Global Pneumatic Brakes Industry Outlook

Product Definition:

Pneumatic brakes are a type of friction brake that use compressed air to create the braking force. They are used extensively on both road and rail vehicles.

Shaft Pneumatic Brakes:

Shaft pneumatic brakes are used to control the speed of a machine or vehicle. It is an air brake system that is mounted on the driven shaft of a machine and provides automatic control overspeed protection. The braking effect depends upon the ratio between wheel speed and applied force, i.e., how hard you press on the brake pedal determines how quickly your tires will slow down.

Disc Pneumatic Brakes:

The disc pneumatic brakes are the latest innovation in the braking technology. The basic function of a brake is to reduce friction or stop the movement of a vehicle. However, traditional systems rely on air pressure and hydraulic fluid for functioning; whereas, modern-day counterparts use high-pressure nitrogen or carbon dioxide gas to generate force that acts on caliper pistons and rotors which ultimately reduces friction.

Application Insights:

Automotive application segment accounted for the largest market share in 2017 and is projected to expand at a CAGR of XX% over the forecast period. The rising number of road accidents caused due to improper driving habits, such as speeding, lack of attention and fatigue is expected to be a major factor contributing towards high demand in this application segment.

The use of pneumatic brakes in aircrafts allows pilots to apply maximum power during takeoff and landing without expending extra fuel or wearing out engines by using friction brakes, thereby increasing flight duration between two airports by up to 30%. This factor alone would indicate the wide scope for growth on account of increased efficiency exhibited by these systems during critical operations such as takeoffs and landings. Other advantages include reduced noise & vibration levels along with improved safety standards owing to better control provided over critical operations such as emergency stop & go situations when compared with conventional mechanical systems used on aircrafts.

Regional Analysis:

Asia Pacific dominated the global market in 2017 and is expected to continue its dominance over the forecast period. The growth of this region can be attributed to increasing industrialization, coupled with rapid urbanization and rising population. China is one of the largest markets for these brakes as it has been witnessing strong economic growth along with steady development in its manufacturing sector.

The demand for pneumatic brakes in Europe was valued at USD X million in 2017 owing to growing use across a wide range of industries including automotive, construction, energy & power, aerospace & defense among others. Moreover, technological advancements such as E-stop technology are also anticipated to propel industry expansion over the coming years.

North America accounted for a significant share due to high adoption levels across various industries including transportation & logistics (T&L), oil & gas exploration activities etc.

Growth Factors:

  • Increasing demand for electric and hybrid vehicles
  • Growing awareness about the benefits of pneumatic brakes over traditional braking systems
  • Rising demand from the automotive sector
  • Technological advancements in brake systems
  • Stringent government regulations to promote use of pneumatic brakes
