Industrial brakes market size is projected to reach US$ 2.05 billion by 2031 from US$ 1.30 billion in 2023. The market is expected to register a CAGR of 5.9% in 2023–2031.

An industrial brake is a frictional device used to halt a spinning inertia load or to retain a component in a fixed position. In most cases, the inertia load is caused by many spinning components that must be halted. To slow anything down, they transform the kinetic energy created by friction between two surfaces into heat. Industrial brakes differ from car brakes in that they are used in a variety of industrial machines. Industrial brakes work in all-weather situations, require less maintenance owing to fewer moving components, and are easy to modify for various applications. During the forecast period, all of these reasons are likely to boost the demand for industrial brakes across the world.

Industrial brakes provide numerous benefits, one of which is the low number of parts and spares needed. Other benefits include easy hygiene owing to the one-piece design, a high return on investment due to the extended life of industrial brakes, and the ability to work in harsh situations. Additionally, growing industrialization and increasing government investments in the industrial sectors to promote output are expected to have a substantial influence on the industrial brakes market during the projected period.

Industrial Brakes Market Drivers and Opportunities

Growth of the Global Manufacturing Sector

Since the beginning of the Industrial Revolution, technological advancements have led to tremendous surge in industrial production capacities; as a result, manufacturing is on the rise across the world. According to PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC), growing economies, labor quality, tax policies, regulatory environments, and transportation and energy prices are the factors that have catalyzed the comeback of this sector. As a result of the expanding manufacturing sector, the dependent markets, including mechanical equipment providers, are also flourishing. With the emergence of new categories of consumers in developing countries, manufacturers across the world are likely to have significant new prospects; further, innovations generate new demands, thus propelling the use of modern equipment and systems in manufacturing units.

Stringent Rules and Regulations Related to Industrial Machinery

Machines are necessary for the production process, but mishaps during their operations can result in burns, blindness, and amputation. Safeguarding, standardizing operating procedures, and thorough training may assist in keeping the staff safe and secure. Governments and organizations across the world are transforming their operations by implementing emission and safety standards in production facilities. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) fines for the infraction of safety standards totaled more than US$ 50 million in the fiscal year 2018. As a result, the US government is developing a long-term regulatory road plan for the flourishment of the manufacturing sector, escalating its contribution to the GDP.

Developments in Industrial Braking Technology

When designing equipment systems, it's crucial to think about how the braking system will affect the operation of subsequent machines. Fail-safe brakes assist in shutting off the machine’s movement quickly in accidents, performance failures, or power failures, among others. Companies are also working on hydraulic release brakes that are spring-loaded braking systems using hydraulic energy to produce adjustable torque. The need for industrial brakes is high in mining winches, overhead cranes, steel rolling systems, and other similar devices. Furthermore, warehousing, medical, steel mills, and food processing industries hold significant potential for the industrial brakes market. Companies are actively working on spring-applied brakes with high permitted braking energies, high torques, and wear resistance. For instance, Kor-Pak, an OEM and distributor of industrial brakes and clutches, is developing end-to-end braking systems for the mining and manufacturing industries.

Industrial Brakes Market Report Segmentation Analysis

Key segments that contributed to the derivation of the industrial brakes market analysis are temperature type, warehouse type, and application.

  • Based on type, the market is divided into mechanically applied brakes, hydraulically applied brakes, pneumatically applied brakes, electrically applied brakes, and others. Mechanically applied brakes apply force, most commonly friction, to slow or stop a machine or an object from moving. The force is applied to a body that is in rotational or linear motion, such as an axle, shaft, or wheel. Mechanical brakes are used in material handling, manufacturing, and other power transmission applications and are most commonly associated with automobiles. For engaging and disengaging shafts, mechanical brakes are frequently used in conjunction with a mechanical clutch. To decelerate, friction-based brakes use a coarse and tough substance (a brake lining) that is tightened or forced against a moving body. Friction-based braking creates a lot of heat and considerable noise, which degrades the involved surface areas.
  • Based on application, the global industrial brakes market is divided into holding brakes, dynamic and emergency brakes, and tension brakes. Motor-holding brakes are responsible for maintaining the motor's position when the power stage is turned off. The holding brake is neither a safety feature nor a maintenance brake. This brake is used in factory automation, medical equipment, elevators and escalators, construction equipment, robotics, and machine tool equipment. Many companies offer holding brakes for various applications and industrial environments. For example, Vortex Engineering Works provides spring-holding brakes for operations in the textile industry.
  • Depending upon the industry vertical, the market is divided into manufacturing, metal and mining, construction, power generation, marine and shipping, and others.
