The proliferating air passenger traffic along with growing concerns to minimize CO2 emission from aviation sector are generating the requirement for enhancing the engine performance. The aircraft engine bearings are required to perform efficiently under high speed and thrust conditions. The development of new technologies including reconditioning of bearing, thereby enabling aircraft operators to lower the lifecycle cost along with reduction in CO2 emissions. For instance, in June 2019, Schaeffler AG announced that the company will showcase new solutions that uses one new and one reconditioned bearing to reduce the lifecycle costs. The new solution uses advanced heat treaded inner and outer rings and cooling lubricant is supplied by lubricant duct to enhance their performance.

Development of hybrid bearing technology that uses different material for inner and outer rings provide electric insulation to housing and thereby suitable for applications, where electric currents are present. The new hybrid bearings have higher speed capability, longer service life, high bearing stiffness, high wear resistance, and reduces risk of searing, thereby supporting the bearings market demand. The industry participants are continuously investing in R&D to develop new products. For instance, in September 2018, Ceramic Speed launched its new hybrid SLT bearing for the off-road market segment.
