Pune, INDIA


New York, United States, Nov. 28, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Ball bearings reduce rotational friction by supporting the load and facilitating smooth operation. A rolling bearing uses balls to maintain the gap between bearing races. It is composed of bearing rings, a retainer for the rolling element, and a rolling element. Its purpose is to connect two machine components that are moving relative to one another with low frictional resistance to motion. In the near future, the market is anticipated to be driven by the rising demand for ball bearings in various industries, including machine tools, automotive, and advanced medical. In addition, the rising use of precision engineering in the manufacturing sector has a significant impact on the market. This is due to demand from various industries, including aerospace and defense, shipbuilding, energy, and many others.

Utilization in Railways and EVs Drive the Market

The railway industry is focused on cutting expenses and increasing the rail's longevity. Bearings are used in railway gearboxes to dampen shocks and vibrations induced by the traction motor and wheels rolling on rails. Therefore, demanding operating conditions result in increased engine maintenance and downtime. Recent developments in bearings have boosted the railway industry's demand for bearings. Bearings are designed to withstand lean lubrication conditions, and the reduction in bearing size has boosted the overall gearbox efficiency, hence extending the range of EVs. As consumer desire shifts toward electric vehicles, developed nations strive to lessen their transportation reliance on fossil fuels.

Regional Analysis

North America is one of the leading ball-bearing markets due to its increasing industrialization and technical advancements. Developments in the aerospace and automotive industries have raised the demand for ball bearings in the region. The increasing production of passenger and commercial vehicles in North America drives the regional demand for ball bearings. The increased demand for electric vehicles is predicted to enhance the demand for ball bearings in the coming years. In addition, as a result of enhancements and upgrades to production facilities in the United States, OEM distribution channels would expand, hence increasing bearing demand in the region.

Europe is one of the world's biggest automakers, and the area is expected to maintain its prominence over the projected period. The car industry relies heavily on ball bearings to maintain the smooth operation of vehicles. For instance, bearings give crucial support for the steering unit, which extends from the cabin to the engine compartment. Due to the demand for ball bearings in automobiles, this industry will expand steadily. Due to its employment of cutting-edge manufacturing methods, Germany is anticipated to lead the Europe ball bearings market over the forecast period. In addition, several end-use industries, such as food processing, construction, and pharmaceutical, have an ever-increasing demand for efficient bearing solutions, contributing to the expansion of the German market.

Asia-Pacific is expected to witness significant growth in the ball-bearing market due to improving economic conditions and gradually establishing a manufacturing base in rising economies such as China, Indonesia, and India. China's strengthening economy and rising wages, particularly among middle-class purchasers, will boost the expansion of the country's automotive market. In turn, this will improve the bearing industry's market potential. China is also the largest producer of automobile bearings in the world, with one of the lowest production costs. In India, government initiatives such as "Make in India," which aims to strengthen the country's manufacturing sector, would also boost the ball-bearing market. Automotive component manufacturers are expanding their presence in India through various investments and the launch of new products. Increasing demand for high-performance, lightweight automobiles with enhanced energy economy also contributes to the expansion of the bearings market in India and China. In addition, the Chinese government has been encouraging domestic automobile production, which has raised bearing demand in the region.

The bearing market in Latin America is anticipated to experience growth over the forecast period due to the expansion of the transportation industry and other industrial sectors. In addition, the automotive industry's revolution and the digitization of process industries will stimulate the market throughout the forecast period. Collins Aerospace is strengthening its footprint in the Middle East and Africa by increasing its investments and establishing new ties in the region; the MEA is one of the most rapidly expanding regions for the aerospace and military industries. These industries' development is increasing the demand for bearings.
