Global Sprag Clutches Industry Outlook

Product Definition:

A sprag clutch is a type of brake that uses one or moresprags to stop a rotating shaft. The sprag clutchconsists of two metal discs with teeth on the edge,surrounded by a coil spring. When the rotating shafttries to move faster than the sprags can turn, theyjam against the teeth and stop it.

Standard Sprag Clutches:

Sprag clutches are used to transfer sprags or small parts in a machine tool spindle. They are also used for holding workpieces during machining operations and for imparting final finishing to the workpieces. The growth factor of standard sprag clutches is determined by two major factors, namely type of spindle and application area. In general terms, there can be classified into two types of standard Sprag Clutches; radial & axial clutch types.

ARO Duty Sprag Clutches:

ARO duty sprag clutches are used in the manufacturing of automotive parts such as drive belts, fan blades, and other engine components. The product is manufactured using high-quality raw materials to ensure durability and performance for a longer period. It offers superior strength along with low coefficient of friction which increases its application in heavy-duty applications.

Application Insights:

The global demand for sprags has witnessed a paradigm shift due to the growing need for efficient clutch designs in industrial applications. Sprag clutches are used in various industries including printing machines, centrifugal pumps, textile machinery and fan drives among others. The centrifugal pump segment is expected to witness significant growth over the forecast period owing to its wide application scope including municipal water treatment plants, oil & gas refineries and food processing plants among others.

Printing machines were the largest application segment of sprags with a volume share of over 30% in 2017. These clutches provide reliable performance under heavy workloads while maintaining high efficiency as compared to standard friction products. They also offer easy maintenance along with low operational cost which makes them highly preferred by several OEM manufacturers across the globe who are constantly trying to improve their product design flexibility while meeting stringent requirements of industrial applications worldwide.

Regional Analysis:

Asia Pacific dominated the global market in 2017 and is expected to continue its dominance over the forecast period. The region has been witnessing strong economic growth on account of increasing foreign investments coupled with rising industrial activities. China, India, Japan, South Korea are some of the prominent countries that have been experiencing strong economic growth over past few years.

The demand for sprags in this region is mainly driven by their application in printing machines and textile machinery industries for tensioning purposes on printed circuit boards as well as fabrics during manufacturing processes such as printing ink transfer or fabric dyeing/washing etc.

North America accounted for a significant share owing to presence of numerous manufacturers along with high purchasing power of consumers and rapid technological advancements across all industry verticals including automotive & transportation, aerospace & defense among others.

Growth Factors:

  • Increasing demand from the automotive industry for fuel-efficient vehicles
  • Growing popularity of electric and hybrid vehicles
  • Rising demand for clutches in construction and mining equipment
  • Increasing penetration of Sprag Clutches in the industrial sector
  • Technological advancements that improve the performance and efficiency of Sprag Clutches
