Global Automotive Tire Socks Market 2017-2021

About Automotive Tire Socks

Tire socks are the next-generation traction products. Unlike tire chains, the grip is provided by a textile surface with no metal parts being used. They are lightweight and extremely quick and simple to install. As there is nothing to adjust, tire socks get automatically centered when the vehicle is in motion. Since there is no contact between the metal and the road, the socks provide a smoother drive without vibration or noise.

Technavio’s analysts forecast the global automotive tire socks market to grow at a CAGR of 6.66% during the period 2017-2021.

Press Release

Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Automotive Tire Socks Market 2017-2021

Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global automotive tire socks market: MICHELIN, Joubert Productions, AutoSock, ISSE SAFETY, and TireSocks.

Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: Weissenfels, Silknet, and Novotool.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “One trend in the market is providence of night vision reflectors in tire socks. Tire socks are used to improve the grip and traction of the tires on the road during winters. They are textile covers that can be easily installed on the tire. There are different sizes of socks to fit almost all types of cars, vans, truck, buses, etc. The grip is attained through friction along with specifically developed high-tech textiles.”

According to the report, one driver in the market is need for improved traction in cold weather. There is an increased need for tire socks in snowfall conditions as they help vehicles improve traction. Northern Canada, Russia, Scandinavia, and other Northern European countries experience heavy snowfall during winter. This results in roads being covered with several feet of snow. Driving in such conditions requires specific skills due to the loss of traction by vehicles. Skilled snow drivers have perfected the art of controlled skidding. The emergence of traction control and stability control in modern sports utility vehicles (SUVs) has resulted in much safer snow rides.

Further, the report states that one challenge in the market is wear and tear issues related to tire socks. The principle behind the working of tire socks is that snow or ice sticks to the fiber, which enhances the grip by soaking the layer between the tire and the road. The socks must be removed when the vehicle does not traverse through icy roads. Although they are a cheap alternative, durability is an issue. As the socks are made of fabric, they are subjected to wear at a quicker rate when the vehicle moves through lumpy ice or dry roads. Hence, care must be taken to increase the durability. The durability of the socks depends on the road the vehicle runs on and the way they are used.
