Report Overview

Global Automotive Brake Caliper Market – Market Outlook & Trends


The Global Automotive Brake Caliper Market valued at USD 14 billion in 2019, is expected to reach USD 18.42 billion by 2026, at a CAGR of 4% during the projection period. The growing number of vehicles and engine-based aftermarket industries across the globe assures bright market prospects for Global Automotive Brake Caliper Market. Besides, the demand for excellent and reliable automotive brake calipers from customers drives the automotive industry towards more progressive independent braking solutions. The braking systems with quality materials & protective brake plates and high acceptance rate are further, expected to create profitable opportunities for the automotive brake caliper market. The growing acceptance of disc brake in vehicles over drum brake coupled with growth in vehicle production worldwide is likely to draw more demand.


The growing concerns for vehicle safety and reduction of carbon emissions as well as favorable government policies are anticipated to support the market growth further. Moreover, developing as well as technically progressive nations across the globe are in the process of building an ecosystem for electric vehicles, which will again promote the brake caliper sales during the projection timeframe.

Global Automotive Brake Caliper Market – Overview 


The brake caliper is an essential part of the disc brake and helps stop the movement of vehicles when the driver steps on the brake paddle. It is made of semi-metallic materials comprising metals such as brass, copper, and steel. The brake calipers are equestrian over the rotor in the disc brakes and are activated by the brake cylinder's piston. The range of the brake caliper varies as per the size of the disc mounting on the wheel. The disc brake's stopping distance is less in comparison to that of the drum brake, which is a critical factor in increasing the demand for disc brake. The development of new effective and cost-efficient brake-technology may obstruct the disc brake caliper market.


Growth Drivers 


Implementation of New Manufacturing Technologies


In recent years, the manufacturing process has moved to the next progressive stage of 3D printing or preservative manufacturing. The manufacturers use the technology extensively for prototyping and end-use parts. The latest enterprise joining 3D printing based production is Bugatti-the maker of Veyron and Chiron Supercars. Its new eight-piston monobloc brake caliper has substantial distinguished features and, it is the first 3D printed major titanium component and primary brake caliper in the engine-driven industry. The caliper was built with assistance by Laser Zentrum Nord, a part of the Fraunhofer Research Group and vehicle trials are under process for the same.


Adoption of lightweight automobiles


The fixed brake caliper segment is predicted to grow substantially until 2026 as it offers advantages of enduring torque and lightweight to the transports. These products can accommodate 2 to 8 pistons on both inboard and outboard halves of the caliper equally. Rising need for high performance and low carbon-emitting vehicles is likely to induce the demand for fixed brake calipers.


Impact of COVID-19 in industry


 COVID-19 prevalence has led to lockdowns in various nations across the world, affecting their economies adversely. The automotive industry and motor-based aftermarket services have also shrunk because of the decline in demand and production globally. Automotive Brake Caliper market in 2020 has also sustained the effects of lockdown and decline in economic activities. The pandemic has led to distressing production and demand, supply chain and market disruption, and adverse monetary impact on enterprises. However, as soon as the impact of coronavirus mitigates, the development of electric vehicles and other automobiles will again strengthen the brake calliper market.


Global Automotive Brake Caliper Market: Segmentation


The Global Automotive Brake Caliper Market is segmented based on Type of vehicles, Product, Piston Material, End-user and Manufacturing Process. The market is subdivided into Passenger Car, LCV, HCV, Two-Wheelers based on Vehicle-type. PCV vehicle type segment is expected to register substantial growth on account of high demand for the automotive brake caliper. In contrast, the HCV vehicle segment will grow at a slower rate due to the long product lifecycle and the availability in the market internationally. LCV Vehicles segment secured 30% market share in 2018 and is expected to register modest CAGR because of its maximum workpiece diameter used in numerous light commercial vehicles. 


Based on product, the market is again divided into Fixed, Floating/Sliding segments. Fixed automotive brake caliper retains more than 55% share in automotive brake caliper sales and is expected to grow at a higher rate during the projected period. However, the Descending or Floating automotive brake caliper segment is also anticipated to grow at a remarkable rate, given its growing request due to effective braking and lower setup time. 


Based on End-user, the brake caliper market for automotive can be segmented into two viz., OEM and Aftermarket and between the two, the original equipment manufacturer (OEM) segment is the leading one. The OEM segment directly sells to automakers and augments the income of the manufacturers without any intermediary commission. It is likely to maintain its dominance with a substantial growth rate during the forthcoming years.

Based on Region, Global Automotive Brake Caliper Market is segmented by key regions— North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, South America, and the Middle East & Africa.
