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

$ 1999


The global ceramic ball bearings market reached a value of US$ 886 Million in 2017. Ceramic ball bearings are superior to steel ball bearings in a lot of aspects and are increasingly replacing them in various applications.

Ceramic ball bearings are significantly lighter and harder compared to their metal counterparts. They can self-lubricate and operate at appreciably faster speeds compared to steel ball bearings. Because they are harder than their steel counterparts, ceramic ball bearings are also more durable, and can last significantly longer. Moreover, since they do not rust, they are not as sensitive to moisture and lubrication compared to steel ball bearings. Ceramic ball bearings can also stand up to intense physical impact and perform extremely well when subjected under harsh conditions, such as elevated temperatures, lack of lubrication, and in high corrosion environments. Looking forward, the global ceramic ball bearings market is expected to reach a value of US$ 1,673 Million by 2023, growing at a CAGR of around 11% during 2017-2023.
