In addition, innovation and development in the Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) will drive the market owing to the expenditures in Level 4 and Level 5 autonomous cars.

The Level 4 and Level 5 autonomous vehicle requires some human interaction to function. Hence, for safe and secure functioning, technologically advanced braking systems will be an essential part of an autonomous vehicle.

Automobile makers are always developing new and better products to make driving more fun while still remaining safe. Market players such as ZF Friedrichshafen AG, Advics Co. Ltd., Haldex, and Web co among others are regularly designing electronic stability control, anti-collision technologies, and advanced anti-lock braking systems in order to create better and safer automobiles. For instance, Continental AG developed a third-generation anti-lock braking system (ABS) that adjusts the vehicle speeds and at the same time provides safer, more regulated, and optimum braking performance.

Recent advancements in vehicle technology, as well as aerodynamic design, have enabled more efficient utilization of engine power to achieve faster speeds. Furthermore, advanced braking systems are emerging such as Electronic Stability Control (ESC), Traction Control (TC), and Electronic Brake Force Distribution (EBD).  Manufacturers across the world are investing in R&D to bring out state-of-the-art technology. This indicates a potential for the manufacturers and vendors to grow throughout the forecast period.

There are a number of constraints and roadblocks that will impede overall market expansion. The electronic braking systems' expensive research, as well as their high installation and maintenance costs, are constraining market expansion. Nonetheless, technological advancements, such as regenerative braking and the advent of the brake-by-wire system as well as untapped potential in emerging countries offer growth opportunities. Moreover,  high repair and maintenance costs for technologically advanced brakes are anticipated to hinder the growth of the automotive brake system market.

Product Type Insights

The automotive brake system market based on type is segmented into drum brakes and disc brakes. The disc brake segment held the highest market share of 60.46% in 2021 and is anticipated to develop by a CAGR of 6.5% during the forecast period.

In recent years, the application of disc brakes has grown largely. The growth of disc brakes is attributed to their capacity to work in adverse weather without overheating or fading. Additionally, its compatibility with other advanced systems is further propelling the growth of the disc brake segment.

Drum brakes have an enclosed design and employ circular components (brake shoe) to provide the necessary friction for lowering speed, whereas disc brakes use a narrow rotor and caliper to stop wheel movement. As a result, performance suffers. Although disc-based systems have more braking power than drum-based systems, automakers choose drums because they are more cost-effective.

Vehicle Insights

The automotive brake system market based on the vehicle is segmented into commercial vehicles and passenger cars. Passenger car holds the major market share and is expected to expand by a 5.7% CAGR during the forecast period.
