In 2022, the market for automotive carbon brake rotors is expected to surpass $5521.3 million, and by 2032, it is projected to reach US$ 11485.9 million. This represents a 7.6% CAGR.
In the automotive sector, high-performance cars, motorsports vehicles, and big vehicles that demand sophisticated braking systems are the main users of carbon brake rotors. Braking generates a lot of heat, which carbon brake rotors are made to endure. Despite being more expensive than cast iron brake rotors, carbon brake rotors are nevertheless employed because of their superior performance, reduced weight, and increased durability.
There are two different kinds of carbon brake rotors: carbon-carbon and carbon-ceramic. Numerous high-performance automobile manufacturers, including Ferrari SpA, McLaren, Aston Martin Lagonda Ltd., Bentley Motors Ltd., Automobili Lamborghini SpA, Bugatti Automobiles SAS, Alfa Romeo Automobiles SpA, Porsche AG, and Corvette, use these kinds of brake rotors in their vehicles.
The demand for carbon brake rotors in racing cars, bikes, high-performance cars, and heavy vehicles, along with their lightweight nature, reduced susceptibility to warping or deformation, and improved performance in both wet and dry conditions, are the main factors propelling the market for automotive carbon brake rotors. The limitation of carbon brake rotors in automobiles is their expensive price as compared to commonly utilized standard brake rotors. Supercars and other high-performance vehicles are the main applications for automotive carbon brake rotors where cost is not a concern. These brake rotors are only utilized in high-performance automobiles and motorsports because they are not employed in mass-produced, cost-conscious vehicles.
