The drum brake is a braking system which uses a set of brake shoes which are pushed against the outer cover which is in the shape of a drum in order to stop the vehicle. Therefore it’s known as a drum brake. The major difference between a drum brake and a disc brake is that in a disc brake a set of disc pads are used which are pressed on the disc in order to stop the vehicle and on the other hand in a drum brake, a set of brake shoes are used to push the drum on which the wheel is mounted in order to stop.
The different components used in the drum brake are a braking plate, which provides a base for all the other components; a brake drum which rotates along with the wheel and axle and when the brake is applied, it pushes the inner surface of the drum which creates friction and stops the vehicle; a wheel cylinder which pushes the shoe on the drum by its two pistons on either end when pressure is applied from the main cylinder; and brake shoe, which is made of a sheet of metal and is the component which creates friction with the drum surface in order to stop the vehicle.
The major market for the drum brakes is Asia-Pacific region as it is the leader in vehicle production across the globe and also since the automobile market is dominated by small and cheaper cars. The second largest market for the drum brakes is the North America which is followed by Europe as the third largest market for drum brakes. The North American market for drum brakes is growing faster than that of European region as there is an increase in the vehicle production and also since Europe is still recovering from the financial crisis of 2009.
The Top Players of the Drum brake market are: Aisin Seiki, TRW, Akebono Nissin Kogyo, Brembo S.P.A with market shares of 25%, 14%, 13%, 11%, & 9% respectively.

Europe Drum Brake
The increasing demand for smaller and cheaper cars in major countries in the European region like Germany, Russia, and France has boosted the drum brake market. Also, since the price of disc brakes is much higher than drum brakes, consumers tend opt for the cheaper option. The European drum brake market was valued at $2.2 billion in 2013, to grow at 4.9% annually to reach $2.8 billion by 2018.
