Key players dominating the global automotive brake booster market are Bosch, Continental, Denso, FTE Automotive, and AISIN. This market research report presents a detailed segmentation of the market by vehicle type (passenger cars and commercial vehicles), by end-users (OEM and aftermarket), and by geography (Americas, APAC, and EMEA).

Global market overview of automotive brake boosters

At present, the automotive market is increasingly replacing mechanical and hydraulic systems with electronic systems in vehicles. The main aim underlying this mechanism is to reduce the weight of the vehicle and incorporate additional features such as safety and comfort. One of the most trending applications in the vehicle check area is the brake-by-wire technology for the automotive brakes system. Based on a fault-tolerant structure, this system will have a pedal module, a dependable power system, a central supervisory control system, four intelligent braking actuators, and interfaces to other on-board vehicle systems. Such advanced braking technologies will significantly boost the growth prospects for the brake boosters in the coming years. Technavio’s automotive brake booster market forecast predicts the global automotive brake booster market to grow at a CAGR of around 9% by 2020.

APAC will continue to dominate the automotive brake booster market during the forecast period and is expected to occupy more than 54% of the overall market share by 2020. Much of the region’s growth comes from the rising production of auto parts and the presence of major car brands. Vendors are focusing to develop vehicles that are fast and safe, which has pushed them to create advanced brakes in vehicles. The increasing government regulations for improving vehicle safety will strongly contribute to the demand for automotive brake boosters in APAC over the next four years. 

Competitive landscape and key vendors

This market is highly fragmented and comprises a large number of vendors. Competition in this market is expected to intensify with stringent safety norms and increase in awareness among the people. Regions like Europe, America, and Japan are the most dominating automotive economies which display the highest adoption of advanced brake systems and growth in the global market as most of the vehicles manufactured in these regions are fitted with brake boosters along with latest braking technologies.

Leading vendors in the market are: 

  • Bosch
  • Continental
  • Denso
  • FTE Automotive

Other prominent vendors in the automotive brake booster market are Cardone, Dorman, and Federal-Mogul.

Segmentation by vehicle type and analysis of the automotive brake booster market

  • Passenger cars
  • Commercial vehicles

Passenger cars including hatchbacks, sedans, and SUVs, are the largest adopters of brake boosters. The growing demand for active vehicle safety technologies such as anti-lock braking system (ABS), traction control system (TCS), electronic stability program (ESP), and regenerative braking are pushing manufacturers to integrate these technologies with high-end brake booster systems. Factors such as stringent safety norms and a higher emphasis on performance and efficiency of the vehicle have propelled several manufacturers to focus on brake booster technology in the passenger cars segment.

Segmentation by end users and analysis of the automotive brake booster market

  • OEMS
  • Aftermarket

Original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) will dominate the automotive brake booster market during the forecast period by occupying more than 86% of the overall market revenue. OEMs are attracting customers by providing safety-enhancing features like brake boosters, airbags, ABS, or EBD in their vehicles, especially in emerging countries, which hold tremendous potential. Some of the leading OEMs have developed advanced brake booster-based technologies that provide the optimum level of vehicle safety while braking. For instance, Mercedes-Benz offers brake assist function, monitors vehicle ahead, and optimizes the applied brake power as soon as the driver steps on the brakes, based on intelligent emergency braking if the automotive sensors sense it.

A brake booster is a round, black canister located at the rear of the engine compartment, on the driver's side of the car. It uses vacuum from the engine to enhance the force that the foot applies to the master cylinder. Brake boosters are primarily of two types – vacuum booster and hydraulic brake booster. A vacuum brake booster is a metal canister that contains a clever valve and a diaphragm. A rod passing through the canister connects to the master cylinder's piston on one end and the pedal linkage on the other. The hydraulic brake booster, on the other hand, uses hydraulic pressure generated by the power steering pump to provide the required power assistance. It is an enhanced function supported by the Electronic Stability Control Unit (ESC) in a vehicle's braking system.
