Global Tribometer Industry Outlook

Product Definition:

A tribometer is a device used to measure the friction and wear between two surfaces. The importance of tribometers is that they can help engineers design products with less friction, which can lead to increased efficiency and reduced wear.

Four Ball Tribometer:

The four ball tribometer is a device used to measure the speed of rolling objects such as balls. It consists of four identical balls mounted on a metal frame and released at the same time from an overhead mechanism. The number of times each ball rolls between two consecutive marks is recorded and form the average speed in feet per second.

The four ball tribometer has several advantages over traditional methods, which makes it more popular among manufacturers, buyers,.

Bouncing Ball Tribometer:

Bouncing ball tribometer is a device used to measure the speed of trains. It consists of two metal balls connected by elastic, which are propelled by an engine-driven mechanism. As the train approaches, these balls hit each other and rebound back towards their original position. The time taken for this entire process is recorded and forms a significant portion of the overall transit time.

The global market for bouncing ball tribometer was valued at USD 1,30,000 in 2015.

Application Insights:

The aerospace industry accounted for the largest revenue share of over 30% in 2017. The growth is attributed to the increasing number of air travelers and rising demand for aircraft with better precision. In addition, a rise in passenger traffic is expected to boost product demand during the forecast period.

The automotive industry also accounted for a significant market share in terms of application type, however, it is anticipated to lose some market share during the forecast period owing to advancements made by competitors such as smartphone applications that provide real-time information on fuel consumption and emissions. Tribometer products are used across various industries including oil & gas, food & beverage processing and quality control testing among others which requires high precision measurement devices with enhanced features such as Bluetooth connectivity which enables wireless transfer of data between devices without cables or wires thereby reducing human efforts required while taking measurements resulting into reduced penetration rate observed till date among other factors contributing towards lower estimated CAGR compared to automotive segment over the projected period.

Regional Analysis:

North America dominated the global market in 2017. The region is expected to maintain its position during the forecast period. This can be attributed to increasing R&D activities and technological advancements in the healthcare sector, which has led to a rise in demand for diagnostic equipment such as radiometers, flowmeters, and others used for monitoring various processes taking place within these devices.

Asia Pacific is anticipated to witness lucrative growth over the forecast period owing to rising product demand from several end-use industries such as automotive industry and aerospace industry that are based out of China and Japan respectively.

Growth Factors:

  • Increasing demand from the end-use industries such as automotive, aerospace, and defense sectors
  • Growing popularity of tribometer in research and development laboratories for studying surface properties of materials
  • Rising awareness about benefits of tribometer among engineering students and researchers
  • Technological advancements in tribometer design and functionality
  • Growing number of distributors and sales channels for tribometers
