Based on rim size, the global market is divided into 12’’–17’’, 18’’–21’’, and >22’’. The 18’’–21’’ segment is expected to hold the largest share of the market. The 18’’–21’’ segment is expected to grow at a faster rate during the forecast period as these tires need a lower profile (or sidewall height) to maintain adequate clearance when they go over bumps and potholes, which makes the suspension fully compress and rebound.
Based on sales channel, the global market is divided into OEM and aftermarket. The aftermarket segment is expected to hold the larger share of the market share, and it is expected to grow at the faster rate during the forecast period. The aftermarket distribution channel here represents the tire replacements done annually across each country and region. Additionally, the increase in distributors, retailers, and online channel partners is expected to increase the share of aftermarket tires in the global market.
Based on vehicle type, the all weather tire market is segmented into passenger cars, LCV, and HCV. The passenger cars segment is predicted to dominate the global market during the forecast period.
