Ball Bearing Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2018-2023

The global ball bearing market reached a volume of 33 Billion Tons in 2017. The market is further projected to reach a volume of 47 Billion Tons by 2023, exhibiting a CAGR of 6.2% during 2018-2023. A ball bearing, also known as an anti-friction component, is a type of rolling-element which has two ring-like tracks with small, freely rotating metal balls between them. These metal balls provide a smooth and low friction motion by supporting both axial and radial loads. Ball bearings are easy to maintain and are durable in operations due to their simple design. They also help in supporting weight, facilitating efficient transmission of power and ensuring proper alignment of movable components. Owing to these properties, ball bearings are extensively used for high speed and rotatory applications in numerous industries.

Global Ball Bearing Market Drivers/Constraints:

  • Wind turbines require maintenance-free and high-quality ball bearings that help enhance turbine reliability and performance. The growing number of windmill farms worldwide is creating a huge demand for ball bearings in this sector.  
  • The manufacturers have developed sensor components for ball bearings which are used in conveyors, road rollers and electric motors. These components help in digital monitoring of revolution speed, axial movement, acceleration, deceleration and weight carrying capacity.
  • Manufacturers are focusing on upgrading the working capability of ball bearings efficiently at lower costs. They are also improving the characteristics of the existing bearings such as lowering torque, increasing temperature range, reducing weight, decreasing energy consumption, enhancing the lifecycle and refining friction resistance.
  • Counterfeit products act as the major hindrance to the global ball bearing market growth. These counterfeit ball bearings can drastically affect the performance of the equipment, leading to a decline in their sales.
