Automotive Regenerative Braking Market to reach $18.5 BN by 2027

  • Published Date: August 23, 2021

Automotive Regenerative Braking Market size is slated to surpass USD 18.5 billion by 2027, according to a new research report by Global Market Insights Inc.


The adoption of regenerative braking is increasing on account of the operating efficiency of vehicles through reduced fuel consumption and extending the range of batteries. Growing sales of batteries and hybrid electric vehicles across regions will escalate the automotive regenerative braking industry demand.

Due to government regulations and environmental concerns related to vehicle emissions, automobile manufacturers are shifting toward electric & hybrid electric vehicles for a sustainable energy source as a part of the green energy initiative. The slowdown in automobile vehicle sales and production owing to the COVID-19 pandemic and temporary closure of manufacturing facilities will hinder the industry expansion.

PHEV offers the flexibility to be charged externally, thus increasing the driving range of the vehicle. BEV will foresee significant growth along with the incorporation of ultracapacitors to enable fast absorption and dispersion of energy.

Promising growth is anticipated from the commercial vehicle segment

Growing infrastructure development and industrial production will boost the commercial vehicle fleet market size. Government initiatives and support to electrify the public transport fleet will expand the demand for automotive regenerative braking systems for commercial vehicles. Rising development in alternate fuel-powered commercial vehicles will significantly reduce the pollution level. Furthermore, the development of commercial vehicles by industry participants will support segment penetration.

Asia Pacific to bank upon two-wheelers penetration and presence of manufacturers

The Asia Pacific automotive regenerative braking market revenue is estimated to grow significantly during 2021 to 2027 propelled by the rising adoption of electric two-wheelers. The region leads in the production of electric two-wheelers with the presence of manufacturers including Sunra, and Okinawa. Moreover, the presence of multiple automotive players including Audi, Volkswagen, Fiat, Skoda, and BMW, among others offering a wide range of premium vehicles. Several government efforts in the shape of subsidies and tax incentives coupled with stringent environmental regulations to curb environmental pollution are increasing electric vehicle adoption.

Industry to observe a surge in R&D investments

Manufacturers in the automotive regenerative braking market are investing in research & development to minimize production and ownership costs. The key manufacturers in the industry include Continental AG, Punch Powertrain, ZF Friedrichshafen AG, Bosch Mobility Solutions, Denso, Eaton Corporation plc, and Delphi Automotive.
