Winter Tire Market in Germany 2015-2019

About Winter Tires

Winter tires, also referred to as snow tires, cold weather tires, and thermal tires, improve the road safety for vehicles during winter, and thus play an important role in reducing road accidents. These tires are made of soft rubber compared to the all-season or summer tires, which help achieve better grip during winters. Furthermore, the newer generation of winter tires is designed with a more flexible rubber compound that is less prone to stiffening in colder temperatures. Its tread is designed to provide improved traction on wet, slushy, snowy, icy, and dry cold surfaces. Winter tires are fitted in sets of four, because fitting only a pair affects the balance and stability of the automobile. Winter tires are of three types: performance, studded, and non-studded.

TechNavio's analysts forecast the Winter Tire market in Germany to grow at a CAGR of 1.66 percent over the period 2014-2019.
