Global Bearing Ball Industry Outlook

Product Definition:

A bearing ball is a small, spherical object that is used in bearings to reduce friction. Bearing balls are made of various materials, including steel, ceramic, and plastic. They come in different sizes and shapes depending on the type of bearing they are used in. Bearing balls play an important role in reducing friction between moving parts and help keep machinery running smoothly.

Ceramic Ball:

Ceramic ball, also known as ceramic rolling ball or bearingball is a precision spherical component used in bearings. Ceramic balls are manufactured using various raw materials such as silicon nitride, zirconia and alumina among others. The choice of raw material largely depends on the type of environment the product will be operating in such as wet or dry climate etc.

Plastic Ball:

Plastic ball bearings are used in rolling and cylindrical parts that require high accuracy, tolerance, and load capacity. Plastic balls are preferred over metal balls owing to their low cost and lightweight. The plastic material is usually injection molded into the desired shape for use as a bearing ball. These products have applications in various industries including automotive, aerospace & defense, construction equipment industry among others where precision is of prime importance.

Application Insights:

The industrial equipment segment accounted for the largest share of over 30.0% in 2017 and is expected to witness significant growth over the forecast period. The demand for bearings is anticipated to increase owing to its applications in a wide range of industries including oil & gas, construction, mining, food processing and packaging among others. In addition, increasing R&D activities by major players coupled with technological advancements are likely to drive the product demand further.

The automotive industry accounted for a considerable market share in terms of revenue as well as volume in 2017 due mainly to growing vehicle production across various regions coupled with high consumer spending on vehicles that are more technologically advanced than their predecessors. Increasing use of plastic balls along with ceramic or steel balls provides better accuracy while bearing rollers on car engines which results into increased demand for plastic ball bearings from automakers globally.

Regional Analysis:

Asia Pacific dominated the global bearing ball market in terms of revenue with a share of over 37.0% in 2017. The region is also anticipated to register the fastest CAGR from 2018 to 2030 owing to rapid industrialization and increasing foreign investments coupled with favorable government regulations for manufacturing facilities in the Asia Pacific region.

The growth can be attributed to rising demand for energy, which has led nations such as China and India into building massive power plants across their respective countries, thereby driving up industrial equipment production across numerous industries including oil & gas, construction, automotive etc., which will drive product demand over the forecast period.

Europe was estimated at USD X million in 2017 and is expected to witness significant growth over the coming years on account of growing R&D activities by various companies operating within Europe along with an increase in high-end machinery production by Airbus S.A., BMW Group, Fiat Chrysler Automobiles N.V.

Growth Factors:

  • Increasing demand from the automotive and aerospace industries
  • Growing popularity of electric vehicles
  • Rising demand for ball bearings in renewable energy applications
  • Technological advancements in bearing manufacturing processes
  • Growing awareness about the benefits of using ball bearings
