    Market Highlights

    The general machinery covers a variety of machines such as engines, pumps, compressors, fans, and electric motors, for a variety of markets, including agricultural, food & beverage, industrial, health, and consumer durables. The manufacturing of general machinery is a major development axis for traditional industries. Bearings used in general machinery endure demanding operating conditions. Bearing manufacturers not only have to provide bearings with high reliability and long service life but also comply with environmental and safety legislation which are getting tougher by the day.

    The COVID-19 outbreak had a significant impact on the manufacturing industry and the general machinery segment was no exception. General machinery manufacturers witnessed significant disruptions in their supply chains and production activities. During the crisis, international supply lines were severely strained, resulting in some material shortages. The general machinery bearings market typically relies on the organic growth of the industrial sector 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 lack of new orders, supply chain disruptions due to lockdowns, and uncertain future demand.

    Amid the speculations of a second and a third wave, almost all key players have taken immediate measures by reducing capital expenditure and temporarily halting production to acclimate their operations to the minimum required capacity in order to reduce all costs. The manufacturing industry is gradually getting back on its track, paired with collective efforts of OEMs and other sectoral stakeholders towards mitigating the risks associated with COVID-19, is signaling towards healthy and quick recuperation, helping the market to grow at a CAGR of 4.2% during 2021-2026 to reach the figure of US$ 6.0 Billion in 2026.

    Market Segments Analysis

    Based on the bearing type, the market is segmented as ball bearing, roller 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, cylindrical roller bearing, spherical roller bearing, and others. Ball bearing is expected to remain the most dominant bearing type in the market during the forecast period, owing to the high load-carrying capacity of both, angular contact and deep groove ball bearing, due to which they are popularly deployed in various general machinery.

    Based on the application type, the market is segmented as industrial compressors; electric motors & generators; industrial fans, blowers & turbines; industrial pumps; and industrial transmission. Electric motor & generator is projected to be the leading segment of the market during the forecast period. Improvement in the energy efficiency of electric motors, which is highly influenced by the selection by bearing, along with increasing demand for electric motors and generators from the agricultural and industrial sectors is the major driver of the segment’s growth.

    In terms of regions, Asia-Pacific is expected to be the largest bearings market for general machinery,  owing to the rising demand for general machinery in countries such as China, India, South Korea, and Japan. Increased focus on urbanization in China and rapid industrialization in both India and China on account of favorable government regulations and policies are further expected to boost the market growth in the region. North America and Europe are also likely to create sizeable opportunities in the coming five years, driven by an expected rise in manufacturing, construction, and mining operations in these regions.
