Inflation and Looming Recession to Haunt Businesses:

In 2022 & 2023, market players expected to sail in rough waters; might incur losses due to huge gap in currency translation followed by contracting revenues, shrinking profit margins & cost pressure on logistics and supply chain. Further, U.S. economy is expected to grow merely by 3% in 2022. Purchasing power in the country is expected to fell nearly by 2.5%.
On the other hand, European countries to see the worst coming in the form of energy crisis especially in upcoming winters!! Right after COVID-19, inflation has started gripping the economies across the globe. Higher than anticipated inflation, especially in western world had raised concerns for national banks and financial institutions to control the economic loss and safeguard the interest of the businesses. Increased interest rates, strong USD inflated oil prices, looming prices for gas and energy resources due to Ukraine-Russia conflict, China economic slowdown (~4% in 2022) disrupting the production and global supply chain and other factors would impact each industry negatively.

Global Automotive Brake System Market: Growth Drivers and Challenges

Growth Drivers

  • Rising Road Accidents and Fatality Rates Owing Reckless Driving - In accordance with the World Health Organization, there are nearly 1.3 million people who lose their lives as a result of road traffic accidents every year worldwide.

The implementation and development of the smart barking system for automobiles resulted in a reduced number of accidents. As a result of the latest advancements, the vehicle is prevented from skidding, thereby reducing the risk of accidents. The increasing number of road traffic fatalities has prompted the major players to adopt robust safety features. Thus, the rapid rise in the production of automobiles coupled with the rising number of traffic accidents is anticipated to drive automotive brake system growth over the forecast period.

  • Speedy Development of the Automobile Industry Owing to Rising Purchases - For instance, between April 2021 and March 2022, almost 22,930,200 vehicles were produced by the Indian automobile industry comprising passenger cars, commercial vehicles, three and two-wheelers, which is an increase over the 22,600,600 units produced between April 2020 and March 2021. 

  • Increased Investment in the Electrification of Vehicles as the Petrol Prices are Rising High - In 2022, Mahindra & Mahindra announced plans to invest USD 1 billion in electric vehicles over the next five years. With a goal of selling 2 lakh electric vehicles by FY-2027, they are embarking on a new direction.

  • Regulations Imposed by Governments to Ensure Safety as They are Still Under Development -The NHTSA announced two rulemakings to require emergency braking performance for both heavy and light vehicles under the Unified Agenda of Regulatory and Deregulatory Actions in 2021. To require that light vehicles have automatic emergency braking for pedestrians.

  • Rising Electric Vehicles (Evs) Sales Worldwide - It was observed that Electric car sales reached 2.5 million in 2020, up by 35% from 2019. Globally, however, there were more than 10 million electric vehicles sold in 2020.


  • Stringent Government Regulations on Product Approval

  • Lofty Price of Repair and Maintenance of Technological Advance Brakes- The development and maintenance cost of brake systems in automotive vehicles is very expensive as the service of brakes includes periodic changes of brake fluid, shoes, pads, resurfacing rotors, and services such as cleaning, lubricating, and adjusting the brakes. Also, the brake sensors cost more than hundreds of dollars which includes 2 wheels. Hence, penetration of these systems in low-income countries is difficult and all these factors hamper market growth.

  • Higher Prices of Advanced Technologies Such as Magnetic and Electric Braking Systems

The global automotive brake system market is segmented and analyzed for demand and supply by vehicle class into passenger cars, light commercial vehicles, heavy commercial vehicles, and others. Among these segments, the passenger cars segment is anticipated to capture the largest market size in the global automotive brake system market backed by the increasing trade and sales of passenger cars around the globe. For instance, in 2021, a total of 55 million passenger cars were sold worldwide, which was an increase from 52 million cars sold in 2020. In addition, the adoption of advanced technologies in the manufacturing of passenger vehicles, the growing demand for automated vehicles with high safety features, and economic growth are expected to augment segment growth in the coming years.
