This can be attributed to its high demand from various end-use industries and its low manufacturing cost as compared to other types of plastic rolling bearings.

Global Plastic Rolling Bearings Industry Outlook

Product Definition:

A plastic rolling bearing is a type of rolling bearing that uses plastic as the ball bearings. The use of plastic bearings can result in a significant weight reduction when compared to traditional steel bearings, and they also have the ability to operate at higher speeds. Additionally, because they are made from non-metallic materials, plastic bearings are corrosion resistant and can run in dirty or wet environments without issue.


Round bearings are used in applications that require high accuracy, where the outer diameter of the raceway is a critical dimension. The round shape provides an advantage over other types of bearings in that it can be fully inserted into a raceway without being forced to cross-over or rub against the side walls. This eliminates problems associated with square and hexagonal type bearings, which often times have a tendency to do so when using them in narrowraceways.


Plastic rolling bearings are used in various applications such as agricultural equipment, construction machinery, material handling equipment and mining vehicles. The bearing is a sealed unit which is made up of plastic or other non-metal materials. These products have no oilers and are not required to be lubricated. They can also be re-lubed using dry film lubes if the need arises during the life of the product.

Application Insights:

The auto industry, construction machinery, office equipment and others are some of the major application segments. In 2017, the industrial machinery segment dominated the global market with a revenue share of over 40%. The growth can be attributed to increasing demand for plastic rolling bearings from various industries including oil & gas and power generation.

In terms of revenue, the industrial machinery segment is expected to grow at a CAGR of XX% from 2018 to 2030 in North America region owing to growing demand for high-performance products that offer long life span under heavy load conditions. In addition, stringent regulations regarding reduction in energy consumption by manufacturers are anticipated to boost product demand over the forecast period.

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 increasing demand from countries such as China, India, Japan, and South Korea. These countries are involved in rapid industrialization that has led to an increase in construction activities along with growing automotive production across Asia Pacific.

The plastic rolling bearing market is also driven by rising investments made by governments for developing infrastructure projects such as roads and railways which require constant maintenance over a long period of time. Moreover, due to rapid urbanization across emerging economies including India and China has led to increased spending on household appliances among others applications thereby driving product demand over the forecast period.

Growth Factors:

  • Increasing demand from the automotive industry
  • Growing demand for lightweight and energy-efficient components in various industries
  • Rising popularity of electric vehicles and hybrid vehicles
  • Proliferation of Internet of Things (IoT) and Industry 4.0 across different industrial sectors
  • Growing awareness about the benefits of using plastic rolling bearings over traditional metal bearings
