August 26, 2019 | Machinery & Equipment

The Global Roller Bearings Market was worth US$ 21.05Bn in 2018 and is projected to exhibit US$ 26.71 Bn by 2026. The global market is expected to reflect a CAGR of 3.0% during the forecast period. Fortune Business Insights in a new study, titled “Roller Bearings Market Size, Share and Global Trend By Product Type (Tapered, Spherical, Cylindrical, Others), By Application (Automotive, Industrial Machinery, Aerospace, Others) and Geography Forecast till 2026” determines the market potential to get a clear picture on the trends and gain a strong foothold.

One of the main roller bearing market trend is the increasing use of machinery and heavy equipment in the automotive and manufacturing sector. This, coupled with the rising demand for customized machines, is driving the roller bearing market growth. Roller bearings help to reduce friction, increase load capacity, increase mobility, and the overall life span of machines. Machine tools used across construction, agriculture, and mining sector need roller bearing materials to handle heavy loads to reduce energy consumption. Hence, as per the size of machine tools, the diameter of roller bearings differs. This, as a result, is expected to fuel demand for roller bearings, driving the market. Increasing investments in mining and infrastructure development projects are stoking their demand.  

Automotive Companies to Witness the Highest Demand

Among different types of bearings, roller bearings are expected to outpace other products owing to the rising vehicle production. Manufacturing companies are putting continuous efforts to reduce vehicle emission and improve vehicle performance by reducing the weight of bearings.  Considering this, companies are investing in novel bearings, which is expected to foster the roller bearings market share. Several automotive firms have shifted their focus towards light-weight bearings in SUVs owing to their better stiffness and durability. Moreover, electric vehicle manufacturers are increasingly adopting roller bearings as they are highly durable and help in reducing the load on the engine. Enabled by this, the life span of vehicles with these bearings is likely to increase, augmenting the roller bearing market size. Other applications such as industrial machinery, aerospace are expected to witness demand for roller bearings in the forecast period. As per product, the demand for different types of bearings such as cylindrical, tapered, spherical, needle, and thrust is anticipated to increase by 2026.
