Slip Rings Market - Introduction
Slip rings are also known as rotary electrical joint, electric collector or swivel. Slip rings are used to transmit power and electrical signals from a stationary to rotating structure in an electromechanical device. Slip rings are increasingly being utilized to improve mechanical performance, streamline system operations, and eliminate damage prone wires from movable joints. These rings can be customized as per requirement. Thus, these rings are extensively employed in various sectors such as marine, wind turbines, industrial, aerospace, and defense. As slip rings work for the Ethernet transmission, contactless transmission, and high current transmission with low maintenance, its quality determines the efficiency or performance of the system. Extensive utilization of slip rings in diverse industries such as steel, wind, marine, aerospace, elevator, solar, mobile, , and packaging offers significant opportunity to the slip rings market.

Slip Rings Market - Dynamics
Innovation of wireless slip rings
Expansion of the slip rings market can be attributed to the innovation of wireless slip rings, which are increasingly being adopted by users due to several technological advantages they offer over electromechanical slip rings. Major advantages of these wireless slip rings include unlimited revolutions per minute (RPM), 360° continuous rotation, increased uptime and reliability, plug-and-play retrofit system, and reduced total cost of ownership. These newly designed wireless slip rings deliver higher efficacy in the transmission of electrical and power signals and can supply power signals to rotating and highly mobile industrial equipment. These rings are less expensive as compared to other slip rings and are a perfect alternative to their mechanical counterparts. Hence, development of wireless slip rings is expected to boost the slip rings market in the near future.
High maintenance cost associated with slip rings
Maintenance cost of slip rings is marginally high, as compared to that of other conventional motors. Moreover, high replacement cost associated with damaged slip rings hampers their adoption among end-users, thereby restraining the slip rings market.
