The global high voltage motor sleeve bearing market size was valued at USD 2.37 billion in 2022. The market is projected to grow from USD 2.55 billion in 2023 to USD 4.37 billion by 2030, exhibiting a CAGR of 8.0% during the forecast period.

High voltage motor sleeve bearings are the necessary components on both sides of the motor, allowing for alignment of the axial shaft and lubrication with hydrodynamic lubrication. These are made of hard or ionized materials offering high lifespan or infinite life. Also, it bears a heavy axial or radial load and requires less or no maintenance. The products are offered across the industry in different sizes from below 100 mm to above 600 mm for other applications per frame sizes.

However, the widespread pandemic disruptions in the global supply chain sector with halted import-export economies globally have shaken. Thus, major agro-based economies such as India, Mexico, China, South Africa, Canada, and others have noted a rise in domestic electricity demand. This boosted the demand for new energy infrastructure development across geographies. Also, the renewable infrastructure development investments and sustainability trends across geographies raise the valuation of the high voltage motor sleeve bearing market over the forecast period.


Reduced Demand and Pricing Volatility to Create Short-Term Disruptions across the Market

The COVID-19 pandemic caused an unsettling impact on the global production sector, with volatility across material prices and inadequate or reduced demand. This caused a downturn in the machinery and manufacturing sector due to reduced demand and the high cost of operations across immensely populated countries such as India, China, and others. However, the post-pandemic resurrected supply-demand and restructuring of product portfolios by key players have created a good environment for market growth.
