Europe Tyre Market was valued at USD 41.94 Billion in 2022 and will be valued at USD 52.04 billion in 2030 at a subdued CAGR of 2.99% during the forecast period between 2023 and 2030. The year 2022 witnessed contraction in the Europe tyre market due to the structural damage caused to the industry due to the Russia-Ukraine war which led to significant geo-political tensions between the Russia and Other European countries along with their ally, the US. Sanctions against Russia, one of the leading tyre markets in Europe along with soaring energy prices; inflation at record high levels which led to the lower discretionary purchasing power of Europeans. This contributed to the contraction of the European tyre market in 2022 at a time when the market witnessed recovery in 2021; post adverse impact of lockdown to curb COVID-19 in 2020.
While the overall tyre market contracted, increased demand from consumers was witnessed for ultra-high-performance tyres which had high levels of durability and dependability. The demand for car tyres with higher sidewall puncture resistance and high-design cushion for road stress had also led to the market expansion in this segment of tyres. Other factors driving the need for innovative and premium tyres was the higher living standards of wealthier Europeans who were not impacted significantly due to war and they supported growth in luxury vehicles. The demand for crossover utility vehicles (CUVs) and sport utility vehicles (SUVs) also spurred the market expansion for relatively costlier tyres. Additionally, the expanding presence of leading global tyre manufacturing companies such as Continental AG, Michelin, Bridgestone, Goodyear, Pirelli, etc. drove the tyres production in the market.
The growing consumer interest towards green mobility is leading to increased adoption of electric vehicles in the European region. Europe promotes electric vehicles to increase the demand and buying of electric vehicles. As a result, there is a higher consumer demand for durable tyres for electric and autonomous vehicles. Additionally, the industry is expanding as result of rising demand for green tyres. Compared to the conventional tyres, green tyres offer better road resistance and are created from biodegradable and renewable materials. These factors will drive growth of Europe Tyre Market during the forecast period.
Winter and all-weather tyres are required across the continent due to very cold temperatures. Additionally, as a result of the unpredictable weather, tyres need to be replaced on a regular basis and according to the weather. Thus, such factors are promoting the expansion of the tyre market in Europe.
The COVID-19 had a significant adverse impact on the Europe Tyre Market as most of the companies in the market faced various hurdles as a result of the region's governments imposing rigorous mobility restrictions and regular lockdowns to curb the spread of COVID-19. Tyre imports and exports were impacted by travel and cross-border trade restrictions and supply chain delays which resulted in lack of supply for basic materials like rubber thus impacting production. Additionally, since logistics and shipping were also impacted, deliveries of pre-produced tyres were postponed or cancelled, which led to significant contraction of the market.
Post COVID-19 upliftment of social distancing norms in 2021 led to a smart recovery as manufacturers reinitiated their production operations as well as they focused on strengthening their supply chain network which positively influenced import and export trade of tyres in and out of Europe.
The ongoing Russia-Ukraine war had a significant negative impact on the Europe Tyre Market due to supply chain disruptions, expensive rubber material cost, higher energy cost and inflation thus lowering automobile demand and major demand destruction in the countries engaged in war. Russia is a large source for synthetic rubber and rest of European countries' import it from Russia but due to the war rubber supply from Russia got hampered due to the sanctions imposed against the country. This also resulted in the decline in volumes of tyre sales but increase in prices thus leading to contraction in the Europe Tyre Market.
