Covid-19 has impacted the market dynamics, competition, and global supply chain. The revenues have gone down in 2020 and may resume an uptrend gradually from 2021. Companies optimizing their operation and strategy will sustain and beat the competition.
Note: The summary below might not have included insights on covid impact since we have large number of reports.
Bearings are deployed for varied applications in the marine industry to enable rotational or linear movement while reducing friction and handling stress. They are deployed in various sections of a vessel for varied applications ranging from shaft support to winches. These bearings are constructed differently based on their locations. When selecting a bearing for a particular application, factors like bearing friction, load, and lubrication along with the design and construction of the bearing need consideration.
The COVID-19 pandemic has wreaked havoc on the marine industry, and it is not limited to the ports of China but has affected ports around the world. All trade linkages, including major import and export transactions, are on the verge of collapsing. As the marine bearings market is mostly dependent on the organic growth of the marine industry and commonly takes the same steps as the latter. Port closures, low cargo demand, and the government-imposed bans associated with this unprecedented economic disaster caused huge revenue losses to industry stakeholders in 2020 and 2021.
At the top of the crisis, when the shrinkage of cargo volumes turned out to be an added challenge to the structural market imbalance, the industry stakeholders adopted more discipline by cutting down on capacity and reducing costs to prioritize sustainability over the market share. As a result, the market maintained stable levels despite the reduced demand. In addition, several governmental authorities have proposed financial provisions for the marine industry. These are among the few key factors signaling the marine bearings market to take off to a healthy recuperation, growing at a rate of 3.1% during 2021-2026 to reach a value of US$ 5.2 billion in 2026.
Based on the bearing type, the market is segmented as ball bearing, roller bearing, plain bearing, and others. Ball bearings are further classified as angular contact ball bearing, deep groove ball bearing, and others. In a similar way, roller bearings are further classified as tapered roller bearing, spherical roller bearing, and others. Roller bearings are expected to remain the largest segment of the market during the forecast period, driven by the growing usage of tapered roller bearings across the industry for widespread applications.
Based on the material type, the market is segmented as metallic bearings, non-metallic bearings, and other bearings. Metallic bearing is expected to maintain its dominant position in the market during the forecast period. The ever-present risk of corrosion in the marine industry is the biggest challenge for bearing manufacturers. The metallic bearings offer high-load handling and excellent wear resistance capacity, but they eventually corrode in the seawater, unless protected from it. Hybrid bearings and non-metallic bearings are gaining traction in the market owing to their excellent corrosion resistance in the marine environment.
Based on Application type, the market is segmented as shaft, rudder, deck equipment, and others. The shaft segment is projected to steer the market growth during the forecast period, owing to the pivotal role of marine shafts in transferring rotational power from the engines to the propellers, which convert them into translational motion. The Deck equipment segment that includes precision equipment like gyroscope, is expected to witness significant growth during the forecast period.
In terms of regions, Asia-Pacific is expected to be the largest and the fastest-growing market for marine bearings during the forecast period. The region has a dominant presence in the merchant marine, fishing vessel, and offshore vessel segments. China is a dominant player in the region and it alone produces more than 90 percent of the world’s shipping containers. Although the marine-bearing supplier landscape in the region has been negatively impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic, the market is expected to recuperate gradually from 2021 onwards.
The supply chain of this market comprises several nodes including raw material suppliers, bearing manufacturers, container and vessel manufacturers, and end-user. The following are the key players in the marine bearings market.
Development of bearings with enhanced corrosion resistance to extend its lifespan in seawater, regional expansion, and long-term relation with customers are the key strategies adopted by the major players to gain a competitive edge in the market.
