Global Air Brake Reservoirs Market: Introduction
Air brake reservoir, also known as air storage tank, is a storage tank having single or more than double compartments that are primarily used for storage of compressed air. The function of the air brake reservoirs is to provide a compressed air for braking, which will be sufficient in relation to the volume used by the air brake chambers and auxiliary parts. Moreover, air brake reservoirs provide a space in which the heated air (by compression) may be cooled. Every air brake reservoirs is built in accordance with the SAE Standard Air Brake Reservoir Test Code and Inspection Procedure SAE J-10-a. Manufacturers operating in the air brake reservoirs market utilize steel sheet, with stamped heads and rolled shells to develop air brake reservoirs. Rail component manufacturers developing air brake reservoirs are among the key players likely to profit from prospected sales in freight cars and from numerous proposed contracts in other areas such as metros, regional trains, and high-speed trains.
Importantly, air brake reservoirs are predominantly used in railway applications. Thus, manufacturing of locomotives and rail transport play a crucial role in the growth of the global air brake reservoirs market. For the next few years, experts project a continued stable growth for the global air brake reservoirs market on the back of continued growth in the rail market.
Global Air Brake Reservoirs Market: Dynamics
Various standards are prevalent in the market to encourage the uniform product types across the value chain including the Association of American Railroads (AAR) standards and European Standards (ENs). Analysts predict that urban transport will demonstrate a high growth rate in the coming years. Development of existing and introduction of new technology platforms reinforce the global outlook for the air brake reservoirs market by provoking the demand for air brake reservoirs. Additionally, secular trends, such as urbanization, focus on safety, and awareness of environmental issues are driving investment in the global air brake reservoirs market.
The ongoing efforts to achieve the targets set at the UN climate conference will further enhance the role of railways in the foreseeable future. New-fangled technologies such as driverless trains are bringing extra safety, reliability, and capacity to the railways, aiding to make rail travel even more attractive and competitive with other transport modes. The increasing market adoption of air disc brakes for commercial vehicles translates into production growth for air brake reservoirs. Delays in rail project construction in some countries impede the demand for air brake reservoirs; however, offset by a positive outlook for the automotive industry in developing regions.
