The demand for automotive carbon brake rotors is expected to grow at a moderate CAGR of 7.6% by 2032, according to a study by Future Market Insights. The market is projected to grow from $5.5213 billion in 2022 to $11.4859 billion in 2032. The growth in sales is attributed to the lightweight, heat-resistant, high-performing and more durable properties of carbon brake rotors.
Carbon brake rotors are the most common type used in the automotive industry, they are less likely to warp or deform, and may last longer than traditional brakes. Other drivers for the growth in demand include less brake dust, better performance in wet and dry conditions, and strong demand for racing cars, bikes, high-performance cars, and heavy trucks.
The largest share of the global automotive carbon brake rotors market is occupied by carbon ceramic matrix. Inorganic silicon carbide mixes, fibres, and resins are used to create carbon ceramic brake rotors.
