Brake-by-Wire System Market Dynamics

Increasing Demand from Electric and Hybrid Vehicles Driving Brake-by-Wire System Market Growth

The brake-by-wire system is finding wide application in hybrid and electric vehicles. Moreover, brake-by-wire system is also common in the form of electric park brake that is widely used across mainstream vehicles. Automotive companies with launch of electric cars are using brake-by-wire system on a large scale. Recently, Audi released E-tron electric vehicle with brake-by-wire system which is electrohydraulic. Toyota’s Prius Hybrid and Estima Hybrid are also using brake-by-wire system.

Owing to the rise in electric vehicle development and sales, manufacturers in the brake-by-wire system market are also focusing on developing advanced system to offer a unique product and increase sales. For instance, Continental developed new brake-by-wire system with the brake technology that is based on 12V electrical system.

Increased Efficiency and Effectiveness to Drive Demand in Brake-by-Wire System Market

The braking efficiency and effectiveness offered by brake-by-wire system as compared to the traditional braking system is driving the demand in the brake-by-wire system market. Manufacturers are developing brake-by-wire systems including sub-systems and electronic components such as actuators, sensors, and control unit to analyze vehicle data correctly.

The brake-by-wire system also helps to gather vehicle data from different sensors in the vehicle which allow brake-by-wire system to react quickly, thereby, reducing the stopping distance. The features and innovative technology in brake-by-wire systems makes it more efficient, this is leading to the wide adoption of brake-by-wire system by automotive manufacturers.

Brake System Failure Emerging as the Challenge in Brake-by-Wire System Market

Some sensors in the brake-by-wire cars are safety-critical components and failure of these sensors disrupt the vehicle function. For instance, failure in brake pedal sensor and wheel speed sensor in vehicle and missing the data in these sensors can affect the functionality of vehicle control system. Majority of the brake-by-wire systems used in the vehicles are designed to use existing sensors that have been proven to be dependable in the brake system components.

Moreover, the brake control software holds the high potential risk for the failure of the brake system. The National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) has recorded over 200 cases of recurring failure in the brake system. Moreover, manufacturers in the brake-in-wire system guarding the confidentiality of the system software and design are restricting the independent validation of the brake systems.
