Global Miniature Ball Bearing Market to Grow at 7.2% During 2022-2027, Bolstered by Rapid Growth of Automotive Industry

Published on Jan 04, 2022

The latest report by IMARC Group, titled “Miniature Ball Bearing Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2022-2027,” finds that the global miniature ball bearing market size reached US$ 1.57 Billion in 2021. A miniature ball bearing, or instrument bearing, is a machinery component with an outer diameter of 22 millimeters or less. It consists of inner and outer rings, barriers, snap plates, balls, retainers, and brackets. Miniature ball bearings are used to relocate heavy objects as they are capable of handling large loads. They are also used for determining rotational accuracy due to their high-rotary parts. As a result, they find application in a wide variety of devices, including telecommunication devices, domestic electric appliances, and automobile parts.

We are regularly tracking the direct effect of COVID-19 on the market, along with the indirect influence of associated industries. These observations will be integrated into the report. 

Global Miniature Ball Bearing Market Trends: 

The market is primarily driven by the significant growth of the automotive industry. Miniature ball bearings are used in manufacturing mechanical components such as fan engines, wipers, and throttles. Besides this, ball bearings are used as lubricated aids to reduce friction, ensure smooth system operation, decrease noise, and offer low and uniform torque. In addition to this, rapid urbanization and industrialization, along with the growing sales of electric vehicles (EV), are propelling the market growth. These bearings also increase the pace with minimal vibration and enhance accuracy in the medical, instrumentation, and robotics industries. Furthermore, the rising demand for differentiated products, such as high precision and self-aligned ball bearings, is also fueling the growth of the market. Looking forward, the market is expected to reach a value of US$ 2.39 Billion by 2027, exhibiting a CAGR of 7.2% during the forecast period (2022-2027).
