Stakeholders to Improve Functional Properties of Automotive Brake Pads amidst Evolving Industry Requirements

Technological advancements and innovations continue to drive the automotive sector worldwide. The pursuit of the development of vehicles for the cities of the future has accelerated the pace at which technology is progressing, particularly in the automotive sector. Braking systems and components play an integral role in safeguarding the integrity of a vehicle. With significant technological developments, automotive manufacturers are allotting a substantial amount of resources toward the development of improved disk brakes, wherein automotive brake pads/blocks are an integral component of the standard braking equipment.

Stakeholders in the current automotive brake pad market are increasingly focusing on improving the design aspects of their products to enhance efficiency and prevent wear and tear. Apart from these key areas, participants in the current automotive brake pad market are also likely to improve the frictional properties of their automotive brake pads to gain a competitive edge over their competitors. Major companies in the current market landscape are exploring the potential of an array of materials to develop automotive brake pads for automotive vehicles of the future.

Growing Emphasis on Improving Standard Braking Systems to Aid Market Growth

Operators involved in the current market landscape have identified the need to improve the efficiency of standard braking equipment in automotive vehicles worldwide. While the automotive brake pad is predominantly made of three main materials: organic, metallic, and ceramic, stakeholders are not ruling out the possibility of deploying other materials to manufacture automotive brake pads. Research and development activities are in full swing to find novel materials that address the issues put forward by the existing braking systems and braking pads.

For instance, in April 2019, a group of researchers at the University of Toronto, Sharif University of Technology, and University of British Columbia introduced a new breaking system design, which is self-lubricating. The newly designed brakes are expected to prevent wear and tear, and offer superior frictional properties than the existing braking systems in the automotive market. While braking pad designs made from different materials offer a range of benefits and drawbacks based on multiple parameters, including noise, response time, design, cost, durability, and temperature while usage. However, apart from these parameters, the recently conducted research also takes into account other factors, including composite breakdown at high temperature, wear testing, durability, and friction.

The cutting-edge carbon fiber polymer brakes designed by researchers is expected to be a groundbreaking discovery in the automotive brake pad market. The advent of this technology is expected to trigger the development of smaller, cost-effective, and efficient brake pads with improved ability to withstand high temperatures and friction. Stakeholders in the current automotive brake pad market are expected to develop nanomaterials and combine them with polymers to create multifunctional composites to address a host of problems, including heat distribution, molecular level, friction, and wear.
