Rising Demand for Heavy Machinery to Favor Growth of Cylindrical Roller Bearings Segment

The cylindrical roller bearings segment covered the highest share in the global market in 2018. The demand for these bearings is expected to rise on account of their rising adoption across industries such as aerospace and automotive. Cylindrical roller bearings are used in heavy machinery to carry and handle heavy radial loads at high speed and performance. The roller bearings market size is anticipated to further expand with the increasing use of tapered roller bearings. These bearings are primarily designed to handle axial and radial forces at the same time. These are integrated into defense and medical equipment to accommodate combined loads. In the world of bearings, spherical roller bearings are likely to gain prominence owing to their numerous properties. These bearings have the ability to easily mount and erect, are highly reliable, and can withstand shock loads. Furthermore, these bearings are largely used in international markets and expanding its geographical presence to all the industries, especially in aerospace and automotive. The rising application of these type of bearings is expected to drive the market growth in the forecast period.

The demand for roller bearings is increasing in applications such as industrial machinery, automotive, aerospace, and others. As per the report, industrial machinery roller bearings hold a 31.1% share in the global market.

  • January 2019: Schaeffler is on the verge of merging with companies namely INA Bearings India Pvt Limited and Luk India Pvt Limited. This expansion strategy will widen its existing portfolio of roller and ball bearings and other industrial applications.
  • January 2015: ERIKS NV arrived to enter into an agreement with The Timken Company to acquire the assets of a company based in the U.K. named Revolvo ltd. Revolvo Ltd. indulges in manufacturing roller bearings for industrial applications in process and heavy industries.

FOX Upgrades its Rear Bearing Shock Kit as per Customers’ Requirement 

Among the major players in the global market, SKF, Schaeffler, and Timken are leading. With the introduction of the 4th Industrial Revolution or Industry 4.0, companies are focusing on smart and automated roller bearings to further minimize the operational breakdown and enhance the efficiency of heavy machinery and equipment. Several companies are focusing on customized  bearings for their customers. For example, FOX’s FIT dampers were too heavy. The company addressed this problem by upgrading their roller bearing and fork damper to retain its customers. The newly introduced FIT4 fork damper & roller bearing kit is light-weight, has a smaller diameter, and is modified as per customer requirements. Another company, Schaeffler plans to merge with two Indian companies called Luk India Pvt Limited and INA Bearings India Pvt Limited in January 2019. The company aims to expand its product portfolio and geographical presence.
