  1. 1. Increasing Age of Vehicles Sustains Growth in North American Brake Rotors, Drums, and Calipers Aftermarket Research PREVIEW for the North American Brake Rotors, Drums, and Calipers Aftermarket
  2. 2. Sample of Key Highlights  Total manufacturer-level revenue will increase by 2.3% annually over the 2013-2020 period.  The average manufacturer-level price is expected to increase by only 0.2% annually, reaching $14.48 per unit by 2020.  Warehouse distributors (WD) represent half of the total revenue (50.5% of 2013 revenue), but large retail chains continue to gain share.  Brake Parts Inc., CARDONE Industries, and Winhere Brake Parts were the top suppliers in 2013.

  4. 4. Key Conclusions and Future Outlook The large volume of low-cost imported products in the aftermarket makes it difficult to drive market growth higher. 4 Parameters Current Future Market Status • Market fully recovered from the 2008 to 2009 financial crisis (economic recession) that had caused vehicle owners to decrease non-essential maintenance activity • Stable growth rates • Stable growth of 2 to 4% annually, based mainly on increasing unit shipments • Older vehicles supporting demand growth Pricing • Rotor prices declining • Drum prices up due to flat, declining demand • Caliper prices flat • Prices to remain flat or slightly decreasing for high-volume rotor SKUs • Prices up 1 to 2% annually for drums and calipers Technology • Increasing installation of all-disc brakes • Use of drum brakes continues to decline • Continued market share decline of drum brake components Source: Frost & Sullivan
  5. 5. Key Conclusions and Future Outlook (continued) Some suppliers are reducing the number of product lines they offer in order to increase profits. 5 Parameters Current Future Product Positioning • Rotors: two lines for most suppliers (economy and premium). Original part may be sold as premium. • Drums: single line for most suppliers. OES also carries original part for warranty. • Most suppliers offer loaded calipers line (with brake pads) in addition to a standard semi- loaded offering. • Brand consolidation, with more manufacturers and distributors offering a single rotors line Key Competitive Factors • Price • Quality • All-makes-and-models coverage • Price • Quality • All-makes-and-models coverage Source: Frost & Sullivan
