Global Motorcycle Brake by Wire (BBW) System Market 2017-2021

Global Motorcycle Brake by Wire (BBW) System Market 2017-2021

About Motorcycle Brake by Wire (BBW) System

By wire (BW) in the automotive industry is a technology borrowed from the field of aviation, where fly-by-wire systems (FBW) have been in use for some time. BW systems involve the use of electrical or electromechanical systems for carrying out vehicle functions, which have been traditionally achieved by mechanical linkages. The BBW system in motorcycles converts the hydraulic pressure generated by the rider's brake levers and pedal inputs into electronic signals, which then communicate to a control unit that decides on how much power to apply to front and rear wheels. A computer then calculates the front and the rear braking forces based on the rider's input.

Technavio’s analysts forecast the global motorcycle brake by wire (BBW) system market to grow at a CAGR of 45.29% during the period 2017-2021.

Press Release

Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Motorcycle Brake by Wire (BBW) System Market 2017-2021

Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global motorcycle brake by wire (BBW) system market: Continental AG, Bosch, BWI group, ZF TRW, and NXP Semiconductors.

Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: Johnson Electric, ADVICS (Aisin Seiki), and Honda.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “The latest trend gaining momentum in the market is IBC system: A replacement for brake assist technologies. ZF TRW, one of the leading automotive suppliers, has introduced an IBC system, which is a vacuum-independent technology to further simplify the brake system while enhancing the performance of the vehicle. The IBC system is a single integrated unit, which would replace the ESC system along with the vacuum booster assembly, associated cables, sensors, switches, electronic controllers, and vacuum pumps that are required for low or vacuum configurations”

According to the report, one of the major drivers for this market is cost benefits of BBW technology from end-user and OEM perspectives. The BW technology provides freedom from the mechanical linkages, and this significantly lowers the cost of a vehicle with more efficient packaging. This is because electronic systems require lesser components than the mechanical linkages. Traditional mechanical components such as the steering column, intermediate shafts, pumps, hoses, vacuum servos, belts, coolers, and master cylinders are removed from the vehicle when a BW system is used. The BW system is lightweight due to the use of less materials. This reduces not only the cost of engineering but also the manufacturing costs. Doing away with the mechanical constraints also improves the vehicle ergonomics.

Further, the report states that one of the major factors hindering the growth of this market is safety and security: bane for BBW systems. Safety and security are the prime concerns of the existing and prospective users of any electronic assist system such as the BBW system implanted in their vehicles. The reason behind these concerns is that such systems are designed to take control of the total functionality of the vehicle. Also, the users do not clearly understand what are the situations and circumstances in which the onboard computer would be making the decisions.
