Global Disc Brakes Market 2019 Industry Analysis, Share, Growth, Sales, Trends, Supply, Forecast 2025

“Disc Brakes Market” adds “Global Disc Brakes Market Professional Survey Report 2019” reports to its database.

Disc brakes use a heavy disc or a rotor that is bolted to the wheel hub and rotates with it. The caliper is a stationary housing that is connected to the axle casing or stub axle and consists of two pistons which are hydraulic by nature. The ends of the pistons are attached to brake friction pads, one on each side of the disc. Passages are drilled into the caliper to help the fluid enter and leave each housing. The cooling characteristics are excellent making it highly resistant to brake fading.

When the disc brakes are applied, hydraulic pressure is built up behind the pistons and the friction pads are forced inward against the revolving disc, providing braking effort. This force of the friction pad on both sides will retard the disc. On releasing the brakes, the rubber sealing rings act as return springs and causes the piston and hence the friction pads to move away from the disc, thereby releasing it. More than one caliper can also be used but the cooling rate will reduce as well.

Market Segmentation

The global disc brakes market can be split into different market segments based on the type of material used to construct the disc brake and the different applications that each type can be used for.

Market split according to type:

  • Cast Iron: Because of the high heat and pressure a small portion of the iron and its carbon is converted to graphite which acts as a lubricant enabling smooth braking.
  • CMC: They are ceramic matrix composites which consist of various ceramic fibres that are embedded in a matrix made of ceramic.

Market split according to application:

  • Passenger Car
  • Commercial Vehicle
  • Motorcycles and Scooters
  • Others
