Tire industry chasing the car "new four"
Driven by the "new four", the global automobile industry is changing at an unprecedented speed of innovation and development. This is an opportunity and a challenge for the tire industry. How to adapt to the rapidly changing automotive industry? How to seize the great opportunities brought about by the changes in the automotive industry? In China, the highland of the global automotive industry, innovation has become a trend in the tire industry that has been calm for many years, and the digital tires that are about to emerge are also rapidly keeping up with the rapid development of the automotive industry. In the context of the "new four modernization" of electrification, intelligence, networking and sharing, the century-old traditional automobile industry is accelerating its transformation. At the same time, the tire industry, which is attached to the automobile industry, is also changing rapidly to catch up with the pace of the times.
Tire Enterprise Anchoring Electric Vehicle Tire Technology
When the Chinese auto market enters a new era, tire companies are also working hard to develop special tires that meet the needs of the "new four. Recently, Michelin in the Chinese market officially launched a self repair tire. It is reported that the tire is sprayed with a specially formulated sealant on the inner inner liner of the tire. When the foreign body is stuck in, the foreign body is quickly wrapped under the action of the inner pressure of the tire, and most of the area of the shoulder area is covered, and the puncture with a diameter of not more than 6mm caused by sharp objects such as screws is repaired, thus effectively preventing the phenomenon of nail leakage. Many years ago, self-repairing tires only stayed at the conceptual level, and were not favored by the industry at that time. Nowadays, the rapid development of new energy vehicles, especially mid-to-high-end electric vehicles, provides a natural use scenario for this self-repair tire-in order to ensure endurance, vehicles cannot reduce battery modules in order to reduce weight. Self-repairing tires with a larger aspect ratio have become one of the best choices.
In the face of changes, the 150-year-old tire giant German Horse Brand has also repositioned its brand as a "high-end new energy vehicle original expert", and introduced a number of tires based on the demand of Chinese consumers for electric vehicle tires. New technology, including ContiSilent mute technology that can reduce the noise in the car by up to 9 decibels.
At present, the requirements of electric vehicles for tires are multi-dimensional. For example, high load puts forward higher requirements for braking performance. The endurance data is not only the battery capacity and three-electric efficiency, but also the lightweight body and low Rolling resistance tires and other details. Therefore, almost all large domestic tire companies, like multinational brands, have increased their investment in electric vehicle tires and achieved good market performance. On the evening of August 26, Linglong tire disclosed its 2021 semi-annual report. The financial report shows that from January to June this year, the company's new energy vehicle tire shipments increased by 385 year-on-year. At present, the tires produced by the company have been successfully matched with the main models of new energy vehicles such as Wuling Hongguang MINI, BYD Qin PULS, FAW Hongqi E-HS3, Renault Nissan Electric Vehicle, etc., building a new competitive advantage.
Linglong Tire said that as early as 2018, the company launched the first new energy vehicle special tire EV100, and in the second half of 2019, it developed new energy vehicle tires for PCR models and SUV models. In 2020, for the life pain point of new energy vehicles, the company has also developed a green ultra-low rolling resistance car tire POWERSAVER. Immediately afterwards, another local tire manufacturer, General Motors, also released its 2021 mid-year report on August 27. According to the report, due to seizing the outlet of the new energy vehicle tire market, the company sold 4.6992 million tires in the first half of the year, an increase of 61.27 percent over the same period last year. Among them, the first Qianlima CELIMO EV1 new energy green tire successfully developed this year has been specially improved and optimized for the characteristics of new energy vehicles. At present, the tire has been customized and flexible through the "black light workshop" of General Motors.
