Plain Bearing Market ( Bearing Types - Journal, Linear, Thrust; By End Use - Automotive, Industrial (Aerospace, Energy, Construction Machinery, Farm and Garden Machinery, Oilfield, Machinery)) - Global Industry Analysis, Trend, Size, Share and Forecast 2016 - 2024

Plain Bearing Market: Snapshot 

The plain bearing market has been growing at a steady pace due to the increasing demand for motor vehicles, oilfield machinery, and construction work. A wide range of equipment used in the energy, aerospace, railways, automotive, farm and gardening, construction, and oilfield sectors make extensive use of plain bearings. 

The primary factor driving the growth of the global plain bearing market is the growing demand for motor vehicles worldwide. In addition, the rising demand for bearings in the defense and aerospace sector is aiding the growth of this market. Rising technological innovations are, however, making these bearings more durable and this hinders aftermarket sales. The growing number of counterfeit products is also hampering the growth of the plain bearings market globally. On the bright side, the introduction of smart bearings is expected to provide new opportunities manufacturers of plain bearings in the near future.

The global plain bearing market was valued at US$9.5 bn in 2015 and is expected to reach US$16.2 bn by 2024, registering a CAGR of 5.8% therein.

Automotive Industry Holds Considerable Share in Plain Bearing Market

Based on end use, the global market for plain bearings is broadly bifurcated into the automotive and industrial sectors. The industrial sector is further segmented into chemical, agriculture, food and beverage, pulp and paper, aerospace, and others. Recent trends show that there is a steady year-on-year rise in the production of motor vehicles and thus the automotive industry accounts for a considerable share in the plain bearing market. 

In the industrial segment, the construction sector holds a major chunk of the market in certain regions. In addition to the construction sector, oilfields and the aerospace industry are expected to contribute to the growth of the plain bearing market during the forecast period.

RoW Presents Lucrative Opportunities for Manufacturers of Plain Bearings

Geographically, Asia Pacific has been leading the plain bearing market and is expected to retain its lead throughout the forecast period. Continuous urbanization and the growing demand for automobiles in developing countries such as India and China is driving the Asia Pacific market. In addition to this, the falling prices of bearings bode well for the market in this region. South Korea, Taiwan, Singapore, and Japan have also been witnessing rapid growth in the automotive sector and many plain bearing companies in these countries are opening up manufacturing facilities in order to cater to the growing demand. The rising demand for infrastructure development is boosting the use of plain bearings in the construction industry, TMR finds.

The Rest of the World segment includes the Middle East, Africa, and South America. The Middle East has proven to be a lucrative region for the plain bearing market owing to its thriving construction and automotive industries. In 2012, NSK opened its new branch NSK Bearings Gulf Trading Co. in Dubai, UAE. Countries in the African continent, such as South Africa, have been observing an increased level of industrialization and this is expected to boost the demand as well as market for plain bearings in the coming years. 

South America is mainly dominated by Brazil and has several conducive factors contributing to the plain bearing market in the region. The ongoing development in the construction sector is the primary demand driver for journal bearings.

The key players operating in the global plain bearing market include SKF Group, The Timken Company, Schaeffler AG, NSK Ltd, NTN Corporation, RBC Bearings, Inc., JTEKT Corporation, AST Bearing LLC, GGB Bearing Technology, and Brammer Plc

TABLE 1 Global plain bearing market snapshot

Bearings are components made with high precision which enables the machines to move at high speeds or carry heavy loads with efficiency. There are several types of bearings such as roller bearing, plain bearing jewel bearing and fluid bearing among others. Plain bearings are simplest of the type comprised of a surface with no rolling elements. Based on design type, the plain bearing market is categorized into three segments: journal, linear and thrust bearings. The global surge in production of automobiles is driving the growth of the plain bearing market. In addition, growing demand for bearings in the defense and aerospace industry is also contributing to the growth of this market. Plain bearings are used in a wide range of equipment including automotive, aerospace, energy, construction machinery, farm and gardening machinery, and oilfield machinery among others.

The primary factor driving the growth of plain bearing market is the growing demand for motor vehicles globally. In addition, the rising demand for bearings in the defense and aerospace sector is also aiding to the growth of this market. However, the increasing technological innovations are making these bearings durable and hence hindering the growth of aftermarket sales. In addition, the growing number is counterfeit products in also hindering the growth of plain bearings globally. Moreover, the introduction of smart bearings is expected to provide new market opportunities for bearing manufacturers in the near future. Other technologies such as magnetic levitation and bearings cushioned with compressed air are also in the process of development.

The global plain bearing market has been categorized by types in journal plain bearing, linear plain bearing and thrust plain bearing. The journal plain bearing has been analyzed to hold the largest market share during the forecast period. The rising demand for construction in developing regions like Asia Pacific and Middle East and Africa are driving the growth for this segment. Furthermore, the falling price of thrust bearing is resulting into the fastest growth of this segment.

In terms of end use industries, the global plain bearing market can been broadly segmented in automotive and industrial sectors. The industrial segment has been further sub-divided into aerospace, energy, construction machinery, farm and garden machinery and oilfield machinery among others. The automotive segment has the highest market share in the end use segment. The dominance is attributed to the growing motor vehicle production globally.

Furthermore, the market has been segmented regionally into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Middle East and Africa and Latin America. Regionally, Asia Pacific region is holds the largest market share in 2015 and expected to dominate the market during the forecast period. The reason behind the dominance has been attributed to the growing demand for automobiles in this region. Furthermore, the increasing need for urbanization in the developing countries like India and China is further aiding to the growth of plain bearings in this region. In addition, the region has several manufacturing facilities for plain bearing.

In order to get a better understanding of the plain bearing in the aftermarket sales, a distribution chain analysis has been provided with respect to the aftermarket sales. Furthermore, the market share for direct sales and aftermarket sales has also been analyzed for the global plain bearing market. Moreover, the key players in the market have also been profiled in terms of their product segment, recent developments, financial overview and business strategies.
