Market Overview:

The global Precise Bearing 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 precision bearings in machine tools, precision equipment, aviation & defense and other applications. In terms of type, ball bearings are expected to hold the largest share of the global Precise Bearing market during the forecast period. However, sliding bearings are projected to grow at a higher CAGR than ball bearings during the forecast period.

Global Precise Bearing Industry Outlook

Product Definition:

A precise bearing is an accurate way of orienting oneself in space. It is especially important for activities such as flying an airplane or sailing a boat, where even a small deviation from the desired course can be disastrous. Precise bearings can be obtained through the use of navigational instruments such as compasses and sextants, or by celestial navigation, which uses the positions of stars and planets to determine one's location.

Ball Bearings:

Ball bearings are rolling-element bearings that are used in precision applications owing to their high load carrying capacity, low friction coefficient and wide availability. They can be classified as free rolling or journaled. The former is generally employed where the axial loads applied are relatively light; for example, by hydraulic systems in automobiles or power tools with limited weight on the handle.

Sliding Bearings:

Sliding bearings are self-oscillating, rolling elements that can be moved in and out along a cylindrical surface. They are used to transmit radial force in the form of axial load or torque. The main types of sliding bearings include ball, roller, thrust (or thrust reverser), combined (or hybrid), and needle bearing.

Application Insights:

The machine tool application segment led the global precise bearing market in 2017 and is projected to expand at a CAGR of XX% over the forecast period. Precise bearings help eliminate vibration, offering smooth running and high-performance results for various industries including automotive, industrial machinery, construction equipment, mining equipment and aerospace & defense. The use of precision bearings helps improve productivity by reducing maintenance costs as well as time required for repair operations.

Precision equipment is expected to be one of the fastest-growing segments during the forecast period owing to increasing demand from end users such as oil & gas companies for drilling activities coupled with stringent regulatory norms regarding environmental protection across various regions including North America and Europe Pacific China Latin America Middle East & Africa on account of which manufacturers are investing more in R&D activities related to new product development along with technological innovations that can offer better performance at a lower cost thereby contributing toward segment growth during the estimated time frame.

Regional Analysis:

Asia Pacific is expected to be the fastest-growing regional market with a CAGR of XX% from 2018 to 2030 owing to rapid industrialization and increasing foreign investments in the manufacturing sector. In addition, rising disposable income levels are anticipated to fuel product demand over the forecast period.

The machine tool industry in China is expected witness significant growth on account of technological advancements coupled with an increase in foreign direct investments by global players such as Siemens AG and Skoda for manufacturing various types of machines including robots, automation tools, computer numerical controllers (CNC), etc. This will drive product demand over the forecast period.

Europe accounted for a major share owing to stringent regulations regarding workplace safety coupled with high standards set by organizations such as OSHA, ANSI/ASSE B 18.2-2011 which define requirements for safe work practices pertaining bearing handling procedures along with other machinery components installation at worksites across industries including construction, automotive.

Growth Factors:

  • Increasing demand from the automotive and industrial sectors
  • Growing popularity of electric vehicles
  • Rising investments in research and development by Precise Bearing manufacturers
  • Emerging economies offering lucrative growth opportunities for Precise Bearing market players
  • Proliferation of online retail channels
