Automotive Carbon Ceramic Brakes Market – Insights

Automotive carbon ceramic brakes or ceramic composite brakes are made up of ceramic fibers, filler material and bonding agents. Moreover, these brakes may have small amounts of copper fibers. These kind of brakes are mostly used in high performance vehicles.

Advantages of automotive carbon ceramic brakes over other brakes such as iron or steel brakes are fueling growth of the global automotive carbon ceramic brakes market. Automotive carbon ceramic brakes provides great braking performance over the other brakes due to its ceramic properties. Properties of ceramic compounds helps to reduce heat and provide faster recovery after braking which helps the vehicle to maintain a strong performance even after repeated braking. Moreover, compared to other brakes automotive carbon ceramic brakes produce less amount of dust which is light in color and cannot stick to the wheels of the vehicle. In comparison with other brakes, automotive carbon ceramic brakes are durable, reliable, light weight and prevent corrosion. Automotive carbon ceramic brakes offer outstanding performance in both wet and dry conditions.

The increasing demand of luxurious as well as high performance vehicles from brands such as Lamborghini, Ferrari, Audi, BMW, Mercedes, GM Corvette, Porsche, Bugatti, and Bentley among others is propelling growth of the automotive carbon ceramic brakes market. The automotive carbon ceramic brakes are preferred by various manufacturers of luxurious and high performance vehicles owing to the properties that carbon ceramic possess.
