In this report, Technavio highlights the growth of airless tires as one of the key emerging trends in the global passenger vehicle tire market:
Global passenger vehicle tire market: Growth of airless tires
Airless tires or non-pneumatic tires are those that are supported by air pressure. Most of these tires are used in small vehicles, such as riding lawn mowers and motorized golf carts. These tires are also used for heavy equipment, such as backhoes, which are used to demolish buildings. These tires are composed of closed-cell polyurethane foam, which is also used to make bicycle and wheelchair tires. The main advantage of these tires is that these tires are not susceptible to punctures.
“Companies such as MICHELIN developed a tire called Tweel, which did not have the conventional wheel hub assembly. Tweel has a solid inner hub, which is mounted on the axle, which is then surrounded by polyurethane spokes arrayed in a pattern of wedges. The shear band, which is stretched across the spokes, forms the outer edge of the tire. This shear band helps to replace the air pressure compared to the traditional tires, which are supported through the tension of the spokes. The tread of the tire is then attached to the shear band for creating smoother traction when in contact,” says a senior market research analyst at Technavio.
