The global air brake system market size reached US$ 7.6 Billion in 2022. Looking forward, IMARC Group expects the market to reach US$ 12.4 Billion by 2028, exhibiting a growth rate (CAGR) of 8.27% during 2023-2028.
An air brake system is a friction brake relying on compressed air pressing to stop a vehicle. It includes various components, such as brake chambers, foot valves, slack adjusters, brake shoes, drums, and air reservoirs, dryers and compressors. As compared to hydraulic brakes, an air brake system is more powerful and reliable, provides better control, reduces stopping distance, prevents extensive wear and tear of parts, and offers heavy braking effects. Consequently, it is used in railroad trains and heavy commercial vehicles, including trucks and buses.
Air Brake System Market Trends:
The global market is primarily driven by the widespread adoption of air brake systems due to their reliability and efficiency. These systems are easy to remove and attach and remain effective even with an air leak. In line with this, their increasing demand on account of rising vehicle safety concerns across the globe is creating a positive outlook for the market. Additionally, the introduction of lightweight air brake systems for trailer and line haul applications that use fewer parts and provide more ground clearance, protection from road debris, and higher efficiency are providing an impetus to the market growth. Furthermore, manufacturers are developing new and advanced components that are effective in the railways and high-speed trains while assuring safety and maintaining control over the vehicle. This, in turn, is strengthening the growth of the market around the world. Other factors, including the implementation of various government initiatives to promote the use of brake systems in heavy vehicles, increasing production and development of high-speed trains, and extensive research and development (R&D) activities, are anticipated to drive the market in the coming years.
