Bearing Market Revenue Analysis 2015-2021 vs. Future Outlook 2022-2032

From 2015 to 2022, worldwide demand for bearings increased at a significant CAGR of 6%, reaching US$ 130 Billion. Advancements in seal and lubrication technologies, as well as the use of lightweight materials in high-performance products, have increased the popularity of bearings in important sectors.

Manufacturers are focusing on the inclusion of electro-mechanical components directly into bearings to improve performance while also reducing size and cost. Prospects deteriorated substantially during the first half of COVID-19, as industrial activity came to a halt. Prospects have improved after the lockdowns were lifted.

Fact.MR expects the worldwide bearings business will expand at a healthy rate in light of the aforementioned trends. According to the analysis, the market is expected to grow at a healthy 7% CAGR from 2022 to 2032, nearly doubling in size.

Prominent Bearing Industry Growth Drivers

Incorporation of Advanced Sensor Units Motivating Bearing Use

Manufacturers are adding sophisticated sensor units into their designs as the need for high-performance bearings develops. The sensor modules aid in the digital monitoring of the product's axial movement, deceleration, acceleration, rotation speed, and load capacity. In addition, the Agricultural Internet of Things (IoT) has benefited in the adoption and ongoing monitoring of linked equipment and machinery. This advancement has had a positive influence on the market as well.

Several manufacturers provide smart bearings, the state of which may be continually monitored in order to predict failures before they occur. SKF, for example, provides SKF InsightTM, an innovation in intelligent wireless technology that is integrated into SKF bearings. This allows bearings to continually communicate their working status with internally powered sensors and data collecting circuits.

Adoption of Spurring Bearings in the Construction Industry

The bearing business has grown in lockstep with the global expansion of the building sector. Bearing demand is increasing as new projects are added to the industrial and residential building sectors. Crawler dozers, wheel loaders, hydraulic excavators, and other bearing items are widely used in major building construction, resulting in growing demand. The majority of this demand is predicted to come from the United States, India, and China, as enormous development and infrastructure projects are planned for the future decade.

Key Challenges Prevalent in the Global Bearing Market

Counterfeit Products may Impede Growth Prospects

Counterfeit products are a key impediment to the expansion of the global ball bearing industry. These counterfeit ball bearings can have a significant impact on the performance of the equipment, resulting in a decrease in sales.

Why Are Ball Bearings So Popular?

Ball Bearings to be Top Growth Driver in the Coming Years

Industrial ball bearings are a crucial component of modern machinery, and ball bearing demand is predicted to expand in lockstep with rising manufacturing activity. The category is expected to grow at a CAGR of 5% through 2032. Ball bearings assist to preserve energy by decreasing friction with other objects.

This machine element is utilized in a wide range of sectors, including automotive, household appliances, and aerospace, as well as industrial machinery, to create highly skilled gadgets that utilize machinery or comparable motor-driven linkages.

How would Mount Bearings Increase Profitability?

Growing Usage of Mounted Bearings in Numerous Industries to Drive the Bearing Market

The advent of mounted bearings in variety of industries; increased efficiency and long life with fewer maintenance needs of mounted bearings; increasing demand for specialized bearings for cost optimization; and increased development and adoption of sensor-based bearing units and IoT are driving the mounted bearings sector.

The growing usage of mounted bearings in numerous industries such as food and beverage, mining and minerals, and pulp and paper is driving the mounted bearing landscape. According to Fact.MR, the mounted bearing business will account for nearly 50% of total sales.

Competitive Landscape

Manufacturers in the bearing industry are more motivated to produce unique patented goods in order to meet the growing demand for optimum materials and designs.

Another key reason that is expected to enhance bearing demand throughout the forecast period is the Industry 4.0 movement, which is gaining traction in manufacturing and industrial automation. Market participants are progressively working on refining their goods' interior designs while also maximizing other elements such as cage design, among others.

Consistent developments in bearing technology, particularly for high-speed applications, are expected to drive market expansion. Leading bearing manufacturers are aiming to exploit important growth tactics, which include introducing new product lines, creating strategic alliances with current manufacturers, acquiring rivals, and obtaining collaborations with major organizations.

  • For instance, NTN Corporation has launched mass production and distribution of the "ULTAGE Tapered Roller Bearing for Vehicle Application" beginning October 2020, which is designed for automotive gearboxes and differentials.
  • NSK Ltd. produced a third-generation ultra-high-speed ball bearing for electric vehicle (EV) motors that can function at over 1.8 million dmN*1 in April 2021. It is the world's quickest grease-lubricated deep groove ball bearing for automotive applications.
  • AB SKF announced in March 2021 that it will invest SEK 400 million (US$ 45 million) in expanding and renovating its production site in Airasca, Italy. This investment will almost certainly introduce super-precision bearings (SuPBs) for industrial applications to Italy.
