A carbon brush is a sliding contact made up of copper wires that transfers electricity from a still part of a device to the part that rotates in a rotating device. It is similar to the shape of a common brush, which transfers current and shows excellent electrical conductivity along with resistance to high temperatures. Carbon brush has witnessed wide-scale usage over the past few years. Carbon brush also has lower elasticity and a lower friction coefficient, making it a highly demanding product in industrial and automotive factories. Carbon brushes are widely used in motors for electricity conduction by using electromagnetic waves.
The global carbon brush market is projected to witness growth in the upcoming years, mainly due to demand from the automotive industry, rising economic growth in the Asia Pacific, and demand for carbon brushes by the automotive industry. Furthermore, a rise in household appliance usage due to a steady increase in household population is expected to drive the carbon brush market. Various collaborations by the government in different parts of the world are also responsible for the growth of the market. For instance, an agreement between the European Association of German Carbon Brush Manufacturers and Carbone Lorraine was aimed at minimizing the price of carbon brushes in various countries of the European region, such as the U.K. and France. Carbon brush manufacturers make their products more accessible to a larger number of customers while also increasing their efficiency. For example, Mersen has established itself in more than 40 countries around the world, thereby reaching a larger customer base. Apart from this, Mersen also offers a large variety of carbon brushes tailored according to the demand for different applications. The company also offers WindtrackerTM Service, designed for wind farm operators, to efficiently handle the performance of wind turbines by improving tower services, offering diagnostic capabilities, and providing training and technical support.
By type, the global carbon brush market is subdivided into metal graphite, electrographite, carbon graphite, resin graphite, and graphite, while by applications, the same market is segmented into motors, current and signal transmission, generators and alternators, grounding devices, and others. Apart from this, by end-use, the global carbon brush market is segmented into automotive, electrical hand tools, industrial applications, household appliances, and others.
By geography, the carbon brush market is segmented into regions such as North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Latin America, and the Middle East and Africa. Asia Pacific leads the market and is also forecast to continue to be the market leader in the upcoming years. In Asia Pacific, Japan, China, and India drive the growth of the carbon brush market. This is attributed to the rapid development of the automotive and electronic industries in the region. Asia Pacific is followed by North America, where the U.S. is contributing to the largest share of the global carbon brush market. Europe is expected to show moderate growth, while Latin America and the Middle East are anticipated to show considerable growth during the forecast period.
