Rolling resistance of tires affects the fuel economy of a vehicle.

According to Continental Corporation, 16% of the total fuel consumption of a vehicle is attributed to rolling resistance. Thus, decreasing the rolling resistance will lead to significant amount of fuel saving.

According to Exxon Mobil Chemical analysis, a 10% decrease in the rolling resistance can lead to 1-2% increase in the fuel economy of passenger cars and light trucks. This will further lead to 2-4% increase in the miles per gallon (mpg) of a vehicle.

Thus, the demand for low rolling resistance tires is increasing. However, the market growth is restrained by factors such as fluctuating raw material prices of natural rubber and synthetic rubber.

Key Target Audience;

  • Manufacturers of automotive tires
  • Manufacturers of off-highway tires
  • Raw-material manufacturers of tires/tire components (suppliers for tier I)
  • Traders, distributors, and suppliers of tires or tire components or raw materials
  • Regional manufacturer associations
  • Aftermarket and tire retreading associations
  • Automotive OEMs
  • Organized and unorganized aftermarket suppliers
  • Tire retreading companies
  • Government’s national and regional environmental regulatory agencies or organizations


Light commercial vehicles are estimated to witness the highest growth in the retreading tires market. According to the Rubber Manufacturers Association, light truck retread accounted for only 1.67% of the tires aftermarket, in terms of volume.

Retreading of tires has always been a popular concept with heavy commercial vehicles, but with time the potential benefits of using it for light commercial vehicles has been noticed. In a light duty vehicle, single tire manufacturing consumes, on an average, 26.4 liters of oil.

However, retreading of the same tire consumes only 9 liters of oil, which is almost 34% of the new manufacturing process. On the other hand, according to the Retread Tire Association, the cost for a set of four large SUV tires is around USD 1,000.

Almost 50% of the cost is saved by adopting retreading for light duty vehicles. Thus, retreading suppliers are now focusing on light duty vehicle retreading.

Certain tire manufacturers are also entering the retreading business, such as The Goodyear Tire & Rubber Company (U.S.), which has more than 1700 tire retreading and service centers for commercial vehicles.
