The global electric vehicle (EV) tires market size was valued at US$ 40 billion in 2021 and it is projected to be worth around US$ 161.6 billion by 2030, poised to grow at a CAGR 16.78% during the forecast period 2022 to 2030.
A huge preference has been shown towards artificial intelligence in place of the manual operated machines. The market is currently driven mainly by the increasing demand for automated vehicles having advanced safety features with easy to use interface. The launching of the 5G network has also proved to be a boon for the current market, owing to which the electric vehicle tires market showed a tremendous growth during the forecast period. Modern technology clubbed with upgraded version of designs and looks have attracted the market towards the use of advanced equipments. The modern techniques used to design the electric vehicle tires have made them lighter in weight which provide a better economy on road as compared to its rivals. Increased torque which is required to move a vehicle from halt has also affected the market to a great extent. This leads to greater use of energy in the initial phase of a drive with these vehicles. This affect on the initial phase affects the total average provided by the machine. The wall size has also been altered for these tires which show its significant impact on the vehicle's performance.
The growing concentration over the performance of the tires with respect to the number of years it can serve on road, the maintenance factors included during usage of the products, the safety features provided by the tires on road and the technological advancements made for the longer life of the tires have encouraged the leading market players to develop better products overtime. The electric vehicles usually requires better and advanced tires as compared to the internal combustion vehicles pertaining to the increased body weight of the vehicle as a whole along with the batteries which in turn makes a huge impact on the total resistance it presents during the initial motion of the vehicle from a state of rest.
The higher torque which is required during this initial motion of the vehicle from a state of rest is provided by these specialized electric vehicle tires. The noise production of the normal tires also varies as compared to the electric vehicle tires, which is relatively more in the former than the latter which is masked by the humming of the internal combustion engine of the vehicle. This noise is relatively lower for the electric vehicle and moreover the cabin of the electric vehicle is much quieter than its counterparts.
The outbreak of the covid-19 pandemic had disrupted the manufacturing process of the electric vehicle tires pertaining to the reduced transportation facilities available. The strict lockdowns imposed by the various governments had hampered the growth rate of the electric vehicle tires market. Hampered transportation facilities and services had created a shortage of the raw materials that are required for the manufacturing of the electric vehicle tires. Moreover the demand and supply chain of the tires had been disrupted to a great extent. Delay in the supply of the desired products had led to cancellation of huge orders which hampered the total revenue return of the industries. However substitutes were not a second choice as maintaining the quality for the new launching market was essential.

The increased use of batteries instead of using combustible fuel options has boosted the eco-friendly market tremendously. These tires give out less noise as compared to the normal ones due to which unnecessary noise pollution is avoided. On the other hand due to lesser noise provided by the engine the cabin of the vehicle is relatively quieter than its rivals, which in turn gives in the noise of the tires into the chamber. Reduced carbon emissions by the vehicles makes its a primary choice for the market and has become the need for the hour. Better wet grip is provided by the electric vehicle tires which provide a low rolling resistance to the vehicles thus making it easier for the entire body of the vehicle to fall into motion. This low rolling resistance also reduces the braking time of the vehicle and reduces the distance covered when urgent brakes are pressed on. Hence increasing the safety levels for the people outside the vehicle as well as inside.
The heavy weight of the batteries makes the overall vehicle quiet heavy and thus reduces its economy. The development in the batteries sector will positively impact the sales of the electric vehicle tires market. The increased weight of the overall vehicle in turn gives better rigidity and sturdiness on the road during the drive. The cruise measurements can be more accurate pertaining to the quieter rides as a result of the advanced tires technology and reduced noise inside the cabin of the electric vehicle. The reduced rolling resistance has reduced the use of energy for the initial motion of the body of the vehicle from a stationary position which results in saving of energy for further use on the road, thus improving the overall economy of the electric vehicle. A higher range of distance can be spanned with a single battery which is fully charged. Increase in the number of batteries increases the total weight of the vehicle which can show its impact on the average economy of the vehicle.
The electric vehicle tires give a smoother experience to the consumer during a drive which also has a lesser impact on the road. These factors help the electric vehicle tires to propel it's growth during the forecast period. The lower maintenance cost of the vehicle as a whole also helps to drive the market towards the use of electric vehicles. This will in turn facilitate the use of electric vehicle tires which form a perfect match with the advanced technologies used in the functioning of the vehicle on road. Replacement of the old batteries makes it easier for the consumer to deal with breakdowns and does not impose a great expenditure on the user of the vehicle. On the other hand breakdown of an internal combustion engine is hard to deal with. Lower servicing cost of the electric vehicle also creates a parallel attraction for the tire market during the forecast period. This helps the people to keep aside a larger share of their disposable income for future use.
