Ball Bearings Market Size to Reach USD 21.90 billion by 2027; Adoption of AI and IoT by End Users will Favor Market Growth

July 28, 2020 | Machinery & Equipment

The global ball bearings market size is expected to reach USD 21.90 billion by 2027.  The increasing demand for robotic minimally invasive surgeries in the medical sector will spur demand in the foreseeable future, mentioned in a report, titled “Ball Bearing Market Size, Share & COVID-19 Impact Analysis, By Product Type (Self-Aligning Ball Bearings, Deep Groove Ball Bearings, Angular Contact Ball Bearings, and Others), By Application (Automotive, Industrial Machinery, Mining & Construction, Medical, and Others), and Regional Forecast, 2020-2027” the market size stood at USD 19.08 billion in 2019 and is expected to exhibit a CAGR of 2.1 % between 2020 to 2027.

Launch of Koyo’s Anti-creep Ball Bearings to Stimulate Expansion

Koyo Bearings, a JTEKT’ bearing division announced that it has launched a new range of
ball bearings with creep-resistant features to decrease housing wear and extend
component’s life. The new next-generation design can be easily installed vehicles, especially in the transmissions of hybrid vehicles (HV/PHV) and electric vehicles (EV/FCV), along with variable transmissions in conventionally-powered cars. The new bearing creep allows the inner or outer ring to rotate as per the axis during operation. The pinch point in creep bearing enables the ball to pass over with each rotation as it moves. The new design involves a circumferential groove in the center of the outer ring’s outside diameter to tackle the strain creep.

The company has conducted extensive CAE analysis using a simulation model based on the actual test device to be sure of the contour. The combination of JTEKT’s special coating in the outer ring to suppress housing wear caused by co-rotation creep can perform stiffer outer ring deprived of the size and weight consequence. The features in the new creep bearing make it important in the automotive industry owing to its creep-related wear. Moreover, its use in agricultural and construction equipment will help to cut down costs, which, in turn, will fuel demand.
