Driving Factor

Extensive Utilization of Ball Bearings in Automobiles to Support Market Growth

The Europe ball bearings market growth is anticipated to experience a stable trajectory owing to the extensive usage of bearings by automakers in the region. For example, the 2021 BMW M3 and M4 models feature lightweight wheel bearings with a higher camber range and a unique swivel bearing. European carmakers are also developing bearings for electric cars, although the bearing requirements for these vehicles are much lower compared to regular cars. For example, the Volkswagen Golf contains only 50 bearings. In general, ball bearings are widely used by the automotive industry to ensure smooth functioning of vehicles. In case of steering, for instance, bearings provide the necessary support to the steering unit, which runs from the cabin to the engine area. The indispensability of ball bearings in automobiles will enable stable growth of this market.
