Automobile Brakes Manufacturing in the US - Industry Market Research Report

Automobile Brakes Manufacturing in the US

Following years of decline in the wake of the recession, the Automobile Brakes Manufacturing industry has achieved consistent growth since 2011. Downstream automakers ramped up production in response to renewed demand fueled by the economic recovery, and thus increased purchases of brakes from industry manufacturers. However, growth is expected to slow in the next five years as low-cost imports satisfy an increasing share of domestic demand. Meanwhile, volatile prices of inputs, such as steel and copper have threatened profit margins and added uncertainty for industry operators. As a result, revenue growth through 2021 is expected to be marginal.

Companies in this industry manufacture and rebuild motor vehicle brake systems and related components for major US automakers and other foreign automakers that operate manufacturing operations in the US.

This report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecasts, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
