Market Overview:

The global ceramic ball bearings market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 5.5% during the forecast period from 2018 to 2030. The growth in this market can be attributed to the increasing demand for ceramic ball bearings in various applications, such as bicycles, medical equipment, agricultural equipment, electric motors, and others. In addition, the growing demand for miniaturized and high-speed devices is also contributing to the growth of this market.

Global Ceramic Ball Bearings Industry Outlook

Product Definition:

A ceramic ball bearing is a bearing made out of ceramic materials. They are usually made from silicon nitride (Si3N4) or zirconia (ZrO2). Ceramic bearings have several advantages over traditional steel bearings: they are lighter, they can operate at higher temperatures, and they have a lower coefficient of friction. This makes them ideal for high-speed applications such as electric vehicles and wind turbines.

Zirconium Oxide:

Zirconium oxide is a ceramic material, which has the property of non-magnetic properties. It is produced by high temperature calcination of zirconia. ZrO2 has the structure similar to that of alumina (Al2O3) and can be treated in many ways like alumina.

Silicon Nitride:

Silicon nitride is a ceramic material that contains silicon and nitrogen. Silicon nitride has the highest melting point of any material, which makes it useful in applications where high temperature resistance is required. It also offers low thermal expansion, high hardness, and excellent corrosion resistance properties making it suitable for use in applications such as hypersonic aircraft engines and turbine blades.

The global ceramic ball bearings market was valued at USD 8,15 billion in 2016.

Application Insights:

The bicycle application segment led the global market in 2017. The demand for bicycles is growing rapidly across the globe owing to rising disposable income of consumers, increasing employment opportunities and easy availability of loans. As per the National Association of State Bicycle Governments, U.S., an estimated 915 million Americans had ridden bikes at least once in 2016 which was a rise from 784 million riders in 2010.

The electric motor application segment is projected to witness significant growth over the forecast period due to rapid industrialization and urbanization along with increasing disposable income levels among certain population groups such as millennials and Generation Z who prefer electronic gadgets over traditional mechanical ones owing to their low maintenance cost, environmental benefits and convenience factor. Ceramic ball bearings are used for reducing friction between rotating parts resulting in increased efficiency while lowering power consumption thus driving its demand globally over the next few years.

Regional Analysis:

Asia Pacific dominated the global market in 2017 and is expected to continue its dominance over the forecast period. The growth of this region can be attributed to rising product demand from various application segments, such as electric motors, industrial machinery, and other. China is one of the largest markets for ceramic ball bearings due to increasing production levels in this country. In addition, low manufacturing costs coupled with availability of cheap labor are some other factors that have contributed toward regional growth.

The Asia Pacific has been witnessing strong economic growth on account of rapid development in emerging economies such as India and China.

Growth Factors:

  • Increasing demand from the automotive industry for ceramic ball bearings is expected to drive the market growth.
  • Growing demand for electric vehicles is also anticipated to boost the market growth in the coming years.
  • Rising adoption of ceramic ball bearings in medical devices is another key factor that would fuel the market growth over the forecast period.
  • Growing popularity of renewable energy sources such as wind and solar is projected to create new opportunities for ceramic ball bearings manufacturers in near future.
