WASHINGTON — Tire, auto and labor interests reacted hopefully but cautiously to two major trade moves made recently by President Trump.
First, on Nov. 30, Mr. Trump joined Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and outgoing Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto in signing the U.S.-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA), which is designed to replace the North America Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA).
Second, on Dec. 1, the White House announced that the U.S. and China would suspend new tariffs for 90 days while they held new talks over a possible trade agreement.
Also, the Trump administration will postpone the Jan. 1 start date for 25-percent tariffs on some $200 billion worth of Chinese goods, including tires, rubber chemicals, manufactured rubber goods and synthetic and natural rubber.
NIAGARA FALLS, Ontario — The Tire Industry Project (TIP) — a collaborative effort involving 11 tire industry CEOs to identify and address the potential human health and environmental impacts of tires throughout their life cycle — is well on its way to meeting its objectives.
This was the message of Kimm Jarden, a principal sustainability specialist at Goodyear, in her presentation at the 2018 Rubber Recycling Symposium in Niagara Falls Nov. 7-8.
Goodyear, Bridgestone Corp. and Group Michelin are co-chairs of the TIP, which was founded in 2005 under the aegis of Geneva, Switzerland-based World Business Council for Sustainable Development, Ms. Jarden said.
TRAC’s 2018 Canadian Consumer Winter Tire Study shows that 80 per cent of winter tire owners believe driving a vehicle equipped with winter tires has saved them from being involved in a potentially hazardous driving situation such as loss of control or a collision. The Study also found that 76 per cent of Canadian motorists now use winter tires.

NIAGARA FALLS, Ontario—Economic development, social development and environmental protection are all key elements of sustainability for the U.S. Tire Manufacturers Association.
North West Rubber Ltd. (NWR) and Moose Creek Tire Recycling Inc. (MCTR) a Subsidiary of Animat Inc. are pleased to announce their acquisition of the assets of Nexxsource Recycling (and all related companies). The new company will operate under the name Evolve Recycling Inc. (Evolve), and will also include Trillium MC Inc., MCTR’s tire hauling subsidiary. Evolve is headquartered at 300 Henry Street, Brantford, Ontario.
Evolve is the largest transporter and processor of end-of-life tires in Canada, with operations spanning Manitoba and Ontario. Evolve processes these tires into valuable end-products, helping Ontario Producers comply with the Regulations made under the Resource Recovery and Circular Economy Act, 2016, while satisfying the product demands of their customers.
Rising incomes in emerging markets have led to the rapid growth of motorcycle ownership, particularly in Asia, resulting in a strong increase in motorcycle tire sales. Growth is being driven by the increasing number of households in industrializing regions that are now able to afford motorcycles.
Motorcycle tire market demand is estimated to rise to $19.4 billion in 2023, representing an annual compound growth of 6.5% from $14.2 billion in 2018, according to Smithers Rapra data.
In the report The Future of Motorcycle Tires to 2023, Smithers Rapra attributes growth to rising living standards, urbanization and mobility improvements, demographics, and technological changes. Those with disposable income are showing growing interest in motorcycles, including electric and self-balancing models and other new technologies.
The highest growth is seen in the Asia-Pacific region, driven by China and India. Data shows that by 2023, Asia-Pacific’s region share will be over 16 million units. Japan-based multinational companies such as Honda, Kawasaki, Suzuki and Yamaha dominate the two-wheeler sector’s world market.
Trends in mobility
The evolution of mobility and transportation technologies, along with road conditions, play a role in customer preferences, driving patterns, tire wear, and ultimately motorcycle and tire design.
The role of motorcycle tires is complex, and they must satisfy performance and safety parameters depending on the application and type of motorcycle. There is extreme variation of motorcycle tire types depending on vehicle characteristics, intended driving surfaces, and tire construction.
Evolving tire construction
Developments in tire materials continue to include new compounds, as well as a greater range of compounds, to optimize the attributes most required by industry and to better target tires to applications, according to Smithers Rapra.
Among performance and safety attributes, grip remains the most important and is still being improved even as other attributes compete for attention. A trend towards a richer silica content is ongoing, owing to the importance of grip. Carbon black is also important, with the grades used in motorcycle tires similar to those used in ultra-high-performance and race car tires. Traditionally, all motorcycle tires were bias ply. A clear trend for motorcycles up to 400cc is the increased use of radial tires, especially seen in Asia and South America where they are equipped on more sporty motorcycles.
The impact of electrification
Electrification will initiate further tire evolution, as will the requirements of motorcycle connectivity and progressive automation, leading eventually to ‘smart’ tires. Tires will be expected to have sensors measuring and reporting pressure, temperature, grip, road surface conditions, and tire wear/condition.
Smithers Rapra market report The Future of Motorcycle Tires to 2023 offers in-depth analysis of the economic demand and growth of the global motorcycle tire market from 2018-2023, and cutting-edge technology developments in materials, components, design, and safety attributes.
