North America is the third-largest market in the world for disc brakes. The region has been experiencing a rapid growth in vehicle production in the recent years. This growth can be attributed to favorable economic conditions prevailing and the positive government initiatives like increasing trade among key countries in the region. These factors have been responsible for improving the economy as well as increasing the disposable income of consumers. This in turn has increased the demand for improved performance and luxury cars in the region. The changing road safety norms have reduced the stopping distance for vehicles, which has led to increasing need for disc brakes due to their advantage over traditional drum brakes.
Globally, Asia-Pacific is the fastest-growing market for disc brakes, followed by Europe and North America. The U.S and Mexico are the key markets for disc brakes in the North American region, due to the increasing production levels of automotive, in order to meet the growing demand from not only the domestic but also from the overseas market. The U.S. is the fastest-growing market, followed by Mexico. On the other hand, Canada has witnessed slower growth in the automobile industry and disc brake market as compared to the key countries in the region, as it is still recovering from the financial crisis of 2008-2009. The production level of automotive had reduced during this time. However, the country is now recovering for the crisis and expected to witness growth in the coming years.
The top players in the North American disc brake market are Hyundai Mobis, Akebono, TRW, Federal Mogul, and Aisin Seiki, with market shares of 14.5%, 12.0%, 10.5%, 5.2%, and 5.0% respectively.
