Disc Continues its Lead Over Drum, with Over 65% Volume Share in the Automotive

Posted by Arslan on February 14th, 2019

Non-uniformity in road infrastructure coupled with advancements in braking systems continue to influence the adoption of automotive brake components. In addition, according to World Health Organization (WHO) around 1.3 million fatalities are recorded every year on account of road accidents caused by vehicles. Increasing demand for passive and active safety of automobiles on the back of growing road accidents have initiated demand for efficient automotive brake components such as brake calipers, brake pads, brake shoes and brake liners.

This factor is likely to instrumental in driving the need for efficient automotive brake components, in turn pushing their market’s growth. Fact.MR envisages that the sales of automotive brake components is estimated to cross US$ 65 Bn by end of the year of forecast. The automotive brake components market demand is projected to grow at a CAGR of around 4% in terms of value during the period of forecast, 2018-2028.

New Labelling Initiative Mitigates Threats Posed by Counterfeit Products

Prevalence of counterfeit products in the automotive sector called for same regulations apropos to labelling standards of replacement automotive brake components as original brake components in a bid to ensure vehicle safety. This triggered the implementation of ECE R90 regulation that is applicable to vehicles sold across European Union along with 30 nations in Asia Pacific and Africa.
