2015 European Category Management Report: Brake Pads and Rotors Aftermarket : Rising Brake Pad Costs Will Drive Manufacturer-level Revenue

The European brakes pads and rotors aftermarket will be driven by the growing age of vehicles and the rising prices. The commoditised market will register flat but stable growth; the sale of premium brake pads will be higher than brake rotors due to the scope of differentiation. The overall prices of brake pads will rise due to the demand for premium brake pads, whereas that of brake rotors will remain flat. However, the Euro crisis will translate into higher demand for budget-line brake components. Overall, rising prices will drive manufacturer level revenue from 2015 to 2021.

Key Findings

Manufacturer-level revenue totalled approximately € billion in 2014 and will surpass the € billion mark within a few years
Total Brake Pads and Rotors Aftermarket: Key Takeaways, Europe, 2014

Total manufacturer-level revenue will increase from € million in 2014 to approximately € million in 2021, with rising prices for brake pads driving most of the growth.

Unit shipment will increase marginally due to the declining service life of brake rotors, which are most likely to be replaced with each brake job performed. However, this will be largely offset by decreased driving activity due to the lingering effects of the Euro financial crisis.

Manufacturer-level prices for brake pads will increase steadily at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of % (2014-2021), while prices for brake rotors will remain comparatively flat at a CAGR of %.

Warehouse distributors make up the largest sales channel (approximately % of manufacturer-level revenue), while automobile dealerships in the original equipment service (OES) channel account for about one-third of brake component sales.

In 2014, the top manufacturers accounted for about 30% of the total revenue. They are Federal-Mogul Corporation, TMD FRICTION HOLDINGS GMBH, Bosch Auto Parts, Continental AG, and ZF TRW. However, they face increasing competition from offshore manufacturers and direct importers.
