Timing Belt Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2023-2028

The global timing belt market size reached US$ 6.8 Billion in 2022. Looking forward, IMARC Group expects the market to reach US$ 9.2 Billion by 2028, exhibiting a growth rate (CAGR) of 4.7% during 2023-2028.

A timing belt is a ribbed belt that is used to create a synchronisation between the crankshaft’s rotation and the engine valves so that the valves will open and close at an appropriate time. A timing belt is fixed under a timing cover situated in front of the engine. It is commonly manufactured out of high-quality rubber with nylon-reinforced cords inside to extend the life of the belt. A timing belt is also used to drive some additional components like water pump, oil pump, balance shaft, etc. which are also required to be synchronised with the crankshaft.

Rising sales of new automobiles along with an increasing demand from the replacement market is expected to catalyse the global demand of timing belts. Automobile sales have been strong in both developed and emerging markets after a period of sluggish growth in many regions as a result of the global economic slowdown. This has catalysed the demand of timing belts from the OEM segment. Although OEM sales account for a major share of the global timing belt market, the bulk of the demand comes from the replacement segment. The size of the replacemet market for timing belts is significantly higher than the OEM market as most timing belts normally need to be replaced as part of regular maintenance every 60,000 to 100,000 miles. Europe and North America currently account for the bulk of the global timing belt market. The Asia pacific region, however, represents the fastest growing market catalysed by a strong growth in automobile sales in China, India, South Korea, Thailand, etc.
