Note: The summary below might not have included insights on covid impact since we have large number of reports.
Machine tools are highly customized goods that are tailored to the needs of customers. They are intricate machines that make parts of various shapes, sizes, and materials. Spindles are a vital component in the machine tool industry that are used to shape materials using high-speed rotation and pressure. With continuous advancements in modern machinery, there is a growing need for machining equipment that is faster, more precise, and more durable than ever before. Bearings are important components that guide and improve spindle movement. The use of high-quality bearings increases the efficiency and dependability of machine tool spindles, resulting in increased production and reduced machinery wear and tear.
COVID-19 has taken a toll on almost every industry that machine tool players serve. The global crisis left the machine tool industry in disarray. The demand for machine tools declined due to lockdowns, followed by reduced investment in the industry. The Machine tool bearings market typically relies on the organic growth of the Machine Tool industry and usually takes the same path as the latter. Key challenges that arose in front of the industry stakeholders on account of the pandemic were lower orders, supply chain disruptions, along uncertain future demand.
Amid pandemic-related shutdowns and economic uncertainties, all major stakeholders have responded by adjusting volume planning to suit the new landscape and focusing on addressing near-term financial management concerns. Robust government support across most of the regions, accompanied by joint efforts of OEMs and other sectoral stakeholders towards mitigating both the short- and long-term challenges of COVID-19, is signaling towards healthy and quick recuperation, helping the market to grow at a CAGR of 5.2% during 2021-2026 to reach the figure of US$ 3.7 Billion in 2026.
Based on the bearing type, the market is segmented as ball bearing and roller bearing. 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, cylindrical roller, spherical roller, and others. Ball bearings are expected to remain the larger segment of the market during the forecast period, driven by widespread deployment of angular contact ball bearings in the spindle of machine tool equipment. They consist of one or more rows of rolling balls between concentric grooved rings and are useful for both radial and axial loads in one direction.
Based on the application type, the market is segmented as metal cutting and metal forming. Metal cutting is projected to be the dominating segment of the market during the forecast period. Metal cutting application consists of machine tools that widely incorporate spindles in their design such as lathe, drilling, milling, boring, and grinding machines. Bearings are crucial parts that direct and boost spindle movements. The use of high-quality bearings improves the efficiency and reliability of machine tool spindles; thereby, increasing production and reducing wear and tear on machinery.
In terms of regions, Asia-Pacific is expected to be the largest and the fastest-growing market for machine tool bearings during the forecast period. Increasing demand for metal cutting machines coupled with the well-developed supply chain and significant expansions and investments in the automotive, oil and gas, and railways industries in the region are among the major factors driving the growth of the region’s market for machine tool bearings. Europe is also expected to offer sizeable growth opportunities during the forecast period, driven by increased demand for automation and precision in manufacturing processes as well as the rising demand from electric vehicles.
The supply chain of this market comprises several nodes including raw material suppliers, bearing manufacturers, OEMs, and MRO companies. The following are the key players in the Machine Tool bearings market.
To maximize production, machine tools are being pushed to their limits. Simultaneously, machine operations are becoming more and more complicated. Higher speeds and faster development put a lot of strain on the machine's basic components, particularly the spindle units. The industry is shifting towards developing new application-oriented bearings for industry-specific demands. Bearing fabricators are focusing on addressing client needs such as lowering energy losses and increasing capacity through lubrication methods.
