Market Overview:

The global carbon bearings market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 5.5% during the forecast period 2018-2030. The growth in this market can be attributed to the increasing demand for carbon bearings from various end-use industries such as manufacturing, automotive, energy and medical. Additionally, the growing awareness about the benefits of using carbon bearings is also contributing to the growth of this market.

Global Carbon Bearings Industry Outlook

Product Definition:

A carbon bearing is a type of bearing that uses carbon as its primary material. Carbon bearings have several advantages over traditional metal bearings, including high strength, low wear, and low friction. They are often used in precision applications where high performance is required.

Rolling Bearing:

Rolling bearings are used in various industries such as automotive, aerospace and defense, construction equipment (wheel & axles), heavy machinery, power tools machinery and others. The growth factor for the rolling bearing market is high demand from the end-user industries due to its properties such as low friction coefficient (CFR) and wide temperature range. In addition, it also provides high radial load capacity compared to thrust loads which increases its application scope in heavy industrial applications.

Plain Bearing:

Plain bearings are used in applications where the outer race of the bearing is exposed and may be counted as one, two or three plain faces. The term “plain” is used for bearings with two or more surfaces that are generally cylindrical and either rolling-element free (SEF) or self-lubricating (self-lubing).

Application Insights:

Manufacturing was the largest application segment in 2017 and is expected to continue its dominance over the forecast period. The manufacturing of carbon bearings for various applications, such as machinery & equipment manufacturing, has a long history. Carbon steel is one of the most widely used materials for manufacturing these bearings due to its low cost and high availability.

Automotive sector emerged as another key end-use segment in 2017 owing to increasing demand from major automotive manufacturers such as BMW, Mercedes Benz, Audi etc., For instance; Audi¢â‚¬â„¢s parent company Volkswagen Group announced plans in 2016 to spend around USD 1 billion on new technologies research centers at universities across Europe including Oxford University and Imperial College London. This initiative is expected to result in increased R&D activities related to electric vehicles (EV) batteries which will eventually boost product demand across all Automotive applications over the coming years.

Regional Analysis:

Asia Pacific accounted for the largest share of over 45% in 2017. The region is expected to witness significant growth owing to the presence of key markets such as China, India, and Japan. In addition, increasing industrialization and rapid urbanization are also expected to drive market demand in this region over the forecast period.

The growing manufacturing sector across Asia Pacific is anticipated to fuel product demand from machinery OEMs such as textile machinery manufacturers and food processing equipment producers among others. Rising investments by governments in infrastructure development are also likely boost product demand from construction applications including bridge building which will further propel market growth over the coming years.

North America was valued at USD X million in 2017.

Growth Factors:

  • Increasing demand from the automotive and aerospace industries
  • Growing awareness about the benefits of using carbon bearings over traditional metal bearings
  • Rising demand for lightweight and energy-efficient products in various industries
  • Technological advancements that have led to the development of high-performance carbon bearings
  • Growing popularity of electric vehicles, which require efficient and reliable bearing systems
