Snow Chain Market in the US 2015-2019

About Snow Chain Market in US

Snow Chains are nets made up of chains that are designed to be wrapped around tires to provide traction in adverse driving conditions. Both front-wheel drive as well as a rear-wheel drive vehicles require only one pair of snow chains attached to the car’s drive wheels. Innovative products with advanced features are being introduced into the Snow Chain market on an everyday basis. Examples include patented snow chains that are easy to install and provide immense traction and lateral control on snow-covered roads (at up to 25 mph). Custom-built chains are pricier than standard ones. They also cost about 40 percent to 50 percent more than a standard set of chains.

TechNavio's analysts forecast the Snow Chain market in the US to grow at a CAGR of 5.14 percent over the period 2014-2019.

Press Release

TechNavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Snow Chain Market in the US 2015-2019

TechNavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the Snow Chain Market in the US: Peerless Industrial Group, pewag Inc., RUD Chain Inc. and Thule Group.

Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: BABAC Tire Chains, Chainco, Laclede Chain Manufacturing Company, Michelin, Moose Utility Division, Spikes-Spider and Trygg.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from TechNavio’s team said: “The rapid pace of innovation in the Snow Chain Market in US is one of the major trends. Every day new products with advanced features are entering the market, which are expected to have a positive influence on the market growth.”

According to the report, the increase in demand for good quality chains is a key driver in the market. Nearly 90 percent of the tire chains offered in North America are manufactured in China. However, these do not stand up to the pressure of rough conditions and they snap and break.

Further, the report states that snow chains break prematurely for many reasons, which is a major challenge for the market. Low-carbon steel that has been case-hardened sometimes does not have the strength to withstand constant pressure and exposure in an adverse environment.
