Automotive Brake System Market Size

Automotive Brake System Market size was valued at USD 24 billion in 2023 and is anticipated to grow at a CAGR of over 5.5% between 2024 and 2032. Ongoing advancements in brake system technologies including the development of electronic braking systems, regenerative braking systems, and brake-by-wire systems, stimulate market growth. These innovations enhance braking performance, reduce stopping distances, and improve overall vehicle safety, driving consumer preference & market expansion.

Automotive Brake System Market

For instance, in November 2021, Continental AG unveiled its latest advancement in automotive braking technology, further enhancing its pioneering electro-hydraulic brake system, the MK C1. This new iteration represents a significant leap forward in performance, compactness, and integration capabilities.

The increasing adoption of Electric Vehicles (EVs) and Hybrid Electric Vehicles (HEVs) globally is driving the demand for specialized braking systems tailored to these platforms. Regenerative braking systems, which capture and convert kinetic energy into electrical energy during deceleration, are a key feature in EVs and HEVs, contributing to automotive brake systems market growth in this segment.

The integration of brake systems with advanced technologies such as electronic stability control, anti-lock braking systems, regenerative braking systems, and autonomous driving features presents technical challenges. Ensuring seamless integration, compatibility, and interoperability with other vehicle systems is essential for optimal performance & safety. Advanced brake systems rely on a variety of sensors including wheel speed sensors, yaw sensors, accelerometers & pressure sensors to monitor vehicle dynamics and driver inputs. Integrating data from these sensors and performing real-time data processing to make rapid braking decisions & adjust braking force accordingly is a significant technical challenge.

Automotive Brake System Market Trends

There is a growing demand for brake systems that integrate advanced safety features such as Electronic Stability Control (ESC), Anti-Lock Braking Systems (ABS), Brake Assist Systems (BAS), and collision avoidance systems. These features enhance vehicle stability, reduce the risk of skidding, and improve overall safety. For instance, in January 2022, Mando Corporation launched an electronic brake system, IDB2 (for highly autonomous driving). The IDB2 system integrates dynamic brake functionality with advanced electronic control systems to deliver unparalleled performance and safety.

The emergence of autonomous driving technology has significant implications for brake systems. Brake systems are being designed to integrate seamlessly with autonomous driving features such as automatic emergency braking, adaptive cruise control, and lane-keeping assist systems. These systems rely on advanced sensors & algorithms to detect potential hazards and assist in collision avoidance.

For instance, in May 2023, to enhance road safety, the U.S. government proposed the mandatory inclusion of Automatic Emergency Braking (AEB) in all new passenger cars and light trucks. This initiative is anticipated to have a profound impact, significantly reducing the occurrence of crashes associated with pedestrians and rear-end collisions.
