Demand Analysis of Automotive Brake Components (2017-2021) Vs. Market Outlook (2022-2032)

Advancements in braking systems along with non-uniformity in road infrastructure is likely to influence the automotive brake components market over the coming years. Demand for efficient automotive brake components such as brake liners, brake shoes, brake pads, and brake calipers is growing owing to rising need for the active and passive safety of automobiles.

Rules by regulatory bodies are likely to drive adoption of advanced brake systems over the coming years.

  • For instance, the United States Department of Transportation (DOT) and National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) have mandated the use of automatic emergency braking, offering dynamic braking, thereby pushing demand for efficient automotive brake components.

Fact.MR projects the automotive brake components market to witness 4.2% CAGR during 2022 and 2032 in comparison to 2.8% CAGR from 2017 and 2021.

What’s Driving High Need for Automotive Braking Systems?

“Periodic Changes Reduced by Frictionless Braking to Support Market Growth”

The gradual shift towards electric and hybrid vehicles is likely to impact the braking technology that is used in cars and light trucks. Automotive brake component manufacturers are developing products compatible with these braking systems.

Trends include autonomous driving, electrification, light weighting, and new mobility. This is estimated to support market demand by 1.2X during the forecast years of 2022-2032.

Moreover, the periodic changing of automotive brake components can be reduced with the help of frictionless braking technology. This is a potential breakthrough among OEMs.

As such, all the above factors are estimated to support demand growth by around 20% of current levels over the assessment period.

“Anodizing Brake Calipers Enhancing Functionality”

Escalating preference for aluminium automotive brake components is likely to provide additional demand for brake calipers in disc brake systems. Anodizing brake calipers are anodized for their use in high-quality vehicles. This trend of anodizing brake calipers is estimated to provide a gain of 210 BPS to the automotive brake components market.

The anodizing treatment not only provides enhanced corrosion protection but also improves appearance and wear resistance. In addition, the coloring of anodized brake calipers with paints provides for increased weather resistance.

This is estimated to support drive growth by 1.3X during the forecast years.

“New Labelling Initiative to Alleviate Threats Posed by Forged Products”

Prevalence of forged products in the automotive industry calls for labelling standards and regulations of replacing automotive brake components as original brake components, ensuring vehicle safety.

This demands the application of ECE R90 vehicle regulations, which contain several revised mandates for performance, specific designs, and construction requirements across the EU, Africa, and Asia Pacific, for the labelling of automotive brake components.

These labelling initiatives for automotive brake components ensure the same performances that is in the tolerance limits of original vehicles. This is expected to offset the impact of forged products on the market for automotive brake components, thereby supporting market growth.

This aspect is estimated to drive market growth by around 25% through 2032.
