Global Flexible Shaft Couplings Market: Overview
The flexible couplings help in transmitting torque from a shaft to another one in conditions such as there is the presence of angular and axial misalignment, radial, and rigid couplings do not provide any options. Based on the type of the load condition, the design of the flexible couplings is done. The types of flexible couplings that are available in the market are elastomeric element, mechanical element, and disc type or metallic membrane coupling.
Global Flexible Shaft Couplings Market: Segmentation
The global market for the flexible shaft couplings is fragmented into end use, application, and type. The end use of the flexible shaft couplings market is segregated into power and energy, tire manufacturing, automotive industry, food processing industry, steel industry, mining industry, aerospace industry, marine industry, and others. Based on the application, the market is categorized into anti-vibration, resolver, fans and blowers, compensating, stepper and servo motors, and others. Depending on the type, the market is divided into mechanical element flexible shaft couplings, elastomeric element, and metallic membrane/disc type governing. The mechanical element flexible shaft couplings segment is further sub-segmented into gear coupling, flexible link coupling, chain coupling, metal ribbon coupling, and others. The elastomeric element segment is sub-categorized into elastomeric shear coupling and elastomeric compression coupling. The metallic membrane/disc type governing is sub-classified into flexible disc coupling and diaphragm couplings.
Global Flexible Shaft Couplings Market: Growth Factors
There are wide applications of flexible shaft couplings in the end-use industries such as manufacturing, mining, etc. The significant growth of these end-use industries will project to improve the market of flexible shaft couplings market in the future period. Various end-use industries across the world are trying to improve their operational efficiency by implementing the six sigma technique, which will, in turn, improve the growth of the flexible shaft couplings market. The manufacturers are trying to improve the couplings by using materials of low weight, offering good qualities of inertia, and minimizing the space that is required. All these factors will increase the demand of flexible shaft couplings. Some factors that are restraining the market for flexible shaft couplings are the weakening conditions of the export and the development of the products that are of low quality from the local vendors are affecting the market negatively.
