·5-min read

The military rubber tracks market is expected to grow from US$ 143. 10 million in 2021 to US$ 239. 98 million by 2028; it is estimated to grow at a CAGR of 7. 7% during 2021-2028. The North America military rubber tracks market is further segmented into the US, Canada, and Mexico.

New York, April 21, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- announces the release of the report "Military Rubber Tracks Market Forecast to 2028 - COVID-19 Impact and Global Analysis By Type and End Use" -
In 2020, the US dominated the market in this region.

As per the World Bank collection of development indicators, obtained from officially recognized sources, military expenditure in the US reached ~3.74% of its GDP in 2020 from ~3.43% of GDP in 2019. As per the NPR—an independent non-profit media organization—all the planes, tanks, and ships of the US military burn ~340,000 barrels of oil every day. The need to make tracked vehicles more eco-friendly and comfortable, and safer for the person sitting inside drives the adoption of the latest high-tech rubber tracks. Most of the tracked military vehicles in the region use tracks with metal plates, which are associated with considerable inconvenience due to severe vibrations. According to Tank-Automotive and Armaments Command (TACOM), rubber tracks can improve the fuel economy by ~33.33%, considering all the aspects such as wear & tear, transaction, vibration, and durability. To replace the fielded steel track system on the Bradley Fighting Vehicle, the US Army explored the concept of segmented composite rubber tracks in 2019.

The military rubber tracks market is segmented on the basis of type, end use, and geography.Based on type, the military rubber tracks market is bifurcated into rubber pin track and rubber band track.
