Ultra High Performance Tire Market

Rapid expansion of the automotive sector is resulting increasing sales of sports cars, SUVs, and light trucks across the globe. These vehicles are expected to offer optimal performance in all weather conditions, which in turn is spurring demand for ultra-high performance tires.

Besides this, shifting consumer preference towards high performance automotive components backed by rising disposable income is creating lucrative growth prospects for UHP tires market players.

As per FMI’s regional analysis, the U.S. is anticipated to dominate the North America UHP tires market. Growth can be attributed to strong presence of key automotive players in the U.S., along with rapid adoption of new technologies to manufacture more efficient and durable tires. These trends will continue augmenting growth of the UHP tires in North America over the assessment period.

“Rising popularity of automotive racing sports such as Formula one, coupled with increasing replacement and repair of vehicle parts through aftermarket, will continue augmenting growth of the global UHP tires market through 2031,” says an FMI analyst.

Key Takeaways:

  • By tire type, all-season tires are expected to account for more than half of total UHP tires market share in 2021.
  • Sales of UHP tires in the sports car segment are anticipated to hold nearly 57% of the total UHP tires market share in 2021.  
  • The replacement/aftermarket segment is projected to account for more than three-quarter of the total UHP market share in 2031.
  • The U.S. is anticipated to hold a dominant share of 81.5% of the North America UHP tires market in 2021.
  • China will emerge as a lucrative market, creating an incremental opportunity of US$ 1 Bn in 2031.
  • Germany is projected to account for 17.9% of the Europe UHP tires market share in 2031.
  • Japan and South Korea will hold 43.5% and 26.0% of the global UHP tires market share respectively.

To gain a competitive edge in the market, players are focusing on research and development to launch new variants of UHP tires. Apart from this, players are investing in strategic collaborations, mergers and acquisitions to expand their global footprint. For instance:

It illustrates Michelin's commitment to designing tires that offer a very high level of performance throughout their life and right up to their end of life.
  • Yokohama Tire’s long, successful history with Porsche Motorsport North America (PMNA) continues. Yokohama and PMNA announced a new racing series and partnership with the United States Auto Club (USAC).
