

Many organizations have made investments to obtain diverse solutions to the aquaplaning problem. Pirelli, a tire manufacturer, states that speed is the principal cause of hydroplaning; at speeds of 60-70 kilometers per hour, automobile tires can easily penetrate puddles, but hydroplaning comes into effect when cars exceed this threshold, depending on a variety of factors such as tire properties, inflation pressure, and so on. Nevertheless, precautions such as frequent tire inflation pressure monitoring and assuring that all tires have a minimum legal tread depth of 1.6mm can help minimize the chance of hydroplaning. Continental, for example, deploys Electronic-Tire Information System (eTIS) sensors to generate early warnings using signals from surround-view cameras installed on side mirrors to overcome the aquaplaning conditions.

Potential Demand of Aquaplaning Solution in Sports Cars

Maintaining traction on a wet road is one of the most typical issues encountered while driving a sports car. To overcome this, EasyRain i.S.p.A. and Picasso have formed a partnership in which the D.A.I. virtual sensor is integrated into the PS-01 model of Picasso. EasyRain specializes in advanced anti-aquaplaning safety systems development. The D.A.I sensor developed by EasyRain is being used to improve automotive safety by alerting drivers to crucial wet road conditions. Based on an in-depth analysis of vehicle dynamics parameters, the D.A.I sensor enables the development of new safety features. The integration of aquaplaning technology in sports cars is projected to boost demand for aquaplaning solutions in the coming year.

Technological Advancement in Tread Pattern and Material Enhancement

Tire tread patterns are the grooves and ridges that offer grip and traction while allowing the wheel to function normally. There are three types of tread patterns such as symmetric, asymmetric, and directional. The most prevalent tread pattern on wheels is symmetric. Asymmetric tread designs can repel water and grip on a wet surface while optimizing contact areas on dry roads in dry and slick circumstances. The lateral grooves in directional tires form a V across the tire, reducing the possibility of hydroplaning. Rainy conditions are most often best handled by tires with deeper grooves. Tread patterns are legally mandatory on public roadway tires. The primary function of the tread pattern is to expel water, which can increase the interface patch with the road and offer grip and better traction in wet circumstances. When traveling at high speeds on wet roads, a sheet of water can form between the tire and the road surface, reducing road contact and steering responsiveness. In the aquaplaning situation, the driver's ability to control the car is hindered when the tires fail to grasp the road adequately during aquaplaning. They cannot brake, steer, or accelerate. New tires may disseminate up to 113.56 liters of water at 80 kilometers per hour every second. As the depth of the tire tread wears down over regular usage. It is required to maintain tread depth above 1.6 mm to avoid skidding the vehicle. Continuous advancements in rubber chemistry and tire design have assisted in lowering tire rolling resistance, increasing mileage, and improving performance in extreme weather situations in recent years. Attributed to the growing interest in sustainability, a tire optimized for low rolling resistance using renewable materials such as elastomers can be an alternative solution for aquaplaning.
