Escalating vehicle sales across emerging economies, such as China, India, and South Korea, will support the demand for bearings in the automotive sector. Rising urbanization and improving standard of living are expected to advocate the demand for new/pre-owned vehicles globally. According to the federal transport authority KBA, a total of 2.65 million vehicles were registered in Europe's largest economy in 2022, indicating a 1.1% increase from the previous year.

The need for proper maintenance of bearing in long-run operations could impact bearings market. Correct installation and application of bearings are essential to extend their lifespan. The adoption of new and efficient business models and the pressing need to address the negative impressions of climate change and environmental degradation would decline the demand for fossil-fuel-powered industrial equipment. The introduction of automation and electrification will however create new business prospects for equipment manufacturers, favoring product penetration.

Roller bearings industry is set to observe 8.5% growth between 2023 and 2032. Roller bearings are increasingly used in mining and construction as well as in railway and aerospace applications. These bearings can carry heavy loads and are preferred for their high mechanical efficiency, simple installation, repair and interchangeability. They also support high precision and exhibit long service life.


The introduction of supportive government initiatives to expand the manufacturing sector would complement the roller bearings industry expansion. Take for instance, in December 2022, China’s Customs Tariff Commission of the State Council, announced the implementation of a provisional import tax for 1,020 commodities starting from January 1, 2023. These tariff reductions would be applicable to machinery items such as e-ink screens, lithium niobate, and roller bearings for wind turbines.
