Low Rolling Resistance Tire Market Analysis and Size
As per the data of International Energy Agency, average global fuel consumption of recently registered LDVs reached 7.2 liters of gasoline-equivalent per 100 km in 2017. Moreover, it has been recognized by the U.S. Department of Energy that adopting low roller resistance tires can yield approx. 5-15% of fuel economy. A 5 percent reduction in rolling resistance would increase fuel economy by around 1.5% for heavy and light-duty vehicles. Installing these tires can aid fleets in reducing fuel costs and ensure proper tire inflation. For instance, changing traditional dual tires with one wide-base tire can increase fuel proficiency by about 5 percent by reducing rolling resistance.

A low-rolling resistance tire is a type of tire which is mainly designed to make as little friction as possible between the road surface and rubber. This enables the tires to move more easily, which can improve the vehicles' performance and fuel economy. They are made up of special rubber compounds which help to reduce energy losses owing to friction between road surface and the tire, thereby improving efficiency of vehicle. Low-rolling resistance tires are used in trucks, cars, buses and other vehicles that require to travel long distances.
Low Rolling Resistance Tire Market Dynamics
- Increase in offering new products by major manufacturers
The major manufacturers of low rolling resistance tire majorly rely on offering new products equipped with the latest low rolling resistance gripping technology to expand their presence. For instance, Bridgestone Corporation delivers the ECOPIA low rolling resistance tire designs for light automobiles. Its eco-friendly design enables superior road performance, aiding higher safety and fuel efficiency. Moreover, ECOPIA also decreases the production of harmful emissions of carbon dioxide and allowing for reduced rolling resistance. Thus, increase in offering new products by major manufacturers is anticipated to drive the market growth rate during the forecast period.
- Increasing usage of Low rolling resistance tire in light commercial vehicle (LCV)

This joint research was accomplished by installing a power generating device inside the tire to harness the generated static electricity during rotation. Therefore, increasing product innovation will create numerous market growth opportunities during the forecast period.
- Multiple drawbacks associated with low rolling resistance tire
Certain structural limitations in the low rolling resistance tires may impede uptake to an extent. As a result of presence of less rubber, these tires have a considerably lesser grip, which could affect braking, mainly on wet roads. This may surge chances of skidding and consequently fatalities owing to accidents. Moreover, as technologies keep changing, manufacturers have to constantly upgrade their product, which often surges operational prices and hamper the market's growth.
