A combination of macroeconomic and industry-specific factors is influencing demand for winter tires. Government regulation mandating the use of winter tires is an important driver for the overall supply chain. During the period 2014-2018, favorable regulations mandating the use of winter tires have given a fillip to the overall market.
Countries with harsher winters, such as the US, UK, Canada, Germany, and Scandinavian countries have enacted laws to make winter tires mandatory under certain conditions. In Scandinavian countries, the regulations on winter tire use are stringer in the heavy commercial vehicle (HCV) segment. A significant spike in demand has been witnessed after regulations were introduced in these countries.
The preference towards larger rim sizes is gaining ground. This trend is pervasive across all vehicle types â€" two wheelers, passenger cars, LCV, and HCV. Nearly 60 million 16â€-19â€ passenger car winter tires were sold in 2017, which was the highest across all vehicle classes.

Winter tire manufacturers are not oblivious to the emerging opportunities in this fledgling landscape. In a bid to consolidate their market position, key market participants are focusing on launching advanced winter tires that offer optimal performance under rapid temperature changes.
Premium winter tire companies are making incremental improvements â€" both in terms of technical upgrades and addition of new sizes. For example, Nokian Tyres added new sizes to WR A4, its flagship winter tyre range for Central Europe. The company has made these premium winter tyres available in modern electric cars as well. Continental AG also launched its new range of Winter Contact TS 860 S tires. These premium tires are available in 18â€-21â€ size range, and are targeted at highly motorized vehicles.
Asian winter tire manufacturers Hankook Tire and Yokohama Tire also have a significant penetration in this landscape, with cost being the key differentiator. Although Fact.MRâ€™s study revealed that end-users prefer premium winter tires owing to positive perception and reliability, Asian manufacturers are steadily gaining traction as the market makes a steady shift from niche to mainstream.
