Brake Pad Market: Introduction

The global brake pad market is projected to cross US$ 5.6 Bn by 2030, expanding at a CAGR of ~4% during the forecast period. According to the statistics of World Bank Group, GDP of the global population, measured in terms of purchasing power parity, has tripled in last few decades. This increase in purchasing power of the global population has led to a rise in sales of vehicles across the globe. The increase in sales of vehicles has boosted the demand for automotive spare parts, thus driving the global brake pad market. The increase in awareness about vehicle safety has led to the disc brakes becoming a standard feature in vehicles across most countries. Numerous automakers are mounting disc brakes on all wheels of their vehicle models. This has increased the number of brake pads required per vehicle, thus boosting the brake pad market across the globe.

Expansion of Brake Pad Market

Government authorities of various countries have prohibited the use of certain hazardous raw materials in brake pads, and have made it obligatory to control the brake dust generated. Consequently, manufacturers of brake pads have developed new products made from novel materials that lower the environmental impact. For instance, in 2018, AKEBONO BRAKE INDUSTRY CO., LTD. launched a new friction material consisting of phenol resin with wood powder, which has reduced noise and vibration, and the material has less impact on the environment as compared to that of other products such as asbestos. These new raw materials provide significant opportunity for the global brake pad market.

Technological advancements in braking systems have fueled the demand for brake pads. The ABS technology increases the wear of brake pads, the wear sensors timely alert the driver of worn-out pads and numerous other such technologies increase the frequency of brake pad replacement, thus boosting the global brake pad market. Based on brake pad material, organic brake pads are gaining high popularity across the globe, owing to the lower cost of these brake pads, lower environmental concerns, and high heat transfer capabilities. These advantages make organic materials highly suitable for general-purpose applications.
