The major companies covered in the report are SKF, Schaeffler AG, NSK Ltd, NTN-SNR, The Timken Company, JTEKT Corporation, Nachi Europe GmbH, Kinex Bearings and Fersa Bearings.

The European bearings market is dominated by 6 major global brands that have significant presence across all major end-user segments and regional segments.The bearings market is likely to be positively impacted by increasing demand for sophisticated bearings. In general, the demand for bearings with longer service life, higher efficiency and lower maintenance requirements is expected to grow significantly during the forecast period.

On the other hand, higher adoption of smart bearings is expected to reduce the replacement frequency of bearings, as smart bearings will be replaced on the basis of the actual condition of the bearing rather than on a predetermined replacement schedule. This trend is expected to reduce the growth in demand.

The research methodology is a combination of primary and secondary research. Secondary research involves desk-based research. Primary research involves interaction with market participants and getting their perspective and feedback on our analysis.
