Market Overview:

The global vehicle brake fluid market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 5.5% during the forecast period from 2018 to 2030. The market growth can be attributed to the increasing demand for vehicles, especially in developing countries such as China and India. Additionally, the increasing awareness about safety among consumers is also propelling the demand for vehicle brake fluids. The global vehicle brake fluid market by type is segmented into DOT 3, DOT 4, DOT 5 and DOT 5.1 segments. The DOT 3 segment accounts for a major share of the global vehicle brake fluid market and is expected to grow at a CAGR of 6% during the forecast period from 2018 to 2030 owing to its low cost and easy availability across regions.

Global Vehicle Brake Fluid Industry Outlook

Product Definition:

Brake fluid is a hydraulic fluid used in automobiles to provide stopping power. It transfers the pressure from the brake pedal to the brake pads, which squeeze the discs or drums and create friction, slowing or stopping the car.

DOT 3:

DOT 3 is a type of polyurethane that has high heat and impact resistance. It also offers superior adhesion, flexibility, and elasticity properties. DOT 3 brake fluids are used in heavy commercial vehicles such as trucks & buses for improving the braking power during emergencies. The global market for DOT 3 is expected to witness significant growth over the forecast period owing to its increasing usage in passenger cars as well as heavy commercial vehicles (HCV).

DOT 4:

DOT 4 is a transparent, colorless and odorless fluid that contains poly-alpha-olefins & glycols. It is used in the hydraulic brake system of vehicles to reduce friction between discs and drums or between drums and rotors. DOT 4 brake fluids are formulated for use in passenger cars, light trucks/4WDs & commercial vehicles with disc brakes on all wheels.

Application Insights:

OEMs held around 78.0% of the global market share in terms of revenue in 2017. OEMs use brake fluids that are specifically formulated for their vehicles and approved by the regulatory authorities as safe for road use. These brake fluids are manufactured in-house by the vehicle manufacturers or supplied from outside sources through specialty refineries under strict supervision to ensure quality standards and avoid contamination with other substances, such as engine oil, coolants, or transmission fluid.

Vehicle owners who have replaced their original equipment's (OE) recommended maintenance schedule with a more convenient one often opt for aftermarket products over those sold directly by OEMs due to various advantages they offer including lower prices and greater choice among different types of products available on the market at present times along with improved performance characteristics when compared to OE counterparts which can be used without requiring any further modifications before being installed into a vehicle¢â‚¬â„¢s system.

Regional Analysis:

Asia Pacific dominated the global market in 2017 and is expected to continue its dominance over the forecast period. The region accounts for a large share of OEM production as well as sales. Furthermore, increasing automotive production in countries such as India, China and Japan coupled with growing consumer disposable income levels are some of the major factors contributing to regional growth.

The European market was valued at USD X million in 2017 owing to high demand from Germany along with other countries including France, Italy and U.K., which forms a large part of this industry value chain due to their strong presence on roadways across Europe. However, stringent government regulations regarding vehicle brake fluid consumption may hamper regional growth over the next eight years or so until these norms are relaxed by manufacturers or governments amend them accordingly (DOT 3 & 4 fluids only).

Growth Factors:

  • Increasing demand for vehicles: The number of vehicles in use is increasing day by day all over the world. This is resulting in an increase in the demand for brake fluid.
  • Technological advancements: Vehicle brake fluid manufacturers are constantly working on improving the quality and performance of their products. This is helping to drive growth in the market.
  • Stringent safety norms: Governments across different countries are implementing stringent safety norms for vehicles, which is also contributing to growth in the vehicle brake fluid market.
