Automotive Brake Fluid Market Synopsis:


The global automotive brake fluid market is estimated to witness a 5% CAGR during the forecast period.


Automotive brake fluid belongs to the hydraulic fluid family and is used in hydraulic clutch and brake in vehicles. Since hydraulic brakes have replaced mechanical brakes in today’s vehicles, the demand for brake fluid has been on the rise. Automotive brake fluid applies pressure on brakes by increasing the transfer force. In order to ensure smooth functioning of the brakes, brake fluids play an important role. They are designed in such a way that the rubber components in the overall brake systems are not damaged. These fluids need to be changed periodically, to improve the performance of the braking system.


Growing awareness regarding the importance of vehicle maintenance has driven the brake fluid market. Besides, advantages of these fluids, such as improving lubrication and increasing the effectiveness of brakes have also played a key role in the growth of the market.


However, due to their hydroscopic properties, brake fluids absorb moisture. Due to this, the components and parts that come in contact with these fluids could witness corrosion. This is expected to create obstacles to the market growth. However, major manufacturers, such as Castrol, BASF and Bosch are working on solutions to overcome this drawback.


The Prominent Players:


The prominent players in the global automotive brake fluid industry are Robert Bosch GmbH (Germany), The China National Petroleum Corporation (China), Castrol (UK), Exxon Mobil Corporation (U.S.), Fuchs Petrolub SE (Germany), Royal Dutch Shell plc (the Netherlands), China Petroleum & Chemical Corporation (China), Total S.A. (France), Chevron Corporation (U.S.), and Qingdao Copton Technology Company Limited (China).
