DUBLIN, June 17, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --
Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/fdbc63/automotive_brake) has announced the addition of the "Automotive Brake System Market" report to their offering.
Automotive brakes have evolved from simple wooden block brakes which were used in steel rimmed wheels, to modern days disc and drum brakes with electronic assistance. The key function of brakes in automobiles is to slow down or stop the vehicle in motion. Majority of the brakes used in automobiles are of friction types, in which the brakes use friction to slow down the vehicle. In this, brakes convert the kinetic energy of the moving wheels to heat energy via friction, which is then dissipated into the atmosphere.
Apart from friction, another type of brake is electromagnetic or electro-mechanical brakes. These use electromagnetic force to apply mechanical resistance. The electromagnetic brakes are popularly used in trains and trams. However, recent designs have increased the possibility of using electromagnetic brakes in aircraft to reduce the wear and tear on the tires with regenerative braking (energy recovery mechanism).
The report segments the market based on vehicle types (passenger, commercial, heavy trucks and buses, and two-wheelers); geography (Asia-Pacific, Europe, North America, and Rest of the World); brake types (disc and drum); technology (brakes with and without electronic assistance); and provides market forecast in terms of volume (number of brakes) and revenue ($million) for aforesaid segments.
The report classifies and defines the demand for brakes in the automobile industry. It covers qualitative data about automotive brakes as a system, its components and functions. The report also provides a comprehensive review of major market drivers, restraints, opportunities, challenges, and key issues in the automotive brakes market.
