Region :Global | Report ID: FBI106124 | Status : Ongoing



A linear motion equipment used as a rolling guide is considered to be linear bushing. It is being utilised in a combination with a shaft and has a design structure that uses the rolling of steel balls. With this unlimited linear motion is achievable as long as the shaft continues. Different names like linear bushings, linear ball bearings, linear bearings & slide bushings are used by various companies.

Linear bushings can be used in a several of ways to bring out any kind of functions as many characteristics come into play.  Selection of bushing style helps in pin down on which type of actuator to use, motor driven which is higher in price or cylinder driven which is low in price. Linear bushings are considered to be better for a more well-balanced linear guide design there are bearings or for low cost solutions.

The Linear Bushing Market is highly fragmented & will witness huge growth in future. As these bushings work with simple mechanism, uses the rolling motion of ball elements. Considering the fact that linear motion is gain with simple mechanism, therefore it can be utilized in a wide variety of applications. The application includes food processing, semiconductor manufacturing equipment & transportation. These application along with smooth motion, compact mechanism, & low friction may help in boosting the market.

The key players that are involved like Nippon Bearing, Rexroth(Bosch), THK are also benefiting the market. The players emphasizing more on producing quality range of product. As this equipment is mostly being used in important applications, therefore it is necessary to focus more on product & function. However, due to covid-19 the linear bushing market witnessed downfall owing to decrease in demand & shutting down of manufacturing industries. But, now it may witness steady & better growth over forecast period.

Regional Analysis:

Due to the accelerated demand in automotive & semiconductor industry, North America is expected to exhibit substantial growth in linear bushing market. Also, growth in industrialization & development in technological advances in the region are also contributing in market. Additionally, the involvement of key manufacturers focusing on quality & performance on their product is key factor for the growth. For instance, MISUMI, headquartered in Schaumburg, Illinois, United States manufactures the linear equipment in wide range. Their range of products includes linear shafts, shaft support, shaft collars, linear bushings, ball guides, spline shaft, oil free bushings, washers, oil free plates, guide rails, linear guides, cable carriers, ball screw, support units, lead screws, slide screws, cross roller, slide packs, v guides, linear rails, actuators. Therefore, these manufacturers can also be considered as driving forces contributing towards growth.

Europe market is projected to witness the growth in forecast period due to the rise in industries & technology. Manufacturers like Nippon Thompson, THK, Rexroth(Bosch) located in Japan & Germany are giant key players in this industry.  With the growth of industries & market players in the region, the demand of these linear bushing equipment has also begin to increase. For example, Rexroth (Bosch), located in Germany are big manufacturing company. Their products ranges from profiled rail systems, screw assemblies, linear bushings and shafts, handling systems, linear motion systems/actuators & ball transfer units/tolerance rings. Also, the rise in food processing, semiconductor equipment, medical equipment application have increased the demand of linear bushing in the region.

Furthermore, Asia Pacific region is anticipated to witness a strong growth in the market. This region has more potential to grow their presence in the market, as most of the key players are operating from this market. Manufacturers like Nippon Thompson, THK located in Japan giant key players in this industry.   For Instances, Nippon Thompson, in Japan are manufacturers of Needle Roller Bearings, Linear Motion Rolling Guides (Linear Motion Rolling Guides and Precision Positioning Tables). Additionally, India is considered to be the potential country to grow linear bushing market as key players like Isotech & LinTech are already operating from this country.

Middle-east region is predicted to witness a strong growth over forecast period. As the usage of these linear bushing in semiconductor, food processing, medical application is rising, therefore the manufacturing industries are also increasing in the region. Whereas, Africa may witness a steady growth as the key players are slowly emphasizing on expanding their business in this region & pre-planned projects in the region may boost the market.
