In 2020, the overall sales for worm reduction gearboxes witnessed a massive decline due to the Covid-19 crisis as lockdown was implemented and all the factorial units were closed which led the manufacturing companies to face immense losses. Now in 2021, the global manufacturers are giving entire focus on improving their sales and profitability through product innovations and upgradations.
What are Leading Worm Reduction Gearbox Manufacturers Doing?
Leading corporations including NGC Group, Lenze SE, Flender Corporation, Nord Drivesystems Private Limited, Bosch Rexroth Corporation, Zollern GmbH, Rossi SpA, Sew Eurodrive GmbH, Sumitomo Heavy Industries, Eickhoff Antriebstechnik GmbH, Johnson Elctric Holding Limited, Comer Industries and Wikov Industry are making high investments in the establishment of research institutes in different regions to come up with improvements in their offerings.
They are adopting business strategies such as sales contracts, strategic alliances, acquiring technical expertise, product approvals, patents and events, joint ventures, partnership agreements, collaborations, digital marketing, mergers and acquisitions, capacity utilisations, technological advancements etc to lead the global demand for worm reduction gearbox.
For instance, Carlyle Group made an announcement of acquiring Flender Corporation, a market leader in mechanical and electrical drive technology from Siemens AG for Euro 2 billion on 29th October, 2020. The acquisition aimed at increasing the company’s product and service portfolios including gearboxes, couplings and generators for a variety of industries.
The Carlyle Group will support the Flender Corporation to fully achieve its potential as a standalone company driving accelerated growth through operational and strategic improvements, including investment into its technology and service platforms.
The equity for the investment will be provided by Carlyle Europe Partners, a Euro 6.4 billion fund investing in European opportunities across a range of sectors and industries and an affiliate of Carlyle Asia Partners, a US $ 6.6 billion fund focused on buyout and strategic investments across a range of sectors in the Asia Pacific region.
These two corporations are looking forward to introduce new, better and improved worm reduction gearboxes and serve the customers around the world while also pursuing growth ambitions. Carlyle’s extensive experience and industrial expertise with carve out transactions will fully support Flender Corporation with its continued growth and innovation.
Asia Pacific is predicted to rule the global market for worm reduction gearbox through 2030 owing to increasing demands from the manufacturing industries like automobile industry, food processing, agricultural machinery and power generation industries in India and China.
Presence of leading manufacturing companies that produce and distribute superior class gearboxes globally contributes to make China a leading region with the fastest growing CAGR rate. In India, the Government is encouraging the growth through proper guidelines for well organized energy consumption which is likely to augment the progress exponentially. Further, the rising construction business of techno-buildings is creating immense opportunities for the key players to extend their presence throughout the world.
What is Worm Reduction Gearbox?
Worm reduction gearbox is a type of gear system that enables production of high torque from relatively small electric motors or with low speed gear ratio. As small electric motors are generally low-torque and high-speed, addition of worm reduction gearbox increases its range of applications.
The worm reduction gearbox is mainly used in industrial equipment, presses, conveying engineering, rolling mills, and on rudders. Further, rising scope of application in elevators, off-road vehicles, security gates, and conveyer belts for its compact size and non-reversibility of the gear is likely to influence the development of worm reduction gearboxes.
Apart from high-torque, the worm reduction gearbox is durable, highly efficient, wear resistant, high strength, and requires low maintenance and less lubrication. These factors are expected to earn high traction in the worm reduction gearbox market.
The worm reduction gearbox plays an important role in construction of windmills; continuous emphasis on harnessing of renewable wind energy will possibly fuel growth of the worm reduction gearbox in the near future.
As product innovation is readily adopted in the market, manufactures are focusing on incorporation of advanced technologies to improve the quality and usage, thereby accelerating the growth prospects of worm reduction gearbox market.
About 75,000 Elevators can Spur the Demand for Worm Reduction Gearbox
Rapid urbanization across the globe, especially in emerging economies, is expected to fuel the adoption of elevators and lifts. For example, in India, the demand for lifts and elevators is expected to cross 75,000 units by the end of 2020, owing to favorable real estate reforms and growth in the construction sector.
In addition, demand for elevators and lifts in the country is also influenced by growing aging population (according to UNFPA, India will witness above 12 million senior citizens by 2020) that has prefers to use high quality lifts. This has influenced the elevator and lift manufacturers to develop safe, smart and reliable equipment, which is expected to support the growth of worm reduction gearbox in the coming years.
Worm reduction gear box provide speed reduction in medium to low speed applications, for instance lifts and elevators, where they are used to regulate the torque of the lift. Moreover, their mechanism offers efficient energy utilization as they have higher counter balancing effect.
However, development of hydraulic elevators, is expected to hinder the demand for worm reduction. In hydraulic elevators, hydraulic systems are used instead of traction gears. They have gained high traction owing to their easy instalment, less space requirements and can lift high loads as hydraulic fluid mechanism can offer greater lifting force as compared to traction elevators.
Combination of Higher Reduction Ratio and Low Reverse Power to Intensify the Use of Worm Reduction Gear Box
Worm reduction gearbox offers huge reduction ratio as compared to standard motors. This allows huge turning of the main gear with a little directional shift of the worm gear in the worm reduction gear box. This permits the user to decrease the speed while simultaneously increasing the torque.
This enables efficient handling, convenient direction change and reduced downtime of the engine. In addition, need for a backstop is eliminated as the set-up is easily simplifies with a worm reduction gearbox. This is due to its low reverse power that enables the gear to move in one direction.
Relatively in a standard gear set up, power reversing more components in the machine along with a backstop. Worm reduction gearbox is ideal preference for a machine that requires less speed and more torque, for example, a conveyor belt system. Second benefit lies in its simplicity as additional gears are not required to carry out to increase or decrease the speed of the machine.
