Automotive Brakes Market

Automotive Brakes Market

The main function of automotive brakes is to reduce vehicle speed and halt the vehicle. In recent years the development of smart braking systems has resulted in a decrease in the number of accidents. These new technologies enable the driver to control the speed of the vehicle more safely and efficiently without the vehicle skidding. Also, it has enabled better control of the vehicles at higher speed limits.

One of the biggest factors giving rise to the automotive brakes market is the rapidly growing automobile industry worldwide. More advanced and powerful engines have been developed to provide higher torque. This makes brakes an all-important component in controlling the vehicles thus increasing their market demand. Growing concerns over road traffic accidents and numbers of fatalities have affected important players in the market for automotive brake systems to incorporate solid safety characteristics in vehicle development. Also, stringent government regulations pertaining to vehicle safety in many regions are expected to augment the automotive brakes market. NHTSA (National Highway Traffic Safety Administration), an agency of U.S. DOT (Department of Transportation) plans on mandating the adoption of AEB (Automatic Emergency Braking) in vehicles from 2022.

Based on the type of brake, the automotive brakes market is segmented into disc and drum brakes. Among the two, the disc brake segment is expected to show high demand owing to its enhanced braking performance and their ability to function in adverse weather conditions without overheating or fading.

The passenger vehicle segment is expected to lead the automotive brakes market on the basis of vehicle type. The increasing demand for passenger vehicles worldwide is expected to be one of the major reasons for a prominent market share in the automotive brakes market. According to the International Organization of Motor Vehicle Manufacturers (OICA), the sale of passenger cars worldwide increased from 49650336 in 2009 to 70849466 in 2017 and is expected to increase further. Also, there has been increasing demand for braking systems in the aftermarket as these components are subjected to wear & tear after a particular period.

The Asia Pacific is expected to be the most prominent automotive brakes market during the forecast period. The Chinese automotive brakes market is one of the biggest in the world. The growing Chinese economy and rising disposable incomes of people in China have increased the demand for vehicles in the country. In addition, China's low cost of production has supported car manufacturing development in China. Moreover, the increasing number of accidents in India has led to an increase in safety features. To reduce the number of vehicle accidents in India, the Indian government has made it compulsory for all automobile companies to install anti-lock braking systems in their vehicles by April 2019. These developments are expected to boost the automotive brakes market in the Asia Pacific region.
