The Truck and Bus segment, which is a major segment in terms of capacity, is witnessing a steady increase in the proportion of radial tires being adopted. In addition, as a result of the development of road infrastructure worldwide and the increasing importance of fuel-efficient products in the Global Automobile market, the proportion of radial tires in various segments of the Global Commercial Vehicle Tire market is anticipated to increase rapidly. Further, the Global Commercial Vehicle Tire market is witnessing the increasing adoption of tubeless tires in all vehicle segments. The demand for radial and tubeless tires will boost the growth of the Global Commercial Vehicle Tire market.''
