Key Findings of Study

Growth of Ecommerce and Logistics Industries Fuel Forklift Tire Market Exponential growth of the e-commerce sector in the last decade, has offered lucrative opportunities for the logistics industry to expand operations. Increase in switch to online shopping for convenience is attracting logistics companies to expand their operations and focus on single warehouse locations instead of multiple storage centers to cater to the one-day delivery preference of consumers.

Freight companies are also integrating modern technology into their fleet, resulting in increase in number of forklift trucks for operations. This fuels market demand for forklift tires.

Expansion of Shipping Industry Boosts Demand – Economic and mechanical advantages are boosting the demand for shipping container forklifts at ports. Port forklifts are easy to maneuver in confined spaces of a ship. Hence they are useful for moving freight inside the vessel. Additionally, big tires of port forklifts are anti-skid, which is necessary for moving freight in inclement weather. This, in turn, boosts the market size of forklift tires.

Multidimensional Benefits of Pneumatic Tires Fueling Market – Based on tire type, the pneumatic tires segment held leading share of the global market in 2021. Pneumatic tires offer multidimensional benefits, such as shock absorption ability and improved resilience, which minimizes wear and tear during operation, and thus ensure high performance and longevity of forklift tires.

The compressed air provides a cushioning effect to pneumatic tires. Demand for industrial equipment tires is likely to increase consistently, as they offer a much smoother ride, reduced risk of accidents, and less fatigue in rough terrain conditions.

Demand for Class 5: Internal Combustion Engine Trucks Due to All-weather Compatibility Drives Segment In terms of class, the class 5: internal combustion engine trucks segment held the leading market share in 2021. Growth of the segment is ascribed to their suitability for any weather conditions, indoors as well as outdoors, and their higher load-bearing capacity in comparison to any other forklift truck. The cost of these trucks, which is nearly 15% less than electric forklifts, and faster refueling, which takes only 5 minutes, are some of the key attributes of class 5: internal combustion engine trucks.
