Both original equipment (OE) and aftermarket ground (or road) transportation applications (light vehicles and medium- and heavy-duty trucks) represent the largest single market for friction materials, generally accounting for REDACTED of the total, or about REDACTED in 2017. All forms of transportation ranging from bicycles to 18-wheel trucks utilize some form of friction materials in their braking systems. Friction products are also used in a number of industries ranging from household appliances to heavy construction equipment. Railway, construction and other off-road, oilfield and other industrial applications collectively accounted for REDACTED of the total friction products market, or nearly
REDACTED in 2017
Another significant market for friction materials is the aircraft/aerospace segment. This segment accounted for REDACTED of the total market, or nearly REDACTED in 2017. Its prospects are improving with a new cycle of orders, aided by rising air transport demand and new airliners.
During the next five years, the ground transportation segment will experience steady growth in the developed nations, whereas in the emerging markets, light-vehicle applications in particular offer opportunities. The aerospace market is expected to grow, as the rising demand from airlines helps to offset declining expenditures on military aircraft.
Other applications present a mixed picture. Increasing global income and the rise of middle classes in developing nations offer opportunities for friction materials in appliances. An eventual recovery of capital spending in combination with rapid industrialization will also provide business opportunities for friction materials in industrial machinery. Oil well, construction machinery, railway and other industrial applications will offer more modest opportunities. By 2023, the global friction products business is expected to approach REDACTED, a CAGR of REDACTED between 2018 and 2023.
Within certain industries, the mixture of friction products is changing dramatically. Asbestos and NAO products represent mature technologies and will offer only modest business opportunities during the next five years. Sintered and other metallic products will offer similar growth opportunities. Carboncarbon composites will offer the best opportunities. This is partially driven by the dynamism of the aircraft/aerospace business but also by the inherent performance characteristics of this technology. This will engender renewed opportunities for carbon fibers, partially oxidized polyacrylonitrile (POA), aramid, ceramic, metal and other advanced fibers.
New technologies, including carbon metal matrix composites (MMCs) consisting of metal base fibers of aluminum, magnesium, titanium, copper and alloys as well as carbon-silicon carbide (C-SiC) and other advanced ceramics are emerging and gaining acceptance. Methyl siloxane and other polymeric siloxane resins have been developed for brake applications and offer promise, as do scorching techniques.
Representing a mature business, the global market for friction materials is served by a number of companies, most of which are specialized, competing at various levels. Friction materials are produced by a large diverse industry. As the materials that have gone into friction products have changed, so have the companies that produce these materials. Conglomerates have swallowed up many of the smaller and medium-size companies. Both large and small corporations now produce friction materials. Companies range in size from a half-dozen employees to more than 1,000.
