Automotive Carbon Ceramic Brakes Market - About the Report

2020 was not the year for boom in sales of luxury cars purchasing in US or Europe due to the pandemic as the growth was moderate and witnessed 2-3% decline. However, China in Asia-Pacific region witnessed a substantial growth. According to the China Automobile Dealers Association, 2,77,000 luxury cars were sold in April 2020 witnessing 11.1% increase as compared to April 2019. However, manufacturers are focussing on more and more innovations to keep their leading position in the automotive carbon ceramic brakes market.

In 2019, Porsche launched their surface coated brakes which include brake rotors that are coated with a thin layer of tungsten carbide. Special brake pads are used and these brakes offer better stopping power with reduced brake fade and brake dust. The company claims that the brakes do not rust and also 30% increase in rotor life of these brakes.

Brembo SGL has announced the launch of DYATOM, a solution for braking which boosts the performance of carbon ceramic brakes to a whole new level. Combining with the motorsport technology DYATOM offers excellent wear resistance for achieving the highest thermal performance. The company in collaboration with Ford and Multimatic have worked to tune the friction performance of the pads to the DYATOM discs in order to offer aggressive braking solution for the Ford GT MK II.

Of late, in March 2021, Surface Transforms PLC, a UK based international developer, and UK’s only manufacturer of carbon- ceramic brakes has made an agreement with Chamois Consulting Ltd., a marketing and communications agency to provide integrated marketing and communication services to raise their profile globally. Surface Transforms PLC have developed a unique 3D matrix carbon ceramic weave technology which produces a stronger and more durable product having three times more heat conductivity. 

Higher thermal conductivity of carbon ceramic brakes evacuate the heat generated from the braking action more efficiently as compared to traditional brakes. Its high strength and wear resistance property providing long lasting benefits remains a significant reason of growing demand for automotive carbon ceramic brakes. 

Automotive Carbon Ceramic Brakes Market - Introduction

Automotive carbon ceramic brakes, also known as ceramic composite brakes, are a version of fixed caliper disc brakes used in high-performance vehicles and supercars. In similar driving conditions, carbon ceramic brake pads will not wear down as fast as regular brake pads, owing to their material composition.

Automotive carbon ceramic brakes are predominantly used by OEMs or high-end car manufacturers. The global revenue of automotive carbon ceramic brakes was valued at US$ 234.2 Mn by 2017 end and is expected to expand at a CAGR of 10.9% over the forecast period.

Automotive Carbon Ceramic Brakes Market - Drivers and Trends

The global automotive carbon ceramic brakes market is expected to witness a substantial growth rate in the coming years. Increasing demand for high performance and luxury vehicles across the globe is estimated to drive the sales of the automotive carbon ceramic brakes. Automotive carbon ceramic brakes cost four times more as compared to cast iron discs. They are predominantly found in high-end luxury cars or sports cars such as Porsche, Audi, Bugatti, Bentley, Lamborghini, Mercedes, Ferrari, GM Corvette and others.

Attributing to the increasing purchasing power among people and increasing demand for high-performance vehicles, people are opting for automotive carbon ceramic brake systems. Automotive carbon ceramic brakes help dissipate heat far more efficiently, maintain performance and prevent deformation.

As per FMI analysis, the demand for automotive carbon ceramic brakes will be relatively high in Europe and the NAFTA region as compared to that in Asian countries, owing to the high demand for luxury and sports cars in these regions.
