Carbon Brush market was valued at USD 2,310.5 million in 2022 and is poised to grow at a CAGR of 2.1 % over 2023-2029. Carbon Brush is a small block of carbon utilized to transfer current between the immovable and moving components of an electric motor and generator. The copper wires used to make carbon brushes facilitate the flow of electrical current through the loop that rotates objects. The ability of these brushes to withstand high temperatures is another crucial aspect of their utility as a product. In the global carbon brush market, the signal and power transmission segments hold the largest market. In windmills, metallurgy, and elevators, carbon brushes are frequently employed for signal and power. The increasing consumer interest in passenger vehicles armed with smart technologies in the automotive industry is driving the carbon brush market. The development of worldwide carbon brush is expected to be significantly influenced by the adoption of electrical hand tools in many machine-based industries. Moreover, the ongoing research with the implementation of the Coulomb-viscous friction force model as a prediction model to prevent the carbon brush wearing capacity under different currents, pressure, salt concentrations, and temperatures has opened huge opportunities for its use in different conditions and industries. But COVID-19 pandemic led to a disrupted supply chain, labor shortage, and inconsistent manufacturing activity, hampering the carbon brush severely. However, the product demand is anticipated to increase in the forecasted years owing to the increased demand for automobiles and electronics for the increasing population, urbanization, developing infrastructure, and increasing key players in the market.

Carbon Brush Market Dynamics

The market is expected to expand at significant growth rate due to increased demand for Graphite Carbon brushes. A layered brush material is created by layering graphite and bonding it with resin. These graphite brushes stand out for their precise filming and superb riding on both commutators and slip rings. When operating in contaminated environments, the quick filming capabilities of graphite brushes are advantageous in safeguarding the commutator or slip ring. They are useful in minimizing the commutator threading that occurs in contaminated settings because of their low absorption and increased density. They are widely used in motors, generators, and other electrical equipment to transfer electrical current to prevent arching and electrical sparking. Also, when graphite compression is molded at high temperatures, is used as one of the standard brushes for the communication mechanism of a DC motor.
