The antilock braking system (ABS) prevents wheels of vehicles to suddenly stop moving or lock at the time of sudden or hard braking. ABS operates by braking successively for providing better control to drivers in critical situations, and decreasing stopping distances in case of an emergency. An electronic stability control (ESC) is known to be the best safety system for vehicles when they are moving sideways. In emergency situations ESC operates through sensors provided in vehicles that account for ABS, steering & throttle by assessing potential skid, apply necessary brakes, and cutting power for counteracting the slide.

New Window of Growth Opportunity for ABS and ESC Market in Developing Economies

Active safety systems are becoming an integral part of passenger cars, with higher demand among consumers for systems such as ESC and ABS that avert accidents, particularly in developing countries. Legislations in developing economies are catching up rapidly, opening window of growth opportunity for ABS and ESC market. A number of institution such as New Car Assessment Program (NCAP) are awarding cars with safety ratings on the basis of their safety performance. Governments across the globe are imposing stringent safety norms on vehicles. Leading manufacturers are taking initiatives for increasing awareness of various safety systems in vehicles through marketing campaigns. Technological advancements in the automotive sector have made the provision of safety systems such as ABS and ESC affordable.


The demand for luxury cars is expected to surge in the upcoming years, especially across regions such as Asia-Pacific excluding Japan (APEJ) and Europe. With recognized benefits of ABS and ESC and a number of regions moving to legislate these safety systems, several manufacturers across the globe are making their fitment in vehicles mandatory. Although ESC and ABS are effective safety systems, they cannot surpass limits of driving physics. The vehicles equipped with ABS and ESC may go off control when driven too fast, hinting at these systems in not being a license for rough driving style.
