A braking resistor or dynamic braking resistors (DBR's) work as alternative current (AC) variable frequency drives (VFDs) to disintegrate energy generated in the motor with the help of braking torque applied to stop the engine. This resistor has its application in the DC bus, which requires a voltage of around 800 volts when the braking conditions are applied. Dynamic braking resistors are used in DC drive systems and inverters, and also used as the electric traction motors in the railroad vehicle as generators while slowing down the locomotive. This dynamic resistor is also known as "rheostatic," as it generates electrical power, which is regenerative if the power is returned to the supply line and dissipated as heat in brake grid resistors. This resistor generates a braking torque and absorbs the extra energy generated at the time of stopping the electric motors. These resistors have their application across variable-speed drive systems such as cranes, elevators, and trains. Owing to the growing urbanization and industrial growth, energy consumption has increased manifolds. Therefore, to meet the rising requirements for power, the development of sub-transmission and intrastate transmission networks is increasing. The escalating demand for energy & power, owing to growing household incomes and increasing manufacturing and heavy industries, is boosting the market of braking resistor. Renewable energy plays a significant role for offering access to electricity. According to the International Energy Agency (IEA), the electricity demand is projected to grow at 2.1% per year by 2040 across the world. The demand for electricity in the Southeast Asia has been among the highest across the globe; it has potential for the renewable energy sector. All these factors are anticipated to boost the growth of the braking resistors market during the forecast period.
Europe dominated the braking resistors market in 2019, and is expected to continue its dominance during the forecast period. Tech investments in Europe increased in 2019 despite the economic slowdown caused by the tension between the UK and European Union (EU). Automotive manufacturers have 304 vehicle assembly plants and production plants in 27 countries across Europe. In 2019, the production of 4,371,499 units of commercial and passenger vehicles was reported. Growing production of commercial and passenger vehicles surges the demand for integration of braking resistors.
The emergence and rapid spread of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) has paralyzed numerous countries including developed as well as developing. The continuous surge in count of infected patients is threatening several industries across the globe. As of December 2020, the US, India, Brazil, Russia, and France are a few of the worst affected countries in terms of COVID-19 confirmed cases and reported deaths. The outbreak is adversely affecting economies and industries in various countries owing to lockdowns, travel bans, and business shutdowns. Moreover, the demand for braking resistors is decreasing at a prominent rate because the key braking resistors purchasing countries are lowering their investments in these components and utilizing a fair percentage of their budget to combat the COVID-19 outbreak. The temporary shutdown of manufacturing facilities is also hindering the growth of the braking resistors market. The continuity of the COVID-19 spread would restrain the growth of the braking resistors market players in coming years.

The major players in the automotive sector are investing in the production of electric vehicles. Recently, remarkable collaborations have been undertaken between automakers and tech companies to develop technologically advanced electric vehicles. For instance, in December 2019, Fiat Chrysler collaborated with PSA Group, a French automaker to focus on electric vehicles' development. Further, increasing awareness about the rising levels of greenhouse gas emissions and the negative impacts of conventional vehicles are the major factors that encourage key players to invest in electric vehicles. Several major companies are looking forward to invest in startups, which can eventually help them co-create products in the future. For example, in March 2019, Hyundai, an automotive manufacturer headquartered in Seoul, South Korea, with its subsidiary Kia, invested US$ 300 million in Ola Electric to manufacture mobility solutions and cars specifically for the Indian population. The electric vehicles use regenerative braking, which recovers energy lost during braking and sends it back to the battery. As an alternative, it is beneficial to use a braking resistor to discharge the excess energy produced. These resistors are useful in case of any electrical fault, as well as to reduce the servicing costs due to diminished wear on the friction braking system. Moreover, the energy dissipated during dynamic braking into the resistor is also being used to heat the vehicle's trailer or cabin; therefore, decreasing the requirement for electrical heating that places an extra load on the battery.
Based on resistor element type, the global braking resistors market is segmented into wire-wound, edge-wound, stamped grid, and others. Wire-wound resistor offers significant advantages such as excellent power dissipation, shock-proofing, and stable resistance. This resistor is used across several applications, basically as a power resistor, where larger amounts of power are dissipated. The wire-wound resistor includes a resistive wire, which is wound around a nonconductive material. Generally, the resistive wire is insulated so that adjacent wires do not short together.

Based on end-user, the braking resistors market is segmented into oil and gas, mining, marine, automobile and railways, energy, and others. Rise in demand for passenger cars and commercial vehicles, mostly in developing countries, is bolstering the need for braking resistors to control the speed and use the excess amount of energy dissipated. In 2014, China reported the production of 24 million vehicles, which is anticipated to increase and reach to around 364 and 607 million by 2030 and 2050, respectively. Several manufacturers worldwide are involved in developing different models of vehicles that demand the integration of braking resistors. Therefore, the rising integration of braking resistors across the automotive and railways market accelerates the braking resistors market growth.
