Automotive Carbon Ceramic Brakes Market

Automotive Carbon Ceramic Brakes Market: Increasing Demand for High Performance and Luxury Vehicles to Augment Revenue Growth During the Forecast Period: Global Industry Analysis 2013 - 2017 and Opportunity Assessment 2018 - 2028

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 automotive carbon ceramic brakes market 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.

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 growth of the automotive carbon ceramic brakes market. 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.
