Industry News

Advanced Braking Systems – Torque vectoring is a brand-new technology which transfers the engine torque to the front wheels and reducing the need to understeer. This differential has been integrated into all-wheel-drive vehicles and will be particularly useful in tough climes. Prominent manufacturers employing this technology are Mercedes and Jaguar. Furthermore, manufacturers are developing various types of brakes such as wedge and ball screw brakes with regards to changes in car designs.

Hybrid and Electric Vehicles – Rising production of electric and hybrid vehicles made feasible due to energy targets of countries and supportive government policies of electric vehicle charging infrastructure is likely to be a new growth opportunity for electronic brake system manufacturers. In 2019, Continental tasted success with its MK C1 brake system which can result in energy savings and reduce carbon emissions. It even passed the Worldwide harmonized light vehicle test procedure (WLTP), a standard for measuring fuel and electricity emissions.

Regional Outlook

The automotive electronic brake system market covers the latest trends in braking across Asia Pacific (APAC), Europe, North America, and Rest-of-the-World (RoW). Among them, the APAC region is touted to exhibit a robust growth rate during the forecast period due to strict implementation of safety norms in South Korea, Japan, and others. Surge in sales of automotive vehicles, high expendable income levels of customers, and cheap workforce are other factors which can bolster the demand in electronic brake systems.

North America held the largest market share in 2017 due to the presence of major automobile manufacturers and high customer awareness levels regarding safety measures. Moreover, governments of the U.S. and Canada have enforced stringent rules to curtail the number of accidents due to climatic conditions and driver sensibilities.

Similarly, Europe is expected to generate a major windfall thanks to environmental regulations regarding automotive vehicle production and integration of collision avoidance systems.

Key Players

Major automotive braking system manufacturers covered in the market report include Haldex AB, Delphi Automotive Plc, Robert Bosch GMBH, Autoliv Inc., Knorr Bremse AG, Wabco Holdings Inc., Continental AG, Advics Group, ZF TRW Automotive, and Denso Corporation.
