Global Automotive Brake System Market Report 2013-2018

Dublin, Nov. 15, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Research and Markets ( has announced the addition of the "Global Automotive Brake System Market Report 2013-2018" report to their offering.

The modern brakes are associated with electronic assistance and hence, known as electronic brake system (EBS) as a whole. An EBS is composed of any of the functions such as Anti-lock brake system (ABS), electronic stability program (ESP), electronic brakeforce distribution (EBD), traction control system (TCS) etc.

With all these electronic assistance functions, modern automotive brakes are not limited to deceleration only, but they also play an important role in drivers assistance and safety. Increasing national & international regulations towards vehicle safety, regulations for vehicle stopping distance, and changing customer orientation in the direction of personal safety would upsurge the overall demand of automotive brakes at the promising rate in the future. Hence, many technological developments pertaining to cost-effectiveness and efficiency of the automotive brakes can be expected in subsequent five years.

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.
