Dallas, Texas (PRWEB) April 05, 2014
Agricultural/farm tires are a sub-segment of specialty tires and are used for various farm vehicles such as tractors, combines, sprayers, trailers and harvesters. The year 2013 witnessed an increase in farm tire shipments in the US despite significant weather changes. The farm tire sales in 2013 were slow in the beginning of the year, but fourth quarter shipments benefited from late harvests and late planting. Due to reduction in prices of raw materials, especially rubber, revenue from farm tire sales were relatively flat in 2013 compared to previous years.
The US farm tire market has two segments, replacement (RT) and original equipment (OE) farm tires, and is further categorized into radial and bias types. The replacement segment accounts for the maximum share of the total US farm tire market. Although most of the farm tires are bias ply, but the trend is changing towards the usage of radial tires.
The demand for radial tires, which are found to be more beneficial in reducing compaction and handling heavy load, has far outstripped supply for last few years. A full range of new farm tires has been developed in conjunction with major agricultural machine manufacturers in response to the continuous evolution of farming techniques. In the coming years, the shipments are estimated to improve due to technological and design developments as well as an increase in overall GDP and industrial production index. Key issues affecting farm tire manufacturers include weather patterns, fluctuating commodity prices and high inventory levels.
