Multiple Factors to Bolster Market Growth
Bearings are machine components that are used to minimize friction between moving rotary parts and to support rotating parts to achieve the desired motion. Bearings are employed in a variety of industries, including automotive, aerospace, railway, and heavy machinery.
The development of wind turbine infrastructure in emerging economies such as China, Brazil, Mexico, and India, rising demand for high-performance bearings for agricultural equipment, and worldwide industrialization are the primary factors driving the global market’s growth.
COVID-19 to Have Temporary Impact on the Global Market
The COVID-19 pandemic has swept the globe. The declaration of COVID-19 as a pandemic in March 2020 resulted in widespread lockdowns and the closure of business operations, affecting the worldwide economy. Due to revenue losses, the lockdowns have also resulted in the entire closure of manufacturing facilities, greatly reducing the adoption of bearing solutions and impeding the growth of the bearings industry. The spread of the COVID-19 virus has had a huge impact on the automotive industry, which is today facing unprecedented uncertainty. The pandemic has had a significant influence on automotive production. The disruption of supply chain operations is also to blame for the slowdown in manufacturing activities, which is delaying vehicle production and stifling market expansion. In addition, the fall in vehicle demand caused by the COVID-19 pandemic is impacting the growth of the bearings market.
The global bearing industry has been segmented based on product type and application.
Based on product, the global bearing market has been segmented into plain bearing, ball bearing, roller bearing, and others. The ball bearing segment is anticipated to be dominant throughout the forecast period due to growing uses from various industry verticals like automotive, railway, and aerospace.
Based on application, the global bearing market has been segmented into automotive, electronics, aerospace & defense, construction, and others. The automotive segment captured the largest share in the global bearing market over the forecast period owing to the increasing sales of passenger cars and commercial vehicles in the developed and developing regions.
APAC to Lead the Global Market
The Asia Pacific is likely to hold the largest share and increase at the fastest rate over the forecast period. This growth is linked to improvements in electric vehicle infrastructure and the growing number of windmill farms in emerging economies such as China and India.
Europe to Hold the Second Spot in the Global Market
Europe ranked second in the worldwide bearing market. Due to the presence of large automobile manufacturing plants and significant demand for high-performance machines from the construction, power, and aviation industries, it is likely to increase significantly throughout the projection period.
