Bearings are machine components predominantly used to reduce friction between moving parts. For instance, a roller bearing is used to withstand load and allow machines to spin smoothly. With the innovation of the latest technologies in industries such as construction, oil and gas, and automotive, the application and functioning of bearings are also evolving in response. The introduction of sophisticated technologies such as smart bearings is likely to facilitate manufacturers in continuously monitoring bearing operations.

The market for bearings has primarily gained impetus from the rising production of vehicles. Additionally, the desperate need for energy-efficiency in vehicles and the increasing demand for bearings from the aerospace and defense industry are other factors boosting the market. However, the market is facing a challenge from the growing sale of counterfeit products.

The report segments the global bearing market based on product, end use, component, and geography. The product segment of the market covers plain bearings, roller bearings, unmounted ball bearings, and others. On the basis of components, the market is segmented into balls, rings, cages, rollers, and others. The end-use segments of the market include power transmission equipment, motor vehicles, aerospace equipment, oilfield machinery, construction machinery, garden machinery, and others. Regionally, the global bearing market is segmented into North America, Asia Pacific, Europe, and Rest of the World.  

Among the product-based segments, the unmounted ball bearings segment stood at US$33.3 bn in 2014.
