The need to decrease stopping distance, and increase in vehicle production will together drive the brake friction OE market

  • The brake disc is the fastest growing market, by product, in terms of value. Majority of the present-day vehicles are equipped with disc brake disc as they are easy to install, repair, and are durable than the drum brake. However, with the advancement in brake friction technology, disc brake friction will show better growth than the drum brake system as it enhances the power and durability of friction products of vehicles.
  • The important factors driving the growth of this market include the demand for passenger cars and commercial vehicles. However, a major restraint for the brake friction products market is the increasing life of brake friction products.
  • Ongoing new product developments by leading companies for advanced differential systems and components are likely to propel further growth of the automotive differential market during the forecast period.
