The automotive system would have been a killing instrument if the braking system had not been designed. Braking systems have been in presence since the first design of the automobile was done. The brake system helps in inhibiting motion by absorbing energy from the moving framework. Throughout the long term, the advancement of innovation has brought various designs and braking mechanisms to vehicles. Braking system components vary depending upon the model and types, but their purpose and the working principle remain the same. A braking system can be designed on any mechanical device where motion occurs, not just on automobiles. A considerable amount of energy or stopping power is required to reduce the speed and stop the vehicles.
A braking system consists of a Brake pedal, Brake pads, Brake shoes, Brake drum, Brake lining. Brake linings are the consumable surfaces in brake systems. Bertha Benz invented them. Brake linings are made of relatively soft but tough and heat-resistant material, having a high coefficient of dynamic friction. They are typically mounted to strong metal support utilizing high-temperature adhesives or rivets. The complete assembly (including lining and backing) is called a brake pad or brake shoe. The dynamic friction coefficient "弮" for standard brake pads is usually in the range of 0.35 to 0.42. During braking, the linings apply frictional powers to a cylindrical drum connected to the wheel to decrease its speed and improve control of the vehicle. Since the lining is that portion of the braking system that converts the vehicle's kinetic energy into heat, it must survive high temperatures without excessive wear. When the lining is worn out, the backing or rivets will contact the rotors or drums during braking, often causing damage requiring re-machining or replacement of the drums or rotors. Linings produced using more rigid brake materials cause accelerated wear and tear on the rotors or drums; hence it is imperative to check the quality and the appropriateness of the material with relation to the specifics of the system.
The global Automotive Brake Lining market is estimated to reach USD XX billion by 2027 from the recorded market size of worth USD XX billion in 2019, growing at a CAGR of XX% during the forecast period.
The emerging markets drive the global automotive brake lining market growth, and huge investment in research and development are the factors responsible for the growth of this market. Moreover, the increased vehicle production is expected to drive the market.
The increasing rate of vehicle production is likely to favor the market growth during the forecast period
With a growing population, the demand for automotive vehicles is rising at a very significant rate. Many key players are playing a significant role in dealing with the overall increased demand for vehicles across the world. According to a report by Statista, it is expected that 110 million vehicles will be produced by 2025, and Asia is on the verge of becoming the biggest market of passenger vehicle production; moreover, it is projected that the worldwide automotive industry will develop up to nine trillion U.S. dollars by 2030 with new vehicle deals will representing around 38% of the total worth. The automotive industry is the single most significant engine of economic growth in the world. It is a vital sector of the economy for every major country in the world. The industry continues to grow, witnessing a 30 percent increase over the last few decades. The automobile industry not only gave people personal freedom and access to jobs and services but also led to the development of better roads and transportation. It also led to the development of the Petroleum Industry. The automotive industry is vast and dynamic, representing around one out of ten jobs in industrialized nations. Developing nations regularly look to their local automotive sector for economic growth opportunities, mainly because of the huge linkages that the automobile industry has to other sectors of their economy.
The automobile industry has become more competitive due to the growing trends in the automobile industry in Asia. Asia has witnessed the potential growth for the automobile industry across the region. The industry has contributed nearly 3 - 3.5 percent to the overall Gross Domestic Product (GDP). The industry directly employs over 1.7 million people engaged in designing, engineering, manufacturing, and supplying parts and components to assemble, sell and service new motor vehicles. In addition, the industry is a massive consumer of goods and services from many other sectors, including raw materials, construction, machinery, legal, computers and semi-conductors, financial, advertising, and healthcare. Due to the industry's consumption of products from many other manufacturing sectors, it is a significant driver of the 11.5% manufacturing contribution to GDP. Without the auto sector, it isn't easy to imagine manufacturing surviving in the countries.
The harmful nature of asbestos is likely to hinder the market growth during the forecast period
Asbestos is among the most commonly used element for brake linings, but the dust created by asbestos is quite harmful when inhaled. Alternatives for asbestos have been developed, such as aramid fibers which are now frequently used in braking components. The utilization of asbestos in the automotive industry has been a matter of great controversy. Various proposed government regulations, including EPA's recent proposal of an eventual ban on the use of asbestos in friction products, have added to the discussion. This proposition could influence both the off-highway and on-highway segments of the automotive industry to discover reasonable choices for asbestos utilized in brake linings. Many industries, including Rockwell International, shared the health concerns caused by long-term exposure to asbestos fibers. Asbestos has been used as a friction material for more than 80 years because of its good physical and chemical properties. Due to the health hazard associated with its handling, it has lost favor, and several alternative materials are being increasingly used. According to a report by World Health Organisation, asbestos is a harmful cancer-causing material. The dust asbestos-lined brakes created in a brake drum can cause Mesothelioma. Mesothelioma is mainly a type of cancer that attacks the lungs and digestive tract; moreover, The World Health Organisation has also found that all six forms of asbestos can cause cancer.
By type, the market is segmented into Non-Asbestos Brake Lining, Semi-Metallic Brake Lining, Ceramic Friction Brake Lining, Low-Metallic NAO and Others. By raw material, the market is segmented into Fibrous materials, Abrasive particles, Anti-wear materials, Fillers, Binders, Additives and Others. By vehicle type, the market is segmented into Passenger, Light Duty, Medium Duty, Heavy-duty and Electric. By distribution channel, the market is segmented into Aftermarket and Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM).
The use of Non-Asbestos Brake Lining is expected to grow at a rapid rate during the forecast period
Friction materials are of great application for braking and transmission in different machines. Their composition continues to change to stay up with the technological development and environmental/legal requirements. For over 80 years, asbestos has been utilized as a friction material due to its great chemical and physical properties. Due to the increasing health issues related to the handling of asbestos, the use of asbestos has lost its popularity; instead, a non - asbestos friction material was created utilizing an agro-waste material base - palm kernel shell (PKS)- along with the use of other different constituents; probably a substitute for asbestos. Among the agro-squander shells researched, the PKS showed more good properties. Taguchi procedure was utilized to accomplish friction material formulation and manufacturing parameters. The derived friction material was utilized to create automobile disk brake pads. The laboratory brake pads were tested for wear and effectiveness on a car. In comparison with a premium asbestos-based commercial brake pad, they were found to have performed most satisfactorily. More wear was seen on the PKS pad at high vehicular speeds beyond 80km/hour. The outcomes recommend that palm part shell could be a potential replacement for asbestos in friction lining materials.
