In the recent years, the automotive industry has been under constant pressure to reduce the vehicle's weight, minimize particulate matter emissions as well as improve corrosion resistance. For instance, several concerted efforts are being put together by the stakeholders to source for alternative brake disc materials that can fulfil these requirements better than the regular grey cast iron. However, this communication discusses some of the developing demands that the current and future automobile disc brake must meet. The paper also highlights some of the characteristics and prospects of lightweight aluminium matrix composite (SICAlight) rotor as a potential alternative to the traditional grey cast iron brake discs
