The global automotive braking system market is segmented, based on its working technique, into following categories:

  • Hydraulic Braking System
  • Pneumatic Braking System

Automotive Braking System Market

Hydraulic and pneumatic braking systems have completely taken over the conventional mechanical braking system across all the vehicle class. Hydraulic braking system is by far the most widely adopted braking system in automobile industry. Hydraulic braking system offer several merits such as quick response, compact construction and efficient braking. Vehicle stopping distance of hydraulic braking system is significantly less compared to other braking methods. Subsequently, hydraulic braking system is suitable for almost all of the vehicle classes including passenger cars, light commercial vehicles and two wheelers. With the consistent growth expected across the automotive industry, hydraulic brake system is projected to retain its dominant position in the market throughout the forecast period.

Pneumatic braking system segment follow hydraulic braking segment, in terms of revenue, as of 2015. Pneumatic braking systems are heavy in construction and can transfer braking force over longer distance than hydraulic braking system. Owing to these attributes, pneumatic braking system is particularly used in heavy commercial vehicles. In addition, the overall running cost of pneumatic braking system is also limited as it uses air as its working medium. Consistent rising demand for commercial vehicles worldwide would lead to steady demand for pneumatic braking system.

The global automotive braking system market is segmented, based on the technology, into following categories:

  • Antilock Braking System (ABS)
  • Electronic Stability Control System
  • Regenerative Braking System

Automotive Braking System Market

Introduction of electronic systems has increased the efficiency of modern day automotive braking systems. One of the most predominantly used electronic features in automotive braking system is antilock braking system (ABS). Antilock braking system aids in preventing vehicle skidding on sudden application of brakes, thereby reducing the risk of any severe accidents. ABS has been made mandatory in various in countries including the U.S., the U.K. and other European countries. This has led to strong across the ABS segment, over the period of time.

Electronic stability control system (ESC) is expected to emerge as the fastest growing segment in the overall automotive system market. ESC offers various improved features than ABS including better traction control and prevention of mishaps due to over-steering. Similar to ABS, ESC is mandatory in vehicles across countries such as the U.S., Canada, the U.K., and other countries under European Union.

Further, regenerative braking is another promising technology being adopted in nascent times. With ability to generate electricity through braking force, regenerative braking is applied in electric and hybrid vehicles. With the rising in trend of electric and hybrid vehicles, overall regenerative braking system market is expected to grow at a continuous rate during the forecast period.

The global automotive braking system market has been segmented, on the basis of geographical regions, as per following regions and countries:
