Press Release

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

Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global automotive carbon ceramic brake rotors market: Brembo, SGL Group, EBC Brakes, Surface Transforms, and Fusion Brakes.

Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: Baer, Rotora, and Wilwood Engineering.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “The latest trend gaining momentum in the market is advanced manufacturing processes incorporating lost core technology. With the advent of advanced automotive systems, modern cars have become more efficient and durable. The manufacturing process involving the production of automotive components and systems now uses innovative and advanced machines and processes. The production process of carbon ceramic brakes is continuously evolving and improving year-over-year.”

According to the report, one of the major drivers for this market is performance and fuel efficiency benefits of carbon ceramic brake pads leading to increased adoption. The automotive industry is witnessing the emergence of various performance-enhancing technologies that make driving more comfortable, enjoyable, and safe for drivers. Many automakers are working on such advanced systems and are offering performance-enhancing solutions in their vehicles to attract more customers. The automotive braking system is one of the areas where rapid developments are taking place to increase the performance of braking systems.

Further, the report states that one of the major factors hindering the growth of this market is relative high cost of ownership making them unsuitable for everyday driving. The modern automotive industry is gradually shifting to the use of advanced braking technologies, such as AEB systems, as a standard offering in vehicles. This can be witnessed in the European and American automotive markets. The automotive governing bodies have taken strategic measures to make AEB systems mandatory in their vehicles by 2022. Similarly, the penetration of carbon ceramic braking systems is increasing in the industry because of their functional advantages, especially in high-performance vehicles.
