Automation and Braking Systems: Predictions for the Global Industrial Brakes Market

If you take a good look at the business world around you, you’ll see that the demand for automation is climbing in many sectors. And the global industrial brakes market is one of them.

The truth is, because of automation, the global industrial brakes market is expected to grow. The question is, how exactly will this growth look, and what does it mean for you?

Here’s a rundown on all of the future predictions for braking systems in 2020 and beyond.

Let’s jump in!

The Future of Global Industrial Braking Systems

The global market for industrial braking systems should witness steady growth due to the increased adoption of automation and, as a result, industrial robotics.

This growth will primarily be visible in Asia-Pacific, which is the biggest market for industrial brakes. However, North America and Europe will also witness significant growth in this market due to growing first-rate technology systems.

When it comes to the type of brake that will be most popular, the electrically applied brake will likely be the brake market’s biggest category. Likewise, the holding brake will probably be most in demand based on application.

Additional Considerations

With technology evolving today, braking systems can easily be integrated with IoT or the Internet of Things. 

With IoT, you can automatically apply your brakes during emergencies. Also, you can fit industrial brakes with high-quality proximity sensors, then place them in each industrial work station.

These braking systems will be in demand in various industrial areas, including the following:

  • Shipping
  • Mining
  • Energy
  • Material handling
  • Escalators¬†
  • Lifts

The end-user industries of power generation, coal handling, steel, and oil and gas are also expected to create significant growth opportunities in this market.

Furthermore, the increased adoption of innovative and new products is augmenting the market. These products include, for example, advanced material rotors and brake shoes. They also include backstopping clutches. 

The benefit of these well-designed automatic brakes is that they can keep your equipment users safe.
