Global Air Brake System Market Drivers, Restraints & Opportunities, 2018-2026 -

DUBLIN--()--The "Air Brake System Market by Type, Component and Vehicle Type: Global Opportunity Analysis and Industry Forecast, 2018-2026" report has been added to's offering.

The global air brake system market size was valued at $4.8 billion in 2018, and is projected to reach $6.6 billion by 2026, registering a CAGR of 3.57% from 2018 to 2026.

An air brake or a compressed air brake system is a frictional braking system used in vehicles in which compressed air is being pressed on a piston which further applies the pressure to the brake pad, eventually leading the vehicle to come to rest. Air brakes are used in large & heavy vehicles, particularly those having multiple trailers which must be linked to the brake system, such as trucks, buses, trailers and semi-trailers and railroad trains. George Westinghouse first developed air brakes for use in railway service. The air brake system have a wider application in service brakes, parking brakes, and includes wider range of components such as control pedal, an air storage tank and various other components.

The air brake system works when the compressed air presses the piston thereby applying pressure on the brake pads, eventually causing the vehicle to stop. It comprises several components including a compressor, governor, tank, air dryer, foot valve, brake chamber, and slack adjuster. Currently, there are two types of air brake system commonly available in the market which are effective and efficient to provide safety while driving. The air brake system is integrated in heavy and commercial vehicles to apply more massive brake effort. The increased demand for air brakes has positively impacted the air brake system market. Air brakes systems are anticipated to witness significant growth over the years, owing to rise in awareness among consumers about vehicle safety and security while driving.
