Brake system is an essential component of vehicle and thus require continuous scrutiny from the manufacturers. Brake pads are used in disc brakes while brake shoes are used in drum brakes. Brake pads convert kinetic energy to thermal energy of the car with the use of friction. Brake shoes are used to offer friction to the brake system. Brake shoes can be recycled or re-manufactured as compared to the brake pads. Track control arm is a link between suspension, which comprises wheel and the chassis. Track control arm needs to be replaced within due course of time in order to avoid any damage. Also, due to worn out of ball joint, the replacement need for control arm occurs.
Globally, the manufacturers are focused on developing brake pads, shoes and track control arm to ensure safety measures, durability and driver comfort. On the basis of vehicle usage, engine performance and vehicle weight brake pads and brake shoes are installed on the vehicle. This is intended primarily to ensure efficient braking facilities at high speeds, extended service life to offer better resistance to wear and less brake noise. Growing demand for miniaturisation of components is one of the key factors bolstering the brake pads, shoes and track control arm market growth across the globe. Also, increasing automobile production in countries such as India offer diverse opportunities for players to invest in. This is further attributed to demand for premium products and new entrants especially entering the brake pads aftermarket.
