OEMs are looking for various means to reduce the CO2 emissions required by 2020 standards. Since braking systems have had no drastic concept or design changes in over a decade, OEMs are now reconsidering the whole brake architecture to reduce CO2 emissions. Functions currently under development, such as brake-by-wire and vacuum-less boosters, offer OEMs the opportunity to do away with the bulky hydraulic systems. Simultaneously, technologies such as low brake drag and low mass brake parts further allow OEMs to reduce emissions. This study investigates current and future technologies for the brake system domain in the passenger vehicle market including adoption challenges. The study period is 2014 to 2021.
German OEMs are the expected front-runners in adopting new braking innovations such as low mass brake parts and low drag brake in passenger vehicles. VW and Audi are expected to spearhead the adoption of vacuum-less braking technology.
With the consolidation of supplier base, a majority of the suppliers have identical product portfolios with subtle variations. Bosch leads the market with higher market penetration of advanced braking technologies, whereas TRW and Continental have their own success stories.
Though low mass brake parts already exist in the market, their application range has been thus far restricted to premium and sports vehicles. While brake-by-wire (BbW) is expected to cater to a handful of vehicles in the premium segment, potential for vacuum-less brake technology lies across all segments.
Braking is a safety-critical function, and the requirements laid out by UN ECE R-13 are likely to reinforce the need for several layers of redundancy in brake systems. Similar to steer-by-wire (SbW), BbW requires a fail-safe or fail-operational mode to ensure a fallback mechanism.
