Varying regulations by country and states creates a major hurdle for market players
Most states in the U.S. has varying regulations for the utilization of these tire enhancements. There are some states such as Florida, Hawaii, New Hampshire, Washington, D.C., and Vermont who has no restrictions on their use. Some countries such as France, Germany, Hungary, and the Netherlands have prohibited the usage of studded tires. Some countries have regulations permitting their use only during certain months of the year. This is expected to be a major growth barrier for the industry. Usage of metal studded enhancements causes substantial damage to the roads as well as vehicles. This dissuades consumers for opting for these. Speed limitations and excessive efforts to tow the vehicle in case of breakdown are some other challenges that may hinder the industry growth prospects.
