DUBLIN, Ireland, April 14, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --

The analysts forecast the Winter Tire market in Canada to grow at a CAGR of 3.16 percent over the period 2014-2018. One of the key factors contributing to this market growth is the improved safety delivered by winter tires. The Winter Tire market in Canada has also been witnessing the growing popularity of studdless tires. However, the cost incurred to manage two separate sets of tires could pose a challenge to the growth of this market. 

The report, the Winter Tire Market in Canada 2014-2018, has been prepared based on an in-depth market analysis with inputs from industry experts. The report covers the country Canada; it also covers the Winter Tire market in Canada landscape and its growth prospects in the coming years. The report also includes a discussion of the key vendors operating in this market. 

Studdless tires are increasing in popularity in the Winter Tire market in Canada. Studded winter tires, if used in seasons other than winter, tend to damage the roads and their increased use can also lead to potholes. The studdless tires, on the other hand, are much smoother on roads and do not cause any damage. Hence, studdless tires are gaining popularity across numerous provinces that are experiencing limited snowfall. 

According to the report, the main factor which is driving the Winter Tire market in Canada is the improved safety provided by these tires when used during winter. When roads are covered with snow and ice, they tend to be highly slippery. Hence, the use of winter tires provides immense grip/traction and helps reduce the number of road accidents. 

Further, the report states that the main challenge witnessed by the market is the affordability factor. Winter tires cost only a little more than standard summer/all-season tires but they can be used only in the winter and not throughout the year. Hence, people need to invest and have two sets of tires.

The study was conducted using an objective combination of primary and secondary information including inputs from key participants in the industry. The report contains a comprehensive market and vendor landscape in addition to a SWOT analysis of the key vendors.
