In automotive industry, carbon brake rotors are mostly used in high performance cars, motor sports vehicles, and heavy vehicles which requires advanced braking system. Carbon brake rotors are designed to withstand the intense heat that occurs during the braking. Carbon brake rotors are costly than standard cast iron brake rotors but are still used as they are high performing, light weight, and more durable. There are two types of carbon brake rotors; carbon-carbon brake rotor and carbon-ceramic brake rotor. These types of brake rotors are used in number of high performance cars manufactured by Ferrari SpA, McLaren, Aston Martin Lagonda Ltd., Bentley Motors Ltd., Automobili Lamborghini SpA, Bugatti Automobiles SAS, Alfa Romeo Automobiles SpA, Porsche AG, and Corvette among others.
Global Automotive Carbon Brake Rotors Market Dynamics:
The major factors driving the automotive carbon brake rotors market includes; lightweight of carbon brake rotors, less resistant to warping or deformation, which means that they should last longer than traditional brakes, high demand in racing cars, bikes, and high performance cars & heavy vehicles, less brake dust, and improved performance in both wet & dry conditions. The restraint for automotive carbon brake rotor is its high cost as compared with traditional brake rotor used. The automotive carbon brake rotor is mostly used in super cars, or high performance vehicles where cost is not considered as a constraint. These type of brake rotors are not used in mass produced vehicles which are cost sensitive, therefore limiting its usage to high performance vehicles and motor sports vehicles only.
