Rising installation of disc brakes in automobiles for superior braking efficiency will drive the automotive brake pads market growth over the forecast period. The system requires less effort for controlling vehicle speed and generates less heat as compared to drum brakes. Low heat generation reduces the wear and tear that increases service life. Moreover, reduced sound and vibrations will further propel the product demand.

Increasing vehicle production across the globe will escalate the automotive brake pads market size. According to International Organization of Motor Vehicle Manufacturers (OICA), in 2017, the overall vehicle production rose to over 97 million with an increase of over 2.5% as compared to 2016. Automotive industry participants are equipping the vehicles with disc brakes for superior vehicle safety. In September 2018, Royal Enfield launched 650 twins in the U.S. with disc brake as standard feature.

Ongoing government initiatives for stopping distance will induce significant growth potential in the automotive brake pads market size. In August 2013, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) reduced the required stopping distance for heavy duty vehicles by 30%. Further the regulation mandates the braking test at multiple speed. Decreasing minimum stopping requirement in light and heavy commercial vehicles will boost the industry demand.

Technological upgradation for development of lightweight and environment friendly braking system will propel the automotive brake pads market size. Pad manufacturers are engaged in developing products with advanced friction material for superior vehicle control. For instance, in April 2018, Wilwood Engineering, Inc introduced BP-30 compound smart pads for racing and performance vehicles offering fade resistance, high friction and low wear.

Stringent government regulations for pad manufacturing and raw material will limit the automotive brake pads market growth. For instance, in September 2010, the California Department of Toxic Substance Control introduced senate bill (SB) 346 prohibiting the use of products manufactured using material including copper and other toxic substances. Further, in 2014, the law prohibited the use of specific heavy metals and asbestos to reduce environmental pollution.

Increasing raw material prices will hinder the automotive brake pads market proliferation. Limited operating temperature range and its compatibility with high performance vehicles will further restrict product demand. However, continuous advancements in braking systems and its development organic fibres to meet emission regulations will positively influence the industry size over the forecast period.
