Aerospace Bearings Market worth over $1.8bn by 2027

  • Published Date: December 8, 2021

Aerospace bearings market size is set to surpass USD 1.8 billion by 2027, according to a new research report by Global Market Insights Inc.

Market growth is attributed to rising air passenger traffic across the globe and increased aircraft requirements for the enhanced sales of aerospace bearings. Companies operating in the market are majorly focused on developing lightweight & fuel-efficient solutions and are significantly investing in R&D for material technology to develop ceramic & hybrid bearings. Furthermore, increasing preference for air travel along with increasing investments in the aerospace industry is likely to showcase considerable opportunities in the coming year.

Aerospace bearings reduce the axial & radial load and improve the fuel efficiency of an aircraft, which further leads to a reduction in aircraft maintenance. Aerospace bearings also aid in the easy movement of seats, doors, engine management systems, and components of flight control systems without any failure.

The global aerospace sector is growing at a significant pace and witnesses intense competition among major airline transporters across the globe. To enhance market penetration, major players in the aerospace industry are adding more destinations, renovating aircraft frequently, and decreasing pricing aggressively, which will further enhance the industry growth.

Growth in the aviation sector will flourish the aerospace bearings market expansion

The ball bearing segment is expected to account for 35% of the market share by 2027. Ball bearings are majorly used for transferring the energy from one shaft to another with reduced energy loss & friction. Resembling wheels, bearings enable devices to roll, which reduces the friction between the surface of the bearings and the surface they are rolling over.

The stainless steel segment dominates 50% of revenue share by 2027 on account of the ability to sustain any temperature or condition. However, fiber reinforced composites are self-lubricating and can carry heavy loads. Due to this capability of fiber reinforced composites, manufacturers are increasingly opting for fiber reinforced composite bearings in aerospace applications.
