There has been a significant increase in vehicle production over the years. However, in 2020, factors like COVID-19, regional disparities, weakness in economy, and lagging vaccination timetables, particularly in poor countries, resulted in the decline in global vehicle production. However, a strong rebound in global vehicle production with the recovery of major industries across the globe since the middle of last year has helped soften the impact of the pandemic for automotive industry. The global economic recovery is also expected to be fueled by the higher production of vaccines and vaccination rates, allowing businesses to reopen more quickly.

The increasing demand for new infrastructure is expected to drive the demand for construction machinery and thereby OTR tires across the globe. The construction and mining equipment industry has witnessed substantial growth in emerging economies such as China and India. Rapid infrastructural development and revised government norms related to construction activities in these countries are driving the construction and mining equipment market and thus the OTR tires market. With the growing population, the demand for food and agricultural products has increased, and this has generated the need for farm mechanization. The demand for agricultural tractors used for different agricultural activities has increased during recent years. High labor costs led the industry to shift towards industrial automation. These factors drive the demand for OTR tires for various applications.

“OTR tires for Container Handlers is expected to lead the industrial equipment segment due to the higher demand in material handling applications.”
The OTR tires for container handlers is estimated to lead the market, in terms of value, during the forecast period due to the higher demand of industrial equipments. The increasing industrialization and setting up of warehouses to support the hub and spoke model for various sectors are expected to drive the growth of industrial equipment, thereby driving the OTR tires market. Manufacturers are investing in R&D to develop technologically advanced industrial vehicles that are innovative, efficient, and cost-effective. Container handlers are used for handling intermodal cargo containers in small terminals or medium-sized ports and warehouses. The demand for these vehicles is expected to grow in emerging economies such as China and India, where new infrastructure projects are being launched.

Asia Pacific is projected to be the highest growing regional market
China, Japan, India, and Indonesia are included under Asia Pacific for market analysis. Infrastructural activities are projected to grow as they form a critical part of improving connectivity and promoting sustainable growth. Population growth and migration to major cities in the past decade further increased the demand for residential buildings. According to the Asian Development Bank, countries in Asia Pacific will have to invest USD 1.7 trillion per year up to 2030 for infrastructural development, which will cater to the requirements of infrastructural development. These factors are expected to drive the demand for construction equipment and will positively impact the demand for OTR tires. Asia Pacific is estimated to have the largest market for OTR tires in 2021.
