Automotive Carbon Ceramic Brake Rotors Market : Development Insight and Manufacturers Challenge Competitors

Carbon ceramics are high performance material, which is made from a mixture of powders, fibers and resins. It has been in use since the 1970s in aerospace braking systems. Recently manufacturers have started using these in sports and private vehicles. Automotive braking system is an important part of the vehicle. Since brakes slow down cars by means of friction, they tend to get exceedingly hot and can weaken in terms of performance.

Moreover, at very high temperatures, carbon ceramics are less resistant to deformation and/or warping. Usually they last a bit longer than the traditional brakes. Lastly, the carbon ceramic brakes usually don’t corrode, even in the winter seasons.

The global automotive carbon ceramic brake rotors market is likely to grow at a significant CAGR during the forecast period. The global increase of street car and drag racing events is fuelling the growth of automotive carbon ceramic brake rotors. The rising acceptance of racing events throughout the globe is broadening the scope of drag racing. This is one of the major trends in the current automotive industry.

Beside the popular racing events such as MotoGP, F1, NASCAR racing, and rally sports with a huge fan base, the fanatics for street racing and drag racing events is also on the rise in terms of popularity and the number of events. The growing popularity of these racing events have enlarged the purview of braking systems, especially in sports cars. Moreover, as these events are widening their geographical presence, the demand for various performance enhancement systems including carbon ceramic brakes are set to rise considerably during the forecast period.
