Tire cords are reinforcement for the tired used for maintaining the shape of a tire. Tire cords are primarily made of polyester, steel, nylon, aramid, rayon, and hybrid. These materials offer several beneficial properties: high tensile strength, controlled deformation, and abrasion resistance, contributing to their use as core components. These tire cords are generally made by fiber, yarn twisting process, weaving process, or dipping process. The tire cords are crucial for passenger cars, heavy commercial vehicles, light vehicles, and others.

Market Dynamics

The global tire cord market growth is driven by growing demand for eco-friendly manufacturing, demand for high-performance tires, and increasing sales of hybrids, electric vehicles, and hydrogen cars.

Demand for eco-friendly manufacturing

The demand for eco-friendly manufacturing is expected to drive the global tire cord market. Leading companies have been working on various sustainable practices for the manufacturing of eco-friendly tires for sustainability and the environment and adhere to the regulatory bodies. For instance, French tire company Michelin has approved the use of polyester tire cord recycled from Waste PET bottles, the Carbios’ enzymatic recycling technology is used for PET plastic waste as a reinforcing fiber in the tires, creating a long-term end-use application for waste plastic from PET bottles.

Increasing research and developments are being conducted to create new opportunities from waste with continuous government support. In 2019, Continental A.G. and Kordsa Technik Teksil A.S. developed a sustainable technology for bonding textile reinforcing materials with rubber compounds. The technology is aimed at use in tire cord materials. Moreover, Kordsa Teknik Tekstil A.Ş. has launched its product green tire cord fabric based on its sustainable and innovative approach without toxic chemicals that affect human health.

Fluctuating prices of raw material

The tire cord market is impacted by the fluctuating prices of raw materials used to produce tires. The availability and cost of raw materials are vital factors for the manufacturers to decide on cost structure. Raw materials such as nylon and polyethylene in tire cords are manufactured from petroleum-based derivatives and are susceptible to fluctuations in prices. There has been high volatility in oil prices in the past with increasing demand across the globe, affecting the cost structure of the tire cord market.

Moreover, the market has been adversely impacted due to the prevailing pandemic scenario; creating uncertainty in the market is one of the major factors responsible for restraining the market.

COVID-19 Impact Analysis

Due to the pandemic, stakeholders across the tire cord industry have seen a notable impact as all the production work, factories, and other activities were closed. As a result, production was hindered by halts and supply chain disruption globally. Furthermore, after the pandemic, the governments still impose various restrictions, such as working with half the workforce and fewer operating hours hindering the production cycle of the market. As a result, the losses are incorporated with less demand from the automotive industry. According to the industry analysis, global car sales declined between 20 and 30%. However, the market is expected to recover after the pandemic, with sectors aiming to complete the existing projects with higher production rates to recover from the incorporated losses.

Segment Analysis

By material type, the tire cord market is broadly classified into nylon, rayon, aramid, steel, polyethylene terephthalate, and hybrid.

The nylon tire cord market is expected to grow at the fastest CAGR during the forecast period (2021-2028)

The nylon tire cord is expected to hold the largest market for tire cord market and is expected to continue its dominance in the forecast period. The nylon tire cord has been emphasized in the market due to its high tenacity, toughness, superior fatigue resistance, and good adhesion to rubber. The increasing demand for high-strength tire cords from numerous vehicle types is owing to the market growth. Nylon tire cords are widely used in the production of high wear resistance tires require for commercial applications. Nylon Cord is used in agricultural tires, Aircraft tires, truck tires, and others.

Moreover, steel cord has also been significantly used in heavy commercial vehicles. For instance, in 2020, Bridgestone Corporation introduced a revolutionary MasterCore off-the-road tire line in Tokyo. The tire is engineered durability, based on a combination of unique technologies, which include a new type of steel cord and other advanced materials.
