Market Research:

Brake shims are primarily used in vehicles to reduce noise and vibration. Rubber coated brake shims are thin rubber adhesive pads that fit between the brake pad and the brake calliper to correct variations that cause noise. A rubber-coated brake pad shim is installed between the brake calliper piston and the brake pad backing plate on the inboard side. Similarly, a rubber-coated brake pad shim is installed between the outer calliper fingers and the brake pad backing plate at the outboard. The rubber-coated brake shim is made of a noise-cancelling material that reduces vibration transmission to the calliper. Demand for improved vehicle performance and control, increased adoption of noiseless disc brakes, and increased vehicle production are some of the key factors driving the global rubber coated brake shim market. Furthermore, the high installation and maintenance costs of automotive disc brake systems have hindered the growth of the rubber coated brake shim market, particularly in developing countries with limited spending power. The overall market size of rubber coated brake shim is projected to rise from US$ 62.0 million in 2020 to US$ 91.39 million by 2027.

Interesting Facts of Rubber Coated Brake Shims

  • Growing safety awareness, as well as the adoption of advanced braking systems drives the market
  • The passenger car segment dominated the market in 2020 and is expected to continue to do so throughout the forecast period.
  • During the forecast period, the e-commerce segment is expected to grow at the fastest CAGR. Rising demand for price transparency and greater part diversity have accelerated the segment in the global rubber coated brake shim market.
  • In 2020, Asia Pacific dominated the market, and this dominance is expected to continue throughout the forecast period. Growing automotive vehicle sales and increased OEM investment in various Asia Pacific countries have boosted the market for rubber coated brake shims material in this region.

Increase in demand for better performance and control of the vehicle

The main factor influencing the growth of rubber-coated brake shim material is the increased demand for improved vehicle performance and control. As a component attached to the friction pad backing plate, rubber-coated brake shim material provides multifunction noise control. Most companies are developing and releasing advanced rubber-coated brake shims to the market to improve vehicle performance and control. As an example:

  • Meneta Advanced Shims Technology A/S specializes in the production of anti-noise shims for disc brake systems.
  • Util Group manufactures disc brake shims in order to address one of the industry's most pressing concerns: noise, vibration, and hardness (NVH).
  • NUCAP Industries, a manufacturing company based in Canada, provides NU-LOK design shims to maximize attachment and spring action required to optimize anti-noise performance.

In 2020, Asia Pacific holds the  dominant position In global market

Asia Pacific dominated the global market in 2020, and this dominance is expected to continue for the duration of the forecast period. This is primarily due to an increase in vehicle production as a result of rising vehicle demand in this region. According to the International Organization of Motor Vehicle Manufacturers, the following countries have the most vehicles sold:

  • Around 25.7 million motor vehicles were sold in China in 2019, up from 24.6 million in 2015.
  • In 2019, approximately 3.8 million motor vehicles were sold in India, up from 3.4 million in 2015.
  • In Japan, approximately 5.1 million motor vehicles were sold in 2019, an increase from 5 million in 2015.
  • Australia and New Zealand - In 2019, approximately 1.8 million motor vehicles were sold in Australia and New Zealand, up from 1.2 million in 2015.

The companies are putting a lot of emphasis on strategic partnerships in order to expand their footprints and market share.

The expansion of automotive manufacturing facilities eventually increases the demand for rubber-coated brake shims. Vehicle demand is increasing year after year.

Increasing adoption of noiseless disc brakes, as well as increased demand for better vehicle performance and control, are some of the market's key driving factors.

Due to COVID-19, most of the countries followed a complete lockdown for several months, which, in turn, has impacted vehicle production. Manufacturing units around the world have been closed, resulting in a drop in sales of automotive spare parts, which has impacted global production. Although some OEMs have resumed production, the automotive rubber coated brake shim market may witness significant decline in 2020.
