The Europe Anti-Lock Braking System market is anticipated to register a CAGR greater than 6.1% during the forecast period (2020 - 2025).
Nowadays, Anti-lock braking system (ABS) is used in every modern car. It automatically provides optimum braking force short of lockup. The computers modulate the brake pressure to make sure that all wheels maintain traction, allowing them to brake and steer at the same time. Because of that, it is a beneficial technology for avoiding collisions.
Europe is known for its swift and stringent adaption towards road safety equipment. Countries such as Germany and the United Kingdom have mandated entry-level vehicles as well to install ABS systems, just as importantly as seatbelts we today see in every car.
However, ABS in 2-wheelers, especially in cost-conscious markets, sometimes offer options for a single channel, with only a front-wheel equipped with an ABS. Also, entry-level cars are not provided ABAS with a higher safety system. However, with emerging technologies and growing government policies, entry-level and 2- wheelers will see a higher adoption towards ABS systems since results have shown that even a lower ABAS equipped system may increase braking distances.
Key Market Trends
Autonomous Emergency Braking System Could Drive the Future Growth of The Market
For 4-wheelers, research indicates ABS is quite useful, reducing the overall crash-involvement rate by 6% in passenger cars and by 8% in light weight vehicles for non-fatal crashes, which is statistically significant. However, for fatal crashes, Antilock brake systems (ABS) have close to a zero-net effect on the crash involvement, and ABS brakes do not appear to have any effect on rear-end collisions.
In 2-wheelers, 93% of motorcycle falls could have been avoided or reduce the severity of the accident. Also, a reduction in fatal and severe injuries to motorcycle drivers by 8 to 10%. suggests that ABS might reduce the number of crash victims especially on wet pavements, in improving overall vehicle stability during braking, preserving the ability to steer, and reducing stopping distances on many surfaces
But, earlier information from the camera or LIDAR sensors was relatively slow, and these systems were only able to brake sufficiently to avoid a collision with a relative velocity of around 15 kph and termed as “City-AEB” or “low-speed AEB.” Early systems were only able to detect cars, however with growing advancements in the ABS market, object recognition of more modern systems now includes Powered Two-Wheeler, pedestrians, and cyclists can operate faster. They can, therefore, detect obstacles at higher travel speeds. Thus, the Autonomous Emergency Braking System could drive the future growth of the market.
Germany Will Hold the Largest Market Share in Europe
Continuous efforts are being made by governments across the world to reduce the rate of accidents. Mandating anti-lock braking systems market in all automobiles will remain the driving the factor
European Transport Safety Council (ETSC) called for Automated Emergency Braking systems to be fitted as standard on new cars in the EU. Although options were available as an extra feature, especially on low-cost vehicles. But, ETSC believes that ABS technology, along with Electronic Stability Control (ESC), should be compulsory for cars in the EU governments across the world to reduce the rate of accidents.
In 2016, The European Union parliament mandated anti-lock braking systems as the standard equipment. In 2019 round 91.1% of registered motorcycles were had anti-lock brake systems as per The Insurance Institute of Highway Safety reported. Clearly the number has gone up compared to the standard form of equipment with 0.2% of motorcycles in 2002.
In Germany, E-bikes are becoming popular by the law, and demand for more powerful e-bikes need a powerful braking system. As a result of this, ABS could make an impact in the E-bikes market as well.
The Europe Automotive Anti-Lock Braking System Market is consolidated with an already existing player. The major players are Robert Bosch GmbH, Autoliv Inc., Continental Reifen Deutschland GmbH, DENSO Corporation, and ZF Friedrichshafen AG, among others. As the demand for Anti-Lock Braking is growing in the region, the OEM manufacturers are trying to have the edge over its competitors by making joint-ventures, partnerships, launching new products with advanced technology. For instance,
In IIHS crash tests, the BMW 5 Series earned its reputation by offering standard with automatic emergency braking, forward collision warning, lane departure warning, blind-spot monitoring, daytime pedestrian detection, rear cross-traffic alert, adaptive cruise control, a rearview camera, and front and rear parking sensors.
