Based on design, the European automotive tire market has been categorized into radial and bias tires. Between the two, the radial tires category held larger market share, in terms of sales volume, in 2018. The category is expected to continue dominating the market during the forecast period as well. This is due to the fact that radial tires are more long-lasting than bias tires due to their construction, which comprises perpendicular polyester plies and crisscrossed steel belts. Additionally, these tires are largely used in passenger cars as they provide a smoother riding experience than bias tires. These collectively contribute to the growth in demand for radial tires in the market.
