The research study by Technavio on the global motorcycle brake-by-wire system market for 2017-2021 provides a detailed industry analysis based on anti-lock braking system (ABS) type (one-channel ABS and multiple-channel ABS) and geography (APAC, EMEA, and the Americas).

The Americas currently dominate the motorcycle BBW market, but APAC is expected to grow swiftly at a CAGR of nearly 83% and establish itself as the dominant market segment by 2021. The booming two-wheeler market in APAC is expected to be the key driver of the motorcycle BBW system market.

Technavio analysts highlight the following three factors that are contributing to the growth of the global motorcycle brake-by-wire system market:

  • Cost benefits of BBW technology from end-user and OEM perspectives
  • Lightweighting by elimination of mechanical linkages
  • More accurate, precise, and quicker response than mechanical systems

Cost benefits of BBW technology from end-user and OEM perspectives

The brake wire technology provides freedom from the mechanical linkages and significantly lowers the cost of a vehicle and allows for more efficient packaging. This reduces the costs of both the engineering and the manufacturing costs,” says Siddharth Jaiswal, a lead analyst at Technavio for automotive electronics research.

BBW systems are beneficial to manufacturers because electronic systems require fewer components when compared to mechanical linkages. Traditional mechanical components such as the steering column, intermediate shafts, pumps, hoses, vacuum servos, belts, coolers, and master cylinders are removed from the vehicle when a BW system is used.

Lightweighting by elimination of mechanical linkages

The impact of the vehicular weight on the ride dynamics, fuel consumption, and emissions has been the cause of various technological advances in the motorcycle market. The adoption of by-wire systems results in the replacement of the traditional mechanical components with electro-mechanical and electronic parts, which makes the vehicle lighter, safer, and more compact. Key lightweight strategies include component redesign, reduction in the number of parts of a motorcycle, manufacturing process innovation, and substitution of base materials.

More accurate, precise, and quicker response than mechanical systems

Brake-by-wire systems use sensors like the magnetic Hall-effect and optics based sensors work by detecting a change in the magnetic field or the interference of beams of light. None of these require mechanical or physical contact and are, therefore, not subjected to mechanical forces, thereby greatly minimizing or eliminating wear and tear.

The latest sensors not only last longer, but also provide more accurate, precise, and better response time for brake wire systems when compared to their mechanical counterparts. Such crucial advantages of the brake wire system are leading to its widespread adoption,” says Siddharth.
