Slewing Bearings Market: Growth Drivers

Increasing demand for efficient heavy machinery and equipment to propel market demand

The global slewing bearings market is projected to grow owing to the increasing demand for efficient heavy machinery and equipment across end-user verticals such as mining, construction, and material handling. The slewing bearings have a wide range of applications in these sectors. For instance, they are used to manufacture cranes, excavators, and drilling rigs, along with other forms of use. With the increasing population along with rising investment in infrastructure development projects, the construction industry has grown over the years. Along with rapid urbanization and industrialization, the demand for heavy machinery is likely to witness surging growth. For instance, according to a report submitted by Eurostat, the statistical office of the European Union, the construction sector in the EU-27 which excludes the United Kingdom was responsible for employing more than 17.4 million people in 2020. The number accounted for nearly 6.6% of the total regional population.

Slewing Bearings Market: Restraints

High cost to restrict market expansion

The global slewing bearings industry is expected to come across certain growth restrictions owing to the high cost associated with the production of slewing bearings. This is especially applicable to bearings production for machines that have heavy-duty use. In such cases, the industry becomes less accessible to smaller businesses who are then encouraged to look for alternatives in the business that justify the cost and the revenue thus generated.

Slewing Bearings Market: Opportunities

Increasing investment toward renewable energy sector to provide growth opportunities

The global slewing bearings industry players can expect high growth opportunities mainly owing to the increasing investment in the renewable energy sector, particularly in terms of wind energy. Slewing bearings are used to manufacture wind turbines, which are essential components of wind energy. For instance, in 2020, Europe installed 19.7 GW of new wind power capacity making the total regional capacity 220 GW as the region aims to achieve low-carbon economy status.

Slewing Bearings Market: Challenges

Supply chain disruptions to challenge market growth

The global slewing bearings industry is expected to witness challenges owing to the increasing events of supply chain disruptions due to several factors. In 2022, Covid-19 was the dominant reason for the significant lack in supply of slewing bearings. In subsequent years, other factors such as growing political turmoil and changing world power dynamics have weighed in further restricting the market expansion as buyers and sellers are unable to maintain a smooth flow of goods and services.

Slewing Bearings Market: Segmentation

The global slewing bearings market is segmented based on product, rolling element, applications, design, and others.

Based on product, the global market segments are internal gear type slewing bearings, external gear type slewing bearings, and non-gear gear type slewing bearings. The industry witnessed the highest growth in the external gear type slewing bearings which was led by the bearing type to handle high radial and axial loads. Furthermore, they offer a better range of applications since they can be used in a variety of industries such as construction and mining along with the renewable sector. Another type of frequently used product is the internal gear type slewing bearings which are applied in incidents where there is limited space or compact design is the main requirement. The application of non-gear gear type slewing bearings is related to the requirement of high precision and low torque such as robotics or medical equipment. In 2020, China witnessed an increase of 3% in its construction market from the previous year.

Based on rolling element, the global slewing bearings industry market divisions are roller and ball.

Based on applications, the global market segments are construction & transit equipment, renewable equipment, industrial equipment, and medical equipment. The industry registered the highest CAGR in the construction & transit equipment segment in 2022 due to the increasing demand for end products in the sectors of construction and mining. Furthermore, developing countries have witnessed dramatic growth in the construction sector in the last few years due to growing urban population and increasing infrastructure projects. In addition to this, the rising investment in renewable energy led by wind energy may lead to higher growth in the forecast period. While the application of slewing bearings is high in the medical industry and other sectors, the revenue is comparatively lower. As per estimates, the Indian medical equipment market may grow at a rate of more than 5% in the coming 5 years.

Based on design, the global slewing bearings industry market segments are double-row ball slewing rings bearings, cross roller slewing ring bearing, four & eight point contact ball, single-row four point contact ball slewing ring bearing, double-row ball slewing ring bearing, and bi-angular roller or taper.

Recent Developments:

  • In January 2023, igus, a Germany-based manufacturer and supplier of technical products that are made of high-performance plastics and include products such as flexible cables, plastic plain bearings, connectors, robotic components, 3D-printed products, energy chains, and ball bearings, announced the launch of iglidur PRT slewing ring bearing.
