The effect of COVID-19 is anticipated to strongly affect the automotive industry due to the high dependency of different global industries for imports. Moreover, the pandemic situation has led to the closure of several non-essential businesses reducing the demand for industrial goods in the world, which in turn, is impeding the automotive component manufacturing industries worldwide. Since the COVID-19 pandemic is diminishing the production activities across aerospace, automotive, railways, and other industries worldwide, the demand for disc brake equipment is decreasing in the short-term. The COVID-19 effects are majorly observed in manufacturing units which are currently working with a 50% workforce. The global supply chain has at the same time slowed down due to restrictions on national borders. Regarding the rotary tiller market as production has slowed down as only half the workforce is working its borderline struggling to meet up with the demands. This is disrupting the supply chain of disc brakes. However, the automotive disc brake market is expected to gain its original momentum by the mid of 2021.

As per Growth Market Reports industry analyst Vidya Jadhav, “The Automotive Disc Brake Market is anticipated to witness significant growth during the forecast period 2020-2027 due to rising automobile production activities across key economies such as China, India, U.S., and Germany. The advancements in disc brakes are anticipated to create lucrative opportunity during the forecast period.”
