According to GlobalData’s company profile on Goodyear Tire & Rubber, Anti-skid tyre treads was a key innovation area identified from patents. Goodyear Tire & Rubber's grant share as of April 2024 was 76%. Grant share is based on the ratio of number of grants to total number of patents.

A recently granted patent (Publication Number: US11970618B2) discloses a vulcanizable rubber composition designed for tire components. The composition includes elastomers such as styrene-butadiene, polybutadiene, natural rubber, polyisoprene, or mixtures thereof. Additionally, the composition contains an olefin-maleic anhydride copolymer resin with specific characteristics, along with a processing additive to promote connections between functional groups for network formation.

The patent further details variations in the composition, such as the resin being derived from maleic anhydride or specifically a styrene-maleic anhydride (SMA) copolymer resin. The inclusion of zinc oxide as the processing additive and the simultaneous addition of resin and zinc oxide to the elastomers in a mix step are highlighted. Moreover, the composition may include reinforcement fillers, with specific mention of silica requiring a coupling agent. The elastomer ratios, functionalization of elastomers, and the application of the rubber composition in tire components, particularly treads, are also outlined in the patent claims.
