Rising Safety Concerns Elevating Demand for Electric Parking Brakes – Fact.MR Study
A newly published report by Fact.MR establishes that the global market for electric parking brakes is expected to surpass a CAGR of 12% until 2031, clocking a valuation of US$ 4 Bn. Increasing tilt towards hydraulic based vehicular assemblies is majorly driving demand for the market in forthcoming years.
Historically, from 2016 to 2020, electric parking brake sales expanded at over 10% CAGR, reaching a valuation of US$ 1.3 Bn. Prospects somewhat dipped amidst the COVID-19 pandemic, as mandatory shutdowns hindered automotive industry manufacturing processes in the first half of 2020. As relaxations were granted, factory premises resumed operations, restoring said projections.
The electric parking brake features fewer mechanical components and requires less maintenance, as well as providing a highly efficient emergency braking system, intelligent management of malfunctions by the ECU, and more space in the vehicle’s central area. By replacing mechanical levers and cables with an electronic system, the parking brake will provide drivers with more assistance. Also, it frees up space in the dashboard for other purposes.
