Pune, India- As per this latest study by Fact.MR, a provider of market research and competitive intelligence, the global automotive tire molds market is expected to garner US$ 2.39 billion by 2033, expanding at a CAGR of 4.4% from 2023 to 2033. An instrument used to generate the form and shape of a tire is called a tire mold. Cast iron is frequently used for tire molds, which need to be able to endure the high pressures and temperatures involved in vulcanizing rubber. Rapid advancement of new technology will cause certain structural changes in the automotive sector in the near future. The manufacturing process will undergo a dramatic transformation due to the increased use of artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning, which will increase robotic uniformity, accuracy, and efficiency.
Manufacturers can offer appealing features and support revenue development due to level 2 automation, which includes active safety systems and driver assistance. For the technology to evolve and for consumers to embrace level 4 autonomous vehicles, however, additional delays are anticipated.
Manufacturers are utilizing green energy in their tire production operations as they work to become carbon-neutral by 2050. They are accomplishing this by making investments in green energy, energy-efficient equipment, and zero-carbon products. For instance, the Michelin Group declared in February 2021 that it was trying to have all of its tires completely sustainable by the year 2050. Michelin collaborated on this with several groups, including Axens, IFP Energies Nouvelles, Pyrowave, Carbios, Enviro, and BlackCycle.
