Automotive Brake Wheel Cylinder Market Size, Share & Industry Analysis, By Type (Single Piston and Double Piston), By Application Type (Passenger Cars and Commercial Vehicles) and Regional Forecast, 2024-2032

Region :Global | Report ID: FBI105082 | Status : Ongoing



Automotive brake wheel cylinder is an integral part of hydraulic drum brake system. The brake wheel cylinder is located at the top of each wheel. This cylinder performs the significant function of transporting the brake shoe into contact by applying force on the shoes for stopping the vehicle. Generally, the automotive brake wheel cylinder is associated with the shoe by a small rod which is in the shape of a bird's beak. Moreover, the automotive brake wheel cylinder involves two pistons that are situated on both sides of the cylinder. Each piston is attached to the brake shoe by a shaft and is sealed with a rubber. Earlier, the automotive brake wheel cylinders were usually made of cast iron. However, cast iron is more likely to rust, therefore aluminium automotive brake wheel cylinders dominate the market. Furthermore, there two types of automotive brake wheel cylinders available in the market, including brake wheel cylinders with integrated pressure regulators and those without any integrated pressure regulators. These cylinders are a vital element of the drum brakes and require replacement after a definite period of time in order to maintain adequate brake performance.

Key Market Driver -

Availability of light weight cylinders is expected to drive the growth of the market in the forecast period.

Key Market Restraint -

Growing popularity of disc brakes in vehicles may hinder the growth of the market during the forecast period.

Market Segmentation:

Globally, the Automotive Brake Wheel Cylinder market is segmented by type, by application type, and by geographic coverage.
