North America Tire Recycling Market Overview

The landscape is changing, and North America Tire Recycling is at the forefront of a groundbreaking conservation industry. Research indicates that the waste collected and recycled more than 33.00% of the nation’s scrap tires, transforming more than 150 million tires into raw materials for smart, useful products that improve people’s lives. It is done because committed to a greener planet. Nearly 300 million scrap tires are generated annually—scrap tires can become a breeding ground for disease-carrying mosquitos and other vermin. Properly reclaiming and recycling these tires into reusable raw materials protects the environment and public health. In the United States, in particular, over 279.00 million discarded tires are being added to an estimated 2 billion tires currently stockpiled around the country.  The turnover in U.S. scrap tire consumption in 1990, 11.00 percent of the annually generated scrap tires were consumed in the beneficial end-user market. Around USD 249.40 billion scrap tires were generated in the US in 2017. By 2017, the end-use markets consumed 81.40 percent of scrap tires generated in the U.S. The top market segments for scrap tires are tire-derived fuel, ground rubber and civil engineering applications. The need to expand all economically viable and environmentally sound scrap tire markets remains imperative. North America accounts for nearly 31.00% revenue share of the global tire recycling market. Huge implementation of tire recycling in the US is supporting the growth of business in the North American region. About 16.00% of the scrap tire generation was still landfilled in 2017. Old tires provide shelter for rodents and can trap water, providing a breeding ground for mosquitoes. In landfills, tires consume up to 75.00 percent of airspace.

Trends, Drivers & Challenges to Market Growth

  • The stockpiled tires provide breeding sites for mosquitoes which can spread diseases and often constitute fire hazards. The utilization of discarded tires would minimize environmental impact and maximize the conservation of natural resources. Current practice includes retreading, recycling as crumb rubber, and combustion for thermal energy.
  • Among the major causes of inefficiencies related to waste are biased tax policies and regulations, which comprise indirect subsidization of virgin materials. Heavier taxation of virgin materials and less taxation of labor contribute to changes in relative factor prices which better reflect the social value of the resources, without increasing the overall costs. 
  • Rubberized asphalt is a high-performance alternative to traditional paving material. It is a mix of asphalt and recycled rubber derived from scrap tires; crumb rubber can comprise 15.00%-22.00% of the mix in rubberized asphalt for highway construction. In use for more than 40 years, rubberized asphalt is laid using the same equipment as traditional asphalt in most cases. Rubberized asphalt highways have been proven to reduce tire noise by upwards of 5 decibels for a quieter ride. Their improved resistance to cracking and rutting reduces long-term maintenance costs. Plus, recycled rubber derived from scrap tires provides a reliable and consistent supply of paving material.
  • Crumb rubber adds impact-absorbing cushioning on a variety of playing and sports surfaces, including football fields, running tracks, and playgrounds. Surfaces incorporating crumb rubber infill dry quickly, drain excess moisture, reduce dust and mud, and minimize freezing. Crumb from used tires has been used in artificial turf fields for over a decade, and even longer in playgrounds and tracks. The EPA does not consider scrap tires as hazardous waste and approves the use of crumb from recycled tires for athletic fields. Tire recycling and green initiatives are innovative fields with continuous advancements. 

Market Opportunities

Tire Derived fuel: scrap tires provide a cleaner, more economical fuel alternative to coal in cement kiln, pulp and paper mills and electricity utility boilers. Tire derived fuel generate more heat than a comparable weight of coal but has a lower greenhouse has impact since tires are partly made from a natural rubber derived from trees. The Tire derived fuel market used 106 million tires in 2017over 43 percent of total annual scrap tire generation and it will grow with improvements in Tire derived quality and reliable delivery.

  • Latest technological Development such as DE vulcanization
  • Tire Recycling and Green Initiatives Are Innovative Fields with Continuous Advancements


  • Finding Efficient Collection Methods and Producing the Products
  • Carefully Planned and Sufficient Financial Capital
  • Transportation Issues of Used Tires from Rural Areas owing to Truck Driver Shortage
  • Commercial Viability for Pyrolysis Processing

