High usage of disc brakes in LCV is likely to surge the market revenue

Automotive brake caliper market from LCV segment is poised to generate over USD 2.5 billion by 2027. Increasing implementation of disc brakes particularly in emerging countries will propel the industry statistics. Increased use of vans, pickup vehicles, etc., will lead to a greater demand for enhanced brake systems owing to features such as wider wheelbase, larger brake calipers, and higher gross vehicle weight. Obligatory installation of the product mainly for the front wheels will further boost the product penetration. Moreover, auto producers of Europe tend to rely on compressed air brakes as the vehicle weight exceeds 6 – 7 metric tons, whereas in the U.S., pickup trucks tend to use larger brake calipers.

Increasing focus on light-weighting and fuel efficiency products will spur steel automotive brake caliper demand

Automotive Brake Caliper Market Share By Piston Material

In 2020, the piston material made of steel segment accounted for around USD 4.5 billion revenue. The dominance is mainly attributed to cost-effectiveness compared to other materials and easy availability. Steel pistons are most commonly used in passenger cars and heavy commercial vehicles, since they offer superior durability along with the ability to withstand superior compressive force. Manufacturers are improving the product quality to increase the product portfolio and to gain a competitive advantage.

Fixed calipers segment to capture a major automotive brake caliper market share

The fixed calipers segment is anticipated to cross nearly 180 million units demand by 2027. The fixed calipers with characteristic performance and design offer residual torque advantage and weight reduction in passenger cars, resulting in lesser emissions and low fuel consumption. The fixed calipers have high performance; however, they are expensive. As the number of installed pistons rises the price of the brake caliper also rises. Dozens of pistons are installed in sports and premium cars, thereby increasing performance as well as the cost.

High production rate to drive high-pressure die casting penetration

Based on manufacturing process, the high-pressure die casting segment is forecasted to witness a growth rate of more than 4% through 2027. The high-pressure die casting is expected to dominate the automotive brake caliper market statistics impelled by an extensive use of this process in the production of brake calipers, especially the steel variants. Furthermore, this process is highly preferred by its major benefit of higher production rate as compared to its counterparts.

Asia Pacific to hold a significant market share

Automotive Brake Caliper Market Size By Region

Asia Pacific is set to record about 45% of the automotive brake caliper market share by 2027. Intensified competition in the region on account of higher production capacity is affecting the profit margin of the participants. Manufacturers are focusing on value addition in the vehicles apart from high-end cars. Dependency of vehicle manufacturers on the home market is influencing the supply chain of the product. Favorable foreign-based investments led by potential market coupled with major vehicle production in the region will augment the demand.

Due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic, many automotive manufacturers are focusing on the decentralization of key components or raw materials, as depending on a single supplier may cause disruption in the supply chain of the company.

The automotive brake caliper industry to be highly competitive

Some of the major manufacturers are ACDelco, AISIN Group, Akebono, Alcon, Apec Braking, APG, ATL Industries, Automotive Brake Engineering, Bendix, Brakes International, Brembo, Budweg, Continental, Remy Automotive, Robert Bosch, and ZF. Key strategies adopted by these manufacturers are expansion of production facilities and investments in R&D and new product development.

The automotive brake caliper market is highly competitive with the presence of a large number of players offering identical products. The competition is increasing with improving distribution channel by industry players and the new companies entering in the market. The prominent market participants are focusing on reducing the weight of the caliper and increasing aftermarket sales support to gain a competitive advantage.

With rising demand for automotive brake calipers, many manufacturers are focusing on the acquisition of tier-2 companies to enhance their global presence. For instance, in May 2020, ZF acquired WABCO Holdings Inc. for pioneering the next generation of solutions and services for OEMs and aftermarkets globally.
