“The demand for agriculture equipment has increased owing to the increased adoption of modern farming techniques and use of genetically modified crops. With growing focus on increasing agricultural yield, farmers are using advanced agricultural equipment such as combines, sprayers grain harvesters, hay forage, tillers, cutters, and shredders among others. They are adopting modern equipment for agricultural activities, which is propelling the need for different types of tires with different specifications,” says Siddarth Jaiswal, Lead Analyst, Automotive, Technavio Research.

Rear tires play a significant role in farm equipment, especially in tractors, as these are larger than the front tires. These tractor tires have longer life span and are expensive compared to front tires and other farm equipment tires. With the improvement in farming equipment in terms of technology and size, agriculture tires have undergone significant technological advancements. For instance, the size of rear tires has increased significantly over the past couple of years, and the introduction of IF and VF technologies has raised the durability of rear tires.

The leading vendors in the global agriculture tires market include ATG Tires, BKT Tires, Bridgestone, Mitas, and Titan International. Investment in the production process and enhancing product portfolios are observed to be key for gaining competitive advantage in the agriculture tire market. Established players are expected to focus on efficient manufacturing processes to manage the cost of production better. Emerging players already have the low-cost advantage due to the placing of their production base in countries such as India and China, and this will further add pressure on established players to explore means to reduce the cost to attain competitiveness during the forecast period.
