Strategic Analysis of Electronic Braking System Market in Europe
Electronic braking technology is on verge of eliminating vacuum boosters in an effort to improve the overall vehicle efficiency and braking performance. The current trend of electronically modulating mechanical system, vacuumless braking will be the next step towards bridging the gap between braking technology used on non EVs and fully electric vehicles. The study is based on secondary and primary research data collected from all the major suppliers, OEMs and as well as the EuroNCAP and similar legislative bodies. The base year for the study is 2013 and covers the period till 2020 and analyses all vehicle segments
Executive Summary—Key Findings
European original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) and suppliers are leading the way in implementing vacuum- less solutions to develop brakes that constantly interact with advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS).
Honda provides the EBS technology as standard on % of its models, which is the highest among Asian OEMs, but the technology is non-existent on about 8%.
Despite leading the way in terms of ESC fitment rates, Volkswagen (VW) is the only European manufacturer to match Toyota in providing the technology in its entire line.
Bosch and Continental hold the maximum market share, though all OEMs are moving along similar lines to incorporate EBS.
Suppliers are moving towards electro-hydraulic and EBS that provide a scalable functional range depending on OEM requirements.
Lack of legislation mandating electronic stability control (ESC) in Europe is curbing the penetration of EBS into mass market segments.
On the other hand, stringent emission-related regulations may push the technology towards quicker adaptation due its potential to improve fuel economy by weight reduction.
Vacuum-less braking with the integration of the actuation and modulation units is expected to be the future of braking.
Integration of the actuation and modulation units is creating an architectural change from a 3-box design to a 2-box design.
