With the evolution in automotive industry, brake system has also witnessed a significant change, not only in the automotive industry but also in off-highway vehicles, locomotives, and rolling stocks. One of the key aspects attributing to the evolution of these systems is the introduction of safety regulations, especially pertaining to stopping or braking distance. Increasing accidents and fatalities have prompted governments to enforce stringent safety regulations as well as reduced stopping distances.

This, in turn, has triggered the brake manufacturers to bring about technical advancements to meet these norms. In response to this, automotive brake manufacturers have introduced advanced braking system such as ABS, ESC, TCS, EBD, brake-by-wire, and regenerative braking among others. Brake manufacturers in the locomotive & rolling stock industry have come up with electro-pneumatic brakes or electronically controlled pneumatic brakes with several advantages over air brakes.

These advanced braking systems not only comply with safety regulations but also offer better braking performance. The future of automotive brake industry can be defined by two gen-next technologies: regenerative braking and brake-by-wire. The first technology helps in increasing fuel efficiency by re-using the energy generated during brake friction and the latter eliminates the necessity for all the mechanical components and linkages. Asia-Oceania is estimated to dominate brake system market for automotive, which is the largest vehicle manufacturing region.

Among the types of brakes, the disc brake segment is estimated to lead the market given its lightweight, quick response, and better performance. In the brake system market for locomotive & rolling stock, the electro-pneumatic brakes segment is estimated to account for a major market share, whereas electronically controlled pneumatic brake system segment is in the growing phase.

The automotive sector holds majority of the share in the automotive and transportation industry. The brake system market for automotive, by type, is projected to reach USD 29.4 billion by 2020. The disc brakes segment is estimated to account for the largest share in the brake system market for automotive. This growth can be attributed to better efficiency and performance offered by disc brakes, when compared to drum brakes. However, the drum brakes segment still dominates the commercial vehicle segment.

The electronically assisted brake (EAB) systems have gained more popularity with the introduction of stringent safety regulations. The technologies such as ABS and ESC, have been mandated in majority of the Western countries, and are expected to be regulated in developing countries such as India, China, and Brazil in next few years. This has boosted the demand for these technologies and the market size by value for these technologies is projected to grow at a CAGR of 9.36% during the forecast period.

The global brake system market, in terms of value, is projected to reach USD 29.4 Billion in 2020, at a CAGR of 6.90% from 2015 to 2020.

Technological advancements have revolutionized the braking system in various transportation industries. The introduction of electronic braking system in automotive sector as well as locomotive & rolling stock has brought about great change in the industry. The electro-pneumatic braking system market is projected to grow rapidly from 2015 to 2020 to acquire majority of the share by 2020.

The global brake system market for off-highway vehicles is projected to grow at a CAGR of 6.28% during the forecast period. Asia-Oceania is estimated to hold majority of the shares in the brake system market for off-highway vehicles. Increased activities in primary sectors of an economy such as mining and agriculture, and secondary sectors such as infrastructure development, have led to a growing demand for off-highway vehicles.

Some of the key global brake system manufacturers include ZF TRW Automotive Holdings Corp. (U.S.), Continental AG (Germany), Aisin Seiki Co. Ltd. (Japan), Knorr-Bremse (Germany), and Akebono Brake Industry Co. Ltd. (Japan). These companies comprise the largest share of the brake market.

This report covers the market for brake system categorized on the basis of application (PC, LCV, HCV, off-highway, wagon, locomotive, and RTV), type (disc and drum), technology (ABS, TCS, ESC, and EBD), rolling stock & locomotive (air, EP, ECP, and others), and region (Asia-Oceania, Europe, North America, and the rest of the world).

Exteneded Description

With the evolution in automotive industry, brake system has also witnessed a significant change, not only in the automotive industry but also in off-highway vehicles, locomotives, and rolling stocks. One of the key aspects attributing to the evolution of these systems is the introduction of safety regulations, especially pertaining to stopping or braking distance. Increasing accidents and fatalities have prompted governments to enforce stringent safety regulations as well as reduced stopping distances.

This, in turn, has triggered the brake manufacturers to bring about technical advancements to meet these norms. In response to this, automotive brake manufacturers have introduced advanced braking system such as ABS, ESC, TCS, EBD, brake-by-wire, and regenerative braking among others. Brake manufacturers in the locomotive & rolling stock industry have come up with electro-pneumatic brakes or electronically controlled pneumatic brakes with several advantages over air brakes.

These advanced braking systems not only comply with safety regulations but also offer better braking performance. The future of automotive brake industry can be defined by two gen-next technologies: regenerative braking and brake-by-wire. The first technology helps in increasing fuel efficiency by re-using the energy generated during brake friction and the latter eliminates the necessity for all the mechanical components and linkages. Asia-Oceania is estimated to dominate brake system market for automotive, which is the largest vehicle manufacturing region.

Among the types of brakes, the disc brake segment is estimated to lead the market given its lightweight, quick response, and better performance. In the brake system market for locomotive & rolling stock, the electro-pneumatic brakes segment is estimated to account for a major market share, whereas electronically controlled pneumatic brake system segment is in the growing phase. Agricultural tractors are projected to lead the global brake system market for off-highway followed by construction equipment in 2015.

The brake system market comprises large number of global as well as local players, which has intensified competition at the global level. Market players have adopted several strategies such as new product development and launches, regional expansions, acquisitions, mergers, partnerships, and collaborations to grow in the market. Some of the key players dominating the brake market include ZF TRW Automotive Holdings Corp. (U.S.), Continental AG (Germany), Aisin Seiki Co. Ltd. (Japan), Mando Corporation (South Korea), Knorr-Bremse (Germany), and Akebono Brake Industry Co. Ltd. (Japan) among others.
