Market Scenario


An automobile has to be driven on various road surfaces and extreme conditions. Therefore, the braking system of the vehicle is the most critical aspect, which allows the vehicle to avoid noise diving and settle evenly without any jerk.


Automotive brake valves, also known as load-sensing valves, calculate the amount of brake fluid pressure required to slow the rear wheels safely using the weight in the rear of a vehicle. Automotive brake valves, along with pushrods, need to be kept in good condition, as pushrods physically connect the brake pedal to the master hydraulic brake cylinder, which enhances the effectiveness and response time of the brake system. Automotive brake valves convert the pressure applied to a brake pedal into an essential force required for stopping a vehicle.


Different valves such as metering, residual, combination, and adjustable proportioning valve are used in the conversion from drum brakes to disc brakes and brake systems in general. The metering valve helps in maintaining the proper balance through controlling fluid flow control from the master cylinder causing rear drum brakes to engage just before front disc brakes. Residual valves help maintain constant pressure on the brake system. A combination valve includes a metering valve, a proportioning valve, and a pressure differential switch to maintain pressure and minimize rear wheels lockup.


The Global Automotive Brake Valve Market size is projected to reach approx. USD 5 Billion by 2025 from an estimated USD 498 Million, with 5% CAGR from 2019 to 2025.
