The global automotive brake systems market was valued at $20.8 billion in 2017 and is anticipated to grow at a CAGR of 6.2% during the forecast period.
Automotive braking system is a group of mechanical, electronic and hydraulically activated components, whose primary function is to halt the movement of a vehicle using friction. The different components of automotive brake systems include disc brakes, drum brakes, and brake fluid. Automotive brake systems can be categorized into mechanical brakes, hydraulic brakes, and air brakes among others. Mechanical brakes are used in hand brakes, which is connected to brakes at the rear of the vehicle through steel wire connections. Air brake system comprises air compressor, air reserve tank, check valves, and safety valves to transfer mechanical force to wheel ends through air pressure.
The significant growth in the global automotive industry, along with increasing production of motor vehicles drives the growth of the automotive brake systems market. Consumers are increasingly purchasing passenger vehicles worldwide owing to growing disposable incomes and improving living standards. Additionally, several safety regulations have been introduced by governments to improve road safety and reduce road accidents, thereby increasing the implementation of advanced brake systems. The implementation of advanced technologies for automotive brake systems, and increasing modernization of vehicles has accelerated the adoption of automotive brake systems. However, high costs associated with electronic brake systems, and counterfeit products hamper the market growth. The increasing use of brake-by-wire systems and regenerative brakes, technological advancements, and rising demand from emerging economies would provide numerous growth opportunities during the forecast period.
