Driving Factors

The commercial and military aircraft fleets of numerous countries are expanding. Commercial airline fleets, comprising narrow-body aircraft, wide-body aircraft, and regional transport aircraft, are expanding rapidly in several nations. This might be linked to the worldwide demand for air travel, particularly in the growing economies of Asia Pacific and the Middle East. According to Boeing, the growth rate of commercial fleets is predicted to be 3.1% between 2022 and 2040, while the growth rate of airline traffic is projected to be 4.0% during the same period. The commercial fleet in the Asia Pacific area is predicted to increase at the fastest rate, at 4.2%. In addition, the global aviation market has grown in air travel demand, which drives up the manufacture of new aircraft to fulfill expanding demand. This factor is projected to rapidly boost demand for airplane tires.


Restraining Factors

Commercial aviation depends on aircraft tires to provide safe landings and takeoffs. However, the manufacturing and upkeep of these tires can be costly. To ensure the manufacture of high-quality aircraft tires, the aviation sector must spend considerably on cutting-edge manufacturing facilities and technologies.


Market Segmentation

  • In 2022, the radial-ply tires segment is dominating the market with the largest market share over the forecast period.

Based on type, the global aircraft tires market is divided into radial-ply tires and bias-ply tires. Throughout all segments, the radial-ply tires segment has the biggest revenue share over the predicted period due to better technology and design developments in terms of lightweight and durability, improved traction and cut-resistance qualities, and overall higher fuel efficiency with lower carbon emissions. Because of these benefits, several airlines have switched to radial-ply tires rather than bias-ply tires. Although, bias-ply tires remain a popular choice in military aircraft due to their hard casing and longevity.


  • In 2022, the commercial aviation segment is influencing the largest market share over the forecast period.

Based on the aircraft type, the global aircraft tires market is segmented into commercial aviation, military aviation, business, and general aviation. Among these segments, the commercial aviation segment is dominating the market owing to major airline business expansion of current aircraft fleets with lightweight and durable tires for improved safety and fuel economy. The increase in local and international passenger traffic will have a significant impact on the aviation tire business. Also, the spread of low-cost aircraft carriers, along with the presence of multiple airlines, has increased the number of air passengers worldwide.


  • In 2022, the Fixed-wing segment is influencing the largest market share over the forecast period.

Based on the platform, the global aircraft tires market is classified into fixed-wing aircraft and rotary-wing aircraft. Among these segments, the Fixed-wing segment is dominating the market owing to an increase in international air travel and worldwide air passenger traffic is predicted to enhance demand for fixed-wing aircraft, driving the growth of the aircraft tires market. Fixed-wing aircraft can fly at high heights and across long distances without needing to refuel frequently. This element is critical in long-distance airplane operations.


  • In 2022, the OEM segment is dominating the largest market share over the forecast period.

Based on end users, the global aircraft tires market is classified into OEM and aftermarket. Among these segments, the OEM segment is leading the market due to an increase in demand for unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) in a variety of applications such as city monitoring, medication delivery, package delivery, and border surveillance, among others. Furthermore, the increase in composite product penetration and high prevalence around the world, to improve and optimize airplane operation with the assistance of numerous novel component designs, is projected to have a beneficial influence on sector market growth.
