A new report from Smithers identifies the top 20 technologies – from new materials to smart driving concepts – that will transform the global tire industry across the next two decades.
The Future of Disruptive Technologies in the Tire Industry to 2040 is derived from an exclusive survey of technical experts, business leaders, and opinion formers in the global tire industry. Multiple potentially disruptive innovations were identified for tire design and raw materials; as well as key enabling technologies – such as improved sensor platforms and virtual design modelling – that the tire industry can leverage to meeting the future demands of OEMs, regulators, and drivers.
The top seven tire-specific disruptive technologies identified by Smithers’ in-depth survey are:
These will be refined and adopted over the next 20 years and Smithers’ scorecards for each of the 20 technologies profiled include detailed scores for their disruptive potential in 2020, 2030, and 2040. Analysis for this report tracks how these will meet the two core future demands for improved safety and improved sustainability, as new mobility concepts enter the market.
The tire industry is traditionally conservative, and this research is especially timely as the tire industry responds to an unprecedented downturn in H1 2020, and leading tire manufacturers reappraise their R&D priorities to return to profitability in a global economy radically reshaped by the Covid-19 pandemic.
To fully contextualize the evolution of the disruptive technologies and their route to market The Future of Disruptive Technologies in the Tire Industry to 2040 includes export forecast scenarios of how the tire industry will look in 2040, including consideration of key long-term trends.
These combine to give essential strategic insight for companies at every stage of the tire value chain, from raw material producers to tire manufacturers and OEMs.
The Future of Disruptive Technologies in the Tire Industry to 2040 is available for purchase now for $6,500 (£4,750, €5,250).
