    What is an aircraft tire?

    An aircraft tire is a specialized rubber tire designed to support the weight of an aircraft during landing, takeoff, and taxiing. These tires are engineered to withstand high loads, speeds, and pressures encountered during flight operations. Their key role is to ensure the safety and stability of flights, absorb the impact of landings, and provide sufficient grip for ground maneuverability.


    The COVID-19 outbreak has brought forth several unprecedented challenges before aircraft and airline companies with thousands of planes grounded around the world, devastating their profits and balance sheets, and sending them at least a decade back. Tires, one of the most pivotal parts of an aircraft, endured a heavy decline of over 40% in demand in the year 2020.

    The aerospace industry had already started marching toward the path of recovery. However, the emergence of new COVID-19 variants affected its growth trajectories and delayed the overall recovery period.

    It is still uncertain when the commercial aerospace industry will hit its peak level in 2018. However, the entire industry stakeholders are highly resilient and have been accustomed to such fatal market environments. It is anticipated that the commercial aerospace industry stakeholders will emerge again and create gargantuan opportunities before market stakeholders.

    Market Dynamics

    Aircraft tires are difficult to design since they must avoid bursting, to prevent damage to the aircraft. Maintaining stability, carrying huge weight at fast speeds, and giving effective braking capabilities are significant expectations from aircraft tires. As an aircraft's weight increases, the number of tires required grows as the weight must be spread more evenly.

    Aircraft tires are designed to carry heavy weights for short periods. Increasing air passenger traffic over the past two eons paired with frequent take-offs & landings make the tire a more important and indispensable focus area of the entire aerospace community.

    Segments Analysis

    By Tire Type

    Based on the tire type, the market is segmented into radial tire and bias tire. A radial tire is expected to remain the dominant as well as the faster-growing tire type in the market during the forecast period. The demand for radial tires is driven by continuous innovations targeting a reduction in weight, increased durability, and mobility. These aspects enable companies to improve fuel efficiency, tire life, and passenger comfort, resulting in higher usage of radial tires in the industry.

    By Aircraft Type

    Based on the aircraft type, the market is segmented as commercial aircraft, regional aircraft, military aircraft, helicopters, and general aviation. During the projection period, commercial aircraft will continue to lead the market.

    An expected recovery in air passenger traffic is likely to imprint a positive impact across the supply chain including the demand for tires. An expected rise in flying activity paired with higher wear and tear of tires is likely to drive the demand for tires at the aftermarket level. Continuous rise in military aircraft production is further estimated to drive the demand for tires in the years to come.

    By End-User Type

    Based on the end-user type, the market is segmented as OE and aftermarket. Aftermarket is expected to remain the dominant segment of the market during the forecast period. The long service life of an aircraft requires a large number of tires throughout its lifetime. Aircraft tires are subjected to operation in extreme temperatures and pressure.

    Tires continuously degrade during take-off and landings. Take-off is the most common cause of wear & tear of tires as the aircraft is fully loaded with fuel, passengers, and luggage. Tires are already pre-heated by taxiing on the runway, making take-off more crucial leading to the wearing of tires, creating a greater demand for tires.

    Regional Insights

    In terms of regions, Asia-Pacific is expected to remain the largest market for aircraft tires during the forecast period. Major countries in the region (China, India, Japan, Singapore, and South Korea) have a large fleet of aircraft in order to meet the large passenger traffic. Furthermore, these countries also generate a sustained demand for new aircraft to address the incessant rise in passenger traffic. North America and Europe are other markets and are likely to generate a sizeable demand for tires in the years to come.