The Massachusetts-based Product Stewardship Institute is working on creative ways to recycle tires. Scott Cassel, PSI's CEO, said that 36 states now collect fees to recycle tires, and Canada also has a program. Scrap tire markets remain regional in nature. Scrap tire markets remain strong in the mid-Atlantic region is gaining strength. Market demand in the Southeast remains high fueled by expanding TDF and ground rubber markets. The demand for tire-derived products in the Midwest and Upper Midwest, combined with expanding markets in the Eastern Plains states now creates a virtual sold-out condition in an area of the country that stretches from Texas to Minnesota and eastwards. Consequently, the demand for scrap tires equals or exceeds the supply of scrap tires exist in approximately three-fifths of the country. In the Western portion of the country, markets still remained challenged by geography and population – large expanses of land separate population centers, thus complicating transportation of scrap tires to available potential markets. Over the last two years, end-use markets expanded, dramatically increasing demand for tire-derived materials in the Pacific Northwest and the Rocky Mountain regions. This trend has caused scrap tires to be transported from states with limited or no markets to states that have newly developed markets (e.g., California and Utah). Several of the Mountain states still remain without viable markets but ample landfill capacity. Two of the major markets for scrap tires in the U.S. – Tire Derived Fuel and ground rubber applications – are expected to expand in the 2008 – 2010 timeframe. Scrap tires in stockpiles have been reduced by over 87 percent since 1990. However, challenges remain. Several states still lack effective state scrap tire management programs. Some states with comprehensive programs are facing the loss of scrap tire funds, due to state budget shortfalls during the economic downturn. RMA will continue to work toward expanding markets and achieving effective regulatory programs in realization of its commitment to shared responsibility.

In the West, Washington, Oregon, California and Arizona generally have good-to-strong demand for scrap tires, but the ability to landfill tires combined with limited market opportunities causes a considerable number of tires to be land disposed of. While industrial rubber products are used by virtually all industries, the dominant market is automotive (for example, hoses, belts, gaskets, weather stripping, glass encapsulation, air dams and deflectors, and door, window and closure seals). Other important markets include conveyor belts for mining and forestry operations, roll flooring, and consumer products. All natural rubber used in Canada is imported; it can be extracted from a variety of vegetation, but the most significant source is the rubber tree .Synthetic rubbers are produced chemically from petrochemical feedstock. Lanxess is the sole Canadian-based manufacturer of synthetic rubber. The principal synthetic rubbers include styrene-butadiene, butyl, nitrile, isoprene, chloroprene, urethane, polysulfide, silicone and ethylene propylene diene terpolymer (EPDM).

  • Tire Derived Fuel: scrap tires provide a cleaner, more economical fuel alternative to coal in cement kiln, pulp and paper mills and electricity utility boilers. Tire derived fuel generate more heat than a comparable weight of coal but has a lower greenhouse has an impact since tires are partly made from a natural rubber derived from trees. The Tire derived fuel market used 106 million tires in 2017 over 43 percent of total annual scrap tire generation and it will grow with improvements in Tire derived quality and reliable delivery.
  • Ground Rubber Applications: Ground rubber is produced by grinding scrap tires into different-sized pieces. Metal and fabric can be removed and the granules are sized for specific applications. Among its uses: new rubber products, landscaping, mulch, rubber mats, and rubber modified asphalt (results in quieter and more durable roads).In 2017, the ground rubber market consumed over 25 percent of the nation’s scrap tires(62 million of them ) with playground , landscaping, mulch, and molded and extruded products as the most dynamic segments.
  • Civil Engineering: Tires shreds are increasingly used instead of raw materials for roads and landfill construction, septic tank leach fields, alternative daily cover for landfills and many other construction appliactions.The benefits include vibration and sound control as well as light-weight fills to prevent erosion and landslides. Tires also facilitate drainage in septic, leach gate and landfill gas systems. The engineering market consumed over 19 million tires in 2017 about 7.90 percent of the total. Smaller markets take on about 7.40 percent of scrap tires. These include tires used for: electric arc furnaces, land reclamation projects, exports of tire derived fuel, products punched, pressed or stamped from scrap tires. Legal landfills consume almost all the remaining tires.

North America Tire Recycling Market: Sales Distribution Data

With respect to the auto dealership channel, which has grown 120.00% since 2000 and grew 22.00% last year, independent tire dealers continue to dominate tire distribution at the retail and wholesale levels. In 2008, they commanded 60.00% of the domestic retail passenger tire market or 118.8 million tires. Thirty years ago, tire dealers represented 45.00% of the market. When we take wholesaling into account, independent tire dealers have an even greater share, because they are the main suppliers to franchised auto dealers and service stations. Auto dealerships, 5.50% No tire distribution channel has grown faster in the last eight years than the auto dealerships. Car dealers sold 11.00 million replacement passenger tire units in 2008, the majority of those supplied by Dealer Tire LLC. But the channel’s growth may be affected more by the recession than any other channel. Coinciding with the decrease in vehicle production and sales was the decrease in franchised car dealerships. At the start of 2008, there were 20,700 new car dealerships in the U.S. NADA estimates there were between 19,700 and 19,900 dealerships left standing entering the New Year. It also projects a net decline of 900 more dealerships in 2009. However, the drop in dealerships is misleading, according to NADA, because not all dealerships are created equal. Ford sells tires not only at its dealerships but also through its Quick Lane Tire & Auto Center network of close to 500 stores. The outlets sell Original Equipment brands such as Goodyear, Continental and Michelin. Other distribution trends Nokian Tyres plc has been adding stores very aggressively in the last two years.
