Global Automotive Brake Rotors Market 2017-2021

About Automotive Brake Rotors

Automotive brake rotors are the flat, round piece of metal, onto which brake pads clamp down to stop the vehicle. The brake rotors form an important part of the vehicle's braking system and are also known as discs in the automotive terminology. Brake rotors for automotive applications have witnessed significant improvements in the past couple of decades, wherein the rotors are developed using advanced materials.

Technavio’s analysts forecast the global automotive brake rotors market to grow at a CAGR of 3.12% during the period 2017-2021.

Press Release

Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Automotive Brake Rotors Market 2017-2021

Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global automotive brake rotors market: Aisin Seiki, Brembo, Bosch, EBC Brakes, Federal-Mogul, SGL Group, and Surface Transforms.

Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: AKEBONO BRAKE INDUSTRY, ATE, Baer, Centric Parts, Nakamoto, Rotora, TRW Automotive, UQuality Automotive Products, and Wilwood Engineering.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “One trend in the market is carbon ceramics brake rotors: Performance brake rotors. Advanced braking systems not only help in stopping or slowing the vehicle, but also help the drivers in the overall safety by integrating other driver assisted technologies. The braking technologies are lighter, faster, and smarter as compared with earlier braking systems, which were heavier and space consuming.”

According to the report, one driver in the market is increasing volume sales of automobiles in global market. The global automotive market is witnessing an increase in demand and volume sales for passenger cars, especially from emerging countries (like China, Brazil, and India), which have registered significant economic growth and offer elevated purchasing power. The developed regions such as North America and Europe are also contributing to the overall growth of the automotive industry, with a high proportion of luxury sedans and performance vehicles. Growth in emerging markets, with ongoing industrialization and global trade activity, especially in BRIC countries, has been vigorous.

Further, the report states that one challenge in the market is expensive replacement cost of brake rotors. Disc brake systems provide high efficiency and help achieve greater stopping distance. However, disc brakes cost more than the traditional drum brakes, not only in terms of brake systems but also in terms of mode of operations, through which the brakes work. While operating electronic braking systems, an additional sensor needs to be installed on each wheel. Once the sensors are in place, a high amount of precise calculation is needed, which adds to the additional cost. In case, if any sensors break or do not work properly, the replacement cost would be up to another $1,000, which increases the overall costs involved.
