Global Tire Cord Market By Material (Steel Cord, Polyester, Nylon, Rayon, Aramid, Others), Tire Type (Radial Tire, Biased Tire), Application (Aerospace, Passenger Cars, Light Commercial Vehicles, Heavy Duty Vehicles, Two Wheelers, Tractors, Others) – Industry Trends and Forecast to 2029
Market Analysis and Size
Tire cord is essential for providing strong support to rubber tires. Tire cord provides support and aids in the preservation of the tire's shape. It absorbs the overall weight of a vehicle and provides elongation and absorption performance. Tire cords are substantial structural components of a tire.
Data Bridge Market Research analyses that the tire cord market was valued at USD 7.76 billion in 2021 and is expected to reach the value of USD 13.53 billion by 2029, at a CAGR of 7.20% during the forecast period of 2022 to 2029.
Tire cord is a type of fabric made from high-quality fabric yarn. It has high tensile strength, abrasion resistance, and controlled deformations. Steel polyester, nylon, and rayon chords are the most common types of tire cord. Tire chords are made using a variety of processes such as yarn twisting, dipping, and weaving. During on-road performance, tire cord provides impact resistance from extreme pressure, weight, and force.

Global Tire Cord Market Dynamics
- Growing demand from the automotive sector
For safe and secure travel, the automotive industry is heavily reliant on tires and tire products. This is expected to drive tire cord demand during the forecast period. Tire cords improve vehicle performance and fuel consumption by absorbing a greater amount of weight and pressure for a longer period of time. Tire cord is an important part of vehicle performance because it improves fuel efficiency. The global demand for fuel-efficient vehicles is expected to boost the global tire cords market. The rising popularity of electric vehicles, luxury and premium vehicles, and self-driving cars in the automotive industry is expected to boost the tire cord market during the forecast period.
- The growing emphasis on reducing greenhouse gas emissions
Tire cord fabrics are primarily used in the tire manufacturing process as a reinforcing material to provide controlled deformation, high strength, and abrasion resistance properties to the end product. These fabrics are also used in the manufacture of rubber hose, air springs, expansion joints, and conveyor belts, among other things. Growing emphasis on reducing greenhouse gas emissions, as well as rising demand for economical fuel-efficient vehicles, are some of the factors expected to drive market growth over the forecast period.
The increasing penetration of electric vehicles is expected to boost demand. Traditional tires on electric vehicles (EV) wear out about 30% faster than conventional tires. As a result, aramid fibres are being used by manufacturers to create extremely lightweight and wear-resistant tires for the electric vehicle industry. The nylon tire cord fabric is dominating the U.S. market. Widespread product utilisation in the production of lightweight, wear-resistant tires for passenger cars, SUVs, trucks, and aircraft is expected to be the primary factor driving growth in the coming years.
Fluctuating raw material prices, as well as increased competition among players, are expected to stymie the growth of the tire cord market during the forecast period. Over the forecast period, the preference for re-treading in the commercial vehicle segment is expected to have a negative impact on market growth.
