Lead Screw Market

Lead Screw Market – Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, Trends, and Forecast, 2020–2030

Global Lead Screw Market – Introduction

  • Lead screw is a component used as a linkage in a machine, to translate turning motion into linear motion. The performance of a lead screw depends on the coefficient of friction between the nut and the screw, which in turn depends on the material used for the nut and screw. Stainless steel is the most common material used in the manufacturing of lead screws. This material forms well, gives a great surface finish, and has good corrosion resistance. Lead screw is also known as power screw, and translation screw. Rolling, whirling, and grinding are the three basic ways of producing lead screw threads. Each method has its own pros and cons. Manufacturers are also manufacturing customized lead screws for end-users. Customization is especially helpful when end-users are replacing legacy parts that are no longer offered.

Advancement in technology projected to be a driving factor for the lead screw market

  • Advancement in terms of technology and rapid increase in investment on research & development are projected to lead to the introduction of new and innovative technology equipped lead screws in the near future. Thomson Industries, Inc., one of the leading manufacturers of lead screw has a technology called Taper-Lock technology. This technology assures that the connection between the lead screw and motor is secure, robust, and correctly aligned. The lead screws manufactured by Thomson Industries, Inc. with this technology can offer up to 30% more load capacity than other comparable products, without increasing installation footprint.

Rise in usage of lead screws in various applications anticipated to be an opportunity for manufacturers

  • Rapid increase in usage of lead screws in various applications such as linear actuators, machine tools, vises, presses, and jacks in different end-use industries is anticipated to surge the sale of lead screws during the forecasted timeline.  Lead screw is one of the most common component in electric linear actuators. Lead screws are majorly designed to reduce or minimize friction. Hence, it is commonly used for commercial and industrial purposes.

North America considered the largest market for lead screws

  • Geographically, the global lead screw market can be divided into five regions: North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Middle East & Africa, and South America
  • North America accounted for major share of the global lead screw market in 2019. The market in North America is anticipated to grow at a significant rate during the forecast period due to rising demand for customized designs of lead screws, and innovative product development with nanotechnology in countries such as the U.S., Canada, and Mexico, which is projected to surge the sale of lead screws in the near future.
  • The market in Asia Pacific is anticipated to expand at a significant growth rate during the forecast period due to rapid rise in usage of lead screw as a common component in linear actuators, especially in India, China, Korea, Japan, Australia, and other Southeast Asian countries. These factors are projected to surge the demand for lead screws in the Asia Pacific region.

Key Players Operating in the Lead Screw Market

Prominent lead screw brands or companies are estimated to face tough competition during the forecasted timeline. Companies such as Eichenberger Gewinde, MISUMI Corporation, Barnes Industries, Inc., and Power Jacks Limited are manufacturing lead screws with innovative sizes and light-weight materials and planning to launch more advance lead screws in the market. Companies are also undertaking mergers & acquisitions or signing agreements with regional distributors and dealers to expand their business in various parts of the globe.
