Automotive Brake Fluid Market Trends




  • Increasing demand from light commercial vehicles is driving the market growth




All types of vehicles, including motorcycles, tractors, light and large commercial vehicles, and passenger cars, employ brake fluid, a form of hydraulic fluid. Electric cars make use of brake fluid. The current rise in the manufacture of electric vehicles is mostly due to government programs supporting low-emission and environmentally friendly automobiles as well as rising consumer awareness. Furthermore, car customers are finding it simpler to finance electric vehicles because to falling battery prices and government incentives.


Tesla, General Motors, Toyota, BME, Nissan, Ford, and Volkswagen are just a few of the international automakers making investments in electric vehicles. In the following five to ten years, these investments are anticipated to pay off. Due to the slowdown in the automobile industry during the course of the forecast period, the demand for brake fluids is anticipated to increase significantly.


There is a rising need for high performance fluids for automotive applications due to ongoing innovations and technological improvements in the automotive sector. Leading businesses strive to provide cutting-edge solutions that adhere to industry standards and requirements. For instance, BASF's HYDRAULAN® braking fluids are created to balance the strict safety standards needed by customers with the industry's present and future needs. High thermal stability, enhanced metal corrosion prevention, very low viscosity at low temperatures, improved elastomer compatibility, and superior lubrication are all features of the solution.


Valvoline announced the introduction of XEV in 2021, the company's first hybrid, plug-in hybrid, and pure electric car product line to be based in China. A collection of hybrid and electric vehicle fluids known as XEV includes brake fluids along with engine oil, battery protection fluid, and gearbox fluid. A product line for electric vehicles, including Valvoline EV Brake Fluid, was introduced by Valvoline in 2019. The formulations were designed for modern anti-lock brake systems (ABS), electronic stability programs (ESP), and advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS), and they had high wet and dry boiling points, brake fade reduction, noise elimination, and low viscosity at low temperatures. Thus, driving the Automotive Brake Fluid market revenue.


Automotive Brake Fluid Market Segment Insights:


Automotive Brake Fluid: Fluid Type Insights


The Automotive Brake Fluid Market segmentation, based on Fluid Type, includes petroleum and non-petroleum.
