Automotive Drum Brake Market to slide over the innovation spectrum by year end 2029

Automotive Drum Brakes Market: Introduction

A drum brake is a braking system that stops a vehicle by applying pressure to a series of brake shoes pressed against an outer drum-shaped cover. It is therefore referred to as a drum brake. It is a simple and economical braking system used in automobiles. The drum brake system has been around for a while and has integrated into the automotive field.

The majority of heavy and medium-duty commercial vehicles have drum brakes. In relation to the increasing car production, the need for car drum brakes is increasing.

Campaigns by the Automotive Governance Council are pushing car manufacturers to improve braking systems to raise awareness. As a result, the demand for automotive drum brake systems is expected to increase during the projection period.

The demand for drum brakes is increasing due to the increasing production of commercial and passenger vehicles. Automotive drum brakes are mainly used in commercial vehicles because they are the most cost-effective braking system. In addition, drum brakes are easy to install, and they can work with hydraulic and mechanical actuators.

Due to the fact that they are equipped with servo brakes, which can multiply the braking force, drum brakes do not require a brake booster to increase the braking force. In addition, it is placed in the wheel hub, which reduces the likelihood of external damage and frequent replacement. Due to these factors, the maintenance cost of drum brakes is low, which drives the demand for drum brakes in the automotive market.

The automotive drum brake market is influenced by the development in the disc brake market in recent years, as disc brakes are relatively more efficient and require less maintenance. The passenger cars implement disc brakes for front wheels and drum brakes for rear wheels.

The expansion and development of the disc brake market is expected to constrain the automotive drum brake market over the forecast period. However, installing disc brakes is complex and maintenance costs are higher. So, equipping with disc brakes will lead to an increase in the cost of heavy vehicles. In addition, the low growth of commercial vehicles is hampering the growth of the automotive drum brake market.

Regional Outlook

The automotive drum brake market for Asia-Pacific countries is growing due to larger vehicle production in the region, followed by North America, which is a major producer of commercial vehicles. However, the market for Europe is likely to shrink due to the increasing preference for disc brakes, including for commercial vehicles.

For the Asia-Pacific countries such as China, India, Japan, etc., factors such as the increase in construction activity and smart city initiatives by governments will drive the commercial vehicle market, which in turn is expected to escalate the growth in the market for automobile drums. These factors are expected to account for the Asia Pacific region’s dominance in the global automotive drums market.
