Global Carbon Brush Market Growth, Future Prospects & Competitive Analysis, 2018 – 2026


Carbon brush is a sliding contact made up of copper wires which transfers electricity from a still part in a device to the part which 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 for high temperature. Carbon brush has witnessed wide scale usage over the past years. Carbon brush also has lower elasticity, lower friction coefficient making it a high demanding product in industrial and automotive factories. Carbon brush is widely used in motors for electricity conduction by using electromagnetic waves.  

Global carbon brush market is projected to witness growth in the upcoming years mainly due to demand from automotive industry, rising economic growth in Asia Pacific combined with demand of carbon brush by automotive industry. In addition to this, rise in usage of household appliances due to steady increase in household population is likely to drive the carbon brush market. Various collaborations by the government in different parts of the world is also responsible for the growth of the market. For instance, an agreement between European Association of German Carbon Brush Manufacturers with Carbone Lorraine was aimed to minimize price of carbon brush in various countries of European region such as U.K and France. Companies which manufacture carbon brush making its products more accessible to a large number of customers along with increasing efficiency of the same. For example, Mersen has established itself in more than 40 countries in the world, thereby reaching a larger customer base. Apart from this, Mersen also offers a large variety of carbon brush tailored according to the demand applications. The company also offers WindtrackerTM Service designed for wind farm operators aimed to efficiently handle performance of wind turbine by improving tower services, offering diagnostic capabilities, and by providing training and technical support.

By type, the global carbon brush market is subdivided into, metal graphite, electro graphite, 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 Middle East & Africa. Asia Pacific leads the market and is also forecasted to continue to be the market leader in the upcoming years. In Asia Pacific, Japan, China, India drive the growth of carbon brush market. This is attributed to rapid development of automotive and electronic industries in the region. Asia Pacific is followed by North America, where 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 Middle East are anticipated to show considerable growth during the forecast period.
